Bitcoin mining in China roars back even after last year's crypto ban



While China's government downright banned cryptocurrencies last year, the country now has re-emerged as the world's second largest bitcoin (BTC-USD) miner, with the U.S. remaining top dog, according to a report from the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance ("CCAF") released this week. Specifically, the U.S.'s bitcoin (BTC-USD) mining hub accounted for 37.84% of global hashrate (a measure of computing power -- the speed of mining), followed by China (21.11%), Kazakhstan (13.22%), Canada (6.48%) and Russia (4.66%), as per the report, which referenced data from September 2021 to January 2022. Keep in mind the total hashrate is hovering near all-time highs, meaning more bitcoin (BTC-USD) miners are getting involved with validating transactions on the Proof-of-Work blockchain, which ultimately improves the network's security.
