I am still very new to Cryptocurrency but I do know a thing or two about coding. I’m working on a standalone CPU miner. I am using str4d’s standalone miner as reference: GitHub - str4d/zcash at standalone-miner.
##Q: When a Miner finds a Proof of Work, what is required to turn that into Zcash?
From what I understand, when a Proof of Work is found it is a valid solution to the current block and therefore if submitted to the blockchain before anyone else submits a valid solution, the block reward is received.
So for example, the following output implies that a Proof of Work has been found and the block reward has been earned:
Is that correct, or am I off?
Thanks in advance to anyone able to explain this to me.
Sorry, OP is a noob.
