Process of Bitcoin Mining - SocialUnderground

Mining Bitcoin

Bitcoin mining is analogous to the mining of gold, but its digital form. The process involves specialized computers solving algorithmic equations or hash functions. These problems help miners to confirm blocks of transactions held within the network. Bitcoin mining provides a reward for miners by paying out in Bitcoin in turn the miners confirm transactions on the blockchain. Miners introduce new Bitcoin into the network and also secure the system with transaction confirmation.

What is really happening in the bitcoin mining process?

What is really happening in the bitcoin mining process?
April 30, 2020 | There’s more than just the sound of thousands of vacuums
It is very easy to just silo the arcane bitcoin mining process as just a bunch of machines computing mathematical algorithms. Although for the most part this is true, and the veracity of this is not far off from the real truth, but what we see on the surface is not identical to what we see below the surface. Understanding bitcoin mining goes beyond the USB enabled ASIC miners we are accustomed to see on every thumbnail article we come across related to this industry.

It’s easy to understand why newbies halt their understanding of bitcoin mining to just state-of-the-art supercomputers with cool flickering neon green lights.
The following below is taken from the masterpiece of a novel, “Mastering Bitcoin”, by the great Andreas Antonopolous. As elegant as it sounds, its best to restate Andreas’ explanation of emergent consensus.
“Satoshi Nakamoto’s main invention is the decentralized mechanism for emergent consensus. Emergent, because consensus is not achieved explicitly — there is no election or fixed moment when consensus occurs. Instead, consensus is an emergent artifact of the asynchronous interaction of thousands of independent nodes, all following simple rules. All the properties of bitcoin, including currency, transactions, payments, and the security model that does not depend on central authority or trust, derive from this invention.
Bitcoin’s decentralized consensus emerges from the interplay of four processes that occur independently on nodes across the network:
  • Independent verification of each transaction, by every full node, based on a comprehensive list of criteria
  • Independent aggregation of those transactions into new blocks by mining nodes, coupled with demonstrated computation through a proof-of-work algorithm
  • Independent verification of the new blocks by every node and assembly into a chain
  • Independent selection, by every node, of the chain with the most cumulative computation demonstrated through proof of work”
The following is a scenario taken from the book as well which excellently demonstrates what is going on with a mining node and its corresponding connected miner machine:
“A mining node is listening for transactions, trying to mine a new block and also listening for blocks discovered by other nodes. The arrival of this block signifies the end of the competition for block 277,315 and the beginning of the competition to create block 277,316. During the previous 10 minutes, while Jing’s node was searching for a solution to block 277,315, it was also collecting transactions in preparation for the next block. By now it has collected a few hundred transactions in the memory pool. Upon receiving block 277,315 and validating it, Jing’s node will also check all the transactions in the memory pool and remove any that were included in block 277,315. Whatever transactions remain in the memory pool are unconfirmed and are waiting to be recorded in a new block. Jing’s node immediately constructs a new empty block, a candidate for block 277,316. This block is called a candidate block because it is not yet a valid block, as it does not contain a valid proof of work. The block becomes valid only if the miner succeeds in finding a solution to the proof-of-work algorithm.
These specialized machines are connected to his mining node over USB. Next, the mining node running on Jing’s desktop transmits the block header to his mining hardware, which starts testing trillions of nonces per second.”
That is essentially the process of what a miner machine and a mining node is going through each every second it is hooked up to the network. Of course this is just a high level overview with a bland taste but one could go more in depth by reading the book mentioned.

Why isn't CoinJoin implemented as part of the Bitcoin software, and mining process?

If I understand correctly CoinJoin/CoinShuffle, it is done by combining and mixing inputs and outputs from several transactions so that it is harder to identify the origin of those transactions.
Could this process be implemented as part of the Bitcoin software itself? So that when a new block is mined all inputs and outputs in all the transactions included in that block are mixed (CoinJoined), thus making Bitcoin more private?
It even sounds like this change could be implemented as a soft fork, backwards compatible with old rules?
Sorry if this is completely stupid and makes no sense at all, or if it is already in some BIP that I could not find.

