Bitcoin network hashrate sees fastest growth in history

The Bitcoin network hashrate reached its all-time high this month, reaching 74.5 EH/s on Jul. 5. The hashrate has also recorded its fastest growth in history, Binance Research revealed, increasing by 13.11 EH/s in the past month. Current Bitcoin network hashrate as of July 12, 2018, is 65.78 EH/s.

June and July have been incredible months for Bitcoin, with the coin experiencing its 15-month high. The world’s largest cryptocurrency broke through the $13,000 barrier earlier in June but experienced a 30 percent correction at the beginning of July.

However, since then, Bitcoin has rallied almost 40 percent and broke through the $13,000 barrier for the second time in less than a month by reaching $13,152 on Bitstamp. The price keeps going upwards despite a slight correction to $12,500 and has seen a 1 percent gain in the past 24 hours.

And while Bitcoin’s latest price spike is good news for traders, it’s not the only rally the network has seen. Bitcoin’s total hashrate on a 7-day moving average has increased by 13.11 EH/s in the past 30 days. This is the fastest growth pace the network has seen so far and that it could hugely affect the coin’s price in the near future. Read More at CryptoSlate...
