The bitcoin blockchain network recorded the second largest drop in cryptocurrency mining difficulty.

The reduction in complexity is believed to be a result of a drop in the overall computing load on the network over the past two weeks, as many Chinese mining centers in China have been forced to shut down capacity due to local government orders..

As a reminder, since late August, cryptocurrency miners in the Inner Mongolia region, China, no longer receive preferential electricity prices. Although no official reason for the elimination of subsidized prices has been made public, local Weixin believes the decision is due to a lack of benefits for local authorities..

Moderate drawdown

Along with the fall in the difficulty of Bitcoin mining, another collapse was recorded, but already on the market of decentralized exchanges (DEX).

The largest in terms of trading volume remains the Uniswap cryptocurrency exchange protocol, where daily indicators at the time of writing exceed $ 237 million.
