Ethereum Difficulty Chart
The Ethereum difficulty chart plots a visual representation of the historical Ethereum difficulty target increases and decreases over time up to the current Ethereum block.
ETH Difficulty: 1.00
Ethereum Block Height: 16,898,958
Current Ethereum Difficulty
The current ETH difficulty is 1.00 at block 16,898,958, resulting in a Ethereum mining difficulty increase of 0.00% in the last 24 hours.
The Ethereum difficulty chart plots the Ethereum difficulty target over time and the current Ethereum difficulty (ETH diff) target. Including a historical data graph visualizing ETH mining difficulty chart values with Ethereum difficulty jumps and adjustments (both increases & decreases) defaulted to today with timeline options of 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 3 years, and all time.
Ethereum Difficulty Increase
The ETH mining difficulty increase average in the last 24 hours is 0.00% at block 16,898,958 on the Ethereum blockchain network. In the last 7 days the Ethereum difficulty increase was 0.00%, with the increase in the last 30 days being 0.00%, and the last 90 days is 0.00%.

What is Ethereum difficulty?
Ethereum mining difficulty determines how difficult it will be to mine the next block and this is why it is referred to as the difficulty of Ethereum mining.
Ethereum difficulty is a measure of how many hashes (statistically) must be generated to find a valid solution to solve the next Ethereum block and earn the mining reward.
As you can see in the Ethereum difficulty chart above, the Ethereum Difficulty makes adjustments often.
Furthermore, the mining difficulty also keeps the block generation in line with the set block time, or the amount of time that should statistically pass between each block.
As more hashing power is added to the Ethereum mining network, the difficulty must increase to ensure blocks are not being generated too quickly.
In order for the blocks to be generated consistently, the difficulty must be increased or decreased, this is called a difficulty re-target.
On a difficulty re-target block (every block or every number of blocks), the difficulty is increased if the previous blocks where generated faster than the specified block time and decreased if the previous blocks where generated slower than the specified block time.
All that said, given a constant hashrate, when the ETH mining difficulty increases you earn less mining rewards due to the overall increase in the total Ethereum network hashrate.
Given, the frequent changes in Ethereum difficulty adjustments up and down, use our Ethereum mining calculator to calculate Ethereum mining profits.
