What is Forging?

            Forging is the process of generating new Nxt and Ardor blocks.
            A block is a container of 0 or more transactions, blocks are generated every 1 minute on average.
            The forger of the next block receives the transaction fees for this block.

            Q: Who can forge new blocks?
            A: Any account with a balance of more than 1000 NXT or 1000 ARDR vested over 1440 blocks (approx. 24 hours).

            Q: Why is my wallet showing "Not Forging" indicator?
            A: Because you are not forging, either because your balance is insufficient or because you did not start forging since your last node restart.

            Q: Should I use an account with a lot of NXT for forging?
            A: No, you should lease your balance to another account and forge with the other account see
