Transaction fees pay for two completely different things which should not be confused. One is the marginal cost of verifying, propagating and storing the transaction; the other is the amortized cost of hashing to secure the network. Addressing the fi
Before we start, if you’re new to Bitcoin mining and don’t know what it is watch this short and simple explanation: “Is Bitcoin Mining Profitable in 2017?“The short answer would be “It depends on how much you’re willing to spend”. Each person asking
If the current difficulty is D, then the target hash (the value below which block hashes must go) is: 0x00000000FFFF0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 / D (by definition of difficulty, which is a fraction of the maximum target), or
