There is a growing subset of cryptocurrencies known as masternode coins. Masternode coins operate similarly to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies but with one notable
difference; they utilize masternodes as opposed to full nodes. This offers a range of functionality not provided by other cryptocurrencies including instant payments, anonymous
transactions, and more.
As a reward for providing these valuable services to the network, masternode operators are compensated in the form of block rewards, similar to cryptocurrency miners. For instance with the masternode coin Dash masternode operators earn the same reward as miners, or 45% of the total block reward.
