MNODE Logo

The Masternode market has grown spontaneously in the past year with over 3 billion market capital and hundreds of other masternode enable coins, Chainfund developed MNODE aiming at leveraging the benefit of this new technology.

MNODE is a tokenized Masternode fund, featuring:

  • 1-click investment experience with all assets are tokenized by a single MASTER token, intuitive platform management
  • Zero fee structure
  • Power of Syndication that enable diversified portfolio and access to maximum bonus rewards
  • Fast reward distribution with rewards are credited to staked wallets bi-weekly

MNODE ICO[edit]

MNODE Private Sale

MNODE is a zero-fee, close-ended, tokenized Masternode fund that provides investors with diversified exposure to passive coin income. A Masternode provides key services to a blockchain for which it receives block rewards. However, Masternodes are often inaccessible to the average retail investor, as they require large initial capital investments and technical knowledge. The Masternode Fund is a new type of investment vehicle: by purchasing the Masternode Fund Token (MASTER), investors are entitled to receive passive income obtained from a balanced portfolio of selected blockchain technology projects.

It leverages Masternodes, a state-of-the-art blockchain technology which offers numerous benefits to its parent blockchain including transaction privacy, instant transactions, and efficient governance. More precisely, the fund will leverage its expertise in blockchain technologies to overcome the technical difficulty in setting up, running, and monitoring these masternodes. The fund can fulfill the collateral minimum requirement of Masternode coins that an individual could not afford alone. The investment in Masternode coins will rely extensively on data analytics and financial engineering to maximize ROIs with a stable token price. Uniquely, the fund has zero management fee and zero performance fee, whereby all costs are covered by collecting a fraction of the block rewards. [7][8]
