Masternode: How much ADA needed?


#1

Can someone provide the amount of ADA that will be needed to run a masternode?

I’m not referring to staking, but running a masternode. I’m new to masternodes and I’m curious about what ADA may require.


#2

Cardano doesnt have Masternodes. Instead we will have staking pools…


#3

Many of the details are still being worked out. I see lots of progress being made but nothing we can release yet. Currently they are discussing privacy concerns and deciding on solutions.


#4

Any update on the availability of staking pools? Thank you for your time:)

minimum ADA requirement to run stake pool?

@jason80 Hi, as far as we understand the minimum requirement is 1 Lovelace (smallest unit of ADA -
essentially no minimum). Of course with such a low amount, it would be very unlikely to be selected as slot leader. Therefore with a small stake it is best to join a larger stake pool. IOHK should release further details soon!

@NinjaPool_io Thank for the info. how the slot leader selected?


#8

@jason80 Hi, Slot leader selection is an integral part of Cardano’s Ouroboros proof of stake protocol and is fully explained here: cardanodocs.com/cardano/proof-of-stake/
