Hi all. Is anyone aware of when mining software chooses to add transactions from the mempool into the merle tree of the block it is currently hashing and trying to find the winning nonce for? Is it the case that a single snapshot of the mempool is taken (with some selection filters applied), built into a tree and then submitted to the ASICs for hashing? Or is the merkle tree updated regularly during the round in order to include higher priority transactions? Doing this changes the header so would probably result in resetting the nonce. Edit: Actually, same question for the block time field in the header... at what point does mining software set this? Only once at the beginning of the round, or does it update it continually with each iteration (acting like a mining nonce)? Bitcoin wiki says this vague line: "The block is also occasionally updated as you are working on it." https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Block_hashing_algorithm I'm interested to know what typical practice is here. I'd guess cgminer and equivalents have customisable and default params which set some threshold for decision making. If new tx priority is below threshold then don't update the header, if it is over the threshold then its worth the i/o(?) cost to switch out the header. Edit: https://youtu.be/L8TQQxARdxo This is a full node listening for new transactions and blocks. The new transactions list (mempool) continually grows, a few tx per second, and then mostly clears on the arrival of a new block. This implies that miners, who receive a similar mempool to this node, are updating their block header with new transactions all the time thought out the round.
"How are they created? New coins are generated, or “mined”, by a network node each time it solves a specific and difficult mathematical problem. In technical terms, mining involves calculating the hash of a block header. This header includes a reference to the previous block, a hash of a set of transactions and a unique 32-bit value called a “nonce”. Bitcoin blocks are generated every 10 minutes, on average, in a process that will continue until 21 million bitcoins are created, which is expected to occur around 2140. At this time, Bitcoins will continue to be traded, but will no longer be mined."
Am I the only one who still to this day has difficulty understanding this? Am I stupposed to brush this over as one of the things in life on not trying so hard to understand it? I love the concept of bitcoins but I guess I just feel more comfortable understanding it more as I know how many things nowadays are so manipulated. Imagine for a second Bitcoin was covertly made by Tavistock, Cato institute, IMF... I feel someone paid to have BTC developed and then use it to shock-test the public and observe and report for new legislation
Is Antminer S9 hardware coming offline? The disappearance of an unusual pattern in the Bitcoin nonce value distribution may suggest so. Regardless, reports have surfaced that mining farms are upgrading to the latest generation hardware.
Can’t the previous hash from the lowest nonce be used to get a hash that is lower than the target to reach the block reward to start? If this is possible, wouldn’t the “number” to solve the nonce keep decreasing each time until eventually we are left with lowest nonce possible- therefore it could keep being used because that lowest nonce would always be below the target?
The "nonce" in a bitcoin block is a 32-bit (4-byte) field whose value is adjusted by miners so that the hash of the block will be less than or equal to the current target of the network. The rest of the fields may not be changed, as they have a defined meaning. Any change to the block data (such as the nonce) will make the block hash completely different. Since it is believed infeasible to ... Nonce. A number used to help with mining. The nonce is a field in the block header.. I call it “the mining field”. Nonce is an abbreviation of number used once. cryptography.wikia.com. What’s it used for? Miners adjust the nonce when they’re trying to get the hash of their block headers below the target. (i.e. Get a valid Block Hash for their candidate block.) Bitcoin Nonce is a 4-byte (32-bit) field in the input (block’s header, to be explained later…) of the SHA-256 function that is used to produce Bitcoin Hashes.The nonce needs to be set in such a way that its hashed output should have a certain number of leading zeros and to achieve these miners keep playing with this 4-byte field. Bitcoin Nonce Explained. A Bitcoin nonce is an arbitrary number that is used in Bitcoin’s proof of work consensus algorithm. The nonce can be found as a 4-byte field in a block header, and sees its value adjusted by miners so that the hash of the block will be less than or equal to the current target hash value set by the network. Nonce: A nonce ("number only used once") is a number added to a hashed block that, when rehashed, meets the difficulty level restrictions. The nonce is the number that blockchain miners are ...
