Each Bitcoin wallet is a node, where the node with the full blockchain ledger is called a full node. As of October 2017, Bitcoin had approximately 9,300 full nodes across the network, responsible for broadcasting and verifying Bitcoin transfer transactions. After the transfer transaction occurs, all nodes are broadcast to the whole network, and the mining node verifies that the transaction is correct and records it to the blockchain ledger.
