How Bitcoin mining works?

Hi, Bitcoin mining is the process of creating new bitcoins and securing the Bitcoin network. Bitcoin mining works by solving complex mathematical problems that validate transactions and add them to a public ledger called the blockchain. Bitcoin miners use specialized hardware and software to perform these calculations and compete with each other to find the solution. The first miner who finds the solution gets to create a new block of transactions and receive a reward of newly minted bitcoins and transaction fees. The difficulty of the problems adjusts every 2016 blocks (about two weeks) to ensure that a new block is created every 10 minutes on average. Bitcoin mining is essential for the functioning of the Bitcoin network, as it ensures that transactions are verified, recorded, and immutable. Bitcoin mining also regulates the supply of bitcoins, as there can only be 21 million bitcoins in existence. As of January 2022, about 18.9 million bitcoins have been mined, leaving about 2.1 million bitcoins left to be created. Bitcoin mining is an energy-intensive and competitive activity that requires a lot of resources and expertise. However, it also provides an opportunity for anyone to participate in the Bitcoin network and earn rewards for their contribution.
