    If everybody stopped mining right now, bitcoin would be dead. The mining process is what confirms bitcoin transactions, without it, no transactions can ever be made and validated. – us2012 Dec 8 '13 at 2:22
  • edit: if transaction fees becomes reward and new coin rewards were stopped – Seshu Bonam Dec 8 '13 at 7:42
