Why did Ethereum difficulty spike recently?

Recommended Posts

Three days ago I noticed a serious drop in my mining income and went to do some research.
All I could find is this chart showing some huge jump in mining difficulty which explains reduced income.

Initially, I thought that it was connected with the rise of $ but that doesn't cover it.

Does anyone know why did the difficulty increase so much?
When is the block time increase happening?

mining difficulty goes higher as the hash power goes high too. therefore the more the miner, higher difficulty. eth mining difficulty spikes because of the sudden increase of numbers of gpu miners
