How does bitcoin work?

Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency that operates on a peer-to-peer network called the blockchain. It allows for secure, transparent, and fast transactions without the need for intermediaries like banks. Here is how Bitcoin works:

  1. Transactions: Users can send and receive bitcoins through the network. Each transaction is verified and recorded on the blockchain.
  2. Blockchain: The blockchain is a public ledger that contains a record of all Bitcoin transactions. It is decentralized and maintained by a network of computers called nodes.
  3. Mining: Bitcoin miners use powerful computers to solve complex mathematical problems that validate transactions and add them to the blockchain. Miners are rewarded with newly created bitcoins for their work.
