Litecoin Cash (LCC) is a fork of Litecoin itself utilizing an SHA-256 hashing algorithm. While the initial goal was to focus on bringing back SHA-256, along the way we created "Hive Mining," an agent-based system allowing everyday users to participate in securing and hashing the network to earn real LCC rewards.

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:
OPTION 1: Continue to mine on the Core chain for 2 months, with drastically poor network performance (even slower transactions and even higher fees).
OPTION 2: Core hardforks and forces a difficulty recalculation to occur immediately after BU forks. Would Core actually do this? "Hard forks are dangerous" has been their motto and only defense thus far, so they'd have to eat crow on this one. But actually I see it as the only chance they have to maintain any sort of a chain at all.
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.
Less than 100 blocks to go before Bitcoin Cash difficulty retarget -- expect profitability to double. Retarget is at 479808. What will miners do?
A chain death spiral for Bitcoin Legacy is not entirely out of the question. If miners defect in droves.. it can happen. I know it may be premature for me to say that. For all we know tomorrow everything resets, but it's a real possibility. And I am a bit saddened, actually that it might occur. Interesting times, indeed.
Before any difficulty adjustments happen: If Bitcoin Cash gets 12.5% of the hashing power it will have the same capacity as current Bitcoin. If if takes 11.1% of the total hashing power then it will have the same capacity as post-fork, pre-retarget, pre-segwit Bitcoin.
This is corrected the next time a difficulty retargeting takes place. I wanted to know why the difficulty retargeting was designed to occur specifically every 2016 blocks? A shorter retargeting time would deal with significant fluctuations in hash rate more efficiently, but I assume there is a good reason for the duration being set as it is. Is it so that there is sufficient block arrival time ... Difficulty adjustment and retargeting algorithms. Another concept that has been introduced with the advent of bitcoin and altcoins is difficulty in retargeting algorithms. In bitcoin, a difficulty target is calculated simply by the following equation; however other coins have either developed their algorithms or implemented modified versions of ... The Bitcoin difficulty chart provides the current Bitcoin difficulty (BTC diff) target as well as a historical data graph visualizing Bitcoin mining difficulty chart values with BTC difficulty adjustments (both increases and decreases) defaulted to today with timeline options of 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 3 years, and all time (Purchase My Complete Intro to Crypto/Mentorship Course) https://gumroad.com/l/FullCryptoCourse OR buy the first part to see if you like it : https://gumroad... Bitcoin’s difficulty adjustment correlates to the network’s hash power, and as the hash rate increases, the difficulty increases. Notably, the difficulty adjustment algorithm has an off-by-one bug that leads to the calculation based off of the previous 2015 blocks, rather than precisely 2016. Further, clients do not exactly determine the difficulty, and it is more of an accurate ...
