Current Proof of Stake Difficulty


#101

Still decreasing. Difficulty: 0.000261 . Not good.


#102

I calculated that there are about 38% BKS stakes minting and 35% NSR minting.


#103

Agree, but I’m minting more blocks than usual. I have almost 20% NSR at stake, haven’t seen that before.


#104

So can we infer that there is less interest in Nu after 1y of activity than in BCE before its release?


#105

The total network size is different. So no.


#106

probably.


#107

Not good then.


#108

Can someone explain me how to calculate how many BKS are minting right now?


#109

I do it like this.


#110

If you own less than 850,000 nsr (0.1% of the network) this method has a good bit of statistical fluctuation. You can help the numbers out by doing it for longer than a day though.


#111

relative error is 1/sqrt(number of blocks)

for example if you find 16 blocks in the period the error is 1/sqrt(16) = 1/4 = 25%


#112

difficulty: 0.00024847 …
still decreasing.
worrying.


#113

0.000234
still decreasing… :worried:


#114

Security decreasing ?


#115

I would say yes. I would be curious about what @JordanLee or @tomjoad think about that.


#116

0.00025773 now.


#117

What’s happening? Is Nu secure right now?


#118

Was it ever insecure? :wink:
With more difficulty there are obviously more NSR minting.

But would it have been likely that the not minting NSR had been used for attacking the network?
There would have been so much (value) at stake!

I’d say it appears to be even more secure than before :smile:


#119

I don’t have a quantitative idea of Nu’s security, though I know qualitatively, it is (much) higher than a system like, say Bitcoin


#120

0.000263 now.
