As a result, the miner revenue to production cost momentum started to increase.

The Miner Revenue Momentum (MRM) is a measure of the combined profitability of miners at a given point in time, relative to a long-standing baseline. This assessment provides valuable insights into the state of the mining industry, as it can indicate whether revenue multiples are improving or deteriorating compared to the yearly average.

An MRM greater than 0 suggests that the mining industry is experiencing an increase in revenue multiples, indicating improved profitability for miners. Conversely, an MRM less than 0 suggests that the mining industry is experiencing a decrease in revenue multiples, suggesting less profitability for miners.

At the time of writing, the MRM turned positive.
