Ethereum miners' revenue touched almost a two-year high in July

Ethereum miners generated $143.8 million in revenue in July, representing a 23-month high, according to The Block Research.

Transaction fees made a chunk, nearly 23%, of Ethereum miners' revenue during the month, as noted by The Block's Larry Cermak in his latest report. In May, transaction fees accounted for only 10% of Ethereum miners' revenue.

Bitcoin miners, on the other hand, generated $299 million in total revenue in July — that is almost twice of Ethereum miners' revenue. Bitcoin transaction fees saw a slight increase to 8% in July as compared to over 4% in June.

Last month, bitcoin miners' revenue touched a 15-month low due to halving that took place in May. The bitcoin halving cut the per-block subsidy from 12.5 BTC to 6.25 BTC.
