Wethio Master

General

Exploring WethioMaster

WethioMaster is a governance-based decentralized app (Dapp) featuring a professional UI and keeping users informed about the list of Masternodes and Masternode Candidates. Through WethioMaster, users can vote for Masternodes, check Masternode performance statistics, and deposit up to 17K ZYN to be eligible for becoming a Masternode Candidate.

How do I access WethioMaster?

You can access WethioMaster in 3 simple steps:

  1. Visit WethioMaster.

  2. Click 'Login' on the top-right corner

  3. Select your preferable way to login There are various ways to access WethioMaster, such as via WethioWallet, Ledger, Trezor, Metamask, TrustWallet, or Private Key/Mnemonic.

What does the 'capacity' of a Candidate/Masternode mean?

The capacity of a candidate/masternode refers to the 17K ZYN initial deposit as well as the total amount of ZYN the candidate receives as votes.

With these numbers on WethioMaster, how do I figure out between performing and non-performing nodes?

To do so:

  1. Visit WethioMaster

  2. Click on a candidate to open its page

  3. Scroll down to the 'Masternode Rewards' section. You will see a 'Sign number', 'Slashing history' under the Masternode Rewards section.

  4. Check the numbers provided in the section to determine a performing or non-performing node.

In each epoch, Masternodes can sign a maximum of 60 blocks. A performing Masternode initiates around 60 transactions in an epoch. Further, we calculate the rewards based on the signed transactions as well.

What should I understand with a 'checkpoint'?

A checkpoint is defined as a reward distribution parameter. For each iteration of 900 blocks (called epoch), a checkpoint is established after which the rewards are distributed among Masternodes and Voters.

For each iteration of 900 blocks (called epoch), a checkpoint block is created, which implements only reward works. The Masternodes are responsible to create blocks in sequential order, scan and verify all the created blocks in an epoch, and also calculate signatures.

Additionally, ZYN holders must be aware of the fact that those who have unvoted before the checkpoint block are not entitled to receive any shared reward in the Staking Reward portion.

How to stop running my node?

In case you want to stop running your node, follow these steps:

  1. Visit WethioMaster, the governance app

  2. Go to the candidate details page

  3. Click the ‘Resign’ button to resign and unlock your locked funds

One month post-resignation, you will be able to withdraw your funds. (1,296,000 blocks).

After these steps, your masternode will stop operating completely.

Features

Network Status

Network Status on WethioMater provides essential information about various parameters such as what a current block is, its active time, the number of blocks in an epoch, and the next checkpoint (end of epoch).

Candidates List

Anyone who stakes sufficient ZYN to run a masternode gets placed in the candidates’ list including users who have resigned to run a masternode. A candidate can become a Masternode and earn rewards by becoming one of the 157 most voted Masternode Candidates. Voters will refer to this list to determine and select Masternode Candidates they wish to stake their ZYN for.

Tip: If you stake/vote any top voter masternode candidates, it might lower your rewards. It is because the rewards that are distributed to voters as per staked coins are inversely proportional to the amount of ZYN staked for a specific Masternode Candidate.

Voting

WethioMaster lets voters earn rewards by staking their ZYN for a candidate during the election of a Masternode Candidate. Voters who want to stake their coins for a masternode or masternodes to earn rewards can vote through WethioMaster.

  1. Visit WethioMaster

  2. Click the ‘Vote’ button.

It will redirect them to a page that enables them to cast their votes through staking with ZYN.

  1. Click the ‘Unvote’ button visible next to a masternode's page

  2. Enter the amount of ZYN you want to unvote.

Warning: When you have initiated the ‘Unvote’ process, your ZYN will remain locked in the voting smart-contract for 48 hours before you can withdraw them.

General Information

Metrics
