June 6, 2019 validator roundtable - audio recording

Hello! I hope it’s okay that I share the audio recording from today’s validator roundtable:

Hopefully the audio quality is sufficient. Please let me know if there are any issues.


Thanks Gavin! Next meeting we’ll switch to zoom so can record video as well

I understand double signing protection is also a concern that need to be taken care of. Can anyone tell me how liveness is treated by Solana in order to have a clearer picture about validator uptime ?
Thanks !

We’re planning to define uptime over a time interval as: (number of slots a given validator voted on)/(total slots during that time interval).

Not sure if I understood your question correctly, so please let me know if this doesn’t answer it for you.

We don’t slash for liveness, and our vote signing proxy can be extended to prevent double singing.

Are you running more than 1 host?

If there is no slashing for liveness, why would you run more than one validator ?

if you are down, you stop earning rewards
