Masternodes and Staking
The easiest way to break into the crypto-coin mining scene is to get your feet wet with some simple "staking". This is earning interest on your held balance, so long as you keep them accumulating without any withdraws, although you may continue to horde.
1) Install a the wallet
2) Deposit the required amount of coins
3) Wait for coins to mature
4) Earn interest
You may install a wallet on a local device/machine or most people use a VPS like Amazon.
Some blockchain cryptos are configured in such a manner as to shield your coins from attacks on the hosted live "hot wallet". That connects directly to your local wallet, a "cold wallet".
