Bitcoin price saw a strong improvement over the past week, almost doubling from the low values it set during extreme, panic-induced selloff earlier this month.
And as the price improved, Bitcoin miners began to return to the market, turning down the towers, as can be seen with an increase in the rate of karma.
Recovers Hash Rate After Deadly Panic Source Selloff
Bitcoin is a unique financial asset as it represents an entire decentralized blockchain network.
It is this network that gives much of Bitcoin's value and is called: proof of work. Miners solve complex mathematical equations to prove that the work is complete, unlocking the BTC award for their efforts and preproduction costs.

Miners are aiming to produce BTC at a price much higher than the cost of production and to profit from them.
However, when the Bitcoin price drops to extremely low levels, miners often surrender by shutting down their operations or shutting down their machines until Bitcoin price returns.
During the last panic-induced selloff in the heels of the coronavirus pandemic, the first cryptocurrency was $ 10,000 to $ 4,000 in a few weeks. fell below.
The drop caused many miners to shut down their machines, as demonstrated by a serious and sharp drop in the hash rate of the cryptocurrency network.

However, this mixed rate started to return as the Bitcoin price provided a strong enough recovery to some of the larger mining operations to start returning their preliminary investments in energy costs.
Bitcoin Price Continues to Trade Under Production Cost Despite Rebound
When it comes to bitcoin mining, the most convenient is survival, and only miners with the cheapest energy costs and most efficient operations can endure when the bitcoin price is so low.

Although the mixed rate shows signs of improvement, the price of Bitcoin is still below the cost of production for smaller mining operations, which is a better loss than continuing to use more expensive, energy-consuming towers than buying cryptocurrency directly on a stock exchange.
Improvement in the rate of karma is a positive sign. The fear was that while the smaller miners were leaving the market, the hash power behind Bitcoin's blockchain became more central with the biggest miners controlling the lion's share in the network, and essentially destroying the asset as a decentralized network.
Any entity that takes a large part of the hash power of the network can have devastating effects if an anti-protocol effect is used.
