How Much Bitcoin Can Be Mined in a Day?

Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency, without a central bank or single administrator, that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries. Transactions are verified by network nodes through cryptography and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain.

Bitcoin is unique in that there are a finite number of them: 21 million.

Bitcoins are created as a reward for a process known as mining. They can be exchanged for other currencies, products, and services.

NOTE: WARNING: The amount of Bitcoin that can be mined in a day is not fixed and can vary depending on a number of factors. Mining Bitcoin is a complex process that can be resource-intensive and difficult to understand. There is also no guarantee of success. Before engaging in any mining activities, it is important to understand the risks associated with it and to consult an experienced professional for advice.

As of February 2015, over 100,000 merchants and vendors accepted bitcoin as payment.

The owner of a bitcoin transfers it by digitally signing it over to the next owner using a bitcoin transaction, much like endorsing a traditional bank check. A payee can examine each previous transaction to verify the chain of ownership.

Unlike traditional check endorsements, bitcoin transactions are irreversible, which eliminates risk of chargeback fraud.

A payee can verify the signatures to verify the chain of ownership.
