What is a Validator

A Validator is responsible for relaying transactions and proposing, verifying, and finalizing blocks on Celo, alongside the validators in its validator group. We take our role as a Validator seriously and strive to provide the best service possible to those staking on our platform and the Celo community as a whole. We know the maintenance and security of the network as a whole falls on us and are eager to serve this exciting role on Celo.

Staking With Consensus

We truly appreciate you locking your cGold with us as we work to help rearchitect the future of digital payments. In exchange for running a highly available, multi-region hybrid architecture for Celo and actively participating as community members, we currently take a 10% commission on our block rewards and pass the rest along to you, our delegates.

Our Technical Specifications

Our Celo Deployment utilizes a multi-cloud, multi-region architecture with our Validator node being ran out of our secure, data center infrastructure with the following specs: 4 cores @ 3.4 GHz, 8 GB RAM, 100 GB SSD, 100 MB internet. We leverage both the cloud and our own physical infrastructure, for the remaining necessary proxy and attestation servers as well as backups to ensure our validator is highly available and resilient at all times.
