Hi,

Is it correct to say that the old blocks never change,
all new transaction are included in the new mined blocks.
In that case what is going to happen when the mining will stop ?

Thanks in advance.

Mining never stops.  Block rewards will eventually stop.  Block rewards are merely a subsidy to compensate for low transaction volume.  As the subsidy is reduced to zero fees will need to replace that.

Blocks are unlikely to change and the deeper a block is in the chain the less likely it is to be changed.

Old blocks never change.  Thats the point of them.

When mining stops, no one's transactions are confirmed and bitcoin dies.  Hopefully that doesn't happen.  If it does happen, hopefully it is because we moved to a better fork.
