Not going to happen unless the ban is by US govt.
@ZTR already posted some screenshots of GTX 1060 (in eBay) for ~90-100$ in the whatsapp group.
Some cases are always there but I doubt people here buying 35k cards from olx on a large scale.Also if demand for mining decreases significantly then prices on shopping sites too will drop accordingly which again makes buying used cards a less attractive option.
Now this mobo specially for mining
It has been out for some time now & people are actually running 19 cards on it(check amazon.com reviews).
At last, dreams come true
Baap re baap Itna. Is saal to bhul jao ki Graphic Card theek rate par milega.
a good read from Nvidia
Nvidia speaks out against rising price of GPUs due to cryptocurrency mining
yes it may be a "good read" but we all know, both Nvidia and AMD are taking advantage of the cryptocurrency demand of GPUs.
Both could have released more cards to meet the increasing demand, all this talk is just PR.
Nvidia and AMD do not "make" the chips. TSMC and GlobalFoundries do. And they have a fixed throughput. Making another plant would also require more engineers and you don't get such skilled engineers out of thin air.
Nvidia and AMD are not taking advantage of this, its just simple demand & supply cycle of economy.
Though the Sales of AMD & Nvidia have increased a lot due to Cryptocurrency. but their main goal is to provide gaming experience to all gamers world-wide which is not happening right now. and there might be a fear that PC gaming will die eventually (ideal situation) and people will shift to console gaming.

Iceland will use more electricity mining bitcoins than powering homes
If this trend continues down the line in future we may see exorbitant energy pricing and not to mention increased pollution.
