Cryptocurrency containers – what is Bitcoin mining?


What is Bitcoin mining?


Bitcoin: A digital currency created in January 2009. Bitcoin offers the promise of lower transaction fees than traditional online payment mechanisms. Unlike government-issued currencies, it is operated by a decentralised authority. 

Bitcoin mining: Investopedia describes it as the process where new bitcoins are entered into circulation. It is also important in the maintenance and development of the blockchain ledger. It is performed using very sophisticated computers that solve extremely complex maths problems. 

Bitcoin mining key points:

  • With mining, you can earn cryptocurrency as a reward for performing tasks.
  • Bitcoin miners receive Bitcoin as a reward for completing “blocks” of verified transactions which are added to the block chain.
  • Mining rewards are paid to the miner who discovers a solution to a complex puzzle first. The probability that the participant will be the one to discover the solution is related to the portion of the total mining power on the network. 
  • You need specialist computers to set up a mining operation.
  • Bitcoin mining uses a lot of electricity and the computers create excess heat.
