# Node score

The Node Score within the GPUnet ecosystem is a metric designed to quantify the contribution and significance of a node based on the number of Node License Keys it holds. This score is a critical component of the overall reputation score, influencing the distribution of network rewards.

**Calculation of Node Score**

The Node Score is determined by the number of Node License Keys a participant possesses (Node Units or NU) multiplied by a Node multiplier (NM) based on the following;

Node Units (NU) | Node Multiplier (NM) |
---|---|

1 - 4 | 1x |

5 - 19 | 1.25x |

20 - 49 | 1.5x |

50 - 99 | 1.75x |

100+ | 2x |

Final Node Score is calculated as below,

**Example Scenarios:**

Assuming a perfect Node Validator health ie NH = 1, the following cases illustrate what **Rewards multiplier you get** based on your Node Score;

Node Units (NU) | Node Multiplier (NM) | Node Score |
---|---|---|

1 | 1x | 1 |

5 | 1.25x | 6.25 |

15 | 1.25x | 18.75 |

20 | 1.5x | 30 |

45 | 1.5x | 67.5 |

50 | 1.75x | 87.5 |

80 | 1.75x | 140 |

100 | 2x | 200 |

115 | 2x | 230x |

Note, there is no upper limit on how many node keys a single wallet can own. Only limitation is during the node public sale where a wallet can mint upto 115 keys maximum, although the same wallet can acquire more keys as a KOL or as VC or secondary market.
