Network Hashrate Question?
« on: August 19, 2013, 10:45:30 AM »
Network Hashrate: 60.253 MH/s     Pool Hashrate: 94.246 MH/s @ http://gld.cryptocoinmine.com/. why is there a big difference? (I already saw that in many pools not only cryptomine) can someone explain it ? Why this hapen?

My guess is that this will happen when the real time network hashrate spikes up.  The Network Hashrate as reported by the blockchain and other pools is based on a 4 hour average.  Therefore, it will have a lag.  The Pool Hashrate is probably based on a shorter time period.  If the hashrate of the pool is higher than the network, that means that a large amount hash power is being added.  Over time the 4 hour average Network hash rate will increase. 

Large changes in network hashrate are probably due to the difficulty changes and miners looking for the most profitable coins.
