The difficulty of mining with Bitcoin has decreased

Bitcoin miners can rest as the difficulty of extracting a block has dropped by 6%.

The difficulty of production of Bitcoin dropped by 6%, which means it is easier to generate a block.

This is the third negative change in difficulty this year. Smaller diggers should feel some relief.

According to Satoshi’s design, Bitcoin is designed to automatically adjust the difficulty of extracting a block for each 2016 block. 

After the block prize dropped to 6.25 BTC, many miners were forced to give up, as a result of which the hash rate dropped by 40%.

As a result, far fewer blocks were produced, with only 95 blocks produced on 17 May. 

More blocks should now be extracted once the difficulty has subsided.
