The hashrates of the two largest cryptocurrencies are recovering as Chinese miners move their operations to other parts of the world.
BTC And ETH Hashrates Are Rising Again The hashing powers securing the Bitcoin and Ethereum networks are rising again. This comes as Chinese miners begin moving their operations to other parts of the world. The hashing power of Bitcoin and Ethereum suffered a major blow in recent months as the Chinese authorities cracked down on cryptocurrency mining activities.
The governments of the Sichuan and Anhui province s in China recently banned cryptocurrency mining activities in the regions. This led to the closure of several Bitcoin mining farms, and smaller crypto miners went out of business.
Due to the bans, some of the miners are moving to other favorable destinations, such as Kazakhstan, Russia and the United States. According to recent data, the seven-day moving average of BTC’s hashrate has gradually climbed up above the 100 exahashes per second (EH/s) level. The hashrate has remained above this level for the past three weeks.

Ethereum’s hashrate plunged by 20% following the crackdown in China. However, it is also recovering and has stayed above 500 terahashes per second for the past few weeks.
Bitcoin And Ether Rally In Recent Days The cryptocurrency market has slightly recovered from a slump that affected its price over the past two months. Bitcoin finally surpassed the $35k resistance level and rallied past $40k before retreating to the $39k region earlier today.
