Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and a digital payment system invented by an unknown programmer, or a group of programmers, under the name Satoshi Nakamoto. It was released as open-source software in 2009.
The system is peer-to-peer, and transactions take place between users directly, without an intermediary. These transactions are verified by network nodes and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain.
Since the system works without a central repository or single administrator, bitcoin is called the first decentralized digital currency.
A Bitcoin Faucet is a website that dispenses satoshi to visitors in exchange for completing a captcha. All payouts are sent instantly to your FaucetHub account and are automatically credited to your wallet address.
Cloud Mining is the process of bitcoin mining utilizing a remote datacenter with shared processing power. This type of mining allows users to mine bitcoins or alternative cryptocurrencies without having to manage their own hardware. Since Cloud Mining is provided as a service there is generally some cost and this can result in lower returns for the miner.
Users of hosted Mining equipment can either lease a physical mining server or a Virtual private server and install mining software on the machine
