The current hash rate of Bitcoin blocks is at 201.84 exahash per (EH/S) second as per the data provided by Blockchain.com.

    After maintaining a stronghold all year round, the network difficulty broke the record on February 13, outreaching an all-time high of 248.11 EH/s. With higher hash rates, resilience against double-spending attacks is confirmed. There has been a slight up-down in the BTC network during the previous year.

But the network again started to grow back consistently in July 2021.
