Note: The shaded part of the graph is using estimated values based on the blockchain rather than recorded values read directly from the network over time. As time passes, the shaded portion will diminish.


This graph needs a bit more explanation. The block times are indicative of how the hashing rate is changing over time, with the proviso that the time it takes to obtain any given block varies from block to block even if the hash-rate stays the same. To counter this variation we average the last 504, and the last 1008 block times, and see what the difference is between them - this is what is being plotted.

  • The grey line is the time it took to find a block, averaged over the last 504 blocks.
  • The blue line is the time it took to find a block, averaged over the last 1008 blocks.

    When the grey line is lower than the blue line, the block-generation-time is decreasing which means the hashing power is increasing over time. The further the grey line is below the blue line, the faster the block-generation time is decreasing.

    After 2016 blocks, Litecoin will adjust the difficulty (the red line) to the value of the estimated difficulty (the purple line). Worth noting that there's a small scaling issue I have yet to resolve on this where the two aren't *quite* meeting. I'll fix it soon.



  • The above graph shows the distribution in hash-rate for the time-period for which we have sampled data.
