• Bitcoin difficulty per issuance is a proof-of-work (PoW) pricing model based on the mining difficulty and coin issuance.
• The model takes into consideration the hashrate of the network and adjusts the difficulty to keep production levels constant.
• An analyst has pointed out that BTC is almost double the cost of production now, with three levels in the difficulty per issuance model – 1.41, lower bound and upper bound.
What is Bitcoin Difficulty Per Issuance Model?
Bitcoin difficulty per issuance is a proof-of-work (PoW) pricing model used to estimate production costs for miners. This model takes into account two metrics: mining difficulty and coin issuance. The mining difficulty sets the computing power needed for miners to mint new coins and add blocks on the chain; it fluctuates depending on the hashrate of the network (which measures total computing power connected to blockchain). In order to maintain supply production at a constant value, Bitcoin’s network adjusts this difficulty as required. By dividing this difficulty by total number of newly issued coins, we can calculate how much one single BTC costs in terms of production expenses.
Analysis On Bitcoin Price
An analyst recently pointed out that BTC price is now almost double its cost of production according to this PoW pricing model. There are three essential levels within this model: 1.41 which represents an average cost of production; a lower bound; and an upper bound estimation for production expenses associated with one single unit of BTC. Since entering this cycle, BTC has not touched its estimated lower bound yet.

As shown in graph above, Bitcoin was once under Difficulty Per Issuance 1.41 level (the middle line). This level provides us with an approximate cost that miners spend when producing new coins while bottom line gives a lower limit estimation and top line gives higher limit estimation regarding same matter – what it costs to produce one single unit of BTC?
