Quantity of Nodes in blockchain network has fallen


Available Bitcoin Node is a node that can get and send requests for connections inside the network as well as saving data about all the transactions. At the same time, unavailable node can only set outgoing connections, but it can't do that with the inbox ones.

How the mass media tells, fall in quantity of available nodes can cause higher centralisation of the bitcoin network, what in its turn can become a reason of much bigger probelms, i.e. the 51% attack. This fall has probably took place because of the miners disconnecting their hardware due to the cryptocurrency price decrease.
