Who can be the nodes in this ecosystem?


Hi Blockcerts community,

I am a beginner and not sure if anyone had asked this question. Please correct me if I am wrong, having more blockchain nodes will be more secured in term of blockchain protocol.
In the case of 1 university issue a cert to students and employer/viewer views it;
How many parties can be the node? It makes more sense for those who is able to write to be node right? Please enlighten me :smiley: It seems not many parties could potentially get involved hence not many nodes?

Thank you very much


Hi Han,

Please see this answer previously answered here.

In short, because Blockcerts is using a public blockchain, universities do not have to serve as a node. They will simply be registering signed hashes on the blockchain. They don’t need to create the infrastructure.
