I’m not aware of any Java mining code existing, and I would not expect it to: mining needs to be as fast as possible, so you wouldn’t want to bitcoin mining code java it in a language that runs on a virtual machine buy bitcoin united kingdom. Once you have that, you can read the mining code in Bitcoin Core. It won’t do anything bad to your computer, we promise.
Your computer—in collaboration with those of everyone else reading this post who clicked the button above—is racing thousands of others to unlock and claim the next batch. For as long as that counter above keeps climbing, your computer will keep running a bitcoin mining script and trying to get a piece of the action. So what is that script doing, exactly?

Your computer is not blasting through the cavernous depths of the internet in search of digital ore that can be fashioned into bitcoin bullion. There is no ore, and bitcoin mining doesn’t involve extracting or smelting anything. It’s called mining only because the people who do it are the ones who get new bitcoins, and because bitcoin is a finite resource liberated in small amounts over time, like gold, or anything else that is mined. What bitcoin miners actually do could be better described as competitive bookkeeping.
