2. What is Master Node Bank?
Master Node Bank is a lending service for cryptocurrency. You deposit your cryptocurrency and after a specified date of maturity you can withdraw the money with interest added. The interest comes from the reward for their supernode. They will create a full node of a cryptocurrency and make a profit from rewards for the full node (it is called “supernode” in NEM). The rewards will be stored and later distributed as interest to customers’ account.
You can earn profit with a full node, but it will require a huge amount of money to set up one by yourself. Master Node Bank currently supports only deposits in NEM (annual return of 1.5% or 2.0％). It is similar to fund management by banks, where you deposit money into your bank account and they return the fund to you with interest added after a specified period. Using a full node is one of the most interesting parts of cryptocurrency and it also contributes to the whole network of a cryptocurrency.
