Difficulty History


Explanation


  • Mining difficulty adjusts automatically every 5,040 blocks.
  • The adjustment aims to maintain an average block-mining time of 1 minutes.
  • A growth in the difficulty indicates that the average block-mining time during the previous adjustment epoch was less than 1 minutes (due to more miners joining the network and searching 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.
