Masternode networks are the future for real Blockchain consensus.

Passive income has quickly become a cornerstone of cryptocurrency investing, with multiple options available to savvy investors looking to hedge their largely speculative bets. This passive income can come in a few different forms, including mining (PoW), staking (PoS), profit-share tokens and masternodes.

Cryptocurrency mining, while a staple of the industry, has suffered from a number of profitability-killing factors. First, as more and more mining farms join these networks, the network weight increases so much that the average amateur miner doesn’t stand much to gain. Additionally, as new ASIC technology is released targeting algorithms that were traditionally immune, coins become more difficult to mine and run further risk of 51% attacks. Together, when considering these factors, mining begins to lose its appeal given its heavy hardware startup costs.
