What is bitcoin mining?
The short answer is simple.
It's validating bitcoin network transactions in exchange for bitcoin.
Those that help validate transactions get paid with bitcoin.
The network pays people for the work they do validating transactions. In exchange for helping sustain the system, they are rewarded with bitcoin.
The bitcoin network uses outside help to validate its transactions.
Because there is no central authority controlling transactions, the network uses the power of computers participating in the network to make sure that everyone is following the rules.
These "validators" are called bitcoin miners.
They are called miners because the bitcoin reward from the network consists of newly minted bitcoins. This is how new bitcoin are introduced into circulation.
