What is the Target in Bitcoin? Bitcoin Mining Explained

An alternative crypto currency for the cannabis industry.

Cannacoin is an internet based digital currency for the cannabis industry: a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Unlike traditional currencies such as dollars, Cannacoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Cannacoin. As such, it is more resistant to wild inflation and corrupt practices. With Cannacoin, you are your own bank.

Why Bitcoin Unlimited will win this hardfork. And what Core's 2 options are.

Bitcoin's difficulty retarget time is 2016 blocks. With normal hashrate, these 2016 blocks are mined on average every 2 weeks.
Let's assume that Bitcoin Unlimited miners decide to mine the first greater-than-1-MB-block with 75% hashrate on their side. This would mean the smaller Core chain would have 25% hashrate at the time of the fork. This also means that the normal 2 week difficulty retarget period will now take 4 times as long for the Core chain (8 weeks) to mine all 2016 blocks until the new difficulty retarget.
This means that once the fork occurs, the lesser hashrate Core chain will immediately be non-viable during the 2016 block difficulty retarget period.
The Core chain will have extremely slow confirmation times (like a block getting solved every 40 minutes and exponentially worse fees than they already are experiencing, due to 4x fewer blocks being mined). I personally think this will be the final nail in the coffin of that chain.
There are 2 approaches to this problem for Core:
If they do make it this far (either by OPTION 1 or OPTION 2 above), there is another interesting ramification which would take place:
Since the difficulty on the Core chain will be reasonable again (again, after OPTION 1 or OPTION 2 above), the Core hashrate that remained would more than likely be on board with Segwit. So the Core chain would at last have basically 100% Segwit support. Segwit would then finally activate on the Core chain.

Warning: Blockchain difficulty adjustment affecting price movements

Below are notable difficulty adjustments when hash rate fell and block times become slower for Bitcoin.
  1. 26 Mar 2020 [difficulty adjustment -15.95%, avg block time 11min 54secs]. On the 28th price crashed from $6674 to $6138 ( -8%).
  2. 8 Nov 2019 [difficulty adjustment -7.1%, avg block time 10min 46secs]. On the same day price crashed from $9234 to $8783 ( -4.88%).
  3. The next big adjustment was around Nov to Dec 2018 and there were 3 big adjustments with high block times.

Current situation:
We are 1 day 10 hours from the next difficulty adjustment. Projected difficulty adjustment is -5.61% (https://fork.lol/pow/retarget), which could indicate a small dip. However, take note that the date of last adjustment was the 5th and the 3rd halving was on the 11th, between the 5th to the 11th there was increased hashrate from miners trying to mine the final week of 12.5btc that offset the really slow block times after the halving. Therefore it will be the next difficulty adjustment after the one on the 20th that will completely reflect the slower block times after the halving. Currently the median block time taken on the 17th was around 14min (-28.5% difficulty adjustment).
For people who do not understand blockchain, basically with the Bitcoin 3rd halving, mining profitability fell for a lot of miners and they probably turned off their miners therefore the blockchain mining time became considerably slower which is reflected with slow transaction speed and higher fees as seen currently. Bitcoin sellers moving their BTC from wallet to an exchange are faced with slow transaction speed and therefore the sell pressure of BTC fell considerably which will attribute to the current price increase. There is a correlation between sell pressure and blockchain congestion (the size of the correlation is undetermined).
There is going to be a race. A race between BTC price hiking high enough to attract more miners to reduce avg block times versus the closing window of roughly 2 weeks before the next difficulty adjustment. If the price does not jump high enough, the next difficulty adjustment in the first week of June could signal a huge dip.
I am not an expert. I just did some research on the above and wanted to share with fellow Bitcoin compatriots so that we can tread with caution and not lose our shirts. I do not plan to short BTC but I will exit my BTC positions if I expect double digit negative difficulty adjustment in early June.
Please visit the original post here https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/gm23pe/warning_blockchain_difficulty_adjustment/
There are pictures in the original post as well as 2nd halving evidence with pics. I could not post pics here. If possible please upvote the original post, a lot of people downvote it. Not sure why people downvote it, maybe veterans attempting to hide information from newcomers to fleece them of their shirt.

