This question already has an answer here:
I am new to the bitcoin world and I'm fascinated by its principles. I have found a great description of how the mining works in this answer. Now, I see that a great deal of it is based on network-self input caps.
But what prevents a user from not following those and generating more blocks than established? Wouldn't, in such a case, the attacker only need a great amount of wallets and transactions so that his mined bitcoins become "factual"?
Feel free to correct me if any of my assumptions is wrong.
