Bitcoin doesn't use anyone's computer unless they're mining bitcoin themselves or some bad actor has installed malware that uses the victims computer to mine in the background w/o being detected.

So bitcoin isn't doing anything to your processing power.

Think of digital mining just like physical mining gold/silver/whatever. The process doesn't matter (although the secure/anonymous process is one reason bitcoin has value) what matters is that you've dug up/unlocked a commodity that the market values.
