Bitcoin Frame Sturdy, BTC/USD Prices Wobbly
Bitcoin price aside.
The Bitcoin network is now more robust and resilient to external attacks—should there be one—a few weeks after the crackdown in China. Just when critics predicted the end of Bitcoin, more nodes are sprouting up from across the globe.
Data shows that there are 3k more Bitcoin nodes in the last few days, a 21 percent increase in the previous 365 days. There are 12.85k Bitcoin nodes at the time of writing, deviating from the platform’s average of 10k nodes year-to-date.
Meanwhile, the network’s hash rate is also improving. After plunging to as low as 55 EH/s last month, Bitcoin is now more secure, with 108 EH/s in computing power.
While at it, there is growing traction as far as the Bitcoin Lightning Network (LN) is concerned. At press time, LN’s capacity keeps increasing. There are over 56k channels and an overall capacity of over 1.8k BTC.
