“Blockchain Masternode Servers
A Masternode is a computer running a digital wallet 24/7. Specific wallet settings and configurations must be set in order to turn an ordinary digital wallet into a masternode. Once the masternode is running, it powers the project’s network by processing transactions, mixing coins, and often offers voting rights.
Masternodes help support the network by providing faster transaction times, anonymous transactions, and decentralized operations. Additionally, each project has an additional features to their particular masternode configuration. As incentive for investing in the necessary amount of coins or tokens required for a masternode, configuring, and setting up your masternode, and hosting the masternode, masternodes pay their owners in coin or token rewards, based upon their portion of ownership for each block completed on the blockchain (less masternodes, higher reward per individual owner). Oftentimes, masternode owners are also given voting rights for development and management decisions for the cryptocurrency. The more masternodes are supporting a cryptocurrency, the faster, more stable, and more secure their network is.”
