While traditional currencies are printed by central banks, bitcoins are 'mined'. To create and obtain bitcoins, miners have to solve complex mathematical problems that require a lot of time and computing power from their devices.

Thanks to these calculations, miners validate transactions on the blockchain and are rewarded with transaction fees in bitcoins and newly created bitcoins. Only blockchain-based cryptocurrencies with a Proof-of-Work consensus mechanism can be mined.
