Proof of Work (PoW) is a blockchain protocol in which the creator of the next block is asked to do some work both difficult (processing time consuming) to produce but easy to verify. Producing a proof of work can be a random process with low probability so that a lot of trial and error is required on average before a valid proof of work is generated.
