Algorithm used for proof of work.

Associated Types

type Difficulty: TotalDifficulty + Default + Encode + Decode + Ord + Clone + Copy

Difficulty for the algorithm.

Required methods

fn difficulty(&self, parent: B::Hash) -> Result<Self::Difficulty, Error<B>>

Get the next block's difficulty.

This function will be called twice during the import process, so the implementation should be properly cached.

fn verify(
    &self,
    parent: &BlockId<B>,
    pre_hash: &B::Hash,
    pre_digest: Option<&[u8]>,
    seal: &Seal,
    difficulty: Self::Difficulty
) -> Result<bool, Error<B>>

Verify that the difficulty is valid against given seal.

Provided methods

fn preliminary_verify(
    &self,
    _pre_hash: &B::Hash,
    _seal: &Seal
) -> Result<Option<bool>, Error<B>>

Verify that the seal is valid against given pre hash when parent block is not yet imported.

None means that preliminary verify is not available for this algorithm.

fn break_tie(&self, _own_seal: &Seal, _new_seal: &Seal) -> bool

Break a fork choice tie.

By default this chooses the earliest block seen. Using uniform tie breaking algorithms will help to protect against selfish mining.

Returns if the new seal should be considered best block.
