The number of running nodes has climbed by about 60% in just two months, indicating that interest in participating in the Ethereum network is growing.
If you recall, approximately two months ago, we published a piece about how Ethereum is losing nodes, which sparked a heated debate.
Fortunately, this condition did not persist long, and the network’s performance improved dramatically over that time, as proven by the increase in all Ethereum network nodes running to date.
The Ethereum Node Tracker currently has 8,388 active nodes in the Ethereum network, up from 5,259 in May. When we compare it to statistics from the end of March, when 6,841 nodes were discovered, we see a 22.6 percent raise.
The United States, which grew its number by 74.4 percent compared to May, and the United Kingdom, which astonished the most with a growth of up to 389 percent, are definitely among the countries with the biggest increase in nodes. As a result, the United Kingdom jumped from ninth to third place in the top ten countries list.
New countries such as Finland and Australia have entered the table, while India and South Korea have slid out of the top ten.
