Has BTC mining recovered from the Chinese ban?
Bitcoin mining has finally recovered from the Chinese crypto ban and crackdown that took more than half the world’s miners offline earlier this year, CNBC reported. China has been the center of this industry for a long period of time. The recovery which is measured by calculating the hashrate, suggests that around 65% to 75% of the world’s bitcoin mining used happened there in China. In May, when Beijing effectively banned crypto mining, more than 50% of bitcoin’s hashrate dropped off the global network impacting the whole market.
As per Blockchain.com, the data shows that the network has completely reversed the losses as the network’s hashrate is up about 113% in the last five months.
