From the chart, we can now see that major Bitcoin holders are now accumulating sizable amounts of Bitcoin despite a decrease in the mining difficulty. This week, the Bitcoin mining difficulty drop by a staggering 28% in its biggest single adjustment in history. Global mining hash rate also reduced and the notion, price follows hash rate, held by most miners seems untrue with the latest spike. Bitcoin’s hash rate also hit a new 19-month low of 87.6 TH/s.
Other news causing a rally in the market is the Q2 Report from the Bitcoin Mining Council (BMC). Our source reported that the BMC released its first-ever voluntary survey and estimated that the global Bitcoin mining industry now uses 56% sustainable energy. The environmental concerns of Bitcoin mining became mainstream as a result of Tesla boss, Elon Musk, who shared his concerns about the environmental impact of Bitcoin mining and ultimately stopped the electric car company from receiving payments in Bitcoin.
Because of this, the Bitcoin mining council was created, headed by CEO of MicroStrategy, Michael Saylor, but Elon Musk was excluded from the council. Elon Musk later stated last month that Tesla would resume allowing Bitcoin transactions when the global Bitcoin mining network was verifiably backed by at least 50% green energy.
Now that the report reveals a 56% sustainable energy, the cryptocurrency world is waiting for the electric car dealer to make his move to resume accepting Bitcoin as a means of payment because this is well above his 50% benchmark.
