    • The Bitcoin network has established a new mining difficulty all time high.

Mining difficulty is there to protect the BTC ecosystem against any network attacks like, for example, double-spending. This happens when perpetrators reverse already confirmed transactions over the BTC blockchain.

The greater the mining difficulty, the more computational power is required from miners to confirm transactions over the BTC network. This means that BTC’s very high mining difficulty makes it almost impossible for malicious actors to represent more than 50% of the hash rate.

The BTC network currently demands 220.436 million terahashes/second (TH/s), according to blockchain.com. All of this only confirms the fact that BTC is the most resilient blockchain network.

BTC might also come to the rescue regarding the LUNA/UST chaos currently ensuing in the crypto markets as Do Kwon’s plans for reviving LUNA and UST includes purchasing and redistributing BTC based on requirement.
