From the announcement that Bitcoin miner wallet balances have dropped to their lowest level since January 2021, to Binance delisting trading pairs from FTT. Here are some highlights of the crypto market.
The continued market decline caused by the FTX crash has hit Bitcoin miners hard. The market has seen the largest one-day miner selling pressure since January 2021, and according to analytical data, this selling pressure shows no signs of stopping.
We could still see more selling pressure from miners before the average hash price starts to drop. In November 2022, the average hash price reaches $0.05. Bitcoin’s current level of $17,000 makes mining unprofitable for miners.
With tens of thousands of new ASIC miners added to the market in the past year, and even the biggest miners facing huge losses, few would have expected the hash price to rise so quickly. .
The latest Bitmain S19Pro ASIC miner costs around $9,000 per device, has a payback period of 1,500 days and an average hash price of $0.06.
Increased mining costs and reduced profits prompted miners to sell their bitcoin holdings. Miner wallet balances have plummeted since early November to their lowest level since January 2021.

Changes in the net asset position of miners correlate with sharp drops in the price of Bitcoin. With energy prices expected to rise throughout the winter and the ongoing bear market showing no signs of ending, we may see many unprofitable miners shut down their operations.
