What Is Bitcoin Blockchain?We will explain how Bitcoin blockchain works, in simple terms. First of all, Bitcoin is a digital asset and therefore does not have physical monetary value like a gold or fiat currency. Rather, Bitcoin is just a record on the Bitcoin blockchain that confirms Bitcoin ownership.
Bitcoin blockchain is a distributed ledger of timestamped Bitcoin transactions that are bundled into blocks. The Bitcoin blockchain is immutable and Bitcoin transactions are irreversible. Bitcoin network consists of thousands of Bitcoin miners and Bitcoin nodes.
Role of Bitcoin MinersThe security of the Bitcoin network is ensured by Bitcoin miners. Bitcoin miners use powerful computers to solve complex cryptographic problems to validate Bitcoin transactions and receive a Bitcoin reward. This computing process is called “proof-of-work”.
The first miner that finds the solution to the cryptographic problem and creates a new Bitcoin block, receives a Bitcoin block award. This is how new bitcoins are created. Each Bitcoin block is mined every 10 minutes on average, which is roughly 144 blocks per day.
Besides block rewards, Bitcoin miners earn Bitcoin transaction fees that are currently much smaller than the block reward amount. Specifically, they receive transaction fees for verifying and processing Bitcoin transactions included in the block they have mined and added to the Bitcoin blockchain.
We expect that Bitcoin transaction fees will increase substantially once the last Bitcoin is mined and no more block rewards are available. Miners are driven by financial incentives and they tend to prioritize Bitcoin transactions with the highest transaction fees.
Bitcoin ImprovementsA new Bitcoin block is created on average every ten minutes, with the block size limited to 1 MB. Therefore, Bitcoin block can accommodate only a limited number of Bitcoin transactions and it takes approximately ten minutes for Bitcoin nodes to verify them.
As a result, Bitcoin has a scalability problem because of the limited number of Bitcoin transactions that can be processed in a given time. Bitcoin community has been trying to resolve the scalability issue, considering various technical improvements of the Bitcoin protocol.
Fortunately, some of these attempts were successful. For example, Bitcoin technical improvement SegWit increased Bitcoin block size by removing signature data from Bitcoin transactions. The Lightning Network proposal aims to make Bitcoin scalable by introducing instant payments that occur off-chain. Lightning transactions offer considerably lower fees and faster settlement times than do Bitcoin on-chain transactions.
