This marks the second negative adjustment this year, in the wake of roughly two of the past 12 months’ highest adjustments at approximately 7% and 8%, respectively. This minor drop in difficulty is primarily due to the rapid increase in the hash rate over the past months, a trend that hasn’t maintained its upswing in the last two weeks.

Using a seven-day moving average, the hash rate currently stands at 582 EH/s, slightly below its all-time peak of 595 EH/s.
