Miner

An individual or entity that manages a node (or group of nodes) which are responsible for adding new transactions to blocks and verifying blocks created by other miners.

Miners collect transaction fees and are rewarded with newly issued cryptocurrencies (e.g bitcoin or ETH) for their services.

On a proof of stake blockchain, miners are called 'validators'.
