Yeah, I've seen a lot of videos popping up on YT about the price drops. So far I haven't seen anything massive. I'm curious how things will turn out when XMR gets it's own ASIC. That's gonna suck overall.
I bet the difficulty increase of eth was caused by the new ASIC miners being tested on a massive scale. Now they have been well tested they'll sell them off and move to the next most profitable coin to mine .
