 Secure hashing algorithm 256
 it takes so long it doesn’t matter and to find a random input that matches the output is possible but highly unlikely.
 SHA256
 Because nobody have the amount of computational power (and time) needed to check by brute force the insane number of possibilities.
 SHA 256
 Its an equation very easy to calculate in one direction, so for example from private key to public key, but nearly impossible in the other direction with the computation power at hand to man at the moment .
 SHA 256: Produces a 256bit hash.
 The bruteforce method basically means that you have to pick up a random input, hash it and then compare the output with the target hash and repeat until you find a match. While it is possible to break preimage resistance via the brute force method, it takes so long so it is not important anymore.
 SHA256
 because in order to find a match, it would take nearimpossible amount of resources and time

What is the hashing algorithm called used in Bitcoin?
The hashing algorithm is called SHA256 
Why is this hashing algorithm really hard (almost impossible) to bruteforce?
It is almost impossible to crack because the hashing function is only one way, and there are too many possible inputs. Bruteforce attack would require far too much time than is practical.
 SHA256
 The hash is so complex (2^256 unique possible hashes) that the amount of time/effort required to match it with a random hash generation is insanely unlikely.
1)SHA 256
2)There are too many possibilities, it will take very long time to brute force them.
 SHA256
 Because it is very time consuming and inefficient because there is a massive number of possibilities which need to be run before arriving at the correct one.
the algorithm used in bitcoin is called secure hashing algorithm 256
sha 256 is almost impossible to brute force is cause the data is so large it will take multiple life times to guess it correctly
1 What is the hashing algorithm called used in Bitcoin?
SHA256 (Secure Hashing Algorithm 256)
2 Why is this hashing algorithm really hard (almost impossible) to bruteforce?
brute force essentially means guessing and the number permutations are astronomical; lottery anyone…?

SHA256

It will take a lifetime to solve the function

What is the hashing algorithm called used in Bitcoin?
SHA256 
Why is this hashing algorithm really hard (almost impossible) to bruteforce?
On average you’d have to try 2^255 times ((2^256)/2) to find the right input.
It is called SHA256
The hash is a fixed length regardless of the length of the text being hashed, and there are 2^256 different hash results. So with pure brute force guessing, it would take even the most powerful computer in 2020, potentially too long an average time to find the answer especially if the hacker did not know anything about the length or format of the text being hashed. Typically centuries, millenia or longer.
 SHA256 algorythm
 to find the input from the output is practically impossible… even with huge computational power
1. What is the hashing algorithm called used in Bitcoin?
SHA256 (Secure Hashing Algorithm 256)
2. Why is this hashing algorithm really hard (almost impossible) to bruteforce?
Mathematically, with the SHA 256 algorithm, the number of possible combinations is astronomical. Guessing the input by the output of the hash function(use bruteforce) is not impossible but extremely infeasible.
So we can assume that it is a secure system
 SHA  256
 The probability of bruteforce being succesfull is so low, that you would need a life time to get it correct
 SHA 256
 almost impossible to guess the input by brute force guessing, and guessing time could take several lifetimes for one person. But what could a quantum computer do?
1 SHA256
2 Any change to the string will dramatically change the hash. Brute force can take millions of years to be successful.
 SHA256
2.It is hard to brute force because it takes so long that it doesn’t matter
