Advanced Options

Become a Relay Node

A Relay Node has a complete copy of the blockchain

Follow the above guide but whenever it says bridgechain, change it to digitalgem such as digitalgem relay:start

Becoming a Delegate

A Delegate has a complete copy of the blockchain and can get 1 Digital Gem per block of forging rewards.

Potentially, delegates can earn up to 16 Digital Gems per block. Right now, we can have up to 150 transactions per block. The transaction fee for every transaction is 0.1 Digital Gem so

150 x 0.1  = 15 Digital Gems through transaction fees + 1 Digital Gem forging reward = 16 potential Digital Gems per block.

Staking

Although not necessary due to the low inflation rate, if you want forging rewards, feel free to stake your Digital Gems with a delegate by using the vote tab on the wallet.
