Decentralization by Region

x

With over 5745 nodes spread between 47 countries, 214 cities and 521 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 1449 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 19. 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.
