The Problem There are already millions of cryptocurrency holders: Early adopters ahead of the crowd. However, only very few are actually able to set up their own node. Setting up your own node can be really hard. You first have to buy hardware that fulfills the storage/processor requirements. Then you have to install the client software and after many more painful steps you have finally set up your own node. You have to be very careful because your node should be running day and night; the blockchain never sleeps. Overall, this process is problematic for ordinary/non-technical people. This is why so few nodes exist compared to the number of actual cryptocurrency users. As of today, around 8,880 nodes are being run on the Ethereum blockchain. This number is quite low compared to its number of total addresses (112,000,000). Launching a node should be easier, more user-friendly and much quicker than it is today!
