Bitcoin Hash Rate Near Full Recovery from China Ban, Close to New All-Time High


  • The Bitcoin network hash rate is near complete recovery from China’s ban of mining.
  • The metric has increased over 80% in the past five months and is close to a new all-time high.
  • Bitcoin has demonstrated deep resiliency and antifragility in the face of a severe stress test and is about to overcome that completely.

The Bitcoin hash rate has showcased deep resiliency since the Chinese bitcoin mining ban, having climbed over 80% in five months to get close to its previous highs.

When the country with the largest share of Bitcoin hash rate at the time began enforcing nationwide efforts to crack down on the industry, a considerable amount of miners were forced offline. As a result, the Bitcoin network total hash rate plummeted to 84.79 exahashes per second (EH/s) in early July, per Coin Metrics data. The metric has since recovered almost completely, and at the time of writing, sits at 156.6 EH/s  less than 16% away from a new all-time high. It has retracted from a local top made at 167.18 EH/s on November 17.
