All nodes must stake 100,000 RBNT in order to participate. This acts as a disincentive to malicious behaviour. If a node is found to have acted maliciously, its stake can be slashed.

Before registering a node, the staking amount must be paid. This will be done automatically for the first 600 nodes because part of their sign up bonus will be automatically staked on their behalf.

To do so, call: function deposit (address payee) public payable on the StakingEscrowUpgradable contract located at the following address:




To ensure the transaction can be verified please use the same public address which you will select to receive rewards.

To pay the staking amount you will need to fund your account, for more information about RBNT and getting it, see native currency.
