Let's assume, the hash 00000000000000000024c0bdbec66a889778c00bc69be0a96cbbd98b75c3ce09 of block #499644 is smaller than 0000000000000000002d429f39afec70c938e888c3417d690bbc85e83529991c of block #499645.

They both have 18 Zeros, then 2=2, but then 4<d.

Which is the smallest hash that has ever been hashed during cryptomining? How many zeros? Which block?


The 12 lowest block hashes in Bitcoin, at the time of writing (Dec 16 2017):

  • I'd be interested to know how you generated this list, and why you decided to post the lowest 12. – Adam Millerchip Dec 17 '17 at 4:09

    I run bitcoin.sipa.be and the website data is generated from a text file with a list of all blocks with hash and height. I sorted the file based on hash and posted the top 12, to give an idea of how common the top number of zeroes is. – Pieter Wuille Dec 17 '17 at 5:59
