OK, so I understand that bitcoin in introduced into the system when mining is performed. And mining is a process of adding transactions records to the bitcoin chain of blocks. And transaction (mentioned above) is nothing but bitcoin transactions taking place, which needs to be securely computed and added to the chain of blocks.
Now, my question is when the first bitcoin was rewarded to the first miner (may be the second one, after Satoshi added the main block), what transactions were taking place which needed to be computed and added. Theoretically, there was a point when there were no bitcoins in the network, then how did it start.
