Technique for encrypting information into an elusive format.
A cipher is a technique that is used in cryptography to encrypt information into formats that can't be easily figured out. With the help of a cipher, a miner’s information will not be accessed, or infringed by any third party, working to secure information.
For miners to gain access to their information, they must possess a key for them to be able to decipher the encrypted information. The power of the key, which can be in the form of numbers or letters, is not necessarily determined by its type or size but by its security maintenance.
