Introduction To Burstcoin

Burstcoin's mining method uses a POC (Pool of capacity), which takes up the hard disk space of the miner and stores the pre-generated "hash functions" in the hard disk. In Burstcoin mining, it is not the user's data that is stored by the miner, the "hash functions" on the hard drive are only used to upload answers (i.e. hash functions) to the network when mining, thus grabbing new blocks.

Each Burstcoin miner has to download the answers to the hard disk in advance, an action known as a "Plot disk", and the file stored on the hard disk is known as a "Plot file", which is made up of a The "plot file" is made up of "nonce".

The "Plot disk" takes a long time and the speed of the process depends on the CPU (processor) performance, GPU (graphics card) power, RAM (memory) size and HDD (hard disk) capacity of the miner, but the "Plot disk" is a one-time job that does not need to be repeated later. It is important to understand that the speed of the "Plot disk" will not affect your future mining revenue. Therefore, I think it is not worthwhile to buy a CPU and RAM with superb performance, such as an i7 and 32 GB RAM, just for the sake of a very fast "Plot disk" speed. A reader also told me that he chose to use his HDD to mine Burstcoin on a temporary basis, just to prepare for his next deployment, which makes it even more important to keep your goals in mind.

Having said that, after completing the "Plot disk" and actually coming to the Burstcoin mining process, I saw a good example on the internet, which can be roughly described as follows
Burstcoin mining is like an open book exam, where the examiner who administers the Burstcoin mining exam issues a question every 4 minutes (4 minutes for the block to come out), and when the question is issued, the candidate (miner) starts searching through the library of answers (nonce in the Plot file) that he/she has brought into the exam room, and submits the answer that he/she thinks is the most correct to the examiner. As you can see, the percentage of answers submitted by candidates depends directly on the size of the answer bank (the capacity of the hard drive), and the more answers you have, the better your chances of getting the closest answer. It is also important that the time between finding an answer and running it out to the examiner is a matter of speed. In addition, in Burstcoin mining, you will often hear the term "Dead Line", which is the time it takes for a candidate to successfully answer a question after the examiner has given it to them.

Burstcoin is one of the first cryptocurrencies to use hard drive mining, breaking away from traditional CPU, GPU or ASIC mining and using hard drive capacity to keep the blockchain running, reducing the amount of power consumed during mining. However, from the information available on the internet, I have not seen any actual use of Burstcoin yet, so it is clear that most of the miners are dedicated believers or are preparing for another cryptocurrency that uses hard disk mining - File coin.
