Sorry I have tried to study the yellow paper, but it sounds quite tough to me.. I know the mixhash is a formation of nonce, but I want to know what exactly "forms" the mixhash(e.g. header + nonce ?) and what's the algorithm and calculation?

  • Thanks, I have found this answer before but I want to know the exact "function" to calculate the mixhash and how to generate it with, say, header + nonce, etc. – Rilakstitch Dec 17 '16 at 15:33
  • The first google result gives the full specification as well as python code for this – Tjaden Hess Dec 20 '16 at 1:52

    @TjadenHess and what if this question will be the first google result some day? :-) The idea is to collect all knowledge in one place, and this could be stack exchange in the future. – Afr Dec 20 '16 at 10:46
  • This answer is now the first google result... and still now answer. 😢 – Micah Zoltu Apr 3 '20 at 10:42
