What Is A Full Node?

A full node is a set of programs that fully validates transactions and blocks across Quai Network. Almost all full nodes help the network by accepting transactions and blocks from other full nodes.
In Quai Network, a full node represents a computer that is running all 13 blockchains within the network. It is possible to run any sized subset of the network. Example node set ups:
  • Running all of Cyprus (Region 1) would consist of Prime, Cyprus, Cyprus 1, Cyprus 2, and Cyprus 3: totaling 5 blockchains.
  • Running on just Cyprus 1: totaling 1 blockchain.
  • Running Cyprus 1, Cyprus 2, Cyprus 3: totaling 3 blockchains.

  • CPU with 2+ cores
  • 4GB RAM
  • 20GB free storage space to sync
  • 8 MBit/sec download Internet service
  • Fast CPU with 4+ cores
  • 16GB+ RAM
  • Fast SSD with at least 100GB free space

Disclaimer: These requirements may change over time as the network grows.