Bitcoin mining: popular software for managing the processes

The Bitcoin exchange rate faced a significant drop not a long time ago, so a lot of miners think that mining this coin is not as profitable as before. However, Bitcoin is stabilizing, so now is the time to start mining it again. And, definitely, it is better to do this with reliable and efficient software.
There are a lot of operating systems for managing Bitcoin mining, so making a final choice can be a rather complicated task. This guide is here to help you — it describes features, advantages and disadvantages of the most popular software.

Hive OS: an all-in-one solution

Hive OS is a highly secure and stable mining platform based on the Linux distribution of Ubuntu. Besides, you will have no difficulties with its installation, setup and use. However, if you have any questions, you can always get in touch with the support team. The support is provided 24/7, so you will get help very quickly. There is also an extensive knowledge base that you can use.
Hive OS significantly simplifies even large farms’ management. A lot of things can be automated. For instance, automatic control of the fans, execution of commands according to the schedule, etc. Apart from this, switching between pools, wallets or coins takes only a second. The list of miners is updated regularly, just like the list of features — the Hive OS team is constantly working on the system considering the needs of the community. With Hive OS it is also possible to control the workers remotely.
Hive OS allows mining Bitcoin on ASICs and GPU rigs, offers its own pool and custom firmware for ASICs. It is an all-in-one solution that you can use in order to make the management process simpler and increase your profits.

СGMiner: suitable for experienced owners of AMD cards

CGMiner is an open-source miner focused specifically on mining Bitcoin (although some other coins can also be mined here). It supports GPU, ASIC and CPU mining, and is available for the following platforms: Windows, Linux and OS X. While using all the traditional features (for instance, overclocking) you won’t have to pay a dev fee.
However, this miner is not that suitable for inexperienced users — you at least need to have some knowledge of GitHub. Another thing to keep in mind is that CGMiner doesn’t work well with Nvidia cards.

Cudo Miner: a nice option for beginners

Cudo Miner is a simple to use crypto mining platform. Remote management, monitoring and overclocking — these and other standard features are available. Cudo Miner also offers automated mining and auto coin switching. Besides, if necessary, you can create custom templates in order to increase performance of your devices.
On the other side, Cudo Miner doesn’t support ASICs. One more unpleasant thing is that the fees are based on the amount of cryptocurrency mined in the last 30 days, and they are pretty high. For example, for less than 0.005 BTC, the fee is 6.5%.

SimpleMining: the choice of GPU owners

SimpleMining is a mining OS platform supporting all modern Nvidia and AMD GPUs. Using it, you can take bulk actions on multiple devices. Standard features like overclocking and undervolting are available as well. Besides, there are a lot of miner programmes to choose from, but you can still add a custom miner if necessary. But please keep in mind that it is impossible to mix AMD and Nvidia in one rig.

Hashr8: for users who know everything about mining

Hashr8 is an operating system suitable both for ASICs and GPU rigs. The system also supports many pools and miners. You can monitor devices not only in the web interface, but also via the mobile application. Support is provided around the clock. Besides, Hashr8 can be used for free — this option is available to miners using up to 3 devices inclusive. At the same time, there are no other restrictions — free users can use all the functions of the system.
However, despite the above-mentioned benefits, Hashr8 also has some disadvantages. Firstly, you can contact the support team only using the form on the website or by email, so there is no chance for getting help instantly. The website also has no FAQ, so if you run into a problem, you are likely to have to solve it yourself. Secondly, Hashr8 is a rather unstable system, which can affect your income.

