In terms of transaction fees, the average cost for sending Bitcoin yesterday ended up being approximately $1.14 US dollars. The size of the typical transaction on Bitcoin’s blockchain is up 7.67% in US dollars; meanwhile, the fee for sending transactions has been decreasing by 28.13% per week. Regarding Bitcoin’s hash rate, which serves as a measure of the network’s computational power, it has managed to bounce around over the past 30 days. It has been growing daily by rate of approximately 0.31%. Ultimately, the security of Bitcoin is being a point to bear in mind, because the hash rate trend is unclear — which implies mining is now harder to understand. From this perspective, this behavior may not provide Bitcoin with the ability to draw more capital to its chain.