Update 1:>! As of writing, I have opened a small short position on Bitcoin. Stop loss around 10k, estimated take profit around 8500. The reason is because the difficulty adjustment in the next 20 hours, even though is just -5% roughly is still significant. I direct you to look into all the difficulty adjustments in the last 2 years and you will know how rare it is. The ones I caught were all listed at the very top of the post. Since it is my first time shorting BTC, I take this as a learning opportunity so that I will have some experience to face the bigger difficulty adjustment in the first week of June. Analysis into execution, even in failure I am happy.!<
Update 2: The difficulty adjustment (DA) happened roughly 6 hours ago and the sell pressure from -6% DA did not seem to be affecting the market much. However, please take a look now at the estimation for the next DA.
On https://bitcoin.clarkmoody.com/dashboard/ it is estimated to be -25%.
On https://fork.lol/pow/retarget estimated to be -18%.
On https://www.blockchain.com/charts/median-confirmation-time the median block time for the last day was 16.8min.
My original proposition that the true DA of the halving can only be realized in the next DA stands and that it will be considerable. The increased sell pressure from that DA will be highly significant. That is why there is a race by current miners to get the BTC price up high enough to attract more miners to not have the DA drop too much.
Update 3: Current BTC price at $9100 ( ~39 hours after DA). Then again BTC could have dropped from all sorts of reason. However the coincidence with the DA and with all the past DA is just too high to simply shrug off as irrelevant. Anyways past result cannot predict future ones, stay safe with the trading. Will no longer check on this post.

What is PYRK?

What is PYRK?
Greetings. 🤗 Today we will tell you about the PYRK project and about its features.
💡 PYRK is a privacy centric cryptographic currency based on the work of Bitcoin, Dash, and Digibyte.
📌 Built for the community, we've taken some of the best features of the top utility coins to create a new coin which launched on May 12th, 2020.
⚙️ PYRK’s improvements include triple algorithm Proof of Work with Multishield difficulty adjustment, Masternodes, Private Send, Community Fund Governance, and Simple Tokens based loosely on the Color Coins protocol.
🔹 PYRK has borrowed from DASH all the best features. Fast work speed. The ability to deploy masternodes and the ease of mining, and all this at very low fees.
🔹 Multishield is a "difficulty retargeting" method to maintain the "average" block timing, by automatically changing the complexity of mining on the network.
🔹 Thanks to the PYRK’s Triple Proof-of-Work algorithm, it is possible to mine on different algorithms, including SHA256, Scrypt, and X11. Thus, it is very unlikely for a single miner to attain 100% of the hash rate of a single algorithm.
🔹 In PYRK, anonymity is the cornerstone, so we use a technology called PrivateSend, originally developed by DASH. PrivateSend decentrally mixes all your coins with strangers, giving newly generated addresses, allowing you to maximize transaction privacy.
🔹 You can run a masternode. In PYRK Masternodes are all paid from generated block rewards. The Masternode rewards start at block 10,000 and the master node network receives 20% of the block reward.

Multishield Difficulty Adjustment Algorithm

Multishield Difficulty Adjustment Algorithm
Greetings, community. 👋🏻 Today we will tell you what MultiShield is and what its features in PYRK are.
📌 What is MultiShield?
MultiShield is the advanced version of the original DigiShield. DigiShield was created specifically to protect the DigiByte project from the threat posed by multipools that inflated the price of cryptocurrency in case it was too easy to mine. It creates an asymmetric realtime difficulty adjustment, and is now even widely implemented in many other blockchain.
Mining complexity is configured separately for each algorithm, depending on the current power distribution. The complexity parameter is changed on each block. This mechanism is called MultiShield. The block generation time in the system is 15 seconds.
According to the developers, the MultiShield complexity adjustment mechanism guarantees a “fair twenty percent distribution between all five algorithms” and the detection of any “sudden influx” of computing power.
📌 What are MultiShield features in PYRK?
✅ PYRK platform uses the Multishield difficulty adjustment algorithm to prevent difficulty spike issues resulting from burst mining. PYRK has a 90-second block timing target, meaning mathematically based on the previous blocks the "difficulty" in finding the cryptographic answer for each block will become harder or easier in order to maintain an approximate 90-second block timing.
✅ MultiShield adjusts after each block, rather than once every 2016 blocks (like in Bitcoin). MultiShield is designed to let the difficulty "fall" very fast, in order that the chain doesn't freeze.
✅ MultiShield was originally created to account for such wild fluctuations, so that the blockchain doesn't "freeze" when a large exodus of hash power occurs. It also means miners cannot flood a few consecutive blocks with a high amount of hash power and benefit from low difficulty, giving blocks near instantly one after another before traditional difficulty retargeting occurs.

