# Lease Waves Tokens
LPoS (Leased Proof of Stake) gives you the opportunity to make the network stronger and safer while receiving Waves and other assets as a reward for doing so. This is called Leasing.
Most people don't have 1000 WAVES to run their own node, but they still can help the project by leasing their Waves to someone who is able to run a node.
The biggest nodes pay to their users in one week cycle. The LPoS reward depends on the conditions of the selected pool. We do not regulate the payment process, so before using LPoS service, please carefully read the terms of payment and do your investigation of the pool that you want to use. The terms can vary between LPOS pools.
Please use the list of nodes – forum.wavesplatform.com/c/pools.
