Really the network has only done about 73.6 bits of work so far, our lowest is lucky. Smiley

Really the network has only done about 73.6 bits of work so far, our lowest is lucky. Smiley

Statistically, as the block hashes (I assume) form some kind of distribution, I would say in laymans terms, that we are likely within the 73.6 bits of work done so far to have some outliers or 'lucky' results.

My question would therefore be, would the amount of 'luck' required for our lowest yet fall outside the expected distribuition (and therefore be truely 'lucky') or is this "expected luck"?

If you don't have the private key for "your" bitcoins then you have no bitcoins.
There are a million bits in a bitcoin: 1 ฿ = 1,000,000 ƀ

Not too much has happened, I was waiting to get one with apparent work > 2^80 to update again.

Best right now is 0x000000000000000000049bb3b6b9c135f66536e066704369905043df809c2441 ... or about 2^77.79, the cumulative block measured work level on the network is at 2^79.3 so we're behind.

Ok, I scan the blockchain in python and calculated the achieved difficulty for each block.

If anyone is interested I can put the data here.

Interesting thing is that the block 0 (genesis block) have achieved difficulty equal to 2536.

00000000000000000000b7de9e5c19e52be073156924b7cf235efb27ae8a202a

math.log((2**256)/0x00000000000000000000b7de9e5c19e52be073156924b7cf235efb27ae8a202a,2) = 80.47746080768307

"Apparent difficulty" of 391,895,084,984,304.

And pretty much just on track with the regular block measured work: UpdateTip: new best=00000000000000000000b7de9e5c19e52be073156924b7cf235efb27ae8a202a  height=313338  log2_work=79.978295  tx=43580048  date=2014-07-31 13:29:05 progress=0.999999

This is the first block solution we've found which is a >80 bit partial preimage of 0.

We should start "Guinness facts for Bitcoin" project with an answers to all popular (and even dumb) questions

1. What is the lowest block hash seen?
2. What is the maximum tx (in bytes, in funds, in fees)
3. What is the longest scriptPub and scriptSig?
4. How many zeros does your publicKey have in hex representation?
5. The first and last (alphabet order) address (need signature verifying)
6. Maximum transactions count in block
... etc

Oh, nice!

May I ask how you are calculating/estimating the total work done by the network?

The smallest block hash yet found is an estimate of the total work done by the network.  Also, the sum of the difficulties (well *2^32) on the blocks so far is an estimate, which is the one returned in the bitcoin core logs or in the getblockchaininfo rpc.

I see, thanks.

Interestingly, it seems to me that we should be "ahead" in this sense about 2/3 of the time.  I believe this follows from the fact that given some amount of work done, n say (number of hashes), the probability that we are behind at that point is simply (1 - 1/n)^n which converges to exp(-1) as n tends to infinity.

Just to poke at some of David Rabahy's trivia questions:

Is a hash of *all* 0s possible?
Current block with the most number of 0's (anywhere, not just leading) in the hash:

height   hash                                                               note
326799   000000000000000003fec4b5cd08090ab80010345952ab08048e088a00c2b09b   29/64* zeros

(* see earlier discussion on whether all zeros is even theoretically possible )

One wonders when a trailing triple 0 appears.
http://btc.blockr.io/block/info/9521 (actually four trailing zeros - other blocks with four trailing: 83373, 293374, 332802)
http://btc.blockr.io/block/info/10169 (actual triple)
( there's none with 5 trailing zeros )

Which hash has the most trailing 0s?
Tie between the above four listed Smiley

Why not a leading sequence of 3.1415926535...?
Can't have it leading, of course, but here's one with 314159 in it, at least (only one, thus also no longer sequence yet):

height   hash
