Though it doesn’t need you to have any technical knowledge to mine the Giracoin, it advertises to be a totally different technology than other cryptocurrencies Giracoin claims to have its technical foundation based on a real block-chain, which they call a ‘Timestamp Server’. The Timestamp server is more of a regular blockchain that works by taking a hash of a block of items to be timestamped (presence recorded) and publishing the hash in chain. Each timestamp includes the previous timestamp in its hash, forming a chain, with each additional timestamp reinforcing the ones before it.

To make it securer and verify the transactions, Giracoin Timestamp  applies the POW (proof- of-work) by adding a nonce (temp info) in the block until a value is found that gives the block‘s hash the required zero bits (confirmation). Once the CPU satisfies the proof-of-work, the block cannot be modified without redoing the entire work.

To understand the complete model of the working, Giracoin has provided with a complete step-by-step network formation below:

1 New transactions are broadcast to all nodes.

2 Each node collects new transactions into a block.

3 Each node works on finding a difficult proof-of-work for its block.

4 When a node finds a proof-of-work, it broadcasts the block to all nodes.

5 Nodes accept the block only if all transactions in it are valid and not already spent.

6 Nodes express their acceptance of the block by working on creating the next block in the chain, using the hash of the accepted block as the previous hash.
