Hello,

We have a custom Blockchain based on the original BTC one with some tweaks. Now how can I get the information how many nodes are currently supporting the network?

You can't. The best you can do is to make a crawler to try to figure out what nodes are accepting incoming connections. You can't know about the nodes that only have outbound connections though.

Thanks for the reply.

Then how would I set up such a crawler?
