What Is Cryptocurrency Mining?
Cryptocurrency mining is the process by which recent transactions are checked and new blocks are added to the block chain.
Miners select pending transactions from the pool and check that the sender has enough funds to complete the transaction. The second verification confirms that the sender has authorized the transfer of funds using his private key.
The mining process solves complex cryptographic tasks that require powerful hardware. For mining can be used the power of computer video cards (GPU), processor (CPU) and specialized equipment (ASIC).
Mining is one of the possible earnings of cryptocurrency. The miner gets a good reward for creating each new block. However, this method of earning requires a lot of investment. In addition, over time, the complexity of mining increases, so you need to constantly upgrade the available capacity.
