Blockchain Networks Featuring Smartphone Compatible Nodes Are Gradually Changing the Game for Small Players

The crypto ecosystem has positioned itself as a disruptive niche to the centralized, traditional finance architecture. This upcoming decentralized market is based on blockchain technology, whose fundamental infrastructure is supported by several nodes instead of an overarching central authority. Blockchain nodes can be compared to small servers – their primary role is to store the blocks of data that make up a blockchain network. These decentralized nodes are connected and facilitate the exchange of the latest blockchain data for the network to stay updated. Simply put, nodes are the support system of blockchain environments. While the concept may sound technical, a node can be a computer, laptop, or other devices, including smartphones. Today, we have many blockchain networks such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Dogecoin whose operations are facilitated by node validators. Node Validation The process of node validation involves allocating resources such as memory and computational power to store data and verify transactions that are added to a blockchain network. For instance, the Bitcoin blockchain uses a Proof-of-work (PoW) consensus, requiring miners to allocate resources for transaction validation and secure the network. In return, the miners are rewarded with network rewards for each block added to the blockchain. Currently, the network reward on the Bitcoin network is at 6.25 BTC following the May 2020 halving.
