Full node

- CoinGecko 님 | 업데이트: Mar 03, 2020
Nodes are computers that verify the set of rules that are built into the protocols of a given cryptocurrency. In the context of Bitcoin, the software that allows a computer to act as a full node is called the Bitcoin Core. Once a computer's Bitcoin Core programme is fully synced with the network (downloaded all past history of the blockchain), it becomes ready to help verify all incoming future blocks, as well as provide data to other nodes as a full node.
