Bitcoin Mining Difficulty Increases Drastically 

The mining difficulty experienced by Bitcoin evaluates the amount of hashes that are needed in order to mine a block.

After the third segmentation, the difficulty became more enlarged until March 29, 2021. Eventually, these figures deteriorated sharply.

Nonetheless, it has been experiencing an increase at an even faster rate ever since July 2021. It advanced to a new all-time high this month.

Putting into consideration that the hash rate is just below an all-time high, it is optimistic that a downward difficulty adjustment will emerge in the weeks to follow.

A way to measure the ratio between miner revenue and transaction fees is through the Free Ratio Multiple (FRM). It shows how secure the blockchain is and how the blockchain rewards were to come to an end.

A case of low FRM reveals that the security can be maintained without block reward subsidies; on the other hand, it is true for high readings.

During bull markets, FRM is low, flying below 20 (black line). Nonetheless, the indicator fastens during corrections, reaching an estimated value of above 100.

An engaging model comes from the amount of time in which the FRM remains high before a Bitcoin bull run starts.

In the year 2018, it remained at above 60 for 11 months; in 2019, it stayed above 60 for nine months.

FRM has been estimated at above 60 since August 2021, which means it has maintained this rate for the past 9 months.
