Why does ^BCRYPTMD5$ take so long? - Mikerowe - 02-18-2019

I've been experimenting on some Edmodo hashes and using MDXfind, i've found that i have a rate of roughly 20-60 hashes per second. Is this an expected speed due to the nature of the Bcrypt hashing algorithm, or should it be faster than this? 
using an 8 cores on an fx8320 if that helps

This is an expected speed. Bcrypt is a very hard hashing algorithm to crack, in case of bcrypt it also depends on the cost factor which sets the amount of rounds (2^factor) during the hashing process.
