4. What does the Bitcoin mining represents by itself?

Bitcoin Foundation issues the reward for the usage of user’s computing power.
All Bitcoins were created beforehand and are distributed between the users in strong proportion with their contribution to the network computing power.
Bitcoins are created by the mining companies
