To connect a node to the Waves Enterprise mainnet, you will need to undergo KYC (Know Your Customer) procedures
Organize a leasing pool
You can also organize a leasing pool. If your node is connected to the mainnet, you can start accepting leases from other WEST token holders. Tokens leased to your node by other users will increase the generating balance of your mining pool.
A leasing pool is a node of the Waves Enterprise main network that participates in maintaining the network and creating blocks, and to which other users can send tokens for leasing in order to receive a proportional share of the node’s remuneration for creating a block. Information about recommended leasing pools is published on official Waves Enterprise resources.
To connect your node to the Waves Enterprise mainnet and start mining, your account balance must be at least 50,000 WEST
To organize a leasing pool based on your node, you need to:
1. Connect a node to the Waves Enterprise main network
2. Send a request to email@example.com
The potential number of recommended leasing pools may be limited, and applications are considered on a competitive basis.
