Bitcoin is the first successful internet money based on peer-to-peer technology; whereby no central bank or authority is involved in the transaction and production of the Bitcoin currency. It was created by an anonymous individual/group under the name, Satoshi Nakamoto. The source code is available publicly as an open source project, anybody can look at it and be part of the developmental process.
Mientras el precio de la principal criptomoneda se desliza, su red se está fortaleciendo. Los niveles de hashrate de Ethereum también alcanzaron nuevas alturas.
The hash rate of the largest blockchain,Bitcoin the biggest and most popular cryptocurrency in the world. It is a decentralized digital currency that enables users to make trustless peer-to-peer transactions.continues to rebound to chase new highs since China imposed one of the biggest cryptocurrency cryptocurrencies are digital currencies that use cryptographic technologies to secure their operation. bans in history.
During this week, thehashrate or hash rate ofBitcoinThe unit of measurement of the processing power of a network. Blockchain a distributed ledger system. A sequence of blocks, or units of digital information, stored consecutively in a public database. The basis for cryptocurrencies. has been climbing back to record levels. According to data fromBlockchain.com the hash rate ofBitcoin has risen to 170terahashes per second (TH/s) after dropping below 100 TH/s just six months ago.
As reported byDiarioBitcoinChina’s crackdown on the cryptocurrency industry and the massive shutdown of mining operations in the region caused a decrease of about 75% in the hash rate of the Bitcoin a mediados de año. En ese momento, los niveles cayeron a 57 TH/s después de haber alcanzado un máximo histórico de 190 TH/s en mayo.
The metrics ofBlockchain.com match that of other data portals on the web. For example, according toYCharts, la hash rate of Bitcoin climbed to 190 TH/s earlier in the week and is currently around 170.9 TH/s. The data fromBTC.com indicate the same numbers.
It should be noted that a rate ofhash a hash is the output result of a hashing algorithm, which creates a unique, fixed-length string to encrypt and secure a certain selection of arbitrary data. higher means more competition among miners to validate new blocks. It also means the network a network refers to all nodes in the operation of a blockchain at any given moment in time. is more secure, as it increases the scale of resources needed to perform a 51% attack by reducing the chances of such an attack.
Bitcoin Hashrate Rises as Price Slides
Although China’s restrictive measures initially wreaked havoc on thehashrate deBitcoinas well as in the price evolution of the asset, these metrics have been progressively recovering in recent months as miners reconnect their equipment overseas.
The ban saw a major exodus of cryptocurrency miners to countries abroad. As a result, China has lost its dominant share in cryptocurrency mining.Bitcoin. After having represented more than 70% of the total of thehashrate network by 2019, the Asian country now has a 0% share in the mining powerhouse ofBitcoinaccording to data from theCambridge University.
The phenomenon has benefited the cryptocurrency sector in the United States, which now accounts for 35% of the global cryptocurrency market.hash deBitcoin. However, it is worth noting that despite these figures, various reports suggest that cryptocurrency mining activities in China have not completely stopped and there are still some underground operations despite the ban.
The reconquest of optimal levels in thehashrate deBitcoin comes amid a major price correction a correction is a pullback of an asset’s price of at least 10% to adjust for over-valuation. in the digital digital technologies are these electronic tools that have the ability to generate, store or even process data. currency currency is a medium of exchange that defines value. market. .Bitcoin( BTC ) has been recording a significant price pullback in recent weeks after conquering a new all-time high near USD $70,000 in early November. At the time of writing, the major cryptocurrency is trading around $50,000.
The price drop appears to be part of a generalized bearish trend within the digital currency market an area or arena, online or offline, in which commercial dealings are conducted. that comes amid concerns over the discovery of a new strain of coronavirus that has been dubbed Omicron. The rise in the hash rate ofBitcoin suggests that miners are seeing mining as a lucrative activity despite falling prices (which in turn imply lower rewards relative to the dollar).
Tasa de hash de Ethereum también se fortalece
On the other hand, the hash rate ofEthereum a decentralized open-source blockchain with smart contracts functionality., la segunda mayor cadena de bloques del mundo, también se ha fortalecido en los últimos meses.
The Chinese ban had led to a plunge in the hash levels ofEthereum in the middle of the year; although not as significant as the fall ofhashrate deBitcoin. As reported byDiarioBitcointhe mining powerhouse ofEthereum there was decreased by 25%. by the end of July.
According to updated data fromEtherscan.iothe hash rate ofEthereum has also been steadily rising to record new highs. Currently, the mining power levels of the network are at 909,842gigahashes per second (GH/s), the highest in the entire history of that blockchain. This network has seen a much more pronounced recovery than that ofBitcoin.
In the meantime,Ethereum seems to be beating Bitcoin in other mining a process where blocks are added to a blockchain, verifying transactions.
