Bitcoin mining runs Bitcoin’s blockchain. BTC mining is responsible for carrying out transactions, as well as for moving Bitcoin from the asset’s maximum supply into its circulating supply. Bitcoin mining is the peer-to-peer process of adding data onto Bitcoin’s public ledger in order to verify and secure a contract. Groups of recorded transactions are gathered in blocks and then added onto the Bitcoin blockchain.
In short, miners all over the world look to solve complex puzzles on their BTC mining machines in an automated fashion. These machines all compete to find puzzle solutions. When a puzzle is solved, a block is mined and the solver is rewarded a set amount of Bitcoin. A new Bitcoin block is mined every 10 minutes on average. Electrical expenses and other aspects affect Bitcoin mining profitability.
A Bitcoin mining rig is a computer hardware setup designated for BTC mining, whereas a Bitcoin mining farm is a group of mining machines. Mining pools also exist, formed of groups of miners pooling their resources toward a shared mining goal and a shared mining reward.
