Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency that is traded as a means of payment for goods or services. In Bitcoin mining, current Bitcoin transactions are recorded in blocks, which are then added to a blockchain or the records of past transactions.
Bitcoin miners use software to solve transaction-related algorithms that verify Bitcoin transactions. In return, you will receive a certain number of bitcoins per block. This is an incentive for them to continue to solve the transaction-related algorithms and support the overall system.
According to Business Insider, almost 90 percent of all Bitcoins have already been mined and by the year 2140 all bitcoins will be in circulation. Mining operations are usually costly, which makes them less convenient for the average consumer.
Without mining, the Bitcoin network would collapse, as this process verifies the peer-to-peer network transactions and enables decentralized consensus building.
