Can individuals mine bitcoin?  If so, is it worth doing at todays prices?

BAM

Yes, individuals can mine bitcoin. The profitability of mining bitcoin depends on the current price of bitcoin, the difficulty of the mining process, and the hash rate of the miner‘s hardware. At today‘s prices, it is not worth doing unless one has access to extremely powerful, specialized hardware that can process the proof of work calculations quickly.
Although some people may mine Bitcoin at home for a variety of reasons, even if it results in a loss. Some people may mine Bitcoin at home for educational purposes, to learn more about how cryptocurrency works and how the technology works. Others may mine Bitcoin at home because it gives them a sense of control and autonomy over their own finances, as well as the ability to potentially profit from the appreciation of Bitcoin over time. Ultimately, it is up to each individual to decide why they may mine Bitcoin at home, even if it results in a loss.
