    After the crackdown on the crypto industry in China, the share of the hashrate of bitcoin and other countries has significantly increased. So, in Russia it added 4% - from 7.2% to 11.2%, in Kazakhstan - 7.4% to 18.1%, in Canada - from 4.7% to 9.6%.  

    For the first time, China lost a significant share of bitcoin's computing power back in March 2021, when the figure dropped below 50% of the total.
