Storage Provider Incentives/Bonuses
We pleased to announce incentives and bonuses to encourage more capacity on the network. Providers represent a better Masternode, while they do not participate in consensus, providers do lock up “collateral” coins to verify the storage they are making available. The collateral protects storage customers from deduplication and other possible attacks. At the end of a contract period, providers receive all their collateral back plus storage rent income. All that is required is a computer that remains online with average bandwidth and reasonable spare hard drive storage. You don’t pay anyone to become a provider and the more providers, the more the project/network grows.
There is a current bonus for new signups of 100 SCP coins. Once you have set up a provider instance, fill out the application below.
