The rise of hashrate

2022-01-14 区块链达人

The previously used CryptoNight algorithm and RandomX are not really comparable due to the fundamentally different algorithms and the resulting efficiencies. However, as the following graph on the hashrate of bitinfocharts shows, it can at least be concluded that since the steep rise to 664 MH/s, one day after the hard fork (on December 01), there has been steady growth.

Within one month with Random X, the hashrate increased from 664 MH/s to temporarily 1.13GH/s.This is because the hashrate of common CPUs increased 8-10 times compared to CryptoNightR, but the network hashrate has increased only 3-4 times (300 MH/s to 1000 MH/s).In the short term, this could continue to have a positive effect on the growth of the hashrate. This in turn will further increase the decentralization and security of the network.