Awesome Miner: suitable for centralized mining management

Awesome Miner allows managing and monitoring the mining operations, and supports ASICs and GPU rigs (CPU mining is possible too). Using it, you can perform operations both on individual miners and the groups, and build templates for easier configuration. Note that Awesome Miner can be used for free, but on certain conditions: you can have up to 2 miners, while the list of available features is rather limited.
Awesome Miner runs only on Windows, but you can still connect it to mining software running on Linux. Apart from this, it can be difficult for a new user to understand how this solution works, as its interface is not that convenient and intuitive.

What Software to Choose?

Obviously, the final decision completely depends on your needs, but we recommend choosing a universal system that supports GPU rigs and ASICs. By doing this, you will have freedom of action. A similar recommendation can be applied to GPU rigs — if you prefer them, choose a system that works both with Nvidia and AMD cards.
Make your choice wisely, and have profitable Bitcoin mining!

What Are Altcoins?

In 2008 the first cryptocurrency – Bitcoin – was born. From this moment the era of cryptocurrencies began. For a long time, Bitcoin was a unique digital currency. But nowadays there are many other crypto coins, commonly known as altcoins. These coins have their own blockchains, miners, and wallets.
The term itself (Altcoin) is an abbreviation for alternative coin. Bitcoin is traditionally considered the first and the main coin. All others are Bitcoin alternatives are called altcoins. They appeared in the desire of developers to improve the existing Bitcoin code and remove the following limitations and disadvantages of the BTC blockchain network:
Bitcoin has a large volume of blocks, which slowly calculate the necessary operations. The main goal was to create new algorithms in order to speed up the transaction time.
The developers of BTC encrypted the transactions well, but there was still a possibility to track the sender and the recipient. So many new altcoins use additional encryption methods (like proof of work, a combination of hashing algorithms in series and hashing algorithms in parallel and so on).
Bitcoin mining constantly becomes more complicated and each time requires the use of more and more resources to form new blocks in the blockchain. Altcoins use other types of protocols that significantly simplify the mining process and do not require special equipment.
The primary task of Bitcoin is to be a tool for settlement transactions. Altcoins have other extra functions, for example, the creation of a smart contract.
Among the other reasons for the creation of altcoins is the need for technological innovation. Each alternative coin created carries certain know-how that is able to solve specific problems. Also in today's world, cryptocurrency trading has become an integral part of the financial world, so the more altcoins options there are — the more opportunities there are for the investments. Finally, most developers need access to the blockchain technology. First of all, they are interested in a reliable data transmission system and the safe storage of important business information. To access this technology, they need to use altcoins.
The very first altcoin was Namecoin. It was created in 2011 to replace the domain name system of BTC in a decentralized way. Later in 2011 Litecoin come out and suddenly the gateways of the crypto-universe burst out with endless altcoins. Today there are thousands of alternative coins. Pretty impressive, huh?
The main problem of new altcoins is the lack of information about them. Beware of so-called scam coins. These are altcoins designed purely to make a lucre of your investments. Scam coins are dumped as soon as someone puts their money into it. So before investing in altcoins check out their functionality, learn more about the developers and broad market support.
Here the list of most popular and promising altcoins that you should pay attention to:
Ethereum is second by capitalization after BTC. It has also been second by the price rate among all crypto coins for a long time. ETH was created in 2015 as a platform for the development of smart contracts. Nowadays, the major part of ICOs is conducted on this platform.
A fork of Bitcoin, released on August 1, 2017. Unlike Bitcoin, it has a block with a size of 8 Mb.
The cryptocurrency with an additional level of encryption. It is the most popular payment method in the Darknet, which is why it is often criticized, blamed for serving criminal actions.
A platform for payment systems oriented on currency exchange operations. The Ripple protocol, developed by the company of the same name in 2012, is popular in the banking sector.
Altcoin serving the blockchain which is targeted on serving transactions in the framework of the Internet of Things.
To sum up, there are thousands of different altcoins in the crypto world. Some of them succeeded and are now at the peak of popularity. Some projects passed into oblivion. Nowadays altcoins are not just alternative coins to Bitcoin, but the next stage in the evolution of cryptocurrencies. The level of BTC domination is falling down every year and new projects with improved technological solutions and audacious concept will come to the crypto market. Their number will continue to increase and attract more investors. In the near future, we will see new applications for altcoins and new opportunities that the blockchain technology offers.

