Divi Nodes - A Tiered Masternode Economy
August 23rd, 2023 Notes:
Masternodes were advised to transition to the Validator Vault, often referred to as the "Staking Vault."
Please refer to this link for details on the Divi Foundation's updates .
Why use a tiered system?
|The masternode systems of most coins use only one type of node, meaning coin owners need to set up multiple computers with multiple servers to maximize their earning potential.
|Within the Divi Project, there are five-tiered entry points for the masternode network. Earning DIVI at each Divi Node level improves linearly with the number of coins. For example, the Gold Divi Node has ten times more opportunities to earn coins than Copper. However, Gold also includes a bonus opportunity of 10%.|
This progressive increase in DIVI earning opportunities encourages more participation within the community.
Tiered Divi Node Opportunities
To deploy a Divi Node, first, a Coin Owner needs to acquire or earn enough DIVI to meet the requirements for that tier. The Coin Owner allocates their coins to prove the intent for service in running a Divi Node.
It’s vital to note that the coins never leave the Coin Owners' custody. It is possible to spend or move the DIVI at any time by simply deciding to stop and dismantle your node.
With a single type or level of masternode, a coin owner can only increase their earning potential by continuously deploying single nodes. With Divi Nodes, upgrading to a higher tier increases your opportunity by 5% more than the equivalent quantity of DIVI in single copper nodes. For example, a Copper Node costs 100k DIVI and a Silver is 300K. However, you get an extra 5% increase in opportunity on a Silver vs three Copper. Gold increases again by 10%, Platinum 15%, and Diamond 20%.
Keep in mind a higher tier also uses less hosting than a combo of lower tiers, so when you can, you would upgrade to get the added opportunity to earn and less hosting expenditure.
Tiered masternodes increase how much you earn and reduce your expenses. This makes running a Divi Node more lucrative, with an easier on-ramp for all coin owners.
