Miners Income

Last month, the total income of miners fell by almost a quarter. This is a consequence of the May decrease in block rewards and lower transaction fees.

In May, miners received $366 million in revenue, in June this figure was $281 million.

The following graph shows that against the backdrop of halving, the size of the mempool has grown significantly. This has led to an increase in transaction fees.

Then, at the turn of May — June, the mempool was released. This led to a significant reduction in transaction fees and, accordingly, a slight decrease in the income of miners.

In June, the share of commissions in the structure of miners’ income amounted to 4.3% ($12 million). In May, this figure was 8.3%. The volumes of transactions in the first and second quarters of this year were approximately the same.
