Bitcoin cloud mining or even hosting of your hardware where others take care of it in their data center is a tricky thing to say it is safe or cost effective. The ROI can be much longer if at all as well. This can be due to the fees involved, the upfront costs and the value of Bitcoin during that time. The issue of if the cloud mining provider is a legitimate…

Bitcoin mining profitability calculator

There are three typical sources of the confusion you are experiencing: 1. The calculator is NOT telling you what you will earn in the next 24 hours. No, mining calculators cannot tell you exactly what you will earn from day to day. And they re not trying to. If you had a dice calculator it would tell you that your average roll will be 3.5. You can roll a die…

Bitcoin mining example

Earlier this year I model checker. The SAT-based model checker then performs the nonce search by trying to find a counter-example to the hypothesis that no nonce exists in the given block. This leads to either a counter-example which contains a nonce in its trace, or a proof that no valid nonce exists. Keep in mind, this is research code which is unoptimised…

Introduction to Bitcoin mining

Proof of work Cryptographer Adam Back realized in 1997 that it was possible to use hash functions to prove that you did a certain amount of computational work. His discovery took advantage of the special property of strong cryptographic hashes where each hash looks like random data regardless of what input was used to create it. For example, the main hash in…

Bitcoin mining with graphics card

Some Bitcoin users might wonder why there is a huge disparity between the mining output of a CPU versus a GPU. First, just to clarify, the CPU, or central processing unit , is the part of the computer that performs the will of the software loaded on the computer. It s the main executive for the entire machine. It is the master that tells all the parts of the…

What you need to mine bitcoins?

You definitely need custom built hardware for bitcoin mining. Since mining involves huge calculation of verifying SHA-256 encryption codes, regular CPU won t cut it. So you need custom built ASIC s which comprises of GPU s that can perform those computationally intensive calculations. Second of all, mining sure does push those computers to their limits. Not only…

The digital currency Bitcoin is having a bit of a moment, which is drawing the attention of cybercriminals. They don’t want to steal your money (though there is some of that too).

What is Bitcoin mining actually doing?

From trying to design my own ASIC-I got as far as having a simulated but not completely debugged Verilog implementation-I can tell you how mine would have worked. Whilst I have not checked, the design choices seem so obvious to me that I doubt anyone would do it differently. The inner loop of the mining process is a double SHA-256 hash of data where only one…

Standalone Bitcoin miners

Rather than working towards a centralized mining solution, I think we should focus our early efforts on a decentralized solution: p2pool. Zcashd, p2pool, and a standalone miner will all run on the same machine (no third party server needed). Not only does this prevent centralization of mining, but every miner will also be a full node. To achieve this we need…

When will the last Bitcoin be mined

The reward for mining Bitcoin is expected to see the second halving in its history later this year, potentially in June or July.

Unlike fiat currencies that…

The week after bitcoin mining reward halving, ForkLog decided to compile a short overview on the history of mining methods.
