Stranded Difficulty Issue (PoW) Crypto Mining
Stranded Difficulty Issue (PoW) Crypto Mining
The issue results when a large amount of hashrate jumps over to a smaller network, resulting in a higher network difficulty, then jumps back, leaving the network’s remaining miners to work on a difficulty not meant for that level of hashrate (essentially stranding miners).
