This figure is 21% below February’s level, but just 0,12% below the same month last year. Spending on parts other than graphics cards also fell by 14%.

What happened before? According to a report by cryptocurrency exchange Binance, bitcoin surpassed Ethereum in June in terms of mining revenues for the first time in 2022. Profits from BTC mining totaled $656,47 million, while the profit from ETH was $548,58 million. Analysts noted that the yield from mining was directly proportional to the rate of the cryptocurrency. This means that it declined significantly in the face of the market downturn.
