Frequently asked Questions

What is a Masternode?

A Masternode is a specially configured wallet that will support the network in more ways than a normal staking wallet. These functions require 10,000 PIVs to start and therefore the user is rewarded for both supporting the network and locking the collateral.

Why should I run a Masternode?

Being a Masternode holder is incentivized by being rewarded more PIV than stakers through the higher block reward. Masternode reward is equal to 3 PIV, while staking reward is 2 PIV per block. Masternode holders also gain the ability to take part in the PIVX DAO by voting on proposals in the network.

What does it mean to lock coins as Masternode collateral?

Your 10,000 PIVX is still yours to completely control, however should you spend the 10K PIV your masternode will stop and you will no longer earn block rewards. The 10,000 locked PIVs simply act as collateral and allow you and your masternode server to secure the PIVX network.

What Are The Minimum Hardware Requirements?

It is recommended that the machine running the PIVX wallet has 2GB RAM, although 1GB RAM with 1GB swap is fine. The PIVX blockchain is only ~18GB, but, for future use it is recommended to have at least 30GB free storage space. Additionally, a single core processor is sufficient to run the network. With these low requirements, it’s possible to run the entire network on a 2GB RAM model Raspberry Pi.
