So I get that Ethereum POW is different from Bitcoins POW, I dont get the calculation of nonce from the pseudo random nodes from the data set to serve as POW, can somebody elaborate on this ?

  • Hi there. When you say you don't understand the calculation of the nonce, do you actually mean the generation of the dataset? (As far as I was aware, the nonce is first randomly generated, and then sequentially incremented.) Are you referring to a particular source you've read? Commented Oct 27, 2017 at 15:24
  • Hi, Thanks for the reply, Yeah basically didnt get the idea behind generation of seed leading to cache and to dataset. I was referring to Ethereum documentation here in particular the Dagger Hashimoto
