With two versions in place and the others current difficulty being so low, a lot of miners have switched over to mine it from BTC. But with so many miners switching, it will lower the difficulty on BTC in a few days. This in turn will attract the miners back for the decreased difficulty. I believe we will see this jumping back and forth trend a lot with two competing sha265 algorithms. I know of a few crypto coins that have implemented a nice fix for the jumping around and prevented this kind of profiteering. Perhaps a difficulty adjustment every block will stop the jumping around. What do you guys think? What kind of problems might there be? Or is it even doable? Any other ideas?
Bitcoin Difficulty Ribbon Calculation For Future Price Prediction
We may notice that the second 2-year cycle (6500%) is at 38% of the first 2-year cycle (16982%). Therefore if this pattern continues, we might see another parabolic increase which could again be expressed as 38% of the last cycle, which would translate into 2470%. escalation. If we choose variable x to be 3933 dollars and we know it will experience shift in price by whopping 2470%, then that means that the price could potentially reach… Well, you do the math :) https://preview.redd.it/916edpwtz4n31.png?width=768&format=png&auto=webp&s=d34dc8a04ac9528bafbd7444b68cd66910db7a93
I am very much looking forward to Bitcoin Core's next difficulty adjustment in 1.75 days. My prediction is that 1.) Bitcoin Cash's price will get pumped, 2.) hashrate will flock to it, 3.) Bitcoin Core's block time will go up markedly for 3+ weeks. 4.) Bitcoin Core price will drop.
Let's see how I do on this prediciton over the next week or so.
In 2013, I built an algorithm that made predictions about BTC price fluctuations and mining difficulty. (Discussion on how Bitcoin is becoming crash proof, and why Wall Street needs to trim the fat.)
My algorithm showed a "rubber banding" effect. With outliers excluded from my data, it was 94% accurate. With outliers included with my data, it was still 85% accurate. When difficulty sees large gains, price (USD valuation) will rise steadily, then begin dropping sharply. When BTC to USD sees large gains, difficulty will change at a slower rate at first, then drop sharply in terms of growth proportion to it's standard deviations of movement. We are currently witnessing this rubber band lag on difficulty fueled by the giant price increase. As difficulty drops, more miners will enter the market, and liquidity in the "minted" supply of Bitcoins will increase. Ultimately, from an economics standpoint, this transition will act as a harmonious correction in either direction, for either rubber banding case. Bitcoin has a built-in harmonic motion between the liquid market, USD valuation, difficulty, and supply/demand liquidity. My algorithm lines up with most of the hedge fund guys throwing out large 5 figure valuations for 2018. I would declare with a degree of certainty above 50% that we will see a valuation of between $12,500 and $20,000 in early spring/late winter. This will be followed by a gradual decline until near mid-end of Summer. At which point valuation will begin increasing again, and will hit more... asinine valuations, near the end of 2018. [[This timing range of Summer to Winter of 2018 is the most logical location for a major bubble and crash event, according my current algorithms.]] The real threat of a bubble exists still, BUT, Bitcoin has developed a resistance to massive market swings, and as it's overall USD valuation increases, the risk is dropping steeply. You must consider that these days, for Bitcoin's valuation to move $50 USD, requires BILLIONS of USD in trade transactions to occur. Since mainstream Wallstreet isn't a heavy player in Bitcoin still, this makes BTC immune/resistant to flash crashes, as most long term HODLers are "indoctrinated" and won't fall prey to panic. (Yet, few players in the Bitcoin space are not and could not throw around hundreds of millions of dollars just to create a synthetic pump or crash, unlike 2011-2013 when some larger whales could tip the whole market.) The amount of liquid capital in BTC owned by "panicky public" is becoming a negligible amount in proportion, and will soon cease having any real effect on day to day valuations. Financiers, wall street, hedge funds. If anyone in your financial department has an opinion within the realm of the following: "I don't understand it." "It's a scam." "It's not worth looking into." "It is too volatile." I would solemnly consider a one to one meeting with that employee. Bitcoin's market cap is higher than the majority of Fortune 500 companies annual revenue. Bitcoin's daily trade magnitudes are between 2 billion and 10 billion USD worth of DAILY active movement. If an employee is refusing to even look into it, because they "don't understand" or "believe it is a scam" Make them look into it, or fire their negligent ass. That level of ignorance is equally as bad, as if your company had a major competitor rising in their market space, and this employee refused to research that competitor at all. That's the type of value movement going on now. Tulip mania boomed and exploded in roughly 2-3 years. This is NOT a tulip situation. Bitcoin was established in 2010 and has had growth outpacing every other financial investment possible for the LAST SEVEN YEARS.
PSA: new attack likely to start at 7pm GMT / 2pm EST on 13 Nov when Bcash hard forks it’s difficulty again. Prediction is sharp drop in difficulty to steal hash rate and keep Bitcoin mem pool full and continue price pump. Remember: every stunt devalues their centrally controlled coin.

Bitcoin difficulty and electricity costs - Any predictions regarding how they will relate moving forward?
It appears to me that the difficulty has plateaued in the last few days. I'm not on this sub-reddit much, but heard at least one story of someone shutting down their mining operation because of diminishing returns… and thought that perhaps new miners got their electricity bill and turned it off - thus the plateau. This is pure speculation. I have no idea. Do you have any predictions regarding how the difficulty and electricity rates will relate moving forward?

Bitcoin difficulty is an estimate about how difficult it is to mine (find) a new bitcoin block. Bitcoin mining has two main purposes. One is adding transactions to the bitcoin block chain. The other purpose is to create new bitcoins. Bitcoin difficulty is a value used to show how hard is it to find a hash that will be lower than target defined by system. Bitcoin mining difficulty is changed every 2016 blocks. The difficulty charts show that it has increased significantly. The Bitcoin difficulty chart provides the current Bitcoin difficulty (BTC diff) target as well as a historical data graph visualizing Bitcoin mining difficulty chart values with BTC difficulty adjustments (both increases and 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 Difficulty is re-calculated every 2016 blocks to ensure blocks are found every 10 minutes on average. As more computers attempt to mine Bitcoin Core (BTC) and increase the Hash Rate, the difficulty will increase. If the Hash Rate decreases, difficulty will decrease.
