Bitcoin Mining

What is Bitcoin Mining

Bitcoin mining is the method through which each and every transaction is validated and added to the blockchain or the public ledger. It is also the process by which new Bitcoin tokens are released. Those having internet access and appropriate hardware can take part in the mining process. Bitcoin mining includes consolidating latest transactions into specific blocks and attempting to resolve a computationally challenging equation. The miner who solves the equation first gets to save the subsequent blocks on the blockchain and eventually claim mining rewards. In fact, these rewards that incentivize mining, continue to serve as the processing fees linked with the transactions arranged in a block as well as the freshly released BTC or Bitcoin tokens. During Bitcoin mining, the mining hardware runs a hashing function (that is, two rounds of SHA256) on a block header. For every new hash that is worked on, the Bitcoin mining software will make use of a completely different number (known as the nonce) as one random component of the block header.

Bitcoin Mining Hardware

Bitcoin Mining CPU

When Bitcoin was first launched, CPU was the only hardware device which miners used to mine bitcoins. However, in today's date, CPU is not considered a good and profitable mining interface, since graphics cards and special hardware devices such as FPGAs or ASICs are faster in solving computational equations which create BTC. Nonetheless, there are a few specific mining programs such as cpuminer which run on CPUs. You will have download cpuminer and then configure it with a mining pool.

BitCoin Mining GPU

The advent of high-end graphics cards brought about a major change in the mining landscape. A few years ago, CPU mining finally gave way to efficient GPU mining. Any functional GPU may be used in Bitcoin mining, but the AMD line of GPU design is proven to be better than the Nvidia design for Bitcoin mining. The ATI Radeon HD 5870 is, by far, the most cost-effective option at the moment. If you have decided to buy the best GPU mining hardware, it is important to take into account the total consumption of power and the cost incurred. No doubt, GPU mining is better than CPU mining. However, when speaking of profits, the output is more or less negligible.

Bitcoin Mining FPGA

Just like the CPU to GPU shift, the world of Bitcoin mining proceeded to the Field Programmable Gate Array. With the auspicious launch of Butterfly Labs FPGA, Bitcoin mining made way for the uniquely constructed hardware which is committed to mining BTC. This was the very first FPGA device to exceed the mining power of 25 GH/s with only one device. Butterfly Labs FPGA devices became popular among Bitcoin miners once mining with graphics cards became a competitive affair. To bring about a balance between the capital investments and the electricity costs, FPGAs were created. The FPGA rigs were not only efficient with an average mining speed of 500MHz or more, but also consumed less electrical units.

Bitcoin Mining ASIC

The world of Bitcoin mining has wholly adopted the Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) system. The ASIC chip is specially designed to perform mining activities. An ASIC model cannot be remodelled to perform other duties. There are a lot of similarities between the FPGA and the ASIC hardware. Both run the same logic function-based operations, thereby generating considerable hashing power in a cost-effective way. However, with the advent of ASIC, FPGA started to fall back. Just like FPGAs, it was the Butterfly Labs which declared the launch of first ever ASIC hardware. The most popular ASIC mining devices in today’s date are AntMiner S7, AntMiner S9 and Avalon6.

Is Bitcoin Mining Profitable?

When Bitcoin was first launched in 2009, mining was a successful and lucrative venture. Those who started early successfully accumulated BTC tokens through profitable mining. Slowly, the value of Bitcoin consistently went up in the next few years, resulting in an abrupt rise in the difficulty level of the mining process. Not only did it become harder to solve the mining equations, but it also became a lot more time-consuming. In order to ensure consistent profitability, investors can opt for Pool Mining or Cloud Mining.

What is Pool Mining?

In the last few years, an inconceivable amount of hashrate or mining power is making its presence felt online, thus making it difficult for people to have adequate hashrate to resolve a block single-handedly and earn the mining reward. As a possible solution to this hurdle, the concept of Bitcoin pool mining was introduced. Pool mining is a process wherein individuals or group miners can contribute to the process of block generation, and then split the reward as per the individual contributions.

What is Bitcoin Cloud Mining?

Cloud mining (alternatively known as cloud hashing) allows online users to buy hardware mining capacity in data centres. With Bitcoin cloud mining contracts, you can earn BTC without having to deal with the issues related to mining hardware, bandwidth, electricity, or other such offline issues.

Bitcoin Mining FAQs

What is the Payout Criteria for Bitcoin Mining?

Pay per system is the method by which Bitcoin share is transferred. The payout criteria for Bitcoin mining is 0.1 BTC per day. The payout criteria may differ with the criteria of Bitcoin mining pools.

What is Bitcoin Mining Pool?

Bitcoin mining pool is the shared network place, where other miners share their processing power to generate more rewards. These rewards are automatically distributed among the pool members. You can join a pool if you are thinking of earning Bitcoin without investing much of your time.

What is Bitcoin Mining Share?

Bitcoin mining share is basically a hash which is smaller than the target for difficulty of 1. Basically, a share has no value. It is used to monitor the functioning of the mining process and keep a check on the rewards that are equally distributed among the users by fair means.

What does TH/s or GH/s mean?

TH/s and GH/s are the measurements of hash rates per seconds. 1 TH/s is 1,000,000,000,000 that is one trillion hash rates per second, whereas 1 GH/s is 1,000,000,000 that is one billion hash rates per second.
