Bitcoin mining is an energy-intensive process with customized mining systems that compete to solve mathematical puzzles. The miner who solves the puzzle first is rewarded with bitcoin. The bitcoin mining process also confirms transactions on the cryptocurrency’s network and makes them trustworthy.

A hash is a function that meets the encrypted demands needed to solve for a blockchain computation. Hashes are of a fixed length since it makes it nearly impossible to guess the length of the hash if someone was trying to crack the blockchain. The same data will always produce the same hashed value.

Crypto payment provider TripleA estimates that 3.1% of Malaysians – just over one million people – own cryptocurrency. The company is just one of many to refer to Malaysia as the next regional crypto hub. But, is the hype justified?

Bitcoin mining is the process by which bitcoin transactions are validated digitally on the bitcoin network and added to the blockchain ledger. It is done by solving complex cryptographic hash puzzles to verify blocks of transactions that are updated on the decentralized blockchain ledger.
Bitcoin is a digital currency which operates free of any central control or the oversight of banks or governments. Instead it relies on peer-to-peer software and cryptography. A public ledger records all bitcoin transactions and copies are held on servers around the world.
