On-chain Data reveals the Capitulation of Bitcoin Miners Has Begun

Massive selling pressure has been observed for Bitcoin (BTC) and the larger crypto market in the wake of the collapse of cryptocurrency exchange FTX. As this month turns out to be the worst November for Bitcoin so far, the price of the cryptocurrency has fallen by more than 21%.

In this severe market drop, bitcoin miners have suffered the most. According to on-chain data, the Bitcoin miner capitulation has formally started, indicating that the price of BTC will continue to suffer. When the price of bitcoin falls, some miners may capitulate because it becomes harder for them to keep the currency profitably. They are consequently compelled to sell and leave the network.

The Bitcoin hash rate, on the other hand, has started to fluctuate. The BTC hashrate is 13.7% behind its all-time high on a 7-day moving average. In a week, there will be a -9% adjustment to the Bitcoin mining difficulty. This is unmistakably a symptom of an early stage of capitulation among Bitcoin miners.
