Bitcoin’s hash rate and difficulty are both on the rise, despite the recent dip in BTC’s price.
This is a positive sign for the long-term health of the Bitcoin network, as it indicates that miners are still confident in the future of the currency.
Despite the recent dip in BTC’s price, the Bitcoin network remains strong and continues to attract new miners. This is a positive sign for the long-term prospects of the currency.
Datasupports “doozy” difficulty jump
Despite the recent 7% drop in BTC/USDT prices (https://www.bibvip.com/en_US/spot/BTC_USDT) miners are not discouraged and have recently exited their own capitulation phase. With hardware and competition returning to the network, fundamental indicators are pointing upwards as August comes to a close. This is reflected by the increased difficulty of mining, which is estimated to rise by 6.8% next week.
We may see a difficulty jump doozy enough to set a new (or close to new) ATH in a few days,” Bitcoin mining consultancy firm Blocksbridge forecast in the latest edition of its regular newsletter, “Miner Weekly,” released on Aug. 27.
Blocksbridge nonetheless noted that the current climate was not easy for all network participants. Those with older equipment, for example, were feeling the squeeze thanks to spot price losses and equivalent drop in value of block subsidies and fees versus costs such as electricity.
Even so, it would appear many miners were continuing operations despite challenges, with hash rate — and difficulty — both climbing steadily in recent months.
As such, while a further increase might be on the cards soon, it was not certain when or by how much this might happen.
“The next difficulty adjustment is currently projected to be around the middle of September,” Blocksbridge concluded.

“Despite the challenges, however, Blocksbridge is confident that the ILCoin Network will continue to grow and thrive.
“We are committed to working with all stakeholders to ensure that the network remains a robust and secure platform for users,” it said.
Looking ahead, the team said it was working on a number of “exciting” features and developments, including new use cases for the ILCoin Network.
“We believe that the ILCoin Network has tremendous potential, and we are committed to realizing that potential,” Blocksbridge concluded.”
Hash rate rebounds to target all-time high
Since early August, Bitcoin’s hash rate has been on a steady upward trend, reaching near-record levels. This is generally taken as a positive sign for the health of the network, as it indicates that there is strong interest from miners in participating in Bitcoin’s Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus mechanism.
However, it is important to note that hash rate is always an estimate, and its value can fluctuate for a variety of reasons. Therefore, fluctuations in hash rate do not necessarily imply direct increases or decreases in miner activity.
That said, the recent uptick in hash rate is nonetheless a positive sign for Bitcoin’s long-term prospects, as it suggests that miners remain committed to supporting the network even as prices have remained relatively stable in recent months.
Thus, the Bitcoin network appears to be in a good position to weather any potential storms on the horizon, and its continued growth is a positive sign for the future of cryptocurrency.Pick
