How Improving The UI And UX Of Bitcoin Nodes Could Benefit Everyone

Is it a cartoon? Is it anime? Why’s she so excited?As I, a twenty year old, write this in Singapore, about 15,000 active Bitcoin nodes are estimated to be running all over the world. These nodes store the Bitcoin database in part/in its entirety. With 15,000 computers storing the same....

The Role of Bitcoin Nodes: Do Full Nodes Running in Data Centers Benefit the Bitcoin Network?

Since its launch, Bitcoin Classic's node count has steadily increased. The latest release of the alternative Bitcoin implementation even topped the charts, with almost 3,000 Bitcoin Classic 0.12 nodes reachable on the network. But a closer look at these statistics reveal some odd details. First, IP-data suggests that many Bitcoin Classic nodes might not really be many Bitcoin Classic nodes at all. Instead, a single node could use multiple IP addresses to spoof total node count. This possibility appears more likely in light of the observation that very few Bitcoin Classic nodes seem to be....

NodeCounter Removes Duplicate Bitcoin Nodes From The Equation

Bitcoin nodes are an interesting trend to keep an eye on, as the digital currency’s network needs a lot of active nodes around the world to relay transactions. Up until this point, several people were running various types of Bitcoin nodes, including Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Classic solutions at the same time.

Editor’s Note: In addition to Amazon Web Services, BTCC also hosts nodes using Alibaba Cloud Computing Services, and is testing deployment of nodes on Rackspace. People who have been following the Bitcoin news recently will remember how Chinese exchange BTCC recently deployed an additional 100 nodes on the network. By spreading out these nodes all over the world, the Bitcoin network became a bit more decentralized than before. However, all of these Bitcoin nodes are hosted on Amazon Web Services, which is kind of centralizing the effort a bit.

China Overtakes Germany in Having Second Most Bitcoin Nodes

The huge growth in Bitcoin has almost everything to do with the Chinese's recent interest in the digital currency.

China trails behind the United States, which has close to 33,000 nodes at this time - so they've still got some catching up to do. Bitcoin nodes are critical parts of the Bitcoin network. These nodes are typically run by ordinary people or mining groups and are responsible for updating the ledger (block chain) with the....
