Nitro Genesis Node and Staking FAQ

1. What is the Genesis Node reward program and what is the reward for it?

The Genesis Node program is a protocol designed to grant NCash holders with a slew of rewards over the next 50 years! As a testament to the loyalty of its community, Nitro Network has opened up a treasure chest of NCash tokens to achieve this goal.

3. Are all NCash holders Genesis Nodes by default?

4.The Genesis Staking Program was extended for two months and has cut the rewards for Genesis Node who staked earlier. Is there any added advantage for early stakers?

The program has been designed to incentivize all NCash holders who together hold approximately 10 Billion NCash as of today. The idea of the Genesis Node Program is to benefit all our long-term supporters. While the number of eligible nodes are very few even after the extension, we believe there is going to be enough for every Genesis Node. Old qualified Genesis Nodes will not have to worry about sharing rewards as it is a community incentive program and its sole objective is to increase the number of beneficiaries for the program. And the decision of extension to this program was taken as many NCash holders were facing difficulties due to smart contract changes and issues with certain exchanges. The new added numbers are marginal and the benefits are huge. Community is at heart of the entire incentive program and so are Genesis Nodes. In future, for added incentives for Genesis Node, Nitro will keep the early stakers up on the wishlist for beneficiaries.
