Demystifying Crypto-Mining: Analysis and Optimizations of Memory-Hard PoW Algorithms

Runchao Han, Nikos Foutris, Christos Kotselidis
2019 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Performance Analysis of Systems and Software (ISPASS)  
In this paper, we perform an in-depth performance analysis and characterization of the most common memory-hard PoW algorithms running on NVIDIA GPUs.  ...  Motivated by our experimental findings, we apply a series of optimizations on Ethash algorithm, the consensus protocol of the Ethereum blockchain.  ...  This work is partially supported by the EU Horizon 2020 E2Data 780245, ACTiCLOUD 732366, and EuroEXA 754337 grants.  ...
