December 2020 turned out to be the most successful bitcoin miner in the past few years. They earned $ 692.32 million last month, according to a report from the Block Research team.
Of this amount, about $ 63.3 million are transaction fees. Many BTC holders, amid the rally in the largest cryptocurrency, are willing to pay high fees so that their transactions are processed on a priority basis.
The researchers noted that miners earned the largest revenue in 2020 last month. Moreover, they have not seen such an income even over the past three years. The bitcoin rate in December from $ 19,000 soared to $ 30,000.
This month, the positive trend continued.
