This question already has an answer here:
- Calculate hash of block header 1 answer
I have been doing a lot of research about bitcoin and blockchain. A lot of informacion across the Internet can be found where many people explains the basics of bitcoin an it´s underlaying technology, but I have a question that I can´t quite find the answer and beg for this community help
If one searchs in Google Almighty one can track down bitcoin to the first block issued which is told to have the hash:
on Blockchain.info the transaction info made is available:
And I even found a blog where the original block data containing the now famous ¨The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of the second bailout for banks¨ is given
But, to which data I have to apply SHA256 in order to get the given hash?
Many people say that is to block header copossed by Version - Previous block hash - Merkle Root - Timestamp - Difficulty Target - Nonce in the block structure, but another question arises for me:
When a pool is mining, does it receives the block info and its hash? From who receives that data?
Hope you can help me, any readings/books/videos/resources you can recommend will be appreciated or threads where this question has already been answered!
Thanks in advance!
