Bitcoin (BTC) hashrate and what it means

Mining hashrate is a key security metric for the Bitcoin (BTC) network. The hashrate displays the network’s computing (hashing) power calculated by all mining equipment present within the blockchain. The greater this number is, the more secure and attack-resistant the network becomes.

Bitcoin’s hashrate showed the biggest growth since May 2021, reaching 35,6 trillion hashes (+13,55%). The average mining hashrate was bouncing at 250 EH/s.

BTC miners remain unconcerned despite the ongoing bear market. The news comes not long after it was announced that the blockchain’s trading volume surged to $42.68 billion for the first time since mid-June.

The data suggests that investor activity on BTC is growing despite many significant trading volume corrections throughout the year.
