We HIGHLY recommend to run Energi Core Node on a VPS, as your machine's IP will be displayed publicly in our Masternodes list.
In order to run a Masternode you need to have at least 1001 NRG:
1000 NRG which will be allocated as the Masternode Collateral;
1 NRG which will be partially used to cover the transaction fees required to deposit collateral and announce the Masternode.
You can add in multiples of 1000 NRG to a maximum of 100000 NRG, at which point it will be needed to deploy another Masternode for any additional collateral.
