The trigger for the abrupt change of course was most likely inconsistencies in the OKEx bitcoin exchange.

Drama at Bitcoin Exchange OKEx

Confusion about OKEx: Like the Bitcoin exchange today announced, withdrawals are currently not possible via the Exchange. The reason is that a private key holder “cooperates with a public security authority”. Since the exchange currently has no contact with the person concerned, no transactions can currently be authorized.

The stock exchange has so far been covered for more detailed information. The customer’s deposits are safe, the exchange assures in the letter:

In derivatives trading, the trading volume on the exchange is loud Coingecko ahead of Binance in first place. However, the recent squabbles could redistribute the market shares.

Hash rate at all time high

ASICs are in full swing in 2020. Since the post-halving slump in May, the Bitcoin Hash Rate from one to the next all-time high. On October 14th, the time had finally come again: With over 144 terahash per second, the total computing power in the Bitcoin network set a new record.

Bitcoin Hash Rate

The network is therefore more secure than ever. The breeding ground for the continuous increase in hash rate is the Bitcoin price development. The mining profitability increases with the BTC rate. Since the same applies in the opposite direction, the kink is explained in the course of halving the block rewards through the Bitcoin halving.

Despite the price correction above the $ 11,000 mark, the profit margin in Bitcoin mining remains modest. Loud F2Pool Bitcoin miners earn an average of $ 4.68 a day with an Antminer S19 Pro, currently the most powerful mining hardware. Ether miners, on the other hand, get $ 13.94 with a GTX TitanV 8 cards. This also explains why the crypto-badgers the Miners Rolling Inventory von Bytetree are currently selling more Bitcoin than they are mining.

Bitcoin under value?

According to the current Stack Funds Market Report Bitcoin is still trading below its value. Stack Funds relies on the MVRV (market value to realized value) ratio in reaching this conclusion. The MVRV ratio is a key figure that relates the market value to the realized value. Accordingly, the trend shows “a similar course to that of the 2017 bull run, with a steady growth tendency that has tested an identical support trend line several times”.

MVRV (Bitcoin)

In view of the support (blue line), “a significant break of 2.0” is to be expected in the near future. As a result, the top value from 2019 of 2.5 should be tested again, “which will bring the Bitcoin price above the 15,000 US dollar mark”.

The upward trend is consequently due not least to the increasing demand on the part of large companies and institutional investors who are flushing fresh capital into the crypto market.
