While running NiceHash Miner (or any other official open-source miner) your PC or hardware is solving different mathematical equations and sending the results to NiceHash. These results are then used for creating new cryptocurrencies (such as Ethereum, Zcash, or Monero) or for allowing transactions between them. For each such result, you get paid in bitcoins.
