Entity name and location
We are an international team based in China Shanghai

Infrastructure location
Thailand, Phuket

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X 16 Cores, 128gb RAM, NVMe 3.84tb
OVH, Ikoula - France. AMD Ryzen 9 3900x, 64Gb RAM, 1TB Nvme

Technical make-up of team (elaborate on no. of dev ops engineers, experience, etc.)
Our team consists of 10 people:
Beckend, Fronted, Design, Devops Engineer

We have been working in the blockchain field for more than 5 years.
We understand pretty well how the Cosmos SDK-based blockchain works. In order to realize your ambitious plans, you need the best validators to maintain the health of the network. We ready to pass the selection and prove myself from the best side. An ambitious project needs the best validators.

What other networks are you running validators for?
In we operate validators for 30 networks. Some of the big names include SEI, MINA, The Graph Protocol, Agoric, and many other Cosmos-based SDK chains. The full list can be found in our explorer

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?
StakeMe helps web 3.0 projects to test their product, increase the number of participants in the tesnet, and provide the most efficient development support with the help of special tools.
There were many tasks that we successfully completed
(launching a validator, writing scripts, moving a validator, deploying a contract, spamming transactions, finding the optimal settings for the validator, maintaining high uptime, using sentry nodes, etc)
We wrote many guide for everyone who wants to take part in the projects.
We are engaged in the development of explorers, autodelegation scripts, rpc/snapshots, tx load testing, support.Find bug, help comunity and many more.

Our developers are now actively creating a new self-written explorer (Statistically about 15000 visits per day), we initially support Cosmos. We can also work individually with other blockchains. Right now we are helping projects with creating useful utilities for validators. Basic things: provide a node, create useful utilities. Useful utilities for projects: Faucet, Telegram bot (for notifying validator nodes and monitoring the server), Gentx checker (our powerful utility that completely checks genesis/ file and gentx validators). Thanks to gentx checker (Cosmos) we have helped many projects in mainnet (like Teritori).

Do you have a validator voting framework and process?
We have a framework that notifies about new proposals from the blockchain. We do the voting manually. we strive to ensure that the voting process is fair, transparent and in line with the values and goals of the network.
In addition, our explorer provides a voting notification tool. This module allows users to see active voting on a specific network.

Are you planning to play any additional roles in the dYdX ecosystem (e.g. market maker, trader, indexer, front-end, other)?
In addition to validator services, Stakeme offers a wide range of products and services specifically designed for the active dYdX community. We have already integrated DYDX into our exporter

We are also ready to offer our smart faucet to the team to easily receive test tokens, and to help them develop the project

Are there other products or services you want to highlight that could be relevant for dYdX?
Our main products: 20k+ active users per day 30k+ active users per day
A little bit of statistics :
-Faucet to withstand high loads, works well;
-99.99% success of the faucet issuance;
-More than 20k+ active users per day;
We have extensive experience validating various networks, and also have a great community with discord 140K users. (STAKEME)
