I need some data for a little research project. I have a software that is able to find relationships between different sets of data and then find the one equation that most perfectly describes the data relations. I´d like to see what happens if I run bitcoin block solutions and their difficulty thru the software. Maybe the software comes to an intresting result that might be used for faster bitcoin creation?

I would need: sets of difficulty and the resulting blocks. I think about 1000 samples should be enough for the start. How could I get that data?

You should start with more research about how bitcoin works.

After that, if you are still interested in the data, google "bitcoin block explorer".

You can't significantly increase the speed without breaking SHA-256. SHA-256 is widely considered to be the most secure 256-bit cryptographic hash function. It was developed by the US government, and it's used by banks and governments around the world. Do you think no one has ever tried breaking it with whatever method you're using?
