The advent of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies has created a spur amongst the technology enthusiasts. Opening the gates for creating highly diverse ecosystems, applications, and new earning opportunities, Bitcoin mining has always been in the spotlight of the crypto world.
What is Bitcoin Mining?
By mining cryptocurrencies, we mean the computational power, time & effort that a miner invests to ‘Mine’ a particular coin. This computing/processing power is pooled by ‘miners’ (who are otherwise individuals operating powerful computers). These miners operate a single or multiple powerful processors (known as ‘mining rigs’) that work on the network to solve complex transactional problems.
Bitcoin Mining is the process of creating and originating the bitcoin currency to introduce more coins in the system. Transactions made in bitcoin are recorded publically by blockchain technology.
