Bitcoin hash-rate reaches ATH, BTC in Billions and Space with Satellites 2.0
Bitcoin hashrate reaches all-time high
At the 3rd of May the Bitcoin hashrate hit a new record. Despite the halving getting closer, this data shows there are more and more mining rigs turned on resuling in an increasing hashrate.
Within a couple of days the reward will half from 12,5 BTC to 6,25 BTC for each new block.
But apparently, this is not (yet) a reason for the miners to shut down and “wait and see’’.
Yesterday, the mining difficulty rose with 0,92% as a respons to this increasing hashrate. The halving is expected to happen at the 11th or 12th of May.
