Distinguish between Validators vs. Miners
The validators are amended to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) which validators are the ones building the block of the chain enabling tasks for checking transactions, verifying activity, voting on outcomes, and maintaining records.
To become a validator is to “buy into” the position means that token owners will have to offer their tokens as collateral for the chance to validate blocks. Token owners who staked their coins will become validators and receive transaction fees as rewards.
Miners are found in Proof-of-Work (PoW) blockchain network, their task is to solve complex mathematical equations to complete the requirement of becoming nodes for a chain.
Miners usually need to invest in highly advanced equipment, powerful computer RIG, and energy power to run the work. As the name suggests, as proof of work, miners rely on the amount of work they input to receive block rewards.
