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.

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.

Not only…

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…
