Masternodes are servers established by community members that perform functions such as processing fast transactions on a decentralized network. It is used to complete unique functions in ways that regular nodes cannot. Masternodes are a very important layer to the MasterStake Coin blockchain and governance. Masternodes are privately owned by individuals or groups in the community known as MasterStake Governors. The node itself resides on a virtual private server, and to own one you must have 15,000 to 500,000 Master to wager as collateral. Master Governors earn MasterStake Coins as an incentive for maintaining a masternode. The coins they earn are newly minted coins that originate from the blockchain itself. Masternodes earn 80% ~ 95% of the block reward that is generated from the creation of each new block. Which masternode is selected to get the block reward is a random process that increases in complexity as the number of masternodes
