10 Bitcoin #Mining Predictions for 2023

It's been a wild ride for #Bitcoin in the past year, but it looks like things could be settling down for public #miners.

Here are 10 Bitcoin mining predictions for 2023, according to @hashrateindex 👇
1. The bitcoin bear market will come to an end

The future of #Bitcoin mining is heavily influenced by the price of Bitcoin. Arcane Research's 2022 year-end report shows that the current bear market is similar in length to 2014-15 and 2018, with a peak-to-through drawdown of 78%.
2. Bitcoin’s hashrate growth will slow down

Hashrate growth in 2022 was fueled by miners expanding during the 2021 bull market. However, the poor mining economics of 2022 will likely lead to a slowdown in hashrate growth in 2023.
