New Swarm Masternodes put you in the driver seat

Welcome to your Swarm Newsletter for August 13th, 2018.

Swarm has made a big step toward the full decentralization of the network by introducing Swarm Masternodes. Anyone who acquires a masternode — which is a compute resource that runs the Swarm core software and validates transactions — will have a say in how the network operates and evolves. And that’s how you democratize finance. To ensure fast deployment of the masternodes, Swarm is launching a lucrative incentive program. Check out the press release and the blog post by Philipp for all the details.
