- Cryptocurrencies are continuing their expansion into our day to day lives. There are over 2000 cryptocurrencies out there for investors and enthusiasts to speculate on. Many cryptocurrencies have an operational model that goes beyond speculation and offer an immediate ROI for securing and participating in the decentralized network and operation of that cryptocurrency. That is where masternodes and staking come into play! These cryptocurrencies are more for the medium to long term investor and not for swing or day traders.
