BTC block mining time reached a very high rate
Wu Blockchain insider in his Twitter account reported that the bitcoin mining time reached 85 minutes. During this time, it was possible to get only one block. And such a mishap led to delays in some transactions. The data provided by the insider cited explorer.btc.com.
The block time at Bitcoin height 759053 - 054 reached a rare 85 minutes, causing some transaction delays.

It is noted that bitcoin approached a similar mark once. It happened in 2021 because of the ban on BTC mining in the People's Republic of China. At that time, the block extraction time stretched to a hundred minutes.
