maybe it spiked before because they were testing new machine, and now they are selling them all at once and in the meantime the diff went down? also i don't think it's wise for them to rise the diff so much, because the profit would be the same as before, just with more consumption

I think miners just point their L3+ to more profitable Scrypt coin like DGB or GAME, I myseft  also do that, earn about 20% more comparing with mining LTC.

People have been doing that but thats a large drop.  Someone is playing games.  That hashpower just didnt dissapear.  Will be watching closely.  But that was one or a couple large players disconnecting for some reason

Simple answer IMO and this is it below -- I'm sure it will bounce back in a few months.

A strange phenomenon is unfolding in China as Bitcoin miners mysteriously close down or relocate their operations.

Mines in the country’s Sichuan province were “reluctant” to discuss the reasons for withdrawal, major news resource People.cn reports.

Bitcoin has recently continued its expanding price as Chinese exchanges get the green light to allow Bitcoin withdrawals.

As traders delight in the new possibilities for sanctioned exchange use, however, a lack of corresponding regulation for miners is causing problems.

“A local official said the closure of the Bajiaoxi Mining Company aims at cracking down on illegal cash operations and on controlling systemic risks,” People reports, while no party was directly cited giving an explanation for the upset.

Sichuan’s hydroelectric power is among the world’s cheapest, but the departure of miners is set to cost one power station $147,000 per month in lost billing.

At a time when Bitcoin fees are higher than ever, the effect on miners themselves is also significant.

“The southwestern region has abundant hydropower resources,” an “insider” source told fellow publication YiCai Global.

“So electricity costs about half the price during the wet season. It’s hard to imagine why any mine would want to relocate now.”
