I've got a few questions about difficulty,thanks to an article claiming that BTC will fall to $10 by the middle of this year so anyway,when the value drops significantly,does the mining difficulty significantly enough for smaller miners to benefit again or is this just a case of ever growing difficulty that'll continue as long as BTC exists?

Would like some help in understanding this better.

Articles that led me to think this:

If bitcoin crashes to that level the only people able to operate profitably will be stealing electricity.  I guess if you consider electricity theft to be a necessarily small time activity, then the answer to your question is yes.

But I wouldn't worry about it.  Williams is a moron.
