Thanks to the IRIS Network for giving us this opportunity to present ourselves. The following is a quick introduction to validator.network. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or need some clarifications.
Who are we?
Validator.network is operating out of Copenhagen, Denmark. We are a highly skilled and dedicated team with decades of experience in the fields of software development, highly available IT infrastructure, cryptography and financial services.
We have been following the development of the IRIS technology stack since its inception, and successfully been running genesis validators on both the IRIS and Cosmos Networks.
Why stake with us?
We ranked #3 in the adverserial “Game of Stakes” testnet, which was organized by the Cosmos Network (1). During the testnet we demonstrated an ability to keep our validator secure and running, even during several network-wide attacks that took out other validators.
Our validator service is running on a highly-available and resilient infrastructure based on a hybrid architecture consisting of cloud scalability and local data centers for physical security. A detailed technical description of the setup can be found at our web site.
Our operational focus is on preventing double signing, while simultaneously maintaining a high uptime.
We peer privately with other proven validators, which means that a dedicated attack against us is unlikely to succeed in removing us from the network.
To be completely aligned with the interest of people delegating to us, we’re delegating our own IRIS holdings exclusively to our own service.
