What is mining difficulty?
Mining difficulty is a measurement used in the process of mining a cryptocurrency and refers to how difficult and time-consuming it is to find the right hash for each block. Low difficulty indicates that only a relatively low hashrate is required, resulting in lower mining competition. Conversely, a high mining difficulty indicates that it requires more processing power to validate transactions made on the blockchain. Mining difficulty applies to cryptocurrencies that utilize Proof of Work (PoW) algorithms, and the system will adjust the mining difficulty dynamically based on the overall network hashrate. It is beneficial for miners to understand the fundamentals of mining difficulty.

How can I set mining difficulty？
Type the parameters into your password bar in the miner status dashboard.
d=initial difficulty, md=minimum difficulty
For instance, d=2000 means that the initial difficulty will be 2000 after its connection. md=1000 means that the miner's minimum difficulty is 1000. No matter how low the hashrate is, the pool will never assign a difficulty less than 1000.
Recommended Difficulty = Hashrate (TH/s) × 1000
E.g: Bitmain Antminer S9 has 12T hashrate. Then the recommended difficulty would be: d = 12 * 1000 = 12000
