Rigly Newsletter for Epoch 406

We entered the new difficulty epoch on Saturday, November 25th, block height 818,496.

Bitcoin network difficulty is now 67.96 trillion (+5.07%) and also saw an all-time high over 500 EH/s. At the same time, transaction fees as a percentage of mining rewards also continue to reach new highs, in large part due to ordinals-related activity.


This week's auctions end on Wednesday @ 17:00-19:00 US/Eastern time

100 TH/s by future difficulty epoch
