Ok, so BCH difficulty is now 17% of BTC, thanks to this new mechanism. They’re producing about 30 blocks a day, so most likely it won’t adjust downward further. What’s going to happen at the next regular difficulty adjustment block 479,808 in a little over a month?
Does the difficulty discount stay in place? Or is the new difficulty calculated with this discount in mind? Otherwise I would expect the next difficulty to be too high.
