The Bitcoin network has been operational for 5,012 days and so far, more than 755,000 blocks have been mined. Over the past year, Foundry USA and Antpool were the top two miners. The combined groups collectively mined 18,229 blocks from the 53,510 blocks mined this year. Foundry is the leader this year. All-time statistics show that the pool is the 15th largest and has only found 1.55% of the more than 755,000 blocks discovered.
Unknown hashrate discovered most Bitcoin blocks over the past 13 years
Over the past three days, 11 different known mining pools have dedicated hashrate to the Bitcoin (BTC) network. In addition, during the past 12 months, 27 different known mining pools mined BTC. And all-time statistics state that approximately 98 groups have mined BTC over the past 13 years.
This year, Foundry USA is and has been the leader hashrate, and of 53,510 BTC blocks, Foundry discovered a total of 10,044 blocks. Antpool managed to gather 8,185 BTC blocks, and the two main groups were followed by F2pool, Binance Pool, Viabtc, Poolin, and Btc.com, respectively.
The unknown hashrate, also known as poachers, only captured 1.78% of the blocks found over the past year. The unknown hashrate managed to gather 954 blocks in 12 months, as known mining pools have become a prominent force in the Bitcoin world.
However, that hasn’t always been the case, and stealth miners, including Satoshi Nakamoto, are still the ultimate winners of most BTC blocks found in history. The data shows that of the 755,432 blocks mined over the past 13 years, an unknown hashrate has captured 29.90% of the global hashrate.
While the unknown hashrate is less noticeable these days, stealth miners have managed to find 225,864 blocks since the network began. While F2pool was the third largest pool last year, the pool is the second largest pool of all time.
F2pool has managed to control 9.73% of the global hashrate for more than a decade and has found 73,477 BTC blocks. Antpool has the third largest pool position of all time with 65,999 blocks found to date.
Btc.com captured 39,022 blocks and Braiins Pool (known as Slush Pool) found 38,376 blocks to date. The now-defunct BTC Guild remains the sixth largest mining pool. This blocks found over the past 13 years.
Today’s top miner, Foundry USA ranks 15th all-time statistics and has only found 1.55% of the blocks mined to date. 12 different pools have found fewer than 50 blocks and four mining pools have found fewer than 30.
Bitcoin mining pool 175btc has found the fewest blocks (22). It is according to bitcoin mining distribution statistics of all time. After 13 years, in September 2022, Bitcoin’s global hashrate and mining difficulty reached all-time highs.
