Difficulty History


Explanation


  • Mining difficulty adjusts automatically every block.
  • The graphs belove show the difficulty time series for the last 1008 with a granularity of 4, even thou actual difficulty change for every new block. This as been done to reduce the load on the explorer.
  • The adjustment aims to maintain an average block-mining time of 10 minutes.
  • A growth in the difficulty indicates that the average block-mining time during the previous 144 blocks was less than 10 minutes (due to more miners joining the network and 'searching' / 'mining' for blocks).
  • A drop in difficulty indicates miners have left the network so finding each block is adjusted to be 'easier' for the smaller number remaining.
  • For more details have a look at BCH DAA algorithm
