What is a node?

In a distributed peer-to-peer network, a node represents a single device, such as a Raspberry Pi or computer.

Running a Mysterium Node helps power and maintain that network.

Each Mysterium Node voluntarily contributes its bandwidth, sharing it directly with the entire network without any kind of official host or authority needed.
