For every transaction made on the blockchain, a “miner” is responsible for:
- Ensuring the authenticity of information.
- Updating the blockchain with records of the transaction
This involves competing with miners to solve complicated mathematical problems called Proof-of-Work.
The first miner to reach the solution is rewarded by being able to authorize the transaction, and earns a small amount of cryptocurrency in return for the service provided!
