BTCST aims to bring Bitcoin to DeFi! And seeing its recent growth, it is evident that traders are going all-in on BTCST. But is it going all the way to $1,000 or higher?
The BTCST or the Bitcoin Standard Hashrate Token is the bridge between Bitcoin and DeFi. Further, each BTCST is collateralized with 0.1 Th/s mining power of BTC.

China’s crackdown on crypto lead to a major fall in May, and now the crackdown on Bitcoin mining plants caused the relocation of expensive mining equipment out of China. BTCST solves this problem by providing a way to stake BTCST tokens and earn mining rewards.
Why did it’s price move 5x?
Do you remember the part I told you that each BTCST is collateralized with 0.1 Hash rates on BTC mining? Now, let’s look at some historical data:
Do you remember the May 19 crash that shook the entire crypto market? I hope you do, everyone does. Moving on, that lead to a very steep blow on the BTC ming hash rate, the result of which was, any guesses? The fall in the price of BTCST.

BTCST Price on the 4-H timeframe
Now moving ahead, this was the scenario of the past, and the past can inspire us but won’t make us money. Coming to the present scenarios, the sudden surge in BTC yesterday lead to a surge in the mean hash rate as well, which, is since connected with BTCST, lead to a price surge. However, I believe there were multiple factors affecting this surge and the hash is just one of them.
Has it ever happened that BTCST was independent of Hashrates?
Short answer, Yes. According to a tweet by BTCST from July 24, 2021, the BTC mean hash rate fell significantly, yet the Standard Hashrate group were able to maintain a hashrate of 150 Pentahashes.
Leading to an increase by UPTO 34% to BTCST stakers, which means you get more rewards just by staking.
BTCST Price Prediction
According to our Technical analysts, as of now the BTCST price bounced from the 2nd bottom and showing good bullish strength. Further, it is currently facing resistance and if it breaks we’ll see a good move upward. However, in case the price rejects from the current resistance it will create a pattern of the cup and handle and will bounce from the marked support.
What is the Standard Hashrate Group Planning next?
You might have heard that El Salvador became the first country to accept Bitcoin as a legal tender. And following up on this the Bitcoin Hashrate Group announced on their Twitter that they were cooking something interesting.
And now, since El Salvador is on the move to mine Bitcoin using Volcanic energy it is evident that more miners would be shifting to the country for greener energy resources for Bitcoin mining.
A Brief History of BTCST
