Litecoin Cash (LCC) is a fork of Litecoin itself utilizing an SHA-256 hashing algorithm. While the initial goal was to focus on bringing back SHA-256, along the way we created "Hive Mining," an agent-based system allowing everyday users to participate in securing and hashing the network to earn real LCC rewards.

Bitcoin mining: how is a block header of 80 bytes processed in SHA-256? Isn't it too big?
The whole process of bitcoin mining was making sense to me until a moment of madness an hour ago, if there is 80 bytes of data to be processed in SHA-256, that's 640 bits of data to be processed in SHA-256. In this 80 bytes we have: 4 bytes (version), previous block hash (32 bytes), merkle root (32 bytes), time (4 bytes), bits (4 bytes), nonce (4 bytes). I thought SHA-256 accepted 512 bits of data, so that's 64 bytes of data. And on top of that, I need to add the length of the data to be processed in the last 64 bits of this 512 bits input but 64 bytes is well over the limit. What am I missing here? Can someone help hear it up for me? Thanks

''' Bitmain has made many major developments in 2018, including the 7nm ASIC chip for SHA-256 mining, the AI division “Sophon”, the BCH fork, as well as its expanding operations in the U.S. In the past year, Bitmain launched a series of new products that may boost the mining efficiency, including a firmware that supports the AsicBoost optimization that available on S9 and BM1387-based models (R4, S9i, S9j, T9, and T9+). In addition, the next generation 7nm ASIC chip, designed for SHA-256 mining is definitely a great milestone for Bitmain in 2018. The ASIC chip was used in Bitmain’s two latest products launched in late November, the Antminer S15 (28 TH/s, 57J/TH) and T15 (23 TH/s, 67J/TH). Bitmain also indicated that “the chip provides significant improvements in terms of performance, power consumption and delivering outstanding performance”.

PSA: For SHA-256 Bitcoin mining, the BW.com pool has been averaging 5+% higher than any of the previous pools since its inception over a week ago.
I just realized it today, but +5% over the term of a contract is pretty substantial! (If it's not a new pool, forgive me. I've never noticed it before, and even if it has been around, it definitely looks like they've now got their sh*t together.)
Mining other SHA-256 coins with Antminer S7 beside Bitcoin?
Hey guys, I hope this is not off topic. I have 2x Antminer S7 which one I usually (but not always) point to Nicehash. After some extensive Googling I get a vague idea that it is possible to mine these SHA-256 based Altcoins with it, but nothing concrete. I'm guessing the answer is "yes", but would like confirmation before I stop mining Bitcoin and give it a try. Also, is there a SHA-256 auto-profit switch pool to direct the Antminers to? TIA

Der Sha-256-Algorithmus basiert auf der Merkle-Damgard-Konstruktionsmethode, nach der der Anfangsindex unmittelbar nach der Änderung in Blöcke und diese wiederum in 16 Wörter unterteilt werden. SHA-256 wird in verschiedenen Teilen des Bitcoin-Netzwerks verwendet: Beim Mining wird SHA-256 als Proof-of-Work-Algorithmus verwendet. SHA-256 is a member of the SHA-2 cryptographic hash functions designed by the NSA. SHA stands for Secure Hash Algorithm. Cryptographic hash functions are mathematical operations run on digital data; by comparing the computed "hash" (the output from execution of the algorithm) to a known and expected hash value, a person can determine the data's integrity.
