They should make it less time a week to crack shit at the same hardness. So we dont have to waste so much electric this summer. Imagine if all the hashing was done for an hour on sunday every week . . it would be RattRace5000 lolol

In fact that is a great idea! It would save a lot of energy and it wouldn't affect anything.

But I think there's one problem:

A part of the calculations is needed for securing and verifying the payments... And I don't think people only want to buy stuff on sunday  Grin

Unfortunately, there is no "they" that can change it.  It's built into the protocol and the clients.
You can't easily "tune" it to make changes to the global environment, nor would you want to, as you'd open yourself up for abuse.

90% of the world's population live on the northern hemisphere. And a lot of those living on the southern half think a $30 Nokia phone is an awesome piece of tech, even if they have to walk an hour to get in range of the nearest cell tower.

Bitcoins: solid enough to build pyramids.

Since we all be going to heat in winter with our Radeons, Difficulty doesn't really matter if you save the standard heating costs, eh?


Maybe road salt goes short again and we can sell our prebought tons in btc. What a boom.

Hint: Get your relatives a btc-account for christmas.

Sounds interesting, until you realize that assuming that at difficulty 1 you'd calculate the whole week, and now at difficulty 567358 you'd only be allowed to calculate for 1.066 seconds (http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=1%2F567358+week). There is no way to coordinate this timeslot worldwide Cheesy
Not to speak that all transactions would be confirmed in that small timeslot...
