High hash rate is a positive indicator, as it means that the network cryptocurrencies are more resistant to attacks. It also shows that private miners and large companies strongly believe in the future of BTC.

Last month, analysts also noted that despite the heavy correction of the prices of BTC since December of 2017, when the market was set to the maximum value of the coin, the interest of miners to the oldest cryptocurrency continues to grow. In the period from may to September, its network hash rate has doubled: 28 EH/s recorded in may vs September 57 EH/s. However, the latest figures are below the record 62 EH/s, achieved in August when the index of dominance of bitcoin again exceeded 50%.
