Hello friends,

I recently started dealing with bitcoins and mining. I think I have some good ideas for a miner and I would like to write my own.

Anyway: I can't find a real good explanation/documentation about mining. I'm searching for a simple explanation like:

1. Recieve THIS
2. Find a way to compute THIS
3. Return the result in THIS way



I hope you can help me. Thanks in advance.

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Getwork this is what you want, but to be honest don't reinvent the wheel their are a lot of different miners out their and they do it very well, so i would say your wasting your time, unless your some kind of genius who knows how to optimize to get 1 T/Hash on a CPU don't even try.

[urlhttps://github.com/m0mchil/poclbm]poclbm[/url] is a good opencl miner, open source and written in Python which is fairly easy to understand. Perusing its source will probably teach you much more than a thread here will.

If you wonder about something you should do as @enmaku said and see how other miners have done it.

I'm curious to know how you'll stand out from the other open source miners.

I would go with the getwork way.
Upside, a lot less protocol handling so faster result.
Downside, for solo mining you need to setup other software for your own pool.

Oh, and if you change to something other like litecoin, you just have to update the sha256(sha256(work)) to scrypt(work).
You don't have to think about difficulty of little protocol changes.

If everyone were to listen to this we wouldn't get anywhere... One mans wasted time is another mans treasure.
