Bitcoin Miners’ Daily Profit Returns to Pre-Halving Levels
In May 2020, the Bitcoin mining reward was split in half after the halving event, which means miners have to make extra efforts to generate the same profits. Following the halving event, the daily mining revenue figure drops to $7.9 million from $19 million.
However, Bitcoin miner’s revenue has been restored to pre-halving levels, according to the data from Glassnode. On November 18, the daily mining profit for Bitcoin miners reached over 1,126 BTC, worth almost $21.2 million.
At the time of reporting, Bitcoin is trading at $19,200, as per CoinMarketCap. If Bitcoin keeps up with its growing trend, miners could observe even higher revenues this month.
