About Bitcoin Mining

Bitcoin mining is based on the computation of a cryptographic mathematical function commonly known as the SHA-256 hash function. Bitcoin mining equipment is rated based on hash rates per second. Bitcoin mining solutions provide increasingly higher hash rates per second to ensure the correct solutions of mathematical puzzles that are intrinsic to the Bitcoin network.
