var validblock = new Block(Buffer.from(validblockRlp, 'hex'))

ethash.verifyPOW(validblock, function (result) {
  console.log(result)
})
BROWSER
Yep, you can browserify it.
API

new Ethash([cacheDB])

Creates a new instance of Ethash.
Parameters
  • cacheDB - an instance of a levelup db which is used to store the cache(s)

ethash.verifyPOW(block, cb)

Verifies the POW on a block and its uncles
Parameters
  • block - the block to verify
  • cb - the callback which is given a Boolean determining the validaty of the block

ethash.mkcache(cacheSize, seed)

Creates a cache. NOTE: this is automatically done for in - ethash.verifyPOW(block, cb) so you do not need to use this function if you are just validating blocks
Parameters
  • cachSize - the size of the cach
  • seed - the seed as a Buffer

ethash.run(val, nonce, fullsize)

Runs ethash on a give val/nonce pair. NOTE: you need to run ethash.mkcache(cacheSize, seed) first before using this function.
Parameters
  • val - value to run ethash on e.g. the header hash
  • nonce - the nonce used for this hash attempt
  • fullsize - the fullsize of the cache.

Returns
An Object containing:
  • hash - the hash of the value
  • mix - the mis result
