Hello,

http://blockexplorer.com/q/getdifficulty returns 1379223.4296725

Block details shows:

Difficulty: 1379192.288228 ("Bits": 1a0c2a12)

Why they are different and which one is correct?

The first link is the current difficulty on the network, the specific block details you linked was the difficulty when the block was generated.

For example, the genesis block shows a difficulty of 1 Smiley

Yes, but at the time I made the post this was the last block and the current difficulty. I think that they should match.
And the difference between them is just 31.1414445.
