Hashrate is the processing power of the equipment that mines the cryptocurrency and is measured in hash per second (H/s). With the intense heat and power grid overloads, mining companies from some countries were forced to stop mining cryptocurrency, which led to a noticeable drop in global hashrates.

Large cryptocurrency companies in the state of Texas, the U.S. mining center, stopped their work, as previously reported by Bloomberg. This happened due to a sharp increase in the cost of electricity on the background of forty-degree heat and windless weather. Also in June, Iran banned the mining of cryptocurrency.
