Node is a single server in Universa Network, running a copy of Universa Node software (see its sources at GitHub:  UniversaBlockchain/universa/…/universa_node).

Each node stores the copy of Universa Blockchain data and synchronizes it with other nodes. Also, it is available for connection from clients, and can:

  • register the new smart contracts – or new revisions of the already registered smart contracts – validating them in process;
  • say whether a smart contract is currently approved by the Universa network, for a given smart contract (or Hash ID of the smart contract).

If you are interested in running your own node, please consult the Node Owner Central.
