Become an Operator

The Mars Operator Program is a decentralized network of automated accounts that run the THRIVE game engine on the WAX blockchain. In exchange for performing operations for the engine, they receive MARTIA rewards.

In order to participate, you must have WAX tokens in your wallet. You will use these to stake CPU, which is a resource that allows the wallet to process transactions. It locks the WAX tokens similar to other token staking mechanisms, but you can unlock it and reclaim those tokens at any time.

There are two ways to participate in the program:

Stake CPU to a Community Operator Farm (Easy)

There are a handful of community-run operator farms that make it safe and easy to delegate staked CPU and receive MARTIA rewards. They typically take a % fee of the MARTIA rewards in exchange for operating the service.

ZombieFarm (by zombiedev)

ZombieFarm works by staking the desired amount of CPU to the wallet operatorfarm and you'll receive the rewards then each day directly to your wallet - no claiming needed. ZombieFarm takes 25% of the MARTIA fee for running the service. Here is how to participate:

Visit, and navigate to Wallet → Manage CPU / NET

Fill out the inputs like this:

  • Receiver of Stake: operatorfarm
  • Amount of WAX to Stake for CPU: The amount of WAX you want to stake
  • Amount of WAX to Stake for NET: 0

Note: Do not use CPU rental services, as those would receive the reward.

Then click the STAKE button and sign the transaction.

Now, you can head over to to see your rewards come in. The page should look something like this:

Bookmark this page and check it whenever you want!

If at any time you want to get your WAX back, you can unstake CPU here: WAX Block™

Just look up the operatorfarm account and click “Unstake“.

ACK Thrive Program (By ACK Community)

The ACK Thrive Program is unique because it is part of one of the most vibrant communities connected to Thirve: ACK. By participating in the ACK Thrive Program, users can optimize the use of their CPU resources to maximize MARTIA earnings. CPU delegation contributes to the efficient processing of transactions on the WAX blockchain, while retaining ownership of their WAX and continuing to receive WAX stake rewards.

You can participate by going here:

Click the “+ Delegate CPU“ Button towards the top.

Then add the WAX you would like to use to stake CPU:

Note: Do not use CPU rental services, as those would receive the reward.

If at any time you want to get your WAX back, you can unstake CPU here: WAX Block™

Just look up the ackthrivemas account and click “Unstake“.

Set up your own Operator Node (Advanced)

The benefit of setting up your own Operator Node is to recieve 100% of the MARTIA rewards. It typically takes around 10-15 minutes to set up.

Warning: do not proceed with this if you do not understand the advanced features of the WAX blockchain. Never share your private keys with anyone, and do not do this with a main account or one that has assets that you cannot risk losing.
