You can Mine Bitcoin Yourself

Posted by Bitcoin Basics

Mining is the process by which new Bitcoins are created.

Every 10 minutes, on average, a bitcoin miner creates a new block in the Bitcoin Block Chain, and the miner is rewarded by the algorithm with 25 bitcoins for finding a solution to the mining problem.

Miners are doing the work of securing the new transactions that have been announced since the last block was solved by signing them cryptographically.
