On the sixth month time frame below you can see the run up that began on September 5th leading to the current breakout to all-time highs. The sixth month time-frame shows an upward slope in hashrate since the halving in mid-May consolidating with shorter/weaker downswings (capitulations).

Looking at the average block time interval since the last difficulty adjustment, the average block time has dived below the 600 second benchmark, reaching an average block time of 539 seconds, 10% under the ten-minutes target.

Price

After breaking down from yearly highs, bitcoin has consolidated between ten and eleven thousand dollars, and is currently holding at 10K USD.

The increase in network difficulty with a price range bound between ten and eleven thousand dollars, has further compressed mining revenue (a.k.a. the hash price) from $0.08 to $0.07 USD per Terahash per day, which continues to squeeze out older generation miners and higher electricity prices.
