Abstract [en]

Burstcoin is a cryptocurrency which differ from the well-known Bitcoin, among several integral component which encompass any cryptocurrency, the mining process is one which differ greatly between the two. This difference is basically that the Bitcoin mining process require constant computational calculation, while Burstcoin mining requires a file known as plot file to be read at intervals. As with many altcoins, Burstcoin have very little analysis surrounding it and as such the efficiency of the mining process in how it is usually configured can be questioned. Therefore, the thesis will focus on factors which might affect performance regarding how efficiently the plot file can be read. To begin with, knowledge about which timespans are interesting for Burstcoin mining will be investigated, more precisely the block forge times for the Burstcoin blockchain will be determined to ascertain if any specific timeframes are important regarding how fast a plot file should be processed. Following, three tests will be made focusing on the performance aspect. The first test focus on whether the file system cluster size matters in how fast a plot file is processed and determines if the processor is bottlenecking the processing speed of the plot file. Secondly, it is investigated if the size of the hard drive where a plot file is located play any role in how fast it is processed. The third test compares how fast a plot file is being read when the hard drive which houses the file operates at the SATA 2 standard compared to the SATA 3 one
