ndau nodes validate transactions, reach consensus on the result, and add them to the ndau blockchain.
- Verifier nodes are nodes that have not staked any ndau.
- Registered nodes are nodes that have staked ndau and are eligible to be assigned to the ndau consensus engine’s validation network.
- Validator nodes are registered nodes that are currently assigned to the ndau consensus engine’s validation network. Validator nodes are eligible to earn node rewards.
See ndau API endpoint documentation for more details on how to interact with nodes and ndau Guide: Registering and Managing a Validator Node to learn how to set up your own node.
