On 24 July, we are launching a special program that will last eight weeks and will stimulate the development of the network of nodes that underpins the Waves ecosystem.
Waves platform is developing and the number of transactions on the network is growing. With the release of the updated RIDE smart contracts programming language, we have already seen a sharp increase in network activity.
One of the most important components of Waves Platform’s decentralised network is its full nodes. It is critical for us to maintain and develop the network, creating profitable conditions for Waves node operators. We are therefore launching a new program that will stimulate the development of the network and accelerate growth of revenues for node holders. However, since we are planning significant investments in nodes’ stakes, access to the support programme will only be given for the winners of a fair and transparent challenge!
Anyone can take part in the challenge, but the main requirement for participation is, of course, to run a working full node. The core task of this challenge is to increase your stake by any available means, but mainly by attracting new WAVES leases. The node that achieves the most significant increase will receive a 1,000,000 WAVES addition to its leasing stake from the Waves team for one year, with the intention that they keep all additional profits generated by this stake. There will be three overall prizes:
– 1st place: 1,000,000 WAVES
– 2nd place: 600,000 WAVES
– 3rd place: 400,000 WAVES
From Wednesday 24 July, we will begin making weekly snapshots of Waves node stakes, based on the ‘Average Gen. Balance’ from the community-driven website http://dev.pywaves.org. We will monitor stake growth, compare nodes’ performance and score each node. The snapshot period will last for eight weeks, ending on ...
