Bootstrap Node

An Ethereum network is a distributed architecture that connects nodes and nodes without a centralized server. A node is a structure that is connected to neighboring nodes, and a neighboring node is connected to another neighbor. So a node can not be connected to all nodes. Of course, there is no need to be connected to all nodes, but there is a need to connect to some specific nodes in the network. Ethereum has a bootstrap node to allow that quickly retrieve this particular node. This node does not store blockchain information but only finds nodes on the network. It stores a list of connected nodes for a certain period of time. When a normal node is connected to the network, it first accesses the bootstrap node first, and after receiving the list of connected nodes, it connects with the nodes and disconnects from the bootstrap node.