Methods of "difficulty retargeting" in the PYRK project

Methods of
Hello. 👋🏻 Today we will tell you about MultiShield and difficulty retargeting.
📌 In mining with the Proof-of-Work algorithm, the goal determines the complexity and, therefore, affects the time required to find a solution. As a result, logical questions arise, why is difficulty regulated, who corrects it, and how?
📌 Blocks in the blockchain are generated every n minutes. This determines the frequency of issuing the currency and the speed of settlement of transactions. It must remain constant not only for a short period, but also for many decades. The power of computers is growing rapidly and the number of mining participants is also constantly changing. Given these changes, the block generation time should remain unchanged. For this, the complexity of mining must be adjusted.
📌 For this, there is a retargeting of complexity, which occurs automatically and on each node independently. If the network finds blocks faster than every n minutes, the complexity increases (the goal decreases). If block detection is slower than expected, complexity decreases (target increases).
🛡 PYRK MultiShield solution
🔹 PYRK has a 90-second block timing target, meaning mathematically based on the previous blocks the "difficulty" in finding the cryptographic answer for each block will become harder or easier in order to maintain an approximate 90-second block timing. Miners sometimes change between the blockchains that they mine, especially on smaller chains, in order to maximize profits. For chains that have sporadic mining bursts this can cause long periods of extremely high difficulty, which results in exceedingly long block times.
🔹 MultiShield adjusts after each block, rather than once every 2016 blocks (like originally in Bitcoin). MultiShield is designed to let the difficulty "drop" very fast, in order that the chain doesn't freeze. MultiShield was originally created to account for such wild fluctuations, so that the blockchain doesn't "freeze" when a large exodus of hash power occurs. It also means miners cannot flood a few consecutive blocks with a high amount of hash power and benefit from low difficulty, giving blocks near instantly one after another before traditional difficulty retargeting occurs.

Technical details of the Earthcoin network 2019

Technical details of the Earthcoin network 2019
Blockchain parameters
crypt hashing algorithm
Proof of Work (POW) mining
60 seconds block target
Difficulty retarget after each block (+167%, -91%)
Total coins will be 13.5 billion coins (infinite by a theory, because the minimal block reward is 1 EAC, but in the practice 13.5*109 will not be exceeded within the next 2000 years)
50 confirmations per minted block
5 confirmations per transaction
Supports transaction messages
Initial block reward on average 10,000 EAC, varies seasonly ( currently 625 EAC) Block payout is halved every year, minimum payout of 1 EAC per block Superblocks every 14 and 31 day The default ports are 35677 (P2P-network) and 15678 (RPC-calls, optional)
Transaction speed
The mechanism behind Earthcoin which is based on peer-to-peer, allows transactions to happen very quickly. This means that once you pay or get payed with Earthcoin, the time taken to see the money transferred is equal or sometimes faster than the avarege debit card. Earthcoin promotes transaction times of approximatly 30 seconds where it is actually closer to 10-15 seconds which is nowadays regarded as being instant. The true strength behind this speed is the abillity to use it in any store in the near future with the same feel of speed as the currency you hold today.
Security
The Earthcoin network had been attacked by a 51% attack and controlled by a group of hackers for several months in the middle of 2017. Thanks to the unwavering efforts of the community, the attack was thrown back and EarthCoin was returned to all users. The source code was then fixed, secured against similar attacks in the future and a unique protection against time travel attack was implemented. The EarthCoin code is now much more secure than most of other cryptocurrencies. In the first half of 2019, a major upgrade of the Earthcoin network was done and security features according to the current blockchain protocol of Bitcoin and Litecoin networks were implemented.

