A blockchain’s hashrate indicates the processing power being spent into maintaining network security and completing transactions. It is the rate at which a mining rig or network can complete cryptographic calculations.
LTC Hashrate Up – Healthy Metrics For The Network?
Litecoin thanked Dogecoin for the good news as the networks are mining together in the pursuit to strengthen their security. The increase in LTC’s number of miners is primarily due to the impressive price action registered by LTC that has ramped up to as much as 8% growth as seen in the past week.
On the other hand, even if the hashrate has stepped up, it went the opposite direction for the daily active addresses as it was seen to nosedive in the past couple of days.
