On Sunday, the hashrate of the Bitcoin network saw a 49% drop after hitting its all-time high (ATH). The data shows that on April 15 the BTC hashrate increased to 218 exahashes per second (EH / s).

Primitive Crypto founder Dovey Wan also spoke about the crashes the next day.

Wan is counting on things to return to normal within a week.

Co-founder of the blockchain data aggregator, Nick Carter also tweeted about the situation in China and the declining hashrate, saying that Xinjiang's falling net and its impact on BTC hashrate are what economists call a "natural experiment."

Trading Recommendations:

The bulls are still in control of the Bitcoin market, so the up trend continues and the next long term target for Bitcoin is seen at the level of $70,000.
