Crypto mining is the process of using specialized computer hardware to verify transactions on a blockchain network and earn rewards in the form of cryptocurrency. The process involves solving complex mathematical equations to validate the transactions and add them to the blockchain. Miners compete with each other to solve these equations and add the next block to the blockchain. The first miner to solve the equation is rewarded with a certain amount of cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin or Ethereum. In order to mine, a person needs specialized hardware, like ASIC (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) or GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) and software to connect to the network and start solving the mathematical equations.
