The ones who are patient will win.

A Bear Winter? Not really.

Over the weekend we saw Bitcoin's recent rally above $60,000 collapse, posting a $10,000 drawdown in a span of hours, hitting its floor of around $52,000.

The Bitcoin hash rate has been studied in-depth by speculators and researchers alike as the asset continues to obtain global adoption. It is important to understand the dynamics and economics around Bitcoin in order for financial institutions to make complete due-diligent investments.
