Bitcoin Node Numbers Fall After Spam Transaction 'Attack'

The number of reachable nodes has declined further following an "attack" that overloaded the bitcoin network.

Last week, an unknown actor sent a deluge of spam that left bitcoin's nodes – the clients that store and relay transactions – with upwards of 88,000, or 1GB worth, waiting in their collective memory pool.

It's a sad fact that the total amount of (reachable)nodes have been going down for quite some months. I am happy to contribute with my full node and will surely continue doing so. It's a temporary solution bumping the minimum fee to 0.00005BTC per KB, but I would prefer to see this restriction being aimed at transactions below 0.001BTC. And everything above this can be sent without a fee if the person so wish.

indeed, running a node is quite simple these days. in this thread is a list of plug & play full nodes:
