Bitcoin hashrate has increased 42% in the past 3 months while BTC price has increased 36%

While Bitcoin price has been trading above $ 60,000 for most of the past 28 days, the network’s hashrate also increased significantly. Since August 13, the Bitcoin hashrate has increased 42% from 110 exahash per second (EH / s) to 157 EH / s today. In addition, after 9 consecutive difficulty changes, Bitcoin mining will be 50% more difficult in the next 2 weeks than it was 3 months ago.

Bitcoin hashrate of after Price increase

At the time of writing, the Bitcoin hashrate is approaching 157 EH / s and around 14 identified mining pools are contributing hash power to the network. 16.39 of these exahash or 10.24% of the network are mined by anonymous miners and the hashrate is classified as “unknown”.

The unknown hashrate is the fifth largest mining “pool” that contributes to the network. The hashrate increases with the price of BTC and is 42% higher than it was 3 months ago, and that’s about 1 month after China cracked down on the miners.

Bitcoin is 50% more difficult to mine than it was 3 months ago

Over the past 3 months, the average hashrate shows that Bitcoin’s hashrate is up to 180 EH / s at some point and has had 3 peaks above the 180 EH / s region since October.

The price has been hovering above the $ 60,000 area since October 15 and has fallen below once during that time. As the hashrate is slowly increasing, Bitcoin’s network difficulty will correct itself 9 times in a row by the end of this week. Accordingly, 9 adjustments correspond to a 50% harder Bitcoin mining as of July 17, 2021.

4 pools account for 58% of network processing power

Currently, the top 4 mining pools account for 58.6% of the network hashrate over the past 3 days. F2pool is the largest mining pool with 28.51 EH / s (17.8%) and Antpool accounts for 16.3%. Foundry USA accounts for 12.69% of the world’s hashrate and is now the third largest mining pool. The foundry pool is doing around 20.32 EH / s at the time of writing.

Miners can make anywhere from $ 34 to $ 45 a day

follow statistical, the most profitable miners on the market make decent profits ranging from $ 34 to nearly $ 45 per day, depending on price, current mining difficulty, and electricity costs of $ 0.07 / kWh. Microbt Whatsminer M30S ++ (112 TH / s) brings in $ 44.77 per day at current BTC rates and Bitmain Antminer S19 Pro (110 TH / s) brings in $ 44.24 per day.

Canaan’s top model is the Avalonminer 1246 (90 TH / s), which can fetch around $ 34.92 every 24 hours. When the new Bitmain Antminer S19 XP goes live, it can earn around $ 58.2 per day with hash power of 140 TH / s. However, the device is not expected to go on sale until July 2022.
