Northern Washington is were one of the largest US Bitcoin mining is occurring. This location produces 7 Bitcoins per day and only 1800 a day are mined wold wide. Every 4 years there is a havoc cutting the Bitcoin production in half and the next one will be in mid 2020. These machines have only one purpose that is to mine Bitcoin and they unitize ASIC processors (Application Specific integration circuit.) These machines were only created to mine the Bitcoin on the Blockchain and nothing else, but they are very efficient at what they do and they do it well. The miners (aka the computers)solve a very difficult math problem and that pool of miners that solves this puzzle get a share of the Bitcoin, but as more miners come online the puzzles get even more difficult. The final Bitcoin that will be mined will be in 2140.
This a good example what the world is doing to create Bitcoin and secure the network . People think this will be the one world currency that the bible predicts allowing any age, person or country to have an account. People are already inserting NFC chips in there hand and paying with bitcoin. If this is true less then one percent of the world will be able to have 1 bitcoin. Each bitcoin (BTC) is divisible to the 8th decimal place, so each BTC can be split into 100,000,000 units. Each unit of bitcoin, or 0.00000001 bitcoin, is called a satoshi. A Satoshi is the smallest unit of Bitcoin.
This will explain how bitcoins are mined and also show how people are using bitcoins in everyday use.
