US emerges as largest Bitcoin miner after China crypto crackdown

Now, Beijing’s intense efforts to curb the cryptocurrency market, announced in May, are paying off. China’s observed participation in Bitcoin mining has reached zero, the Cambridge researchers found. That’s down from 75% in September 2019, when Cambridge started collecting data. It’s also a sharp decline from the 46% level recorded in April this year alone.

The U.S. has turned into the world’s epicenter for Bitcoin mining after a crackdown in China successfully eliminated the training in the previous support of the industry. Toward the finish of August, America represented 35.4% of the worldwide hash rate, a proportion of processing power used to extricate the digital currency, as per a Cambridge Center for Alternative Finance study published on Wednesday. That is over two times the action seen in April. The flood in the country’s overall offer has been driven by China’s transition to trim down the business to control financial risk. In the beginning of Bitcoin’s 2009 initiation, the Asian country was the base for the greatest diggers tapping into cheap electricity from coal and hydro plants.

There is a strong possibility that covered mining is still happening in China, but routed through virtual private networks that make it look like computers are operating in another country. Recent hash rate increases in Ireland and Germany are likely the result of miners using VPNs or proxy servers, according to Cambridge research.

Miners are looking for cheap electricity and are welcoming governments to fuel the virtual currency boom that is once again nearing all-time highs. The token has risen more than 370% in the last year to trade around $ 54,650 with a total market value of approximately $ 1 trillion.

In Kazakhstan, the share of the hash rate reached 18.1% in August, up from 8.2% in April, while the Russian share grew to 11%, from 6.8% during the same period.

Researchers at the institute, which is part of the Cambridge Judge Business School at the University of Cambridge, collect data on the IP addresses of mining operators from mining pools BTC.com, Poolin, ViaBTC and Foundry.
