Bitcoin Mining Definition Breaking down everything you need to know about Bitcoin mining, from blockchain and block rewards to Proof-of-Work and mining pools. Proof of Work Proof of work describes the process that allows the bitcoin network to remain robust by making the process of mining, or recording transactions, difficult.
Understanding Hash A hash is a function that converts an input of letters and numbers into an encrypted output of a fixed length. Partner Links. Another common criticism is that Bitcoin and the other cryptocurrencies are a bubble [ 4 , 6 , 8 ]. This claim is not a very informative one. What does it mean? Does it mean that the Bitcoin price is too high?
In a free market, the price is always right. When there is a housing bubble, it does not mean that there is something wrong with the houses, or that the sellers are greedier than they usually are, but it does mean that the government manipulates the interest rate and subsidizes bad mortgages, etc. If everyone buys cryptocurrencies, it is probably because the public has no other investment channels.
The banking interest is practically zero; the stock market is too high after 10 consecutive years of rising prices; and the housing market is recovering from the latest collapse. The fact that Bitcoin is in a state of a bubble, whatever that means, cannot be used as evidence to the argument that Bitcoin is worthless.
Another repeating argument is that Bitcoin is not a real asset in the sense that it does not yield any return. People purchase Bitcoin only to sell it later. But this is a strange argument, since, after all, money never yields return. A one-dollar note does not yield a return. This is exactly the function of money and the same applies to Bitcoin. One very common attack on Bitcoin is that it must be useless as money or currency since it has very high volatility [ 12 , 13 ].
However, it should not considerably affect its prospects to be used as a medium of exchange. Even today, most Bitcoin transactions are quantified in US dollars, that is, in these transactions, Bitcoin is used as a medium of exchange, while the US dollar is used as a unit of account. However, it should be stressed that in these transactions, the dollar takes no role. Bitcoin is currently exploring a new territory, in which it is used as a medium of exchange, but yet to be used as a unit of account on this discrepancy see Ref.
In the case of Bitcoin, the price increases exponentially, which is a clear sign of a nonequilibrium scenario. Exponential rise is an indication of a constant amplification process, which cannot occur in the vicinity of equilibria. In this case, it is clear that the volatility will increase exponentially as well. Therefore, there could be two options: A the approximately constant amplification process is close to its end, in which case the market will converge to a semiequilibrium state, and the volatility will decrease dramatically.
B The constant amplification process is going to last for some time, in which case the value of Bitcoin will continue to rise dramatically. Therefore, in both cases, the attractiveness of Bitcoin will increase, and in any case, the high volatility in an exponentially growing process cannot be used as an argument for the claim that Bitcoin is worthless.
It is only a sign that the crypto market is in its infancy stages. Another important claim is that Bitcoin is worthless as a medium of exchange because most people, who purchased it, hoard the coins [ 12 , 13 ]. This claim is often heard even in the crypto community, where the holders are encouraged to exchange their coins with goods, that is, to sell and buy the coins repeatedly e.
However, the two properties of money are tightly linked. A good cannot be a store of value unless it is a medium of exchange and vice versa. How can an object be valuable, without the option of exchanging it for something else? How can something be a medium of exchange, unless it is valuable? In this case, fewer coins are used in circulation and, as a consequence, their price increases. This is the mechanism that persuades the hoarders to part with their coins.
The hoarding dilemma is a very important point because it is related to another criticism: how can Bitcoin be used as a medium of exchange while being a deflationary currency? In a deflationary monetary economy, the argument continues, prices decrease perpetually, and therefore people have no incentive to buy anything, for they know that they will probably get it for less money in the future. In such an economy, consumption decreases, and the economy stagnates.
There are several problems with this argument. First, there is a problem of definition. Bitcoin is an inflationary currency, not a deflationary one since the number of coins increases gradually. It is true, however, that its rate decreases, and eventually the total number of coins is limited around 21 million. However, and this brings us to the second misconception, there is nothing wrong with rising prices.
In fact, the economic sectors, which experience decreasing prices, are the sectors with the highest growth rate. The computer industry belongs to this category. Computer prices perpetually decline for decades, while the industry is growing. People have needs, and as economists explain, they have a time preference, that is, they do not like to postpone gratifications [ 16 , 17 , 18 ]. If they need a computer, they will eventually buy it, and decreasing prices is a good incentive to make the purchase.
