What is Mining Difficulty? - Tokenview Blockchain Knowledge Course
Before we begin to know what is mining difficulty, we first need to understand what is mining. We take Bitcoin as the example, The bitcoin miner picks up transactions waiting in the mempool and hashes them. They add a random hexadecimal value to the front of the hash and hashes the entire value. This hash needs to be less than a particular value, which is called 'difficulty.' The mining difficulty is used to maintain network integrity.
