I am tackling programming the Arduino for the first time. I have purchased the UNO R3. I have also purchased the latest copy of Arduino for Dummies. I am not quite finished with the book. Call me lazy if you must. I am sure there are some reading this who might.

I am wanting to create a Bitcoin miner. I have searched the web high and low for the Bitcoin elliptical and have found it located Secp256k1 - Bitcoin Wiki.

I think if I take out my calculator and convert the hexadecimal to octal, it might work a little better for my Arduino to read. However, I am still getting tripped up on the declaration of the F of P. By this, I mean am I supposed to declare this as an int, an long word, etc.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you,

I strongly doubt that the Uno will have enough power, or RAM, to be an effective (or even possible) Bitcoin miner.
