I would like to provide a Ethereum node in the State of Florida in the USA. How many Ethereum nodes are already on-line in Florida? How do I go about buying and registering a new Ethereum node?

  • What sort of node? Full or also mining? What for? How do you think we care of the location of the node? Why do you think a node is different than a standard computer? Why do you want a node ? So many questions you need to answer before asking how to build a node... – Nicolas Massart Jun 20 '16 at 21:38
  • Ethernodes would suggest there's a few there already... – Richard Horrocks Jun 20 '16 at 21:48
  • I am interested in an Ethereum node that would be dedicated to mining. As such I assume there is a specific operating system (Ubuntu?) and Ethereum version required for mining. I assume I could use a DELL PowerEdge T630 Tower Server for the hardware. Iplan to connect to AT&T's fiber network. – St Pete Roger Jun 21 '16 at 1:25

You don't need to buy or register an Ethereum node. You can simply download one of the clients such as go-ethereum and run it on a computer connected to the network.

Ethereum nodes will automatically connect to other nodes and synchronize a copy of the Ethereum blockchain, so there's no formal registration needed.

If you want to stand up a mining node, that will require some advanced setup. Either way, I'd highly recommend you read through Ethereum's documentation before you get started.