Bitcoin mining: popular software for managing the processes

The Bitcoin exchange rate faced a significant drop not a long time ago, so a lot of miners think that mining this coin is not as profitable as before. However, Bitcoin is stabilizing, so now is the time to start mining it again. And, definitely, it is better to do this with reliable and efficient software.
There are a lot of operating systems for managing Bitcoin mining, so making a final choice can be a rather complicated task. This guide is here to help you — it describes features, advantages and disadvantages of the most popular software.

Hive OS: an all-in-one solution

Hive OS is a highly secure and stable mining platform based on the Linux distribution of Ubuntu. Besides, you will have no difficulties with its installation, setup and use. However, if you have any questions, you can always get in touch with the support team. The support is provided 24/7, so you will get help very quickly. There is also an extensive knowledge base that you can use.
Hive OS significantly simplifies even large farms’ management. A lot of things can be automated. For instance, automatic control of the fans, execution of commands according to the schedule, etc. Apart from this, switching between pools, wallets or coins takes only a second. The list of miners is updated regularly, just like the list of features — the Hive OS team is constantly working on the system considering the needs of the community. With Hive OS it is also possible to control the workers remotely.
Hive OS allows mining Bitcoin on ASICs and GPU rigs, offers its own pool and custom firmware for ASICs. It is an all-in-one solution that you can use in order to make the management process simpler and increase your profits.

СGMiner: suitable for experienced owners of AMD cards

CGMiner is an open-source miner focused specifically on mining Bitcoin (although some other coins can also be mined here). It supports GPU, ASIC and CPU mining, and is available for the following platforms: Windows, Linux and OS X. While using all the traditional features (for instance, overclocking) you won’t have to pay a dev fee.
However, this miner is not that suitable for inexperienced users — you at least need to have some knowledge of GitHub. Another thing to keep in mind is that CGMiner doesn’t work well with Nvidia cards.

Cudo Miner: a nice option for beginners

Cudo Miner is a simple to use crypto mining platform. Remote management, monitoring and overclocking — these and other standard features are available. Cudo Miner also offers automated mining and auto coin switching. Besides, if necessary, you can create custom templates in order to increase performance of your devices.
On the other side, Cudo Miner doesn’t support ASICs. One more unpleasant thing is that the fees are based on the amount of cryptocurrency mined in the last 30 days, and they are pretty high. For example, for less than 0.005 BTC, the fee is 6.5%.

SimpleMining: the choice of GPU owners

SimpleMining is a mining OS platform supporting all modern Nvidia and AMD GPUs. Using it, you can take bulk actions on multiple devices. Standard features like overclocking and undervolting are available as well. Besides, there are a lot of miner programmes to choose from, but you can still add a custom miner if necessary. But please keep in mind that it is impossible to mix AMD and Nvidia in one rig.

Hashr8: for users who know everything about mining

Hashr8 is an operating system suitable both for ASICs and GPU rigs. The system also supports many pools and miners. You can monitor devices not only in the web interface, but also via the mobile application. Support is provided around the clock. Besides, Hashr8 can be used for free — this option is available to miners using up to 3 devices inclusive. At the same time, there are no other restrictions — free users can use all the functions of the system.
However, despite the above-mentioned benefits, Hashr8 also has some disadvantages. Firstly, you can contact the support team only using the form on the website or by email, so there is no chance for getting help instantly. The website also has no FAQ, so if you run into a problem, you are likely to have to solve it yourself. Secondly, Hashr8 is a rather unstable system, which can affect your income.

