  Bitcoin Is Intact

  Recently on May 25, the Bitcoin mining difficulty slipped from 4.3317% to 29.897T. The mining difficulty of the crowned cryptocurrency automatically adjusts every two weeks, depending on how much computing power, or hashrate, is securing the network, to keep the time needed to mine a block approximately 10 minutes.

  As the overall crypto market is witnessing bearish moves lately, Bitcoin was not untouched by this either. Its price has also suffered significant losses, resulting in older models of the mining rigs to become unprofitable. Hence, the miners have decided to power them off.

  Bitmains Antminer s9 was giving out losses to miners that pay more than 6 cents per KW of electricity, as per a data by f2pool and luxor.

  Tough Times To Deal With

  Miners which utilize hardware in the similar category as Bitmain s9s, with energy values more than 5 cents are likely to capitulate, Maverick Group and CMG Cryptocurrency Mining Group co-founder Denis Rusinovich statd to a news website.

  Retail miners are the ones impacted by the unprofitability of these ancient mining rigs. They frequently make use of more expensive hosting packages and have escalated capital expenditure to procure hardware, said Rusinovich, Li Qingfei and Veras research head at f2pool.

  Windows are opening to arise as the market gets distressed, said Vera. The Luxor team believes that there are several miners who deployed large future orders, but are no longer able to take them on.
