The Planetary Node sale for Spider Tanks kicked off on August 29th, with the first tier of Nodes selling rapidly. Owning a Planetary Node allows the owner to host matches, earning SILK tokens as a reward. Node owners will likely be especially happy to hear that Spider Tanks just announced their official release date!

Planetary Node operators can earn semi-passive income in the form of SILK tokens. By owning a Planetary Node license, running the Node software package, maintaining a connection to the Spider Tanks system, and making sure that your server is in the queue, Node operators can serve as hosts for the match, earning Victory Points every time. Once the match is completed, the Node goes back into the queue at the end of the line. Though Planetary Node owners do have the option of upgrading, allowing their system to occupy more than one slot in the queue. At the end of the day, everyone with Victory Points accumulated shares in SILK rewards from a common pool of tokens.

But the first requirement is owning a Planetary Node License.
