Everyone was screaming about Bitcoin's hash rate drop yesterday. Today it has recovered. As many others mentioned, hash rate data is an estimation and shouldn't be counted on for accuracy in short, fixed periods of time. Onwards for the world's most secure computing network!
I log the estimated network hash rate from my node in 5 minute intervals and don't see anything out of the ordinary. Lowest estimated was ~66 EH/s, but it appears as though we just had a few slow blocks (ex: 596213, 596250, 596267, etc) that snowballed the estimate downward. Read More
there is no real story. We literally can't measure hashrate except by it's secondary effects (headers and poolshares) watch interblock periods, time to create n blocks, and difficulty adjustments. Don't accept a single data source
That would a likely reason if the hashrate indeed dropped. I’m, however, seeing a normal block production over the past 12 hours (not enough for any conclusions) - so the hash drop could have been an outlier (hashrates are just estimates). It takes a few days to be certain. Read More
Hashrate estimation in < a tweet: Can’t tell how many hashes are computed by miners per second, as hashes that don’t result in finding a block aren’t known. All we know is how often a block is found, and we can estimate from there. But this only approaches accuracy over time! Read More
