Here is the link to the full article but I wanted to post a few highlights concerning the 2019 XMR Fork. To me there is A LOT of great information here with the last paragraph giving you a pulse of their miners and market.
On March 9, Monero completed a routine hardfork with the primary aim to improve the protocol to be more ASIC-resistant. n April 2018, Monero performed its first anti-ASIC hardfork to stop the coin from being mined.
However, the fork’s effect proved to be short-lived.
In February 2019 ASIC-miners were responsible for 85 percent of all Monero coins mined, according to the nonce analysis performed by a researcher known as MoneroCrusher.
After That publication (see link “85 percent” above), Monero’s lead developer Riccardo Spagni promised to fork the network once every 90 days to resist ASICs domination.–(I went looking for any article or posting about this and I was not able to locate one(at this time))
According to the 2miners portal, the Monero network lost over 90 percent of its hash rate shortly after the hardfork. The parameters dropped to 96 Mh/s by Monday morning against 1.32 Gh/s registered on Saturday. However, other researchers provide different figures. Coinwarz service believes that the hash rate only dropped by 30 percent, while Bitinfocharts claims a 75 percent loss.
Apart from that, Monero developers mentioned that it might take more time to discover new blocks, but the situation should stabilize within the next 24-48 hours. Usually, it takes about two minutes to discover a new block on the Monero network, however, it is exceeding the five-minute mark.
Meanwhile, the XMR/USD reaction was rather muted as the coin continued consolidation with a downward moving bias. At the time of writing, XMR/USD is changing hands at $48.34. The price is moving within the rage of the previous days, mostly in sync with the broader market
