Mine a bitcoin

From Rosetta Code
Mine a bitcoin is a draft programming task. It is not yet considered ready to be promoted as a complete task, for reasons that should be found in its talk page.

Mine a bitcoin to a given wallet address. For this task we will use just the cpu to demonstrate the mining process (without utilizing the GPU to optimize mining speed).

Or the purpose of this demonstation we can use a dummy wallet address 1234567890abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxy

(See also: Mine a bitcoin using GPU optimization).
