Bitcoin miners are specialised nodes that process already verified batches, or blocks, of transactions on to the blockchain where they remain forever.
As a result of this work, miners receive compensation in the form of block rewards for their trouble.
With the Bitcoin halving happening every 210,000 blocks, there’s a race for miners to solve hashes and accumulate Bitcoin before the block rewards get cut in half.
