Forger Nodes for Horizen EON

Forger nodes help to increase the security and decentralization of the EON Network, Horizen’s EMV-compatible sidechain. To become an EON Forger, a user must lock a certain amount of coins. The higher the amount staked, the greater the chances of being able to create (forge) a block.
