stakefish - The leading staking service provider for blockchain projects

We believe in a future with multiple public blockchains supporting multiple widely adopted applications and currencies. Our primary mission is to provide the infrastructure backbone for these projects.

With over a year in operation, we have been running validator nodes on the Cosmos Hub (and won the Game of Stakes), Tezos, Chainlink, Algorand, The OAN (Aion), Kusama, Storj, IRIS Network, Kava, Cardano, Edgeware, Celo and Band Protocol. We also have nodes on various testnets: Solana, Matic, Harmony, Persistence, NEAR Protocol, NuCypher, Oasis Labs, Centrifuge Chain and Elrond.

stakefish is a validator founded by Wang Chun, co-founder of f2pool, the largest Bitcoin mining pool and one of the largest pools for Ethereum and many other networks.

Solana has been on our radar since its inception. We have been involved in many of the Tour de Sol dry runs (DR5, and top 3 in the DR6 with 98.1% efficiency) and have participated in all of TdS (TdS1, TdS2) and SLP (SLP1, SLP2).

Addresses used on them:

  • TdS: fish2tcDFRiAM1cNKqF7b96WzQmmDRjsf5XD214MhpV

  • SLP: 3Z5XVczCTXeYeFABoeFm1LngC9657kZMVGNFzqFXviHb

We, at Chainode Tech, are a young but highly motivated and experienced team based in Zug, Switzerland. Our focus lies in providing high quality staking and validator services on cutting edge Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) protocols in order to bring decentralization into the real world.

In terms of validator experience, we started to validate since 2018 on Lisk testnet and we are currently validating on several projects like Solana, Harmony Protocol, ICON Network, Lisk, Kava and other Tendermint based blockchains. Our strategy is to prioritize quality over quantity and therefore offer our staking services on less protocols but do it in a very professional manner by dedicating more of our time to those projects.

We are very rigorous in selecting the projects that we decide to join as a validator and we had our eyes on the Solana project since we first heard about it back in 2018, when we were not active as a validator group yet. As we appreciate the innovative and challenging tech, the team’s skillfulness, integrity and architectural choices, we saw Solana as one of the few projects that were actually bringing novel tech approaches and viable solutions to the decentralized space.

We joined Solana in the summer of 2019 and we participated in the network starting with the first dry run and have been active ever since in SLP, Tour de Sol and Mainnet Beta. Our team is well known to also get involved in growing the projects that we join as a validator by increasing the brand awareness, building tools for developers/ stakers or contribute to the educational content surrounding the tech, and we are looking forward to a long-term journey alongside the Solana team and fellow Validators.

How to Delegate?

Our Validator now accepts SOL delegations. The identity of Chainode Tech on mainnet is 3RXKQBRv7xKTQeNdLSPhCiD4QcUfxEQ12rtgUkMf5LnS and you can delegate to our team by using the following vote account: BxFf75Vtzro2Hy3coFHKxFMZo5au8W7J8BmLC3gCMotU

Chainflow has supported Solana since the early summer of 2019 as an advisor and validator. We’re a smaller, yet very capable, bootstrapped, independent validator operator.

Chris Remus founded Chainflow. He has 20+ years of experience working with mission critical telecom and IT infrastructure.

Working with Chris has been a pleasure and he has delivered consistent value to our project from the start. We were looking for a partner who could help us develop our network validator tools, while also providing insight and feedback from a validator’s perspective. Chris has reliably been this voice and has helped us on projects as far ranging as validator dashboards to efficient communication strategies.

Chainflow has also been one of the most active validators on our protocol to date and Chris goes out of his way to lend his experience and expertise to help other validators in the community.

In addition to his deep technical chops, Chris’ insights and feedback throughout the partnership have been clear, well-thought out and patiently communicated. In a fast paced, ever changing startup environment, Chris’ ability to roll with the punches and effectively deliver on technical, operational and strategic levels has been invaluable.

Eric Williams, Chief Scientist, Solana

Chainflow’s been involved in staking since 2016. We were one of the first members to join the Cosmos Validator Working Group in 2017.

Since then we’ve been active in many staking networks such as Cosmos, Livepeer, Aion, Matic, SKALE, NuCypher, Flow by Dapper Labs, and many others. Chris has also advised many of these networks on topics like validator program development, stake decentralization and incentivized testnet design.

You can read the kind things that these networks have said about working with Chris here.

Chainflow validators are fair and equitable validators for everyone. Everyone is welcome and treated equally, no matter how small or large their delegation is.

Chainflow also advocates for smaller validator operators via the Staking Defense forum, Telegram group and podcast. Smaller validator operators are essential to keeping stake decentralized.

