Guys I need some help

I have a Big question guys
Maybe @ae-albena, @erik93 and others can help.
I find It pretty crazy that according with Aeknows there are already more than 13.000 full nodes in Aeternity
In Bitcoin I ve found that there are around 9.000.

:thinking:
In less than one year on mainnet we have surpassed Bitcoin in numbers of nodes?

It’s not that crazy when you think about how hard it is to set up a full bitcoin node, I’m not sure how heavy it is, but for instance I’m running a full Ethereum Node on my laptops HDD and it takes up about 80GB, with a fast internet it took a whole day to finish. On the other hand, an AE node is what, 1MB? Takes a few seconds :grin:
