What is POW versus POS in crypto?

POW POW stands for Proof of Work, which is a consensus mechanism used in the mining process of many cryptocurrencies. It is designed to prevent the network from being flooded with spam or malicious transactions, and to create new blocks and add them to the blockchain in a secure and decentralized manner. In POW, miners […]


How a block is found in crypto mining

Finding a block in cryptocurrency mining refers to the process of solving a cryptographic puzzle and adding a new block to the blockchain. This process is performed by miners and is essential for maintaining the security and stability of the blockchain. Here is a general overview of how a block is found in cryptocurrency mining: […]

Raspberry Pi ohne Monitor und Tastatur für AtomMiner AM01 einrichten

Um den Strombedarf für Ihr Mining-System (Mining-Rig) zu minimieren, empfehlen wir dringend ein Raspberry Pi oder eine ähnliche Computerplatine zu verwenden. Diese sind weit verbreitet, kostengünstig, klein und energieeffizient. Standardmäßig wird das offizielle Betriebssystem des Raspberry Pi, Raspbian, mit deaktiviertem Fernzugriff installiert. Daher benötigt man mindestens einen Monitor und eine Tastatur um es zum ersten […]
