Bitcoin Miners Hit Jackpot as Hash Rate Peaks Again

Data from on-chain analytics provider Glassnode has reported that Bitcoin’s average hash rate hit a new all-time high this week, crossing a daily average of 178 exahashes per second for the first time in history.
Bitinfocharts confirms the record high, reporting current hashrates at 176 EH/s. It topped 150 EH/s twice in February and has remained at these high levels for the past two months, steadily increasing.
Hashrate is often considered as computing ‘horsepower’ for the Bitcoin network and a strong sign of its security. The higher the hashrate, the harder it is to attack the network.
The bullish on-chain metrics were observed by data scientist Rafael Schultze-Kraft [@n3ocortex] who added that mining difficulty has also hit a new all-time high.

Mining Never More Profitable
The analyst noted that Bitcoin miners have been making more than $50 million per day for the past month. He put this into perspective by pointing out that a year ago, this number was around $12 million – so current earnings are a fourfold increase despite the block subsidy being cut in half in May 2020’s halving.
Miners are also now holding on to the new coins they’re minting as the net position has flipped back to green according to Glassnode. In the run-up to the $40K price level, miners were aggressively selling off to cover their costs but they’ve now switched back into accumulation mode.
“In fact, the Bitcoin unspent supply (BTC that has never left the original mining addresses), has started to increase again after a quick and sharp drop of around 15k BTC at the beginning of the year. More hodling than spending.”
He added that direct BTC transfers from miner to exchange wallets have been going back down significantly and even USD-dominated miner to exchange volume has decreased despite a stable price. Though miner activity represents a very small fraction of BTC trading volumes as a whole.
The analyst concluded that these metrics are very bullish and miners have little incentive to cash out now or capitulate as many predicted after the halving.
Bitcoin Price Update
At the time of press, Bitcoin was trading down 1% on the day at $56,700 according to Coingecko. It is down on the same time last week by 3.4% but remains within the month-long range bound channel it has formed.
Bitcoin has not dropped below $50K for over a month which is also a bullish sign that support is holding strong.
