Chainflow Validator

Please tell us your validator moniker used for mainnet genTx and link to the github PR.

Chainflow



Please describe the setup you are using for your validator? Include any relevant security information, processor speed, backups and sentry nodes etc…

We're using a multi-sentry node architecture, connected by VPNs. The architecture is backed-up regularly and monitored around the clock. We incorporate our experience having run Cosmos-based validators for 3.5 years. We follow similar principles for our Regen infrastructure as we do for our Cosmos Hub validator infrastructure.

Are you in some way trying to apply the high level application logic to create ecological credits. If so, please explain how.

We plan to explore ways to make our validator operation carbon neutral.

Are you working to engage a broader community? If so, please explain how.

Yes. We advocate for smaller validator operators and true decentralization via the Staking Defense Podcast, https://substack.stakingdefense.com.

Are you a professional validator? Please list your company name and include other chains you are validating for. Please include how long you have been in operation.

Chainflow's been operational since our founder, Chris Remus (Twitter @cjremus), was one of the first external validators to join the Cosmos Validator Working Group in 2017.

We currently validate on Comos-based chains including the Cosmos Hub, Akash, Iris and Oasis. We operate on other chains too, including Celo, Flow, The Graph, Livepeer, NuCypher, POKT, SKALE and Solana.



How did you perform during testnets and which testnets did you take part in? Please include the moniker(s) used. You can refer to your testnet results at https://regen.vitwit.com

We performed well in testnets under Chainflow and Novy. As Chainflow is a lead validator, we chose not to participate in most of the competitive tasks, to avoid potential conflicts of interest.

Are you active within the community on discord/telegram and in the discourse forum? Please include your usernames for the relevant platforms.

Please add a paragraph which will help the community decide to delegate to you. This may include any relevant information not listed above as to why you would like to be a Regen Network validator and why the community should choose to delegate to you.

We connected with the Regen mission when our founder, Chris, first met the team at NYC Blockchain Week 2019. We've supported the network as a lead validator since then. As active outdoor enthusiasts, protecting nature and climate change is of critical importance to us.

As early members of the Cosmos validator working group, we have 3.5 years of experience running validators on Cosmos chains. We have a proven track record validating on many Cosmos chains, as well as other blockchains.

Hi Chris, I am reading the profiles of Regen validators, before staking, and just wanted to say I super appreciated your articles and learned a lot from them. Thank you for your dedication to decentralization :pray:
