Base Target - A dynamically adjusted Forging target, designed to maintain an approximately steady rate of block generation. When blocks are generated too frequently, the base target is adjusted smaller by the Ardor network, which makes it less likely that the random numbers computed by each active node every second will be less than the base target multiplied by the node's effective balance. If all existing ARDR were actively forging, the base target would average about 100%. If it averages about 400%, for example, then only about one-fourth of existing ARDR are actively involved in forging.
