The Idea Behind Staking as Incentivizing: Comparison of Stacking and Shared Masternode Services

Understanding The Concept Of Incentivizing

Nowadays, the majority of people in today’s cryptosphere who are active players especially on social media would rather prefer that they get a reward for the role they play in stabilizing a platform.

People in general now expect something in return and now savors the notion of partaking in profit sharing no matter how little. According to Connor Blenkinsop, incentivizing:

“encourages loyalty to a platform and drives participation. Miners and validators — the people who make transactions run smoothly on the blockchain — are also getting rewarded through the contributions they make to a network, and crypto enthusiasts with expertise are being incentivized to uncover security flaws through bounties or to embrace new coins through airdrops”.

The concept of incentivizing is an all-encompassing niche or innovation that is now widely being used in the cryptosphere to drive inclusion and better participation.

Staking And Shared Masternode Service

Staking (Proof of Stake) is a relatively new consensus algorithm for some digital currencies. It creates new blocks that are added to the blockchain. Staking posits that a person can validate the transactions on a particular currency based on the quantity of the coin he holds. Staking was introduced as a viable alternative to mining in validating transactions within a block.

Mining requires a lot of computing power and utilizes a very high amount of electricity. This deficiency is corrected by staking which only allows for one to validate transaction just up to the amount of coins he carries thus reducing the competitiveness proof of work battles.

Masternode is a crypto full node (computer wallet) that supports the network by hosting an entire copy of the coin’s ledger in real time. In return, the Masternode will receive crypto coins as a reward.

To run a Masternode, a staker must have the minimum amount of coin required, a value which differs from one coin to the other.

These coins could pose a very high initial financial demand but this effect can be cushioned with Shared masternode service which can be tagged as an incentive introduced into staking or the masternode concept to help reduce the financial involvements needed to run or operate a masternode at a given point in time.

Comparing Staking And Shared Masternode

The comparison is mild and is embodied in the ownership discrepancies. Staking as a proof of stake venture can be highly financially demanding. Considering that staking of Dash Coin which requires a minimum of 1000 Dash coins to set up, such a venture might be unattractive.

This unattractiveness is what Shared masternode comes to eliminate as it affords anyone the opportunity to be part of a masternode with any amount he or she has especially when it's below the minimum required for that particular project.

The shared masternode service usually involves two or more investors all benefitting from the potential profit opportunity presented by the coin-serving as the incentive.


The concept of incentivizing is pushing new frontiers in the cryptosphere. Now projects attach incentives which takes different forms at different times to inspire community participation. Airdrops, bounties, and bonuses are amongst the popular incentives that abound today.
