61.6% of Ethereum network nodes are located on centralized cloud services, reports The Next Web, citing a study by Chainstack.
 

Using the information from ethernodes.org, the company compiled a complete list of Ethereum nodes, their IP addresses, and compared them with the data of the autonomous systems of the hosting providers. According to Chainstack, as of September 20, there were 8933 nodes on the Ethereum network. Only 3434 (38.4%) of them are hosted on their own infrastructure, and 5499 (61.6%) use cloud services.

 

 

The 10 largest cloud hosting providers accounted for 57.3% of the second cryptocurrency network nodes. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has the most Ethereum nodes, 25% of the total.

 


 

The study also found out that a third (34%) of Ethereum cloud nodes are in the United States.