Eventually, they will buy the computer. The third misconception is that saving is worse than spending and therefore people should be encouraged to spend their money. In fact, unlike the Keynesian thinking, over consumption is the enemy of economic growth. Clearly, people have to buy to encourage production; however, the economy cannot grow unless there is enough savings and investments. Saving is a crucial ingredient in any economic growth, and therefore, there is nothing harmful in an economy with rising prices.
In fact, at the end of the nineteenth century, when the American economy was based on the gold standard, the US experienced one of its best economic eras during a deflationary period [ 20 , 21 ]. However, if, in the future, it will be clear that there are some benefits to inflationary currency, then there are many other coins, in which inflation is part of their algorithm, for which case there is no upper limit to the number of coins.
There is a claim that governments may create a competitive coin to Bitcoin, and simultaneously, the governments can outlaw Bitcoin. Indeed, the government can create a token of its own, and it seems that some governments seriously think about such an enterprise [ 22 , 23 , 24 ]. However, it is not clear what would be their motives. If these governments intend to create simply a true decentralized competitor to Bitcoin, then they would face two problems: 1 a government would never be able to compete against the decentralization level of Bitcoin and 2 with a decentralized coin, the government would lose all its benefits of controlling the national currency, that is, by replacing fiat currency with cryptocurrency, the government literally kills the goose that lays golden eggs.
If the government plans on creating a centralized coin i. Governments can confront the problem differently, and it can try to ban Bitcoin. This is evidently possible de jure but not de facto. The more the government manipulates the currency, the more the people need cryptocurrencies see, e.
Bitcoin, the claim argues, is a technological invention. In principle, there is no reason that it would not be defeated by competing technologies. Unlike gold, which would exist forever, Bitcoin is a technology that changes in time. This is an interesting argument; however, in fact, this argument only emphasizes the similarities between gold and Bitcoin. Gold is here to stay, but so does Bitcoin. Actually, due to its decentralization, it would be extremely difficult to eliminate the entire Bitcoin blockchain.
To achieve that, every copy of the blockchain should be erased. The chances of that are extremely low. Clearly, the value of the blockchain can decline substantially, but this is equivalent to a decline in the price of gold due to a lack of technological or financial interest. Having said that, it must be emphasized that a replacement of a monetary technology is a very challenging task.
Financial markets are very conservative. Gold has no clear chemical advantage over for example platinum, palladium, or iridium, and the main reason that gold is preferred over these precious metals is its early adoption as a medium of exchange possibly due to its unique yellowish color. The same thing applies to Bitcoin.
Bitcoin enjoys the network effect due to its early adoption. However, gold counterfeiting is still possible e. This brings us to a well-known argument, that says that Bitcoin, like any other digital asset, is not scarce, and therefore can be repeatedly reproduced.
He means that the algorithm can be copied and an infinite amount of rival crypto networks can be created. Moreover, each one of these coins can be forked to other coins. The original Bitcoin network was forked many times to Bitcoin cash, Bitcoin gold, Bitcoin diamond, Bitcoin segwit2x, etc. However, Bitcoin is not only an algorithm.
Indeed, the cost of copying the algorithm is negligible. But Bitcoin is also a very secure network. Every new Bitcoin-clone does not benefit from the same level of security. The more computational power is invested in the network; the more secure the network is, and the more people would find it safe to invest their money in it.
Bitcoin may lose its hegemony in the crypto sphere; however, as was explained above, it would be very difficult for new networks to pose a real threat to Bitcoin due to its proven high security and reliability. Recently, the Bitcoin adversaries took advantage of the heavy load on the Bitcoin network, which caused slow and high fee transactions, to claim that the Bitcoin does not deliver its promises—Bitcoin transactions are too slow and too expensive.
Soon, they predict, the Bitcoin network will be so cumbersome, that transactions will become unfeasible, and the Bitcoin project will be abandoned. This is indeed a problem. But this is a technological problem and not a fundamental one. It may explain why the Bitcoin market dominance declines, but it can never be used to explain why Bitcoin should be worthless.
Clearly, the Bitcoin developers are aware of these problems and work constantly to mitigate the harmful effects of the network load. Several technological improvements have been suggested and implemented SegWit, lighting network, atomic swap, and even raising block size in a forked versions of Bitcoin. Moreover, there are countless other currencies, whose transactions are much quicker and cheaper, and yet their value is considerably lower than the value of the Bitcoin network.
Despite the fact that the technology is yet in its infancy stages, and there are still numerous technological challenges, the value of Bitcoin keeps on growing. Therefore, these facts should be an argument for Bitcoin and not against it, because these problems show that the need for reliable decentralized currency in the modern markets is so high, that people keep purchasing it despite the high transaction costs and despite the fact that there are low cost but less proven alternatives.
