why not just produce
to become the winner? I have no practical experience mining, I'm guessing my ignorance lies in the requirements of how a hash is produced. If so, where can I find about those requirements? Thanks.
EDIT: For clarity, I mean this in the sense of what part of the technology requires me to use a hash function? Rather than in the sense of just constructing something that looks like a valid hash.
