The topic of Bitcoin mining has become more and more difficult over time.
The latest report published by Glassnode highlights a sharp increase in the difficulty of Bitcoin mining.
According to the figures, the difficulty level of Bitcoin mining has reached its highest level since June 2021.
Each Bitcoin block requires 930 thousand exhashes to solve with an average block time of 10 minutes.
Since China announced the ban on cryptocurrency mining activities in the region, major mining companies have migrated to other countries including the United States, Canada and Russia.
While mining revenue has jumped significantly in the past 12 weeks, the jump in the difficulty level has caused many problems for Bitcoin miners.
Glassnode noted this by saying:
Bitcoin mining difficulty recovered to 93e22 hash.
This means that each Bitcoin block requires 930 thousand exa hashes to solve with an average block time of 10 minutes.
Mining difficulty increased:
Since June 2021, the mining difficulty has been steadily increasing.
However, bitcoin price levels support the profitability of bitcoin mining activities despite recent challenges.
The price of Bitcoin reached an all-time high of more than $66,000 in October.
In October 2021, the price of Bitcoin rose by about 40%.
Commenting on recent Bitcoin activities on the chain, Glassnode stated:
After an exciting week for bitcoin to hit a new all-time high, the October closing days saw prices plummet, with a weekly low of $58,208 and a high of $63,698.
Despite the market pulling back from highs and briefly dropping prices below $60,000, bitcoin is still up 40% in October, spurred in part by the excitement over the launch of a bitcoin ETF (BITO).
Bitcoin price has risen more than 6% in the past seven days.
With a market capitalization of $1.16 trillion, Bitcoin's dominance over the cryptocurrency market is currently around 43.3%.
