TERA

TERAHASH mining algorithm # Version 0.3 September 2018 Introduction The purpose of this algorithm is to equalize the people who are mining on a CPU and the people who are mining on a GPU. To achieve this, we suggest to use memory, but unlike other similar algorithms (such as Ethash) in our algorithm, memory does not slow down the GPU, but accelerates a CPU. This can be done by using not an integer nonce when selecting a hash, but a certain value that is time – consuming to calculate-for example, calculated by the sha3 algorithm and allowing this value to be used for enumeration in a wide range of block hash calculations. ...
