How to Lease your WAVES

Leasing or LPoS

LPoS (Leased Proof of Stake) gives you the opportunity to make the network stronger and safer while receiving more WAVES and MRT as a reward for doing so. It's the so called "leasing". Most people don't have 10.000 WAVES to run their own node, so they are still able to help the whole project through leasing their WAVES to someone who is able to run a node. Most big nodes pay in a one week cycle to their users.

If I lease, do I still receive token airdrops like WBTC or RiptoBux?

Yes, you will still receive token airdrops like WBTC, WCT or RiptoBux. You only lease your WAVES but they are still in your Wallet.