Clearly, these are two different arguments. President Nixon, in , was responsible to complete the monetary experiment that began at with the Bretton Woods system. Since then, there is not a single fiat currency in the entire globe, which is backed by gold or by any other commodity.
Hence, a commodity backup is not a crucial ingredient in the making of money. As for the second argument, what does it mean that the currency is backed by the government? Clearly, if the government backs its currency by forbidding the usage of other currencies in its geographical territory , then it enforces a certain minimum value for the currency. However, not all governments can or do that. In most countries, the population can make economic transactions with many currencies. Most governments back their currencies by enforcing tax payment with them.
Similarly, the governments pay their employees with the national currency. However, these conducts are equivalent to the presence of a rich man in a market, who declares that any economic transaction with him can take place only with a certain currency. As richer this man is, the higher will be the value of this currency.
Clearly, a government is equivalent to a very rich man, but the differences are quantitative rather than qualitative ones. One of the most instructive examples in this regard is the Swiss dinars in northern Iraq during the gulf war [ 25 ]. This is a very interesting example, which vividly illustrates the fact that paper money can be used as a medium of exchange, despite the fact that it is backed neither by any commodity nor by any government.
An argument against Bitcoin, which was very common in its early years, is that Bitcoin is not a real medium of exchange because most traders, which accept Bitcoin, convert them to fiat currency almost immediately after the transaction. Nowadays, this argument is heard less since many sellers prefer Bitcoin over fiat money. They prefer spending their fiat money and receive and keep their cryptos.
Moreover, nowadays many employees are paid in cryptocurrency. However, it is important to stress that whether the users of Bitcoin prefer to make an additional transaction after selling a product, that is, to convert the crypto to fiat, is irrelevant to the validity of Bitcoin as a medium of exchange.
First, there is no praxeological difference between the exchange of Bitcoin with fiat and the exchange of Bitcoin with other goods. If a seller prefers to convert Bitcoin into fiat currencies, it only means that he had decided to use Bitcoin as a medium of exchange to purchase the fiat currencies. Moreover, one should not ignore the fact that the main reason that sellers prefer to convert their cryptos back into fiat is due to government regulations mainly taxation and has nothing to do with the fundamental monetary properties of Bitcoin.
Some Austrian economists used the volatility problem and the last argument to claim that Bitcoin cannot be used for economic calculations. Since economic calculations are essential to any modern economy [ 16 ], it is futile, according to them, to replace the current fiat currency with Bitcoin. However, economic calculations can be made with any commodity. When a businessman has four bottles of wines, and he needs to choose between two production alternatives: one alternative that will eventually yield three additional bottles and a second one that will eventually yield five bottles, he will choose the latter.
Crypto traders already practice this kind of economic calculations using Bitcoin. However, volatility is indeed a problem mainly in intra-temporal calculations, i. Nevertheless, as was explained above, the volatility gradually declines, and it is one of the infancy problems of Bitcoin, and it is not a fundamental one.
Division of labor cannot exist in a nonmonetary economy. The presence of money drives people to specialize and increases their productivity beyond their personal needs. They can trade the surplus of their production in order to pursue higher gratifications for the analysis of production in the presence of specialization, see Ref.
Therefore, any adoption of Bitcoin as a medium of exchange should be accompanied by an upgrade of the division of labor. Is there any evidence for this? The problem is that it is almost impossible to attribute scientifically a specific improvement in the division of labor to a specific cause. However, it is clear that if a person prefers using Bitcoin than other currency, then he must have found it useful and more efficient for him.
Therefore, this individual can spend the surplus time in further specialization. Consequently, in a free market, any unregulated usage of Bitcoin or anything else for that matter is a circumstantial evidence for upgrading the division of labor. Property rights are subtle issues. There is a fundamental claim that intangible objects, like digital assets or ideas, cannot be owned.
The claim is based on the presumption that property rights and private ownership are essential to manage scarce resources in the real world. Thus, according to this view, only scarce resources like, land, houses, gold, etc. Bitcoin is a chimera, in that regard, since it is both digital, that is, intangible, and scarce.
In fact, the essence of the blockchain technology is the creation of scarce digital assets. That is, the blockchain creates artificial scarcity. Therefore, despite the complex philosophical issue, I believe there is a consensus that Bitcoins can be owned, and property rights can and should be applied to it. There is a claim, however, that Bitcoin advocates ignore traditional property rights, contracts, and traditional legal systems, which were developed and refined for millennia [ 12 ].
