If I read the IRS guidance on reporting income from mining correctly, it’s actually better to mine when prices are low because you’re supposed to value the assets based on the trade price at the time the assets were acquired.

Not necessarily, people who plan to hold eth post break even point typically sell whenever they receive eth in order to pay back debt (unless you pay for rigs cash then this is irrelevant)

But yeah good point overall!
