Bitcoin Mining Difficulty At Highest Ever


Bitcoin mining difficulty hit an all-time high after increasing by 21.5% today, according to data from Glassnode. It was the largest single-day percentage increase in a difficulty adjustment in almost seven years.

In mid-April, the Bitcoin mining hash rate dropped by roughly 25% after some miners went offline due to blackouts in China. The drop in hash rate caused the self-regulating Bitcoin mining difficulty to decrease in its subsequent difficulty adjustment. That was necessary because, with fewer miners online, less hash rate was being employed on the network, and blocks took much longer than the 10-minute mining interval target, per Glassnode data.

As miners started getting back online in the last couple of weeks, the network’s hash rate increased simultaneously. With increased hash rate and the same difficulty, blocks started getting mined in eight minutes on average last week, well below the 10-minute target.

New Taproot Signaling Period Begins

After the newest Bitcoin Core software release, the difficulty adjustment window of 2,016 blocks (roughly two weeks) also serves as Taproot’s activation signaling epoch. Taproot gets locked in as a protocol upgrade for November if 90% of blocks mined signal readiness during a signaling period between May and August.
