QUESTION: what ARE people giving up space for on their computers

You just said, "solving problems that don't need solving". WHAT EXACTLY is BitCoin using peoples' computer to do? Is everyone unwittingly powering SkyNet while jumping for joy because they were "smart" enough to buy when it was $5 a bitcoin?

I support Bitcoin but I'm still learning about it. What is BitCoin doing with my memory and processing power?
