Technical make-up of team (elaborate on no. of dev ops engineers, experience, etc.)
Our team consists of 8 decentralized participants from all over the world:
2 DevOps Engineers
3 Full-featured developers
Years of experience
We have more than 10 years of experience in the field of high technology. In particular, we have 3 years of experience in managing nodes and validators.
What other networks are you running validators for?
Currently, 37 blockchains are being tested, such as Sui, Solana, NYM, Umee, Gravity Bridge and others.
Based on your participation in any previous testnets, mainnets, are there any best practices to be aware of? What are some things that made previous testnets, mainnet launches successful and/or things to avoid that have gone poorly?
We have experience in consulting projects on the issues of uninterrupted and efficient test networks. We have organized test networks for projects such as IslamicCoin (HAQQ), DeFund, Empower, Eywa, etc.
Based on our experience, we can say that the most important factor of a successful launch is a high-quality selection of validators and organized interaction with them.
Do you have a validator voting framework and process?
We have several voting monitoring systems in networks that check new votes every hour, and it is also checked whether our validator has voted in this or that vote by using the API and TG.
