Generally speaking, miners earn money by successfully creating the next block of transactions, earning both the built-in subsidy — currently 6.25 BTC — as well as the combined fees paid alongside the transactions included in the block. Of the $521 million earned in November, nearly $55 million came in the form of transaction fees.
