Merge’s blockchain upgrade introduces two new and distinctive Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) to add to our feature set. These RPCs are unique to and copyrighted by Merge, bringing new capabilities and advantages to coins whose consensus strategy are based on Proof of Stake (POS).
- getstakingset – This command features prominently for Merge as it is very consequential when it comes to staking your Merge coins. getstakingset essentially outputs the amount of available MERGE remaining in your wallet after an executed transaction, also commonly known as UTXO, and utilizes it in creating encryptions required to solve blockchain computations known as hashes, or proof hash. Proof hash is the bread and butter of a blockchain, and it corresponds to the hash of an obfuscation sum that fluctuates depending on the stake modifier, the amount of unspent output and the current timestamp.
In simpler terms, getstakingset is your pair of aces when it comes to winning the rewards for each processed block on Merge’s blockchain, listing you all your “lottery tickets”.
- getbestproofhash – Blockchain enthusiasts will be familiar with the Bitcoin’s RPC getbestblockhash; and Merge’s RPC getbestproofhash is very similar in many ways. With this RPC, your Merge wallet submits to the network its best proof hash (“lottery tickets”), which is essentially your best possibility of generating rewards, for each processed block on Merge’s blockchain.
getbestproofhash provides confirmation that your Merge wallet submits its best proof hash to win the block and earn the corresponding rewards.
You can access these RPCs at your own convenience through the following links:
Merge is setting the pace with these groundbreaking innovations, essentially cementing ourselves as the pioneers for the future of blockchain technology. These RPC commands are copyrighted by Merge under the MIT Software License and have already been released to the blockchain community.
