Bitcoin (BTC) Seems Indestructible: Despite Ban in China, Network Is Stronger Than Ever

It has now been 150 days since China took the drastic step to bitcoin (BTC) completely outlaw mining in a very short period of time. This had major consequences for the network, as a vast majority of all bitcoin miners were located in China. The network has since been restored and seems stronger than ever.

Good development for bitcoin

The recovery that quickly set in was so impressive that some investors even wittily thank China for its recent ban on mining bitcoin and trading cryptocurrencies.

Initially, the hash rate, or the total computing power of the network, by about 50%. The Bitcoin network turned out to be well able to absorb this by, among other things, the difficulty scale down. Meanwhile, the hash rate of the network has again almost the previous one all time highs reaches and the recovery seems almost complete.

Only a few months after the heavy blow, the negative effects of the Chinese ban are almost invisible. In fact, the price of bitcoin is even approaching the long-awaited price point of about $64,000.

According to Chinese crypto analyst Willy Woo, recent developments in China have removed a major obstacle to the progress of the Bitcoin network. Because China is no longer the location of a large part of the computing power of the network, this benefits the decentralization of the network.

A weakness that previously caused a lot of headaches for many investors and analysts has defused itself.
