What is Cryptocurrency mining?
Think of CryptoGlobal like the utility company for digital currency transactions. Instead of powering your house, CryptoGlobal powers the blockchain.
For digital currency transactions to work; every Bitcoin or Ethereum transaction needs to be validated and verified by cryptocurrency miners like CryptoGlobal.
CryptoGlobal uses powerful mining machines — super computers — to solve complex problems that validate Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency transactions. Every time CryptoGlobal solves a problem, its computers create a digital seal known as a "block" to verify the transaction. Each block is saved to the blockchain — a virtual ledger that records every digital currency transaction.
CryptoGlobal gives its energy and computing power to the blockchain and in return, CryptoGlobal gets little pieces of each transaction (paid in digital currency) as a reward.
So far, the company has a large-scale mining operation up and running in Canada – with concrete plans to scale its mining machine hash power in Q1 2018. CryptoGlobal currently mines a diverse mix of four popular cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Ether, Dash and Litecoin.
