Crypto Report 24/01/2022

January 24, 2022


The Bitcoin network has recorded a new all-time high mining difficulty of 26.643 trillion with an average hash rate of 190.71 exahash per second (EH/s) — signaling strong community support despite an ongoing bear market. The Bitcoin network difficulty is determined by the overall computational power, which co-relates to the difficulty in confirming transactions and mining BTC. As evidenced by the data, the network difficulty saw a downfall between May and July 2021 due to various reasons including a blanket ban on crypto mining from China. Meanwhile Russia’s recent ban on crypto has drawn criticism from several big names, including Alexei Navalny’s chief of staff Leonid Volkov, and Telegram founder Pavel Durov. On Jan. 20, Russia’s Central Bank published a report proposing a blanket ban on domestic crypto trading and mining. The report stated that the risks of crypto are “much higher for emerging markets, including Russia.”
