On the morning of May 20, the first change in the complexity of mining Bitcoin took place after the recent halving — the indicator fell by 6%. The reason lies in the hashrate falling after halving the block reward. Now outdated equipment can once again generate revenue at the cost of electricity below $0.05 kW/h. In some provinces of China, due to the rainy season, tariffs for miners have been reduced to $0.03 kWh/h. This may prompt miners who have switched off, to return to cryptocurrency mining, according to Alejandro De La Torre, vice president of the PoolIn mining pool. According to BTC.com, in two weeks, complexity may decrease by another 6.3%. In early March, the indicator updated its historical maximum, but after the collapse of the exchange rate to $4,000 at the end of the month, it fell by 15.95%.
Can someone explain please when less people mine bitcoin this means difficulty decreases? Means coins can be mined much quicker means bitcoin price drops eventually? Sorry if it’s a silly easy question 🤦🏻♂️

Im sure Ray Dalio and Jamie Dimon dont even know what the rules of Bitcoin's Blockchain such as the limit of 21milion, the halving every 4 years and the increase/decrease of difficulty...
...i think they have NO idea about HOW this whole "system" of Bitcoin works... as many people, they think it is speculative....hmmm they will never understand it because they cant. They only know and believe in the corrupt Banking system... A new generation needs to come to change the whole financial market! So it will take another 10-20 years! HODL strong!!!
Bitcoin Difficulty Increase. Difficulty on the bitcoin network is a measure of how problematic it is to find a hash below a given target. Valid blocks must have a hash below the global block difficulty target. There is also a share difficulty which applies to mining pools and their ability to find a hash that is lower than the global target. Before we even begin to understand what bitcoin mining difficulty means, we need to know how mining works. We have covered this topic in detail before, so we will just give you a little overview before getting into the different nuances of difficulty. Following that, we will look at how mining difficulty is calculated and how it changes to suit the network’s needs. At the time of the last difficulty decrease on January 23rd 2013 when the difficulty drop to 2,968,775 (a -8.64% decrease) the total bitcoin network was only 21,251 GH/s (or 21,251,000 hashes per second). Back then, the price of bitcoins no longer justified the electricity it took to run your GPU mining rigs. Difficulty is a measure of how difficult it is to find a hash below a given target. The Bitcoin network has a global block difficulty. Valid blocks must have a hash below this target. Mining pools also have a pool-specific share difficulty setting a lower limit for shares. How often does the network difficulty change? Every 2016 blocks. Now, Difficulty is re-calculated every block to ensure blocks are found every 10 minutes on average. As more computers attempt to mine Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and increase the Hash Rate, the difficulty will increase. If the Hash Rate decreases, difficulty will decrease.
