The difficulty of mining Bitcoins is directly related to the hashrate of its network, which has been steadily increasing over the past three weeks. The indicator has reached 113 EH/s, well below the May peak of 180 EH/s.
In spite of the ban on crypto mining in China, PRC pools (AntPool, Poolin, ViaBTC, F2Pool) still occupy the top positions in the total hashrate. This is because major players are moving their equipment to other countries.
