Network Statistics

    What is Difficulty?

    Difficulty is a measure of how difficult it is for the miners to solve a block. The higher the difficulty, the harder it is to find a block. Difficulty is measured using SI (Metric International System of Units) prefixes, you can learn more in the following chart:

    M1000 k
    G1000 M
    T1000 G
    P1000 T
    E1000 P

    What is Block Time?

    Block time refers to the average time it takes for the entire network to mine a new block.

    What is Hashrate?

    Hashrate is a measure of the computational power the network is processing per second. It is calculated using difficulty/blocktime. Hashrate is measured using SI prefixes as well.
