The power of blockchain

Blockchains are used to power all major cryptocurrencies in the world today – so what are they?
Himari Energy founder Peter Gardiner describes how the blockchain process underpins crypto.
“Basically, a blockchain is a distributed ledger where each record of the ledger includes a timestamp, a payload, and a link to the previous record in the ledger. These records are called blocks and once created and verified these blocks are appended to the blockchain,” Peter said.
“This process underpins cryptocurrencies which use the payload of the block to record new currency transactions.”
“Miners bundle crypto transactions together into a block and then begin the process of finding the proof-of-work code required to complete a valid block.”
“Creating a valid block on cryptocurrency blockchains is made intentionally difficult to keep block production at a steady rate, and to ensure attackers can’t take over the network using superior computing power.”
“When a miner successfully creates a block which is accepted by others on the network they are able to collect a reward for the new block as well as all fees offered as incentives by the transactions within the block,” he said.

“Himari is on a mission to promote renewable energy through the power of the blockchain, supporting Australia and the world to meet reduced emissions targets, all while earning a profitable and ethical return for our clients through crypto mining.”
