A node provider (NP) is the owner of one or several node machines, and may also be involved in node operation and related tasks. Often, NP is also used to refer to a non-canister principal that receives the rewards stemming from node participation to the IC (aka “payout principal”). A node provider may receive rewards from multiple nodes in multiple data centers.
