What is a Cryptocurrency Node?
The technical definition of a "node' in computer science is a device playing a part in a network. In the context of blockchain and cryptocurrency, a node is a computer running blockchain software to store and validate transaction history. Each node is responsible for holding an identical copy of all blockchain transactions. Nodes broadcast the creation of new "blocks," a group of news transactions on the blockchain, so each node updates its database simultaneously and similarly. Nodes are responsible for maintaining a correct database of prior transactions in a distributed manner. They validate all dealings on a "distributed" or "peer-to-peer" blockchain network.
