What is Cryptocurrency Mining?

     Incredible as it may seem, Cryptocurrency Mining is one of the most popular subjects when we talk about the crypto market! There are still many investors who barely know how this "system" works. And there are two very interesting ways to deal with it here.

     It works more or less like this: it is through mining that new cryptocurrencies appear on the market, but this, of course, in summary terms and, when we talk about Proof of Work mining, the method used to generate new Bitcoins on the Market!

     This method by POW (proof of work) is the best known type of mining and is used by first generation cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin! Ethereum also used this method but now it works through Stake (which we will show you the difference below).

     Therefore, it is through cryptocurrency mining that Miners are paid, after all, they are wasting energy and wearing out expensive machines to generate new cryptocurrencies on the market. If this miner mines bitcoin, he is rewarded with bitcoin; if he mines litecoin, he is rewarded with litecoin... very simple to understand.


Is Investing in Cryptocurrencies Worth It? This is a question that many new investors ask themselves, after all, when the market is down, it is normal for many to be full of uncertainties and doubts.

What is the Best Platform to Store Decentralized Applications (DApps)? There are a multitude of platforms and, we will highlight in this article: Ethereum, Polygon and Binance Smart Chain.

Difference between Proof of Work and Proof of Stake:

     Although today there is a slightly more complex method than these two mentioned above, Proof of Work and Proof of Stake Mining are the best known forms of mining! In Proof of Work, strong computational power is required, in Proof of Stake, the more cryptocurrencies you have in Staking, the bigger your reward.

     The safest method today is Mining through Proof of Work (although some investors may disagree with this), just take the Bitcoin network - it is practically impossible to be Hacked and anyone who disagrees with this may be being dishonest at the very least.

     When you do Staking, at the same time, you are "reserving" your cryptocurrencies to validate user transactions, with that, you are rewarded with an amount of these same cryptocurrencies that you "bet"! The best known name for this system is POS (proof-of-stake).

     This type of mining also contributes to network security, in addition to blocking tokens and making the ecosystem less volatile! The two cryptocurrencies that we like the most with this system are Cardano (ADA) and Polkadot (DOT).

How Much Can You Earn With Cryptocurrency Mining?

     This is a difficult question to answer, as it is very relative how much a Bitcoin or Cryptocurrency Miner can yield. With regard to Bitcoin, if you live in a country with energy and expensive equipment like Brazil, this may not be viable for you, after all, miners at times may be negative - given the volatility of cryptocurrencies.

     El Salvador, for example, has been in favor of cryptocurrencies and the president has even been in favor of releasing clean energy from volcanoes to do Bitcoin Mining.

     Nor can we forget that you will have to sell a significant part of your cryptocurrencies to pay the bills and, considering that you are remunerated with an X amount of cryptocurrencies, if you are facing a bearish cycle, you will suffer a lot, but in a high cycle, it could be very profitable, hence the importance of Financial Education in these difficult times for the market!

     Now dealing with the POS, the reward rates for Staking in Altcoins pay as if it were a "savings", ranging from around 2 to 8% per year. Therefore, you are subject to both cryptocurrency appreciation and devaluation + this fee. Staking is very interesting for Holders who aim for long-term profits.
