MGT Capital Investments Inc. (OTCQB:MGTI) recently issued a letter to shareholders rom H. Robert Holmes, Chairman of the Board and Interim Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Schaeffer, Chief Operating Officer, and Robert Lowrey, Chief Financial Officer: "The past several months have posed tremendous challenges to the Bitcoin mining industry, and to MGT itself. Given this, we would like to address some of those challenges, and share with investors the steps we are taking to assure future successes. Less than a year ago, as MGT was ramping up its expansion plans, Bitcoin was trading at about the same level as today, only to move to what many deemed a bubble at $20,000 in December 2017. But while nearly all external attention focuses on the price of Bitcoin, mining economics have been much more pressured by the Difficulty Rate - a computation used by miners to determine the amount of computing power required to mine bitcoin. The Difficulty Rate is directly influenced by the total size of the entire Bitcoin network. The Bitcoin network has grown six-fold in the past year, resulting in a six-fold increase in difficulty. Today, the network requires the computing power of 80 Bitmain S9 miners to mine one Bitcoin per month, where a year ago it required roughly 12. Meanwhile, demand from miners also drove up hardware and power prices, the largest costs of production.
