OKEx bitcoin mining pool has lost almost all the hash rate after withdrawal suspension


OKEx has lost almost all the hash rate that was connected to its crypto mining pools following the exchange's suspension of withdrawals.

Data from BTC.com shows that the computing power from miners that connected to OKEx's bitcoin mining pool produced about 5% of the total blocks mined on the bitcoin network over the past three months. On average, they were mining about 10 blocks per day.

Since October 16 when the exchange announced the suspension of crypto withdrawals, the computing power connected to OKEx's bitcoin mining pool has dwindled, from close to 9,000 petahashes per second (PH/s) to right now just 20 PH/s. 

Since October 17, OKEx's bitcoin mining pool has mined only 12 blocks and the latest one was produced on November 2. 

Data from OKEx's mobile and web apps show a similar trend for the computing power connected to its ethereum mining pool, which has decreased from over 30,000 MH/s before withdrawal suspension to now only 730 MH/s.
