In related news, North American miners who previously ordered mining equipment are finally receiving their machines in monthly shipments. This may have also contributed to the increasing hash rates.

Dave Perrill, CEO of US mining farm operator Compute North, opined that although there was an initial agitation from Chinese miners searching for hosting capacities, he believes “most miners are now understanding some of the constraints about getting [machines] online and the associated timeline with them.”
