Despite the fall in the BTC rate below $24,000, the network’s capacity is increasing, and many analysts view this trend positively.

The higher the hashrate, the more secure the network, as more miners connect to it and compete to mine blocks.

Evidence of the strengthening of the BTC ecosystem was the expansion of the Lightning network, the throughput of which increased to 4000 BTC.
