There are two ways to gain staking rewards on the Unification network:
- Run a validator node
- Delegate your stake to a node
Running your own node
The End of the Chain operates a node called Big Boss Capital. I use Digital Ocean as the cloud service to run it. It costs $5-10 a month in server costs.
At current prices ($.05), you need around 30k FUND to cover your server costs each month. I would personally suggest that you don't start running your own node until you have over 100k.
Benefits of running your own node:
- Add to the network infrastructure of the Unification Network.
- Vote on proposals and other governance issues.
- Gain commissions from delegated FUND.
Staking your FUND
If you don't have that large of a stake or you don't want to go through the hassle of setting up your own node, you can delegate your FUND.
Benefits of Delegating:
- No minimum to stake your FUND.
- Stake your FUND directly from your wallet.
- Re-delegate your FUND to a new node at any time.
- Unlock your FUND after a 21 day cool down period.
The rest of this guide will cover how to buy and stake FUND to the Unification Network.
