With this user interface for Ethereum you an easily interact with smart contracts. Simply copy the ABI and the contract address into the respective fields, click “read ABI” and start interacting. You need a Ethereum connection like MetaMask.
In this article we focus on the difference between storage, memory, and stack in Ethereum. We will also give a Solidity code sample and calculation examples.
This calculator converts the bit value into the target for the Bitcoin blockchain.
An extensive explanation of the Bitcoin difficulty and how target, difficulty and bits are related can be found in this article: Bitcoin difficulty and Target.
If you look for the Ethereum mining difficulty explanation, you find it here.
Block Reward Definition
The block reward serves as a remuneration of the miner or block creator for its work. It is therefore part of the incentive structure to keep the network safe.
Explanation: Bitcoin Mining is the process of creating new coins while validating transactions and creating blocks. This is usually done by a proof of work (PoW) algorithm. But there are also other algorithms like proof of stake (PoS), delegated proof of Stake, proof of capacity (PoC), proof of elapsed time (PoET), etc.
Definition: The Bitcoin proof of work is the underlying consensus algorithm for the bitcoin blockchain network. It aims to find a combination of predefined inputs which result in a hash value lower than a certain target threshold.
Definition: A hash function is a function which takes a value of arbitrary length as input (preimage) and calculates an output (digest) of fixed length.
In this post we explain what hash functions are and how they work.
This article gives a comprehensive overview about the basics of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies in a highlevel way. It offers links to some reports and surveys regarding the adoption of blockchain and its outlook for the future.
During this report several use cases are touched and it is highlighted that many US authorities have experimented with blockchain and dlt so far.
Beside the description of use cases and adoptions the report provides policy recommendations like defined standards and interoperability, standardized market places as well as “sand boxes” for testing this new technology.
