Terms of service
CrowdNode is owned and operated by the Danish company; CrowdNode ApS, Strynøgade 7, 2100 Copenhagen Ø, Denmark, Registration number (CVR): 39460521
CrowdNode pools deposits into collateral for masternodes in order for members to benefit from masternode rewards.
Masternodes receive rewards, which are distributed according to the following formula:
Fractional payment (after fees) = Reward x (1- CrowdNode Fee) x Member Active Balance / Total Active Balance
Fractional payment (after fees): Actual payment to the customer in digital currency
Reward: Payment from the network to a CrowdNode operated Masternode
CrowdNode Fee: Our fee for the services provided, please see specific fee section
Active Balance: Deposits of 1 Dash or more become part of a member’s active balance after a qualification period of 1 reward from any of the Masternodes hosted by CrowdNode. Reinvested fractional payments are active immediately. It is the intention to gradually increase the qualification period to 3 rewards whenever a stable pool of masternodes have been established.
Member active balance: Active balance for a given member
Total active balance: Active balance for all CrowdNode members
Although we try to maximize the total amount of masternodes operating at any given time, we reserve the right to decide this at our own discretion.
Members are to deposit from an address registered with CrowdNode and an address cannot be changed unless the balance is empty.
When depositing with CrowdNode, the member takes full responsibility of keeping control of the private key(s) to the address(es) registered with CrowdNode and the addresses being sent from.
Deposits sent from adresses unknown to CrowdNode will be sent back to the original input address(es) less the network transaction fee.
Members are able to withdraw their balances at any time, however, CrowdNode reserves the right for a withdrawal processing time of up to two weeks. This is due to security reasons, as our multi-sig authorizations forces us to meet in person in order to take out balances from cold storage.
Withdrawals can only be made to the address registered with CrowdNode.
CrowdNode charges members a fee for its services. The fee is currently 15% of rewards received (i.e. CrowdNode fee = 0.15). CrowdNode reserves the right to change the fee.
Withdrawals and send-backs are charged with the standard network fee.
CrowdNode reserves the right to take an administration fee for services that go beyond those described in these terms.
