What is full node and Masternode?

  • What is a full node ?
    A full node is a program that fully validates transactions and blocks. Almost all full nodes also help the network by accepting transactions and blocks from other full nodes, validating those transactions and blocks, and then relaying them to further full nodes.
    Most full nodes also serve lightweight clients by allowing them to transmit their transactions to the network and by notifying them when a transaction affects their wallet. If not enough nodes perform this function, clients won’t be able to connect through the peer-to-peer network—they’ll have to use centralized services instead

    what is Masternode ?


    There is a functional difference between nodes and masternodes in a few ways,because apart from keeping the full blockchain and relaying blocks they insure performing several other fonctions like Increasing privacy of transactions, Doing instant transactions.
    Masternodes ensure all transactions are validated in near real-time Individual masternodes on the network have a chance to be selected as a recipient of part of each mined block’s value. As more time progresses, masternodes will earn the same share per block reward and more it will go to 75% for the masternode.
