Can anyone help with some good explanations on next steps for Bitcoin mining.
Hypothetically let's say I create an algorithm that successfully guesses the code to unlock a Bitcoin blockchain
gives me a result such as: 000000000000000000008d0cff17edbe038f81208fecf9a66be9a2b8321c6ec7
I believe the results of this computational effort is called 'Proof Of Work'
Where do I paste this 'Proof Of Work' on the internet to claim the Bitcoin?
Also can you refer me to any helpful API where I can check my 'Proof Of Work' against already claimed 'Proof Of Work'
A basic video on how I might create such an algorithm can be found here https://youtu.be/ZhnJ1bkIWWk unfortunately it doesn't mention next step.
I am sorry if this seems like a really basic question, after much googling I am still confused.
I would like to try and make edits to such an algorithm and see if I can unlock a blockchain and claim bitcoin reward. I am not asking how to write an algorithm to unlock bitcoin, I would like an explanation of what I do with the result of the algorithm i.e. how do you cash in that lottery ticket?
Any advice appreciated.
