Blockdaemon now offers masternode staking support for XDC holders


Blockdaemon, a global leader in blockchain infrastructure, now offers Masternode staking support for XDC holders. Stakers with 10,000,000 XDC can host their own Masternode through Blockdaemon. 

This announcement is important for institutional XDC holders. It offers them a new avenue for participating in network security and consensus. This enhances the accessibility of staking on the XDC Network amongst sophisticated investors. 

An Overview of XDC Network

The XDC Network is an EVM-compatible Layer 1 network. It offers a robust foundation for developing decentralized applications. This compatibility ensures seamless integration with Ethereum-based tools and services. It provides a familiar environment for developers - significantly enhancing the network's appeal and accessibility.

At the heart of the XDC Network is its delegated proof-of-stake (XDPoS) mechanism. This consensus model offers several advantages. It enables quick transactions, and ensures low gas fees. Additionally, it supports a high transaction throughput - vital for scalability. It caters to the growing demands of modern blockchain applications.

The XDC Network's enterprise-grade features set it apart for business-ready use cases. For example, it is well-suited for real-world asset tokenization. This process involves converting physical assets into digital tokens on the blockchain. The network's high performance and low costs make it ideal for this purpose. These features enable businesses to tokenize a wide range of assets.

The XDC Network combines compatibility with Ethereum, an efficient consensus mechanism, and enterprise-grade capabilities. This unique combination positions the XDC Network as a leading choice for developers and enterprises. 

Masternodes in the XDC Network 

Masternodes play a pivotal role in the XDC Network. They are responsible for proposing and voting on blocks. To become a Masternode, a significant commitment is required. Operators must lock 10,000,000 XDC tokens. This requirement serves multiple purposes. It ensures that Masternode operators have a vested interest in the network's integrity. It also discourages malicious activities by raising the stakes for the operators.

Security in the XDC Network is paramount, especially against malicious behaviors. The network employs advanced forensics detection and monitoring systems. These tools identify and mitigate potential security threats. In cases of detected malicious behavior, the network enforces strict penalties. This includes slashing the locked tokens of the offending Masternode. This measure acts as a strong deterrent. It upholds the network's security and trustworthiness.
