The number of masternodes keeps on increasing on a daily basis, but not all will be growing at the same rate. As would be expected, some will grow faster than others and different masternodes have different ROI.
The growth of a masternode, like of any other coin, can be evaluated by looking at a number of factors including the number of people joining their community and the number of nodes being added per month in the network. That provides an indication of the number of people expressing interest in a given masternode project. The growth of a project and interest by community might be an indication of the project's growth potential (including future price and value) and/or as a result of its added or upcoming features.
However, the market capitalization and volume of a given coin can provide an indication of the liquidity around a node.
These are some of the metrics evaluated by Hack Crypto in his recent YouTube evaluation of the fastest masternodes this year by looking at their monthly growth. Here are some of the fastest growing masternodes according to his listing.
Altbet has been on operation for the shortest duration (2 months) than all the compared coins in the list but is adding around 260 nodes per month and 2694 people on its social platforms. A 50 percent month-month growth puts it as the fastest growing masternode in the list considering the duration it has been on operation.
The coin is therefore fastest in growth in terms of node growth rate.
The platform has ABET coin which is spent on a betting platform. One is required to have 1,000 ABET in order to run a masternode on the network. Its masternodes are placed in a ranking with the first node on the ranking gaining 80% of the block reward and after so being rewarded is automatically relocated to end of ranking.
