[PoSV] block difficulty will reset when PoSV kicks in
Just a quick note.
The block difficulty, starting from the first PoSV block, will be reset to 1 because its value during PoW phase has nothing to do with PoSV phase. Our difficulty-retargeting algorithm KGW requires at minimum 360 (= 1440 / 4) blocks for adjustment, which means we will see 360 PoSV blocks minted rather quickly (depending on how many people will mint at the time) before we see the block difficulty starts to go up substantially.
So don’t be surprised when you see many PoSV blocks with difficulty equal 1 tomorrow at the beginning. It’s all part of the plan.
