Solana's Decentralization In Numbers
Unique Data Centers
Serving Total Stakers
Decentralization by Region
With over 2897 nodes spread between 31 countries, 199 cities and 371 data centers, Solana is truly a global network. The map above shows the location of all nodes, while the bar charts show the distribution of nodes by country and city.
How have the number of validators grown over time?
In the last 2 years Solana has grown from ~381 staked validators to 1625 today. After a relatively stable start, it can be seen that the number of staked validators has grown consistently over the last two years, independently of market cycles and other external events
Is Solana's Nakamoto Coefficient increasing or decreasing?
Over the same period of time, the Nakamoto Coefficient has risen from 13 to 31. This means that stake is becoming more distributed over time, which is a good sign for the health of the network. The less concentrated the stake is, the more decentralized the network is and more resilient to attacks.
