Bitcoin Miners Uber Bullish as Difficulty Set for 60% Quarterly Growth
William Suberg's original article for cointelegraph.com reduced by 48%
Bitcoin will see its mining difficulty grow by almost two-thirds in Q3 2019, new data reveals as the metric astounds markets. Uploading historical and future projections to Twitter on Sept. 19, well-known analyst Kevin Rooke noted difficulty had already expanded at an average of 42% each quarter since 2016.
With the exception of Q4 2018, the floor of the Bitcoin bear market, growth has been positive consistently ever since. Difficulty refers to the amount of effort required to solve the complex equations which verify blocks of Bitcoin transactions and unlock block rewards. The more competition there is on the Bitcoin network, the more difficulty increases; a lack of interest conversely sparks a decrease to incentivize participation.
As Cointelegraph reported, Bitcoin mining difficulty is just one of the fundamental technical indicators to beat expectations this year. According to proponents, such progress precedes a similar jump in Bitcoin price, this nonetheless evading markets so far in Q3. "Someone is confident," Lightning Torch organizer Hodlonaut summarized on Thursday.
