Sure thing! Blockchain nodes are computers in a network that maintain a copy of the entire blockchain and validate transactions. They’re like the backbone of the system, ensuring data consistency and security. To set up your own node, first, choose a blockchain platform you want to engage with. For instance, if you’re into bonding, you can follow a guide on https://nodes.bond/ which offers step-by-step instructions for various levels of technical expertise. Running your node helps decentralize the network and contributes to its robustness. It’s not overly complicated if you follow a good guide.
