**Gapcoin's prime gaps**

In early 2018 the Gapcoin network found a new prime gap of maximum known merit! The merit M=G/ln(P1) of this gap is M=41.93878373153988, **the largest merit of any known prime gap**, and the first prime gap to be discovered with a merit exceeding 40. Source : http://www.trnicely.net/#MaxMerit

We already broke more than 544 records of first known occurrence prime gaps. (Note: New record data to be updated from the blockchain).

Also, if the difficulty reaches ~~38.07~~ **41.94**, every block will be a new world record: ~~Top 20 Prime Gaps~~

**First known occurrence prime gaps**

Gapcoin found 1215 first known occurrence prime gaps, and therefore broke the previous records for the smallest prime starting a gap with a specific length. The prime gaps are published at Dr. Nicely's site (http://www.trnicely.net/).

**Highest merits**

The merit of a prime gap is the ratio of it's size to the average prime gap size. With higher primes the average gap size increases. The merit is a measurement for how hard it is to find a gap.
