Process of creating cardano

Unlike other cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and Ethereum which are created based on proof -of-work through the mining process in the presence of electricity and internet using GPU and CPU, for Cardano, that is not the case. Instead, Cardano cryptocurrency is created as a proof-of-stake. Unlike in proof-of-work where new coin is added to its blockchain in form of a block and reward the miners who shared their computing power, for Cardano, this is not the case. Instead, Cardano holders are the one who are considered to add a block of the already existing Cardano cryptocurrency to the cardano blockchain after which they will be rewarded a certain percentage of Cardano based on their staking. No GPU or CPU is involved in this mining process
