3. Bitcoin Mining Update

3.1 Bitcoin Price

Bitcoin's price action for April 2024 began on an optimistic note with the opening price on 1 April at $70,525. The market experienced an early surge, achieving its monthly all-time high at $71,102. This figure stands as the highest value for Bitcoin throughout April.

Following this high, the price trajectory shifted downwards. The lowest valuation in April was $62,454, marking a notable decline from the peak. This reduction underscores the significant fluctuations inherent in the market, especially around the Bitcoin halving event—a known catalyst for volatility.

Throughout the month, Bitcoin's price went through various changes, exhibiting a modest downward trend overall. Nevertheless, the month also included periods of relative stability, suggesting resilience amidst volatility.

As of 29 April 2024, the closing price was $64,166.61. Although this is above the month's lowest point, it remains modestly below the opening price, indicating a slight bearish tendency for Bitcoin in April. The end-of-month price, while not reaching the early April highs, still represents a substantial value, reflecting Bitcoin's enduring appeal and market position.

In April 2024, Bitcoin's price trajectory drew strength from key events and market sentiment:

Bitcoin Halving: The April halving event, a programmed cut in Bitcoin rewards, correlates with an anticipated rise in Bitcoin’s value. While it didn't cause an immediate price increase, such events have historically resulted in significant gains, signalling a confident market outlook in the future.

Economic Outlook: Consistent global economic growth and declining inflation laid a solid foundation for Bitcoin. This economic stability bolstered a confident digital assets market.

Market Sentiment: The Crypto Fear and Greed Index remained in the "Greed" zone for April, reflecting a market decidedly bullish on Bitcoin's future. The consistently high readings indicate that investor confidence held steady, even without an immediate price rise post-halving.


Industry News: The continuing effects of the US's endorsement of Bitcoin ETFs maintained Bitcoin's firm price levels throughout April.

The halving event and a favourable economic environment sustained strong market sentiment in April, reinforcing Bitcoin’s established position and the market’s confident perspective on its value.

3.2 Mining analysis

3.2.1 Hashrate

The April 2024 hashrate chart for Bitcoin demonstrates a robust network characterised by decisive computational power shifts. Beginning at approximately 650 EH/s, the network's hashrate peaks sharply above 750 EH/s multiple times during the month, highlighting periods of heightened mining activity. These pronounced spikes reflect miners' rapid response to favourable market conditions, leveraging opportunities for increased profitability.

Subsequent declines from these peaks, the most notable reducing the hashrate close to 500 EH/s, are short-lived and quickly correct themselves, indicating a resilient network that adapts swiftly to changes. Such dynamic shifts highlight the agility of Bitcoin miners who adjust their computational contributions to maintain profitability.

From the perspective of the miners, the data depict a vibrant mining environment where success hinges on the ability to adapt to the market's rhythm. Higher hashrates equate to a more secure and resilient network, affirming the strength and durability of Bitcoin against potential threats.

The hashrate fluctuations throughout April manifest the Bitcoin network's vigorous and adaptive nature. Miners operate in a highly responsive market, and the overall network performance reflects a steadfast commitment to maintaining Bitcoin's robust framework and its trajectory of growth.

In April 2024, Bitcoin mining revenue exhibited a steady trend with a dramatic peak around the time of the Bitcoin halving on 20 April. This peak, where daily revenues soared past $150 million, reflects the market's reaction to the halving, which typically sparks a surge in Bitcoin's value due to reduced block rewards. Despite the brief spike, the revenue quickly stabilised, showcasing the resilience and adaptability of the Bitcoin mining industry to significant market events.
