Despite consuming much less power than other mining devices on the market, Node is not less powerful by any means. It is something else entirely.
Node earns crypto by powering a new type of protocol (Proof of Stake, for our fellow nerds out there), one that consumes substantially less energy. This means hash rates don’t apply, and you’re not in a duck-swinging battle to see who’s got the biggest, baddest supercomputer.
Therefore, Node needs just 1.5kwh a day to run, so if you live in the USA, it will cost you less than 8 cents to keep Node running all day long. Node is the most low maintenance housemate/pet you’ve ever had.
