Node A-Team is an experienced Proof of Stake blockchain validator service based in South Korea. We have been operating and optimizing validator nodes since Cosmos Gaia Testnet, which is one of the first Proof of Stake blockchain network.
Node A-Team’s journey as Proof of Stake validator began since 2018, when Gaia testnet of Cosmos Network was actively on-going. Since after the genesis block of Cosmos, the team has been exploring numerous blockchains with the most promising potential. A-Team is now a mainnet validator for:
- Solana (Mainnet Beta)
- Cosmos Hub
- Terra Money
- IOV (Internet of Value)
- Band Protocol
- Orbit Chain
During the journey to become a validator for 9 mainnet projects, Node A-Team received multiple testnet awards, proving themselves to be a highly-qualified validator. Below are some of the highlights of the team’s incentivized testnet achievements:
- Cosmos Game of Stakes “Never Jailed Group”
- IRISnet Nyancat Testnet: All tasks completed - Full score
- Terra Genesis Drill Rank #3
- Kava Founder Member PLUS Badge
- IOV Validator Candidate TOP 5
- E-Money Reward Program - Full reward recipient
- Solana Tour De Sol - Bug Bounty Recipient
- LINO Network Validator Prize Winner Top 7
- Akash Network Founding Member Challenge Winner
Mission / Goal
It does not require delegators the same technical expertise and resources as a validator, but they are consistently vulnerable to the risks of slashing and downtime caused by validators’ mistakes. Node A-Team is dedicated to provide secure and trustworthy validator service for their delegators to keep them safe from these risks. In order to achieve this mission, the team has spent a great portion of resources to optimize for a resilient validator node infrastructure. A-Team uses below practices and use different setups for every project, to deliver the goal of their mission:
- Qualified and trustworthy datacenter
- Multi-cloud setup with regional distribution of instances
- Customized monitoring tools to stay alarmed about validator node status 24/7
- Having stakes within the network, including SOLs, to secure all staked assets as if they were ours
Solana & Node A-Team
Node A-Team has strong faith in the future success of Solana. Solana found innovative ways to resolve the current scalability and throughput problem in blockchain ecosystem to enable new and existing applications get access to higher performance in order to provide service in a larger scale by finding the best optimization between hardware and software. Solana, therefore, will be a platform that powers enterprise-level and mass adoption application.
Since Dry Run 5 testnet, Node A-Team started to actively participate in Solana. Over Dry Run, Tour de Sol and Soft Launch Phase, the team was able to find improved validator infrastructure which is aimed to attain the liveness and resilience which they achieved in their previous networks. During the deep dive into the Solana software, Node A-Team was able to spot and report a minor bug to contribute to an improvement of the software. In addition, for real-time monitoring of general network status of Mainnet-Beta, the team has provided a Telegram Alarm which anyone with Telegram application can get access to.
