    Light client — user nodes developed in the blockchain with minimal load. 

    They are required so that users, through a smartphone or other device, can synchronize with the relevant chain of the blockchain and get the necessary information. For example, to check the balance of your wallet or to make a transaction of funds.

    The opposite of a light client is a full node, which stores all the information about the blockchain and runs only from a powerful device.
