### What is Novacoin difficulty?

Novacoin 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 Novacoin mining.

Novacoin difficulty is a measure of how many hashes (statistically) must be generated to find a valid solution to solve the next Novacoin block and earn the mining reward.

As you can see in the **Novacoin difficulty chart** above, the Novacoin 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 Novacoin 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 NVC mining difficulty increases you earn less mining rewards due to the overall increase in the total Novacoin network hashrate.
