Elrond Nodes explained

Nodes are computers running the Elrond software, so they contribute to the Elrond network by relaying information and validating it. Each node needs to stake 2.500.000 ERD to become a Validator and is rewarded for its service. Nodes without a stake are called Observers - they are connected to the network and relay information, but they have no role in processing transactions and thus do not earn rewards.
