Overview

The PoW Miner helps get the next block added to the VeriBlock blockchain. It will connect to a local instance of NodeCore, using UCP on port 8501.

You can run the PoW Miner as an individual, or connect to a pool (See: HowTo_run_and_connect_to_PoW_Miner_pool)

Note that PoW Mining is separate from Proof-of-Proof (PoP) Mining. Both reward VBK tokens, but are different operations. (See: HowTo_run_PoP_Miner, PoW_vs_PoP_Mining)
