Bitcoin Mining 2020 :
Bitcoin is 10 years old today. You might have read about the decade anniversy of Bitcoin back in October 2018, but that was merely for the original Whitepaper published by the pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto. Today is the 10 year anniversary of the day the first Bitcoin came into existence. It’s the decade-old anniversary of the mining of the genesis block.
