What are BZnodes?

Owning and running a BZnode is a way that you can support the BZX network through mining.

BZnodes are commonly Virtual Private Servers (VPS) that store a copy of a fully synced BZX blockchain.
They support the network’s decentralised nature by helping to confirm transactions quickly and always run 24/7.

BZnodes receive rewards in the form of BZX for playing their part in supporting the network.

BZnodes are considerably different in their functionality than normal nodes. They are different because they perform several other functions apart from just keeping the full blockchain and relaying blocks/transactions as a full node does. Some of the special functions that these nodes perform are:

  • Increasing privacy of transactions
  • Speeding up transactions (Instant transactions)
  • Participating in governance and voting
