What is mining?

BCP, like Bitcoin and most other cryptocurrencies, is based on a decentralized ledger of all transactions, known as a blockchain. This blockchain is secured through a consensus mechanism; in the case of both BCP and Bitcoin, the consensus mechanism is Proof of Work (PoW). Miners attempt to solve difficult problems with specialized computers, and when they solve the problem, they receive the right to add a new block to the blockchain. If all the other people running the software agree that the problem was solved correctly, the block is added to the blockchain and the miner is rewarded.

All decentralized blockchain communities reward those who assist in protecting network security. For example, Bitcoin gives rewards to its miners – a small bunch of people who protect the Bitcoin network. As for BCP, you will be rewarded BCP for your contribution to the network security.
