Chainlayer Validator

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

chainlayer https://github.com/regen-network/mainnet/pull/74

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

Our Regen validator runs in our colocation facility in The Netherlands. We use a relay-sentry setup where our validator is connected to sentries through relay servers in our colocation. This ensures our validator remains connected to the network even if one of our internet connections goes down.

Sentries run in the cloud and the validator is setup with KMS using a yubikey



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

Not right now. Our core business as a company is offering secure validation and staking services

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

Chainlayer focusses on bringing secure and reliable staking services to networks like Regen. We currently engage mostly with other validators through services like our Chainlink Quicksync service.

Our experience with Oracles could lead to some nice opportunities in the future as well.



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.

Yes, Chainlayer validates on multiple networks since we started on Tezos as TZDutch in 2017. We currently validate most Cosmos SDK networks like Cosmos, Kava, Terra and others as well as Solana and Flow. We are also a Chainlink node operator.

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 participated in most of the Regen testnets under the name Chainlayer. We ended up in 17th place mostly due to not participating in the Aplikigo testnet.

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

We are currently not very active with the community. We are mostly watching, but try to help out validators when we can.

Are you committed to actively voting on Regen proposals and contributing to governance?

Yes



Do you have website or other links which offer insight to you validation services? Please include any social media and website links.
