Exploring Node Sales: A New Way of Fundraising, Token Distribution, and Network Startup

In the ever-evolving blockchain and cryptocurrency landscape, Node Sales are emerging as a popular fundraising and token distribution method before mainnet launches. Node Sales allow community members to buy "Node Licenses" to operate nodes, which are crucial for network security and decentralization, often sold as NFTs. What are they and how do they work? This article explains that Node License holders receive token rewards for operating nodes or can delegate the task to Node-as-a-Service providers like InfStones. Node Sale projects typically allocate a significant portion of tokens to reward node operators, providing lucrative opportunities, exemplified by XAI Games' 50% token allocation for node operators. InfStones plays a vital role as a Node-as-a-Service provider, facilitating the process for those who prefer not to maintain their own nodes. You can read more about it here.
