What is ‘Bitcoin Mining’
The role of miners is to secure the network and to process every Bitcoin transaction. Bitcoin mining is the process by which transactions are verified and added to the block chain. Anyone with access to the internet and suitable hardware can participate. The mining process involves trying to solve a computational problem. The participant who first solves the puzzle gets to place the next block on the block chain and claim the rewards. The rewards, which incentivize mining, are both the transaction fees associated with the transactions compiled in the block as well as newly released bitcoin.
