This process involves that individuals are rewarded by the network for their services. Bitcoin miners are processing transactions and securing the network using specialized hardware and are collecting new bitcoins in exchange.
Each Solved block generates bitcoin to miner wallet. User gets bitcoin block reward for block solve. The generated bitcoin is transferable to any bitcoin wallet.

How much Energy Bitcoin consumes

As bitcoin price has increased to more than $9000 more and more miners are now adding more mining machines, Which uses lot of energy and it is still profitable to them. According to the latest reports  shocking 250 kilowatt-hours (KWh) is being used by miners for each Bitcoin transaction and there are about 3500 bitcoin transactions per day, Each Bitcoin transfer uses that much of energy which is good to run an average American household for 1 day.
If we calculate worldwide energy consumption of bitcoin mining it comes to over one gigawatt, Which could power the daily needs of over 800,000 American Homes.
If we minimize the electricity loss and assume about the economic incentives which are  available to bitcoin miners at a given price level, Despite this the minimum level of 75KWh / transaction will be a problem and at the actual 215KWH its a very big problem.
According to one estimate the Bitcoin mining network consumes more energy than as much energy needs of Country Denmark.

Benefits of Using Bitcoin

  3. It is still in development mode, new features are always coming.

Here are few solution through which we can save the energy consumption rate.
