impossible to predict the outcome of input, hash functions can be used for proof of work and validation. A cryptographic hash function is an essentially one-way encryption without a key. The winner doesn't technically make the bitcoin, but the coding of the blockchain algorithm is set up to reward the person for doing the mining and thus helping to verify the blockchain. The interval of the game is controlled by the difficulty which says how many "hashes" are needed per interval. Here is an extremely simplified sketch of the problem, but it should give a pretty good idea of what the problem. Nonce 32-bit number (starts at 0) A hash is tried (increments).

There is a whole lot of maths and numbers involved, things which normally make a lot of people run in fear. 5572eca4dd4 db7d0c0b845, and this the hash of one special transaction that you just crafted, which gives 25BTC (the current reward) to yourself: 916d849af76, building the next block: Now, let's use a gross approximation of what a new block might look like (the real one uses. Just like the precious metal, there is only a limited amount (there will only ever be 21 million bitcoin) and the more that you take out, the more difficult and resource intensive it is to find. Our goal is to complete this block with a nonce (a piece of garbage) such that the hash of the new block starts with 13 zeros (considering the previous hash, it seems that 13 zeroes is the current difficulty!). Step 2, then mining software converts this to into a binary format called. If you are the first to do this, then you have mined the block (normally this takes millions and billions of computer generated guesses from around the world). Apart from that, Bitcoin actually works quite differently and it's actually quite genius once you can get your head around. They may contain different transactions of bitcoin spent in different places.
