Question about 'sweeping' (import)

After you sweep the private keys of lets say a paper wallet to a desktop wallet like Bitcoin Core or Electrum, what happens? I have read that the balance on the paper wallet gets deducted to zero with fee and transferred to the desktop wallet, so does the private keys of the new desktop wallet gets changed?

Thanks!

Different between import and sweep is, former imports your private key to your wallet and it will be there until/unless you remove it. "Sweep" sends all bitcoins in the address associated to given private key to one of the addresses in your existing wallet. It does *not* store your private keys in your wallet and that means, if you want to send funds from it again, if any, you will have to import it which will store your private key in your wallet forever or sweep it if you want to move funds to your wallet.

Normally, if you want to send Bitcoin from an address which is not in your wallet, you have to import private key to your wallet, create transaction, sign it and then send/broadcast it. With "sweeping", Bitcoin in given address is send to one of the addresses in your wallet. You can select which address you want to receive it or it will send to your current "receiving" address.

Import  =  Store your private key
Sweep  =  Does *not* store your private key

If you want to send Bitcoin from a paper wallet to an address NOT in your wallet, "sweeping" is NOT the option to choose.

so does the private keys of the new desktop wallet gets changed?

Thanks!

Sweep  =  No
Import  =  No

When importing, your private key is stored *along* with your existing wallet. No changes will be made to your existing wallet.

Hello!!!
I want to ask how to mine bitcoin for newbie like me ?? Huh

Mining is not an easy job you need to wait for a couple of days i guess before earning a little big money. There are two ways or method in order for you to mine.

1. Mining using your computer - You can mine using your computer however you really need a good computer in order to mine fast or i should say a good specs in order to mine fast.

ADVANTAGES: You don't need to pay in order to mine.
DISADAVNTAGES: You'll be using your computer for a long time it's either going to over heat if it doesn't have a ventelation cooler plus you need to pay for the electricity.

2. Cloud Mining - There are a lot of sites out there offering this kind of service so what is cloud mining? It is a service where you can mine without using your own computer or mine even offline.

So how does it work? First in order to use their service you need to pay them or rent their computer they have diff list for example 5x faster mining = 50$ for 1 year you can mine but it depends on what kind of contract youre going to chose.

ADVANTAGES: You can earn even when you're sleeping, your computer will not be tortured and you don't need to pay high because of the electricity bill.
DISADVANTAGES: You need to pay for a contract (It depends on what you've chosesn. The faster the mining the higher the rent is) and it's a bit expensive

As far as I know, you can't.

CPU/GPU mining is over. You have to buy ASICs now and even with that, your ROI will be pretty bad. You could get some if you mine altcoins, but be careful when choosing. There are many worthless coins and pump-and-dump coins.

2. Cloud Mining - There are a lot of sites out there offering this kind of service so what is cloud mining? It is a service where you can mine without using your own computer or mine even offline.

So how does it work? First in order to use their service you need to pay them or rent their computer they have diff list for example 5x faster mining = 50$ for 1 year you can mine but it depends on what kind of contract youre going to chose.

Many sites which offer cloud mining are ponzis and scams. You should check *every* details before investing. Checking their total hashrate against total hashrate they sell can to some extent see if they are legit or not.

What antivirus software are you using? Bitcoin Core should not have any issues in it and it is also one of the most widely used software.

Check your download source of the Bitcoin Core client and make sure it is from the official website:
https://bitcoin.org/en/download

Your antivirus may not be accurate but do not switch it off, just make sure the one causing trouble is not your antivirus or the 'Bitcoin Core' you are downloading.

Several people have placed parts of known computer viruses in the Bitcoin block chain. This block chain data can’t infect your computer, but some anti-virus programs quarantine the data anyway, making it more difficult to run Bitcoin Core. This problem mostly affects computers running Windows.

this doesn't make any sense! do you have any reference or more information about this.
as far as i can tell, the only thing you can "place" in the bitcoin blockchain is a short hex string using the OP_Return. how can a string be recognized as a virus?!