PYRK mining features in the unstable crypto world

PYRK mining features in the unstable crypto world
Greetings, community! 👋🏻 Today we will tell you about the PYRK mining features in the unstable crypto world.
📉 The crypto market is not stable. However, unlike the stock market, the crypto market, especially individual coins, depends on the hype, rumors around them, and more. This contributes to massive purchases or sales of coins, price fluctuations, hype leads new miners, anti-hype - contributes to their outflow.
📈 Changing the number of miners affects the network load. A sudden increase in the number of miners leads to an increase in computing power, which makes mining too easy. A quick and sudden outflow of miners leads to a sharp increase in the complexity of mining.
📊 That is why PYRK decided to use the Multishield technology, originally developed by Digibyte.
🔗 Multishield is a "difficulty retargeting" method to maintain the "average" block timing, by automatically changing the complexity of mining on the network. The idea being that as there is more hash-power provided by the miners it needs to become harder and harder to find the blocks.
✔️ Pyrk has a 90-second block timing target, meaning mathematically based on the previous blocks the "difficulty" in finding the cryptographic answer for each block will become harder or easier in order to maintain an approximate 90-second block timing. The original Bitcoin adjusts difficulty every 2016 blocks. However, MultiShield adjusts after each block, rather than once every 2016 blocks.
✔️ MultiShield is designed to drop the difficulty fast to ensure that the chain doesn't freeze. MultiShield was originally created to account for such wild fluctuations, so that the blockchain doesn't "freeze" when a large exodus of hash power occurs. It also means miners cannot flood a few consecutive blocks with a high amount of hash power and benefit from low difficulty, giving blocks near instantly one after another before traditional difficulty retargeting occurs.

If the Bitcoin hashrate fell by 90% overnight, how would the community respond?

Would an emergency difficulty adjustment make sense? Allow CPUs to get back into the mining game?
The concentration of mining in China feels somewhat concerning, which is why I ask.

Similarities and differences between Bitcoin and PYRK

Similarities and differences between Bitcoin and PYRK
Hello. 👋🏻 In this post, we will tell you about the similarities and differences between Bitcoin and PYRK.
PYRK is a cryptocurrency based on Bitcoin, with additional features imported from both Dash and Digibyte. Improvements include triple algorithm Proof of Work with Multishield difficulty adjustment, Masternodes, Private Send, and a Community Fund. With plans for Simple Tokens.
Similarities and differences between Bitcoin and PYRK solutions
📌 Difficulty retargeting
Due to the volatility of the crypto market, the influx and outflow of miners in the network, destabilization of the blocking, and confirmation times can occur. For this, Bitcoin uses "difficulty retargeting". PYRK uses the same principle to solve this problem. PYRK has a 90-second block timing target, meaning mathematically based on the previous blocks the "difficulty" in finding the cryptographic answer for each block will become harder or easier to maintain an approximate 90-second block timing. However, unlike Bitcoin, PYRK adjusts difficulty after each block, rather than once every 2016 blocks, thus being more flexible and stable.
📌 Masternodes
Just like Bitcoin, PYRK also uses masternodes. Masternodes are all paid from generated block rewards. The Masternode rewards start at block 10,000 and the master node network receives 20% of the block reward. At block 100,000, the reward goes up to 30%, however, the collateral also goes up at block 100,000 to 2500 PYRK.
📌 Having
A different approach to restricting the inflation of mining is taken in Pyrk, using a 20% reduction of the supply every 200,000 blocks. This is done as opposed to 50% halving implemented by Bitcoin and thus reduces the initial shock impact of a halving event.
📌 Simple Tokens
A future improvement planned for PYRK is Simple Tokens. This is similar to the SLP (Simple Ledger Protocol) used by Bitcoin Cash. There are, however, some issues with their implementation that we would like to improve on.

Bitcoin Block time

I am really wondering about BTC Block Time. This morning only 6 Block found in 2 hours. Of course it depends on luck. But it depends also an HASH Rate. This is so enormous high and only adapted every 2 weeks. Why does the biggest coin does not solve this difficulty problem? And why still more and more miners start so that the difficulty rises without watching the price.

I was thinking about Bitcoin current transactions "overloading", wouldn't it be more feasible to reduce the time needed for a generation of a block to fix the issue?
