Is there any website we can check this? How important is the decentralization of full nodes compared to the decentralization of miners?

US have the highest number of reachable nodes followed by Germany and then France. It isn't accurate as some nodes might have already hit the maximum connection hence https://getaddr.bitnodes.io/ cannot connect to them thus adding them to the number. It is significantly harder to calculate the distribution of miners since most of them are using pools and pools don't release information about the rough location of the miners.

America by far.

https://getaddr.bitnodes.io

36% of them are located in the US.

This website has a pretty good overview.

yep the website has a pretty good overview, im not surprised to see USA and mostly north europe having the most % of nodes, but why china is not one of them? i mean one of the first 5 countries with the high % of nodes, is a little bit strange for me.

btw by looking at that web i start to think that we need more nodes scattered around the world, but is not a bad start Wink

IMHO #1.b of suspects, Hal Finney is/was S.N.

I'd say that is because china is known for mining and exchanging not much known for use of bitcoin.

Majority of the nodes that you see are mostly ran from a datacenter for the purpose of supporting the network. Vpses in China aren't cheap. Mining farms no longer host their own pool as it is troublesome and their bandwidth may be limited.

By a country mile. That's mainly down to their exchanges having no trading fees so it costs nothing to bat the same coin around thousands of times a day.

Also the great firewall of china severely limits their bandwidth and connection speed to nodes outside of China. It may be possible that there are hundreds of chinese nodes that simply connect to each other and only reach the rest of the network through a few nodes that go through the firewall. Those nodes would not be picked up by getaddr.bitnodes.io
