The Ergo Node is part of Ergo's peer-to-peer network which hosts and synchronises a copy of the entire blockchain.

Should you install the node?#
The node is a critical piece of infrastructure developers use to interact with the chain.
See the wallets page if you're just looking for a place to store your ERG, Satergo even has the option to install a full node alongside it.
To install from scratch please see the manual install page, or get setup on the testnet.
You can also use Docker, and even a Raspberri Pi with a fast SSD attached is enough to sync a full node.