It is true that currently, it is easier to evade law enforcement using cryptocurrencies than using most bank transactions. The facts that there is nothing tangible in the Bitcoin network and that digital transactions can take place without the regulated banking system complicate law enforcement. However, on the one hand, it can be regarded as a technical difficulty, which may be solved using artificial intelligence technologies, and on the other hand, one may argue that these properties of the Bitcoin network only strengthen property rights, because they prevent government confiscation of private property private money.
The most well-known is the Ethereum network, but there are many more cryptocurrencies with this property like Neo, EOS, Cardano, etc. Therefore, the blockchain technology eliminates the need for external law enforcement in some cases, because the contracts are enforced within the blockchain itself. In general, cryptocurrencies strengthen private property and property rights. They do not weaken them. Some politicians and economists believe that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have no value to society since most of their users are outlaws and criminals [ 28 ].
For one thing, one has to make a distinction between the different cryptocurrencies. Most of the criminal activity was transferred from the Bitcoin network to the more private cryptos such as Monero, Zcash, Verge, etc.
Moreover, most of the illegal trade that takes place on the Internet belongs to the category of victimless crimes like drugs, gambling, and tax evasion , whose prohibition is disputed. In any case, the illegal activities that take place on the network only emphasize the fact that the crypto networks are valuable for at least some of the people, and in a market economy, when a commodity is valuable for some of the people, then it is valuable to the entire economy.
There is a claim that a Bitcoin-based economy would increase wealth inequality. This argument is based on the fact that most of the Bitcoin wealth is concentrated in a minuscule amount of Bitcoin addresses [ 29 ]. But clearly, wallets and addresses are not persons. Almost every user holds several wallets, and a wallet can and does generate multiple addresses mainly for privacy reasons. This argument suffers from an additional fallacy: the distribution of money in a population does not determine the distribution of wealth.
Quite the contrary, the distribution of wealth determines the distribution of money. In a free economy, people are paid for creating wealth. Since Bitcoin economy has a higher resemblance to a free economy than our current fiat economy, it seems that in a Bitcoin-based economy, the money distribution will be fairer than the current one. There is a claim that Bitcoin is worthless, because it answers no real need and solves no real problem. This claim can easily be refuted.
Bitcoin is a global, decentralized, highly liquid, and pseudo-anonymous asset. Therefore, in any transaction, which requires all these properties, the benefits of using Bitcoin over other currencies are clear. Moreover, that is exactly the reason that most people do not appreciate these properties. First, most people are unaware of the damage caused by centralized monetary systems. Second, only rarely do they perform international financial transactions in large volumes.
Third, most people are against anonymous transactions. In general, it is clear that the Bitcoin technology has a clear value wherever censorship-resistance is required. Money is one example, social media is another e. As was mentioned above, in a market economy, when an asset is valuable to some people, then it is valuable to the entire economy. Consequently, people who do not belong to any of these populations can still regard Bitcoin as a safe haven for their money.
However, the fact that Bitcoin is valuable only increases the mystery as for the origin of its value. In the previous sections, we have presented the problems in arguments, which claim that Bitcoin should be worthless. In particular, such an explanation was used by John McAfee to justify his prediction of the Bitcoin price at the end of [ 30 ]. The argument goes like that: currently, it costs several million dollars to mine BTC the current daily yield.
Within few decades, the mining rate will decrease substantially, while there is no reason to assume that the cost will decline more plausible that it will rise. This theory, which was developed by Smith, Ricardo and their followers including Marx , was based on the premises that the labor is the source of value. This theory helped them to explain the water-diamond paradox, namely, why the value of diamonds is higher than the value of water, while clearly water is much more useful than diamonds.
The classical economists would reply that it costs more to mine and to shape diamonds than to pump water from a nearby well. The subjectivist schools of economics, in general, and the Austrian school, in particular, would strongly disagree. Bohm-Bawerk, the well-known economist, would argue that it may be very costly to prepare a mud pie, nevertheless, the mud pie is still worthless. The Austrian economists would argue that the classical economists made it all wrong. It is the price of the product that determines its cost and not the vice-versa.
However, had he not known that he could sell the product at a price higher than the cost he would not have produced it. The same thing applies to any product, and mining is not an exception. As long as the market price of gold is higher than the cost of mining, then mining will continue, otherwise, the miners would stop the mining process. In the case of Bitcoin, the mining process cannot stop.

