BlockChain - Transaction Data
a growing list of records called blocks, which are linked using cryptography has of the previous block, a timestamp and transaction data (generally represented as a merkle tree root hash.)
Block Reward
The block reward simply refers to the new coins distributed by the network to miners for each successfully solved block. Every 210,000 block are mined or confirmed, by the system halvening will occur.
Hashing Power
A hash is the output of a hash function. Hash rate is the speed at which a computer is completing an operation in the cryptocurrency’s code. Therefore, the amount of hashes are measured in hashes per second. A higher hashrate increases a miner’s opportunity of finding the next block and receiving the block reward.
The luck of a mining pool is probabilistic in nature. Imagine that each miner is given a lottery ticket for a certain amount of hashing power they provide. If you were to provide 1 TH/s of hashing power and the overall hashing power in the network is 10 TH/s then you would receive 1 of 10 total lottery tickets. The probability of you winning the lottery (finding the block reward) would be 10%. So for every 10 blocks found you should statistically find 1 of them. Now imagine that you found 2 out of the 10 blocks, this means that you found a block earlier than you statistically should have on average. You are lucky! Now imagine you found 0 out of 10. This would make you unlucky. Over the long run statistically you should receive on average 1 out of 10 (or 10%) of blocks, but there is short term variance.
Mining Pool
All in all, mining is attempting to unlock each block to get the reward that is in it; the more attempts (hashes) you can perform per second the higher the chances you have to get the reward (i.e. the more lottery tickets you have the higher your chance of winning the lottery). Because miners by themselves typically don’t have enough hashing power to consistently find blocks they join a pool that pools everyone’s hash power and combines it to hash blocks. With more hashing power it is easier to find blocks. Then, the reward is split among the miners based on the amount of work they contributed and a small fee is given to the pool operator.
