What is a Validation Node, how to activate it with the Node Vouchers and use it?

Node Validator NaaS vouchers are available at the inPersona shop, until quantities last.

The Validator Node is a native function of VCS blockchain network.

Normally setting up and running a node is a very complicated and time-consuming process so we introduced NaaS (Node as a Service) which means all those parts (Node setup, maintenance, updates etc) will be handled by Subhosting.

Users that want to be involved in the Validation process can purchase the service and just stake 400.000 $VSC and enjoy earning a yearly 44% APR.

To activate a node:

1. On the InPersona Profile >"Vouchers & Promos"copy the Node Voucher you intend to use.
