Hashrate Climbs Over 200% Since China’s Bitcoin Mining Crackdown, Mining Difficulty Nears All-Time High

Moreover, on June 28, 2021, China’s crackdown against BTC miners caused the hashrate to plummet to 69.11 EH/s. The network’s hashrate has grown ​​202.98% since that day as a great majority of mining operations relocated to other countries. At the time of writing, the largest bitcoin mining pool is Foundry USA with 19.45% of the global hashpower or 34.79 EH/s. The second-largest mining pool in terms of global hashrate is Antpool with 16.91% of the hashrate or 30.25 EH/s.

There’s only 11 known mining pools mining BTC today and 3.81% of the global hashrate stems from unknown hash or stealth miners. BTC miners have faced two bitcoin mining difficulty increases during the last two epochs. On December 11, the difficulty jumped 8.33% and on the 25th of December, it increased by 0.32%. Bitcoin’s next mining difficulty change will bring it awfully close to the difficulty’s all-time high at 25 trillion. In just over five days, the difficulty is expected to increase by 2.90% to 24.98 trillion.