Awesome Miner: suitable for centralized mining management

Awesome Miner allows managing and monitoring the mining operations, and supports ASICs and GPU rigs (CPU mining is possible too). Using it, you can perform operations both on individual miners and the groups, and build templates for easier configuration. Note that Awesome Miner can be used for free, but on certain conditions: you can have up to 2 miners, while the list of available features is rather limited.
Awesome Miner runs only on Windows, but you can still connect it to mining software running on Linux. Apart from this, it can be difficult for a new user to understand how this solution works, as its interface is not that convenient and intuitive.

What Are Altcoins?

In 2008 the first cryptocurrency – Bitcoin – was born. From this moment the era of cryptocurrencies began. For a long time, Bitcoin was a unique digital currency. But nowadays there are many other crypto coins, commonly known as altcoins. These coins have their own blockchains, miners, and wallets.
The term itself (Altcoin) is an abbreviation for alternative coin. Bitcoin is traditionally considered the first and the main coin. All others are Bitcoin alternatives are called altcoins. They appeared in the desire of developers to improve the existing Bitcoin code and remove the following limitations and disadvantages of the BTC blockchain network:
Bitcoin has a large volume of blocks, which slowly calculate the necessary operations. The main goal was to create new algorithms in order to speed up the transaction time.
The developers of BTC encrypted the transactions well, but there was still a possibility to track the sender and the recipient. So many new altcoins use additional encryption methods (like proof of work, a combination of hashing algorithms in series and hashing algorithms in parallel and so on).
Bitcoin mining constantly becomes more complicated and each time requires the use of more and more resources to form new blocks in the blockchain. Altcoins use other types of protocols that significantly simplify the mining process and do not require special equipment.
The primary task of Bitcoin is to be a tool for settlement transactions. Altcoins have other extra functions, for example, the creation of a smart contract.
Among the other reasons for the creation of altcoins is the need for technological innovation. Each alternative coin created carries certain know-how that is able to solve specific problems. Also in today's world, cryptocurrency trading has become an integral part of the financial world, so the more altcoins options there are — the more opportunities there are for the investments. Finally, most developers need access to the blockchain technology. First of all, they are interested in a reliable data transmission system and the safe storage of important business information. To access this technology, they need to use altcoins.
The very first altcoin was Namecoin. It was created in 2011 to replace the domain name system of BTC in a decentralized way. Later in 2011 Litecoin come out and suddenly the gateways of the crypto-universe burst out with endless altcoins. Today there are thousands of alternative coins. Pretty impressive, huh?
The main problem of new altcoins is the lack of information about them. Beware of so-called scam coins. These are altcoins designed purely to make a lucre of your investments. Scam coins are dumped as soon as someone puts their money into it. So before investing in altcoins check out their functionality, learn more about the developers and broad market support.
Here the list of most popular and promising altcoins that you should pay attention to:
Ethereum is second by capitalization after BTC. It has also been second by the price rate among all crypto coins for a long time. ETH was created in 2015 as a platform for the development of smart contracts. Nowadays, the major part of ICOs is conducted on this platform.
A fork of Bitcoin, released on August 1, 2017. Unlike Bitcoin, it has a block with a size of 8 Mb.
The cryptocurrency with an additional level of encryption. It is the most popular payment method in the Darknet, which is why it is often criticized, blamed for serving criminal actions.
A platform for payment systems oriented on currency exchange operations. The Ripple protocol, developed by the company of the same name in 2012, is popular in the banking sector.
Altcoin serving the blockchain which is targeted on serving transactions in the framework of the Internet of Things.
To sum up, there are thousands of different altcoins in the crypto world. Some of them succeeded and are now at the peak of popularity. Some projects passed into oblivion. Nowadays altcoins are not just alternative coins to Bitcoin, but the next stage in the evolution of cryptocurrencies. The level of BTC domination is falling down every year and new projects with improved technological solutions and audacious concept will come to the crypto market. Their number will continue to increase and attract more investors. In the near future, we will see new applications for altcoins and new opportunities that the blockchain technology offers.
