Bitcoin Hashrate Climbs Past 140 Exahash per Second
In a week’s time on May 12, 2020, the BTC blockchain will experience the third block reward halving since the inception of the network back in 2009. The event implies that miners who find blocks will only get 6.25 BTC per block, as against the present 12.5 BTC they will obtain today. Despite the five hundred cut in revenue seven days from now, miners have increased processing power quite an bit within the previous couple of weeks. The crypto-analysis firm Glassnode revealed on Sunday that the BTC chain saw spill 140 exahash per second (EH/s), which is an all-time high (ATH) for the network.
Market prices also show that BTC values spiked to $9,300 per unit on April 30 and stayed above the $9K range, up until Sunday at 8 a.m. EST. Since the first morning trading sessions on March 3, the worth has been hovering below the $9K area, but above the support at $8,500. BTC’s overall hashrate has increased 10X since the worth hit $19,600 on Bitstamp on December 17, 2017. At that point, the hashrate was only 14EH/s and it's since increased 935%. BTC’s SHA256 hashrate was over 100EH/s by the tip of October 2019. the numerous leave out 140EH/s on Sunday didn’t last very long and statistics from charts.Bitcoin.com show the hashrate is 110EH/s on Monday.

With the halving only every week away, the cryptocurrency’s price and hashrate are the 2 key statistics investors are going to be watching before, on, and after May 12. U.S. News & World Report senior investing reporter John Divine says the halving could be a stark contrast to the recent stimulus packages and fiat creation.
“Previous halvings, in 2012 and 2016, respectively, were followed by huge run-ups within the price of bitcoin; halvings are fundamentally bullish for the cryptocurrency and another long-term rally could follow this next one,” Divine explained during a note to investors on May 4. “Bitcoin halving simply illustrates one reason it's earned most investment. In sharp contrast to fiat currencies just like the U.S. dollar – over $2 trillion has been created by the Fed in 2020 alone – the amount of bitcoin breathing contains a hard cap, and mass dilution events are fundamentally impossible.”
Etoro analyst Simon Peters has noticed that miners don't seem to be selling their freshly minted virgin bitcoins before the halving. “Onchain metrics show that miners as an entire seem to be holding on to their bitcoin at this point rather than selling,” Peters noted on Monday. “The jump within the price of bitcoin implies that miners’ don’t must sell as many bitcoins to hide operational costs. Miners ‘hodling’ could also mean that they're anticipating a continued pitched battle as we approach the block reward halving,” Peters concluded.
