Simply Staking


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

We restrict disclosure on validator-specific details, however we operate a Tier 3, fully redundant datacenter that is the base of our infrastructure operations. We also have multiple servers which are colocated in other datacenters in Europe. Datacenter specs include power/cooling/ISP redundancies, PCI-DSS certifications, next generation firewalls inspecting all traffic and full monitoring of all hosts.

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

We are currently not working on any application that creates ecological credits.

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

We are currently involved in the development of IXO, an impact economy project.

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.

The Simply Staking team supports and scales infrastructure foundations that have achieved a record of security and reliability on 31 different blockchain networks, securing $90+ million of staked assets.

We support networks as validators, investors and/or community members on many other chains within the Cosmos ecosystem: Cosmos Hub, Oasis, Akash, Emoney, ixo, Ki, Microtick, Pocket, Secret, Starname, BitSong, Desmos, Kira, Regen, Stargaze and Certik.

The company has been operating within the blockchain infrastructure space since 2013, initially in Proof of Work mining and later on in Proof of Stake networks.

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.

Simply Staking delegators can be confident in the fact that our infrastructure and team provide a very secure and reliable validator service, leading to higher returns and network security in the long term. Our commissions are below average across all networks we participate in, keeping a balance between the upkeep of our 24/7 team and dedicated hardware, whilst still keeping costs low to stakers.

We are also the only validator owned and run from the island of Malta, a jurisdiction with a framework aimed at creating legal stability for companies in the blockchain ecosystem.
