Proof of Work

Proof of Work (PoW)

Proof-of-Work, or PoW, is the original consensus algorithm in the Bitcoin blockchain network. In Blockchain, this algorithm is used to confirm transactions and produce new blocks to the chain. With PoW, miners compete against each other to complete transactions on the network and get rewarded. -Cointelegraph
