What Is Bitcoin Mining?

Bitcoin mining is the process it takes to create more Bitcoin. It is a very complex task and hence usually not recommended for beginners who want to venture into the digital currency world.

The process requires the use of highly sophisticated machines. These machines are very expensive and consume high rate of electricity to solve the mathematical algorithm involved.

Miners enable transactions to be carried out by sharing their Bitcoin network, allowing it to run smoothly. In exchange for this network’s availability, they are rewarded with new Bitcoin. This is where the small fee for transactions goes.

In the short years of Bitcoin’s existence in the digital world, it is no longer a lucrative business to mine Bitcoin from homes. This is because there is a paradigm shift from the small scale to a better large-scale mining.

This shift created an opportunity for miners all over the world to put their resources together to form a mining pool. Investments in the mining pool can create a fortune for the investors. As the resources are used together to share hashing power, each investor is rewarded according to his share contribution.

Some of the highly reputable mining pools are Slushpool, BTC China, BW Pool, Antpool, DiscusFish/P2Pool, BitFury, Eligus, and KnCMiner. There are speculations that this Pool accounts for 56% of global Bitcoin miners.

What Is Cloud Mining?

Cloud mining is an alternative to the use of highly sophisticated mining machines. It involves the use of a remote data center alongside shared processing power. This is a great opportunity for individual mining from home without having to handle mining machine or hardware.

Undoubtedly, the most reputable company running cloud mining of Bitcoin is Genesis Mining. Bitcoin mining is not an easy task. It could take a whole year to get a tangible fortune from it.
