Bitcoin hash rate has reached today's new highest level in history, according to data from the monitoring of blockchain network resources.
The previous record was beaten in the second half of June when the bitcoin hash rate reached 65.19 TH/s and has grown steadily since then.
Hash rate is the number of calculations that given equipment or network can perform in each second. This is a very important parameter for miners because a higher coefficient will increase their chances of solving a mathematical problem, sealing the block and collecting rewards. A higher network hash rate also increases the number of resources needed to carry out a 51 percent attack, making the network safer.
The period after September 2018 - during the so-called "cryptographic winter" - proved to be a retrograde step for the Bitcoin network. At the time, the network's hash rate decreased for the first time in history.

All the shorter timeframe moves are being treated as a correction inside of the uptrend. The larger ABC correction might have been completed and the market might be ready for another impulsive wave up.
