I'm trying to understand how we mine...and have a few high level questions.
1.) Are we iterating through blocks to find in the DAG, or as we find/mine a 'nugget' it is assigned a block # in the sequence.
2.) If we are iterating through blocks, at the beginning of the iteration are we all racing to solve the same block #
I read a little about the DAG and how the 'work' is contained there and resets after 30k but...
In other words is this a lottery where every hash is a ticket increasing your chance to win the draw or is it a race?
Is it better to have the client on a separate machine and the GPU workers on another?
On a side note, I gave up on Ubuntu 15.10 and I'm really frustrated...will give it another try in the future Windows was really easy.
