Translations: Forging and leasing/4/en
Forging is a key part of the process that validates and secures all transactions on the Ardor network and its child chains. In other words, this is the decentralized security system of the Ardor network- each of the forging nodes/computers are competing to validate each block of transactions. No new Ardor coins are created in this process, however, people participating in the forging process (“forgers”) receive the transaction fees (paid in Ardor) from each block of transactions that they solve. The only requirements to participate in the forging process are that you must have 1000 Ardor in your account for at least 24 hours prior to beginning to forge. Your node/computer can only participate in the forging process when it is online. If you can’t meet one of these requirements, then the leasing process described later in this guide may be more appropriate for you.
