What is Bitcoin mining?
Simply put, Bitcoin mining is the process of using computers to discover, confirm, and add Bitcoin digital transaction records to the public ledger, or blockchain. Miners receive a small portion of Bitcoin for each transaction they add to the blockchain, as an incentive to mine, since it takes specialized computer hardware, lots of energy, and time.
