Mining

by Philip Ernisse

Mining – a process during which transactions are verified and added to the P2P network. It is conducted by the miners, which have to solve a cryptographic problem. In order to do it, miners have to produce the hash equal or less than the target hash; they try to do it again and again, inputting the combination of the block header and nonce into a hash algorithm, until the solution is found.
