I (temporarily) switched my archiving and relaying full node to a pruning and relaying full node and it counts as equal in the 21inc node count and probably in all other node counts. This a security breach! Pruning nodes relay transactions and the latest block but do not serve historic blocks. No one can start a new node from a pruning node. A new user wanting to start a new node or a user losing his block chain data due to a disk problem needs archiving and relaying full nodes and pruning nodes are completely useless for that purpose. We need to count the number of archiving and relaying full nodes even before we upgrade to SegWit which makes running an archiving and relaying full node harder. In theory there may just be 10 archiving and relaying full nodes right now!

 

HOW MANY ARCHIVING AND RELAYING FULL NODES ARE OUT THERE?
