Cardano network infrastructuree

Cardano is a decentralised network. This means that it is run by volunteers from all over the world. All pool operators must operate their own Cardano full node. Cardano full node is also operated by all users who use the Daedalus wallet. All nodes communicate with each other and pass information about transactions and blocks. Each full node maintains its own version of the ledger. Let’s take a look at what the Cardano infrastructure looks like.


  • The pool operator must operate one block-producing node and at least one relay node.
  • Pool operators use cloud services to run relay nodes.
  • Using cloud services is not a significant risk for blockchain networks.
