12Ships Monthly Report-October 2020
[ Press Time: Nov 4th, 2020 ]
On October 21, the Bitcoin price broke out and rose up by about $1,000 that day. Now, it has broken through 13,000 US dollars and hit a new high in 2020. In the past week (October 26–30), Bitcoin fluctuated roughly in the range of $12,700 to $13,900. As the risk aversion becomes intense where the U.S. stocks market continues to fall, BTC and gold have both shown unusual risk resistance capabilities. The mainstream crypto market’s optimism is further fermented by the continuous increase in prices.

1)The 6th Blockchain Global Summit 2020 was grandly opened in Shanghai last week. The topics of this summit covered the blockchain industry, digital economy, public chain development(including Ethereum, Polkadot, and Filecoin), distributed finance, industrial Internet, DeFi, and other hot spots.
Juan Benet, the founder of Filecoin, delivered a keynote speech at the summit. He said that the demand for data storage will increase three times in the future. Filecoin mining is booming. Compared with traditional distributed storage networks, Filecoin is more widely distributed. Currently, more than 90 organizations participate in the development of Filecoin, and it also benefits from the IPFS ecosystem.
According to filfox.info on Oct 31, the whole Filecoin network's effective computing power is 708.25 PiB. The number of active miners is 631. The output in 24H is 156,945 FIL, and the pledge amount is 14,209,679 FIL.
2) Due to the end of the rainy season in Southwest China in October, and the electricity fees officially entered into the normal season level. The hydropower mine farms have begun to migrate to thermal or wind power areas in the northern region, and the decline in hash rate is a short-term phenomenon. As of Nov 2nd, the latest 7 days average Hashrate of the whole Bitcoin network has dropped to 107.49EH/s. Affected by this, the difficulty of the network is estimated to decrease next time.
