I am trying to solve a merkle root from a previously mined block.
Specifically this block... https://www.blockchain.com/en/btc/block/000000000003ba27aa200b1cecaad478d2b00432346c3f1f3986da1afd33e506
The blogpost above goes through the process of converting the transaction IDs to little endian. To solve the merkle root.
Question: When mining new blocks using getblocktemplate
According to the bitcoin developer documentation, transaction hashes are given in little endian already.
transactions "hash" : "xxxx", (string) hash encoded in little-endian hexadecimal (including witness data)
So... do I skip that step ?
