JPMorgan: Bitcoin Mining Cost Lowered to $18,000, Negative for Price

JPMorgan lowered its bitcoin production cost estimate to $18,000 from $21,000, as the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance has retroactively revised the production cost for Bitcoin miners after a methodology update.

The research institute prepares the Cambridge Bitcoin Electricity Consumption Index (CBECI), which provides a top-down approach for estimating the electricity consumption for the Bitcoin network.

The investment bank incorporates the CBECI into its model for calculating the Bitcoin production cost — which it says acts as the lower boundary of Bitcoin’s price range. Basically, a price floor, since miners will look to sell at or above this level. The lowering production cost hence is negative for Bitcoin price.
