The Massa network is decentralized: there is no central authority running the infrastructure that supports it. Massa is carried by individuals called "node runners", who run their personal computers ("nodes") to form a robust and uncensorable mesh of around the world, which supports the network's security and independence. Moreover, node runners are the ones who include pending operations into the blockchain by creating Blocks, which is called "staking".
