News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

I wanted to put this in the econ forum:

What is the miners function in the bitcoin 'economy'?
Mainly, why do they get the new currency? Are they solving hashes which will later be used by the client?

Thank you.
