High Difficulty and Minor
Rising hashrate and difficulty also make Bitcoin mining more competitive. The exponential increase in mining difficulty has already pushed many miners out of the market. Those who do not go bankrupt will be forced to sell their assets or close their mining facilities. Core Scientific and Compass Mining are just two of his examples of the many companies struggling with the current situation.
