Don't think $15/TB will ever be back
Of course it will be. That's like saying you'll never need more than 640K of RAM. Bigger storage sizes will come out, and Chia will eventually go away.

If you think that, then the industry will never progress.

i thought mining was done with gpus for ETH, and BTC mining was with specialized miners. Is crypto really why hdd prices are high? Doesn't make sense to me. HDD cant be used for computations wtf am i missing lol or is it a hot new sh!t coin that for some reason uses hdd?

Yep, Chia. They have proof of work, going to try proof of stake and now - proof of space. Crypto bros need to keep reinventing things to keep making money.
