Bitcoin mining is how Bitcoin transactions are validated and confirmed by the Bitcoin network.

Bitcoin miners create a new block by solving a proof of work problem that is chained through cryptographic proof to the previous block.

A Bitcoin miner is a computer specifically designed to solve problems according to the proof of work algorithm.

Currently, highly specialized chips called ASICs, Application Specific Integrated Circuits, are used as Bitcoin miners.

Anyone can get a bitcoin miner and mine bitcoins by connecting to the Bitcoin network. Those with lower electricity costs have a competitive advantage.
