More than half of Chinese miners expect an influx of new Bitcoin buyers after halving. 71% believe cryptocurrency has regained market confidence. Such data leads the company RockX according to a survey.

Bitcoin Network Processing Power
More than 57% of miners do not expect a significant decrease in hash rate after reducing the block reward. In RockX, on the contrary, it is believed that the processing power of the Bitcoin network will drop to approximately 90 EH/s. On the eve of the hash rate updated its historical maximum above 140 EH/s.
The company is confident that as a result of the halving, Chinese miners will strengthen their positions. The event coincides with the start of the rainy season and access to cheap electricity for them. The COVID-19 pandemic made it difficult for farmers to get new, efficient equipment in North America and Europe, RockX said.
According to Coinmetrics, about 23% of the bitcoin network hash is provided by Antminer S9s. According to Alejandro de la Torre, Vice President of the Poolin pool, devices will become unprofitable after halving, and miners will turn them off.
