As an IOST Node partner, votes are needed to survive (quite funny, you say). To become an IOST elected node and receive benefits — shared benefits both to voters and Node owners — one needs a minimum of 2.1 million IOST votes.

The distributed reward for an elected Node is not for the owner alone, but also to be shared by all voters according to the proportion of votes they control for the node. Other benefits include Quarterly rewards to be enjoyed as a voter.

As a new node partner just beginning this journey, we will lay out how to vote for IOST Watch using different mediums and in easy steps.
