I would like to contribute more for Algorand project by running a node than keep my Algo on wallet only. I’m using my computers to contribute for some project like: Ergo, Monero, Sia. Algo is my next project.
I understand that there’re 2 kind of node: Relay and participation. I searched some topic about node in this forum and find out that running a relay node can earn reward. I have few questions about the relay node:
- How many relay nodes are running Algo. The more relay nodes run, the more decentralization we have rite?
- The blockchain size of Algo is around 700 GB, should I increase more storage in the future to meet the node requirement? Does the blockchain size effect to the decentralization of network and scale up ability?
Thank you for all replies!
