Bitmain loses its mining pool dominance but the BTC mining pools controlled, are even now among the top four miners, nevertheless, they have yielded their leadership to F2Pool and Poolin. Antopool and BTC.com have spent a bit of their old glory, considerably decreasing the share of Bitcoin block rewards on a daily basis so let’s find out more about it in the blockchain news today.
In the past quarter, while the whole hash rate for Bitcoin’s network kept establishing a sequence of mining records, Bitmain’s pools lagged behind. The lag of the two pools is occurring as bitcoin is trading at prices way over breakeven points for most Chinese miners. As the precise composition and hashing power of the BTC mining pools is stated by other methods, it is hard to conclude what happened to the two leading miners.
A pool is not simply dedicated to a single bitcoin mining operator so anyone can join it. The mining farms can also switch affiliation. A large pool means there is a higher chance of winning the even scarcer block rewards and receiving a fraction of BTC for the mining. Antpool has even seen a slowdown in pace but a steady decline in Bitcoin block discovery over the years. However, the pool has discovered more than 45,000 blocks in the past.
BTC.com is in better shape and has a share of more than 14.3 percent of blocks discovered. The bitcoin mining pool takes the second position in daily block discovery and there is a slight chance to solving the headers. The major decline in BTC mining power was related to Bitmain’s leadership drama. The CEO Jihan Wu returned to the company and ousted Zhan Ketuan from the organization and warned to block him from accessing the headquarters of the company.
Bitmain loses its dominance after the failure of the IPO. Despite the market recovery, the sales remained low and the Bitcoin mining rigs from Innosilicon and Canaan Mining continued to take over the market share. The company is still expanding the operations and they even opened a facility in Texas. It remains to be seen what the effect of the mining farm will be since Bitmain has announced shipments of the Antminer s17 at the start of October.
