While the Ethereum community is getting prepared for The Merge and the protocol’s transition to a full proof-of-stake (PoS) system, the network’s hashrate reached an all-time high (ATH) on April 7, 2022. On Thursday, Ethereum’s hashrate reached a high of 1.131 petahash per second (PH/s), jumping 13% in 89 days.
Ethereum’s Hashrate Climbs 13% Higher Since the First Week of January
The Ethereum blockchain is expected to transition into a full proof-of-stake (PoS) network this year via The Merge. It’s unclear how smoothly that transition will go and for now, ethereum (ETH) miners are minting blocks as fast as they can.
The three-month hashrate chart via coinwarz.com shows that Ethereum’s hashrate captured a high of 1.131 petahash per second (PH/s) on April 7, 2022. On January 9, 2022, Ethereum’s network hashrate rose above the 1.032 PH/s zone. This means over two months, after reaching a single petahash, the network has seen a 13% increase in hashpower.