Grin is a relatively new cryptocurrency based on the MimbleWimble protocol, which ensures the privacy of transactions within the network. Grin has unlimited coins, which is certainly attractive for miners. The complexity of mining changes dynamically in accordance with the hash of the network. The coin uses the so-called Cuckoo Cycle concept. On January 16, , Grin met its second hardfork and introduced a new Cuckaroom algorithm. The next hardfork is scheduled on 16th July Those miners who want to keep mining Grin via CuckARood have to update their software.
ZCash ZeroCash was released in October Its algorithm allows using mining graphics cards. ZCash is completely anonymous in transactions. It is impossible to track them. Many people really like this feature. In , ZCash was massively introduced to popular exchange platforms.
Yet, the coin is greatly underestimated and, most likely, will reveal its potential only in This Bitcoin hardfork appeared in , and already boasts high liquidity. In , developers added a set of new great features messaging, voting with RVN, better compatibility, mobile wallet with seed phrase. RavenCoin can be easily exchanged on many different platforms.
It focuses on asset transfer on the basis of Ethereum and Bitcoin. Why RavenCoin is recommended for miners? Existing on the market since , Monero has proved to be reliable and viable. Monero provides an exceptional level of anonymity. Pretty easy for someone to just pick up and grab, re-implement and understand.
Technically, Ethereum Classic is considered to be an authentic Ethereum blockchain that maintains the original history of the whole Ethereum network. Due to the notorious DAO event in , Ethereum saw two ways of further development of the network. Others preferred to develop Ethereum without dark DAO memories. The latest reduction took place in March and the block reward was cut from 4 ETH to 3.
Nevertheless, ETC mining is still profitable. If you can allow buying more or less expensive GPU, try mining Litecoin — all in all, this is one of the most successful Bitcoin hard forks. Why Litecoin? One of the main reasons to try Bitcoin Gold is stability. Dash describes itself as digital cash in the world of cryptocurrencies. It enables swift and secure transactions around the globe via InstanSend and PrivateSend. Is it profitable to mine DASH in ?
It quite is. Dogecoin is highly popular, so is its mining difficulty. In , Ethereum has managed to get its second place back, and the price of the coin is expected to grow after the reduction of reward from 3 to 2 ETH. As a result, a decrease in supply, if there is demand, usually flows into an increase in value.
This will be facilitated by increased demand for digital currencies, the popularity of smart contracts and the decentralization of cloud computing. Bitcoin remains the king of cryptocurrencies with a current dominance index of A decrease in production, as a basic rule, means an increase in the value of the asset, especially with that constantly growing demand.
There is still enough time to start mining some bitcoins. It is important to understand that despite all the positive aspects, Bitcoin mining remains an extremely competitive market and the situation will only worsen in this sense. Be prepared to invest enough in mining equipment, technical support, and to pay some huge electricity bills.
By the way, if you have a pretty moderate amount of mining power, you can increase your crypto mining profitability by joining a mining pool mine together with others and share profit. The value of crypto is that it does exactly what users want money to do: store consistent value and act as a medium of exchange for goods and services globally, not just locally.
The value of Dai, specifically, is even more advantageous for users because Dai functions as a unit of account within the Maker Protocol , the system that allows its creation, and within blockchain dapps decentralized applications in the Maker ecosystem. Cryptocurrency, like any other currency, must be able to hold value effectively before it can work well as a medium of exchange. But where does that value come from and what makes for good storage of it?
Both Bitcoin and Ether ETH; the digital coin of a leading blockchain called Ethereum derive value as a result of supply and demand, making both volatile assets. ETH supports the many smart contracts platforms built on the Ethereum blockchain, including the Maker Protocol and the dapps built by developers to work with Dai and the Protocol. Because the Protocol demands over-collateralization, the value of the total collateral that backs Dai in the system is always higher than the total value of Dai in circulation.
Your request would be denied. But with the Maker Protocol and any other decentralized platform built on a blockchain , every single transaction is available for anyone to see at any time because the blockchain is a type of digital ledger —one in which every transaction is recorded, authenticated, and shared across a wide network of devices called nodes.
In this way, the blockchain eliminates any issues of trust and reciprocity e. Cryptocurrency Is Empowering and Inexpensive to Exchange. As transformative as the internet has been, the global financial system is still, comparatively speaking, in the dark ages. While the most popular Fintech apps, including Venmo, PayPal, and the like, have helped to deliver some traditional financial services in simpler ways, third parties are still involved, making it impossible for users to truly transact peer-to-peer.
A large chunk of those fees goes to the many intermediaries involved in money transfers. In addition, traditional cross-border exchanges take a lot of time—some transactions take days to settle.
