3. Bitcoin Mining Update

3.1 Bitcoin Price

Bitcoin opened in March 2024 at $62,440.63 and experienced early volatility, with a dip to $61,198.38. A subsequent recovery saw prices surpass the month's opening value before a drop on March 5th to $63,801.20. Mid-month, Bitcoin rallied to a historic peak of $73,738.00, but this high was short-lived, and by March 20th, it had receded to $67,320.84. The latter part of March continued to be turbulent, with a decline to $61,930.35 on the same day.  However, resilience was evident as the price rebounded, trading above $70,000 by March 27th. As of the last update on March 28th, the price remained above the $70,000 mark, despite fluctuations.  As we approach the Bitcoin halving event, expected on 19th April 2024, the month's end showed a bullish trend, with prices closing higher than the start. Which reflects investor optimism and confidence in Bitcoin's growth. 

Bitcoin Price Chart for March

Several key developments have driven Bitcoin's price dynamics in March 2024. A liquidation surge and increased open interest in the futures market indicate that leverage has significantly influenced price movements. The London Stock Exchange's announcement of listing Bitcoin and Ether ETNs, along with Nilam Resources' planned purchase of Bitcoin, has sparked market optimism. Institutional interest has also been evident, with a positive Coinbase Premium Gap and net inflows into Bitcoin ETFs highlighting strong demand.

A technical breakout from a key resistance level has further boosted trader confidence, propelling prices upwards. However, a flash crash on BitMEX, which saw a substantial sell order briefly plummet Bitcoin to $8,900 although other major exchanges maintained prices above $60,000 triggered a recent dip in Bitcoin's price.

In March 2024, the Bitcoin network's hashrate showed significant fluctuations, ranging from approximately 500 EH/s to 800 EH/s. Nevertheless, the hashrate concluded the month positively, nearing the 800 EH/s mark. This increase points to a promising outlook for Bitcoin mining, marked by greater miner participation or improved efficiency. The trend, consistent with the previous month's performance, signals a robust and secure mining ecosystem.
