I have been doing a lot of reading up on bitcoin, but I can't find anything that explains how some technologies are used in conjunction with the blockchain.
From my understanding, the reason bitcoin is distributed is the blockchain is stored at multiple nodes (miners). When they validate transactions they get added to the blockchain and miners get a reward/transaction fee.
My current question is around civic. What would be the benefit to miners when it comes to a technology like civic (i.e. what would they mine and why)? What is the engine that keeps this data distributed?
