Please write a clear, concise description of your topic here.You will likely reference your introduction from somewhere else. Please use the following syntax at the end of each of your ideas. '''IT IS CRITICAL YOU ATTRIBUTE''' others work. Your introduction should be factual. No more than 3 or 4 sentences, please. Because you are not an expert in your topic, I expect you to triangulate your information. LOTS OF LINK TO OTHER RESOURCES PLEASE! If you do not use a section, please delete it. Your finished page should only have information which explains your topic.

== How does it work or a deeper look ==
 
 
 
* If you are discussing a THING YOU CAN TOUCH, you must explain how it works, and the parts it is made of. Google around for an "exploded technical diagram" of your thing, [http://cdiok.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/MRI-Technology.jpg maybe like this example of an MRI]  It is likely you will reference outside links. Please attribute your work.
 
* If you are discussing a PROCESS OR ABSTRACT CONCEPT (like [[fuzzy logic]]) you must deeply explain how it works.

Pictures and diagrams go a LONG way to helping someone understand a topic. Especially if your topic is a little abstract or complex. Using a picture or diagram is a two part process:

Advanced programming[1]

Proof-of-Work, or PoW, is the original consensus algorithm in a Blockchain network. In Blockchain, this algorithm is used to confirm transactions and produce new blocks to the chain. With PoW, miners compete against each other to complete transactions on the network and get rewarded.[2]
