Bitcoin’s hashrate now requires eighteen zeros to write it down

For the first time in the history of cryptocurrency, the overall hash rate of bitcoin network has exceeded a thousand petahashes per second, thus reaching one quintillion operations, or one exahash, per second. This value might be considered an explicit expression of miners’ position, who apparently continue actively maintaining the network notwithstanding the recent Hearngate and the events around block size limit debate, which some have already dubbed a civil war within the community.

This statement is incorrect:

Most probably, the hash rate spike is caused by launching of a new mining center or commissioning of new mining equipment.

Hash rate spikes are due to the random nature of the mining process. The reported hash rate is an estimate derived by measuring the time between blocks. The time between blocks is random. If that time happens to be less than 10 minutes each for many blocks in a row, then it will appear as an increase in the hash rate, even if there is no change in the actual hash rate.
