Translations: Forging and leasing/17/en
With those points in mind, let’s consider the security reasons for leasing. If you are forging in your own wallet, you might consider setting up a second address and leasing your forging power to this second address. This way, the node that is online forging does not have actual control of your coins. You can take your security one step further by setting up a cold wallet using Sigbro that uses offline signatures to broadcast transactions to the Ardor network. The coins you spend can be in the cold wallet, while your “hot wallet” is online with an Available Balance of 0 but an Effective Balance of the leased balance.