We hope our efforts to give smaller validators a bigger voice and help smaller validator operators not only survive but thrive. Staking to Chainflow supports these efforts.

We sincerely appreciate each and every delegation entrusted to us. Please contact Chris directly with any questions you may have about delegating to us.

Do you want to know more about melea Staking Pool?

Welcome

melea Staking Pool

We are a Validation service that is growing every day in number of stakes, and that is focused on offering a good service where we are present, rather than on expanding our operation to other networks exponentially.

Here Validators in PoS networks since 2017 and we are currently validators in Cosmos, Iris, e-money, Secret network, Kava.

Observing the rapid growth of the Solana network, we have been pioneers in purchasing the latest hardware to get the most out of the network. We tested our new hardware and broke benchmark records.

Since November-December, we are testing the latest hardware, and it is currently out of stock or difficult to buy, but not for ours Solana validators, this is our current hardware and with which we broke records.

Check First Server now Backup→ Record with AMD EPYC 7502 ZEN2

2X Gigabyte Aorus M.2 2TB NVMe PCIe 4.0

This server is the primary server for the Mainnet network.

Tour del Sol’s server “The testnet network” is the same hardware but with an RTX 3080 Gigabit, everything else is the same as you can see here.

Tour del Sol server

AMD 9 5950X + RTX 3080

These two servers, as we mentioned, are owned by melea but are also located in a datacenter, under the concept of Colo.

2 Servers on the data-center for rent

We have two more equipment for backup that are dedicated servers with this hardware:

AMD EPYC 7502P 32 Core Zen2
128 GB DDR4 ECC
2X 1.92TB NVme

With our 2 own equipment and the 2 backup servers in case of an emergency we are covered so that you are never losing stake rewards due to validator downtime.

It’s not just about having good hardware

Solana is a sophisticated and advanced Blockchain network that requires the maximum possible monitoring of all hardware 24 hours a day. We do it this way with the preventive alarm system that has allowed us to maintain a 99% online and prevent failures before they happen or solved quickly on time.

Monitoring

To end this brief presentation, tell you what we have done while we are Validating and what we do:

1.- We have collaborated with the Solana team by providing ideas to improve Solana’s performance on servers. We indicate that we are using Ramdisk to extend the life of the disks and have a better performance at the same time. Solana team implemented this idea for all its validators.

2.- The reason that the skipped rates were so high was recently investigated and why some processors being superior like the AMD 9 5950X that we are testing, gave us worse results than processors of poorer quality. We carried out an exhaustive investigation of more than 4 intense weeks to monitor and test different setups in the speed of the CPUs that we determined that lowering the speed of the processors to a minimum level, solved the incidence of high skipped rate. Solana’s team, having this data, has been able to solve the incident that currently no longer exists.

Here a summary of the tests.

Changing CPU speed on the fly

Looking for the best speed to get in sync with the cluster and thus not lose blocks

In total synchrony with the perfect speed our Validator and the Cluster.

What else do we do

Social media

3.- We write articles, guides, in Spanish and English:

Swap >> $SOL x Crypto = Serum

Staking SOL with Solflare Crypto-Wallet

Transfer, Staking SOL with Ledger Nano X & S, Solana-cli Guide

Solana transferir & staking SOL. Tutorial

Solana Hispanic Blog

4.- We build Monitoring tools, telegram bot, and more to control everything at all times.

5.- We are one Wormhole Guardian Node

6.- We are part of the Solana Collective. The Solana Collective is always working for the community in every way hand in hand with the Solana team and its Foundation

7.- Decentralization Contributors; When we bought the new hardware, we started a decentralization of our nodes outside of Hetzner, which is the data-center with the largest number of nodes in Solana. The new servers are currently in Spain, helping to decentralize the network and making it more secure.

Screenshot from 2021-01-10 04-34-11

8.- We are going to publish more things that we are working on that we will not comment on here now, but soon.

STAKINGBRIDGE - JUST STAKE IT

We select the most innovative blockchains from across the galaxy and build custom nodes with state-of-the-art hardware. Therefore, we have no doubt that SOLANA is one of them.

The difference between other nodes and stakingbridge lies in the specialized hardware, maintenance, attention and commitment that StakingBridge offers to get the uptime as close to 100% as possible.

Usually the commission that the nodes charge their delegates (Stakers) are to cover the cost of maintenance and for the benefit of the person and / or entity that maintains said node. We think that it is fair once certain limits are reached to return a part of these commissions to the community in the form of airdrops, events, contests, etc.

Once a certain volume of staking has been reached in the nodes, 2% return to the community!
