So there are three main things to do in mining:
Confirm bitcoin transactions

Bitcoin Mining Technical Review
Maybe when you hear the term “bitcoin mining”; Imagine coins being pulled out of the ground in your mind; But bitcoin is not physical. So why call it mining or mining?
Because bitcoin mining is not philosophically unlike gold mining; As such, bitcoins exist in the design of bitcoin code and protocol; (Such as gold in the mines) but not yet accessible (such as gold not yet extracted).

The more scientific name for mining is Proof Of Work. In fact, the extraction process originated from an algorithm called proof-of-work that someone named Adam Back first used in his anti-spam system called HashCash.
