Bitcoin daily mining revenue slumped in May to eleven-month low

As the crypto winter intensifies, bitcoin mining profitability and revenue have continued to fall along with the asset’s price.

As revenue and profitability continue their slide, May was one of the most difficult months for Bitcoin miners over the past year. According to data from Blockchain.com, Bitcoin daily mining revenue dropped by as much as 27% during May according to Ycharts sourcing data.

The analytics provider reported daily revenue for BTC miners of $40.57 million on May 1. However, by the end the month it had dropped to $29.37million. On May 24, daily mining revenue fell to $22.43 million, an 11-month low.

Mining revenue per day soared to an all-time high of $80 million in April 2021, but has fallen to the current level by 62%.

May was the end of this streak for miners. Since August 2021, every month has seen cumulative mining revenue exceeding $1b. Mining revenue last month: $906m

Bitinfocharts reports that mining profitability, which measures daily dollars per Terahash per Second, has fallen to its lowest level since October 2020. According to Bitinfocharts, mining profitability is currently at 0.112 USD per day for 1 THash/s.

The metric has also seen a decrease of 56% since the start of the year, and is down more that 75% from the 2021 highs at 0.450 USD/day/TH/s.

According to Bitinfocharts, the Bitcoin network hash rate remains high at 211.82 EH/s per second. This figure is roughly 16% lower than its May 2nd all-time record of just over 250 EH/s.

Low profitability and high hash rates may indicate that there is more competition in the Bitcoin mining industry than previously thought. Miners have always shut down their rigs in bear markets when the asset price fell and they became temporarily unprofitable.

Glassnode also reported that miners to foreign exchange flows just reached a four-month peak, which suggests they might be considering selling some to offset the declining revenue.
