Beyond my curiosity, I'm really confused where those bitcoin came from when mining Undecided
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

It's very simple.Although individual bitcoins enter the Bitcoin economy as miners are rewarded for processing transactions, it's much more helpful to think of all 21 million bitcoins as having been created when Satoshi Nakamoto defined the Bitcoin protocol and launched the Bitcoin network in 2009.

The reason for this is that the Bitcoin protocol specifically defines and controls when and how a limited total number of coins are rewarded to miners for the job of securing the Bitcoin network. These "bitcoins" are really just mathematical tokens which are very carefully controlled by the network protocol to prevent counterfeiting, theft, etc.

I see, thanks bro I thought those mined bitcoins also came from lost bitcoins from inactive holders/owners.
