Learn how to become a Validator
What is a Validator Node?
A Validator Node does the heavy lifting work behind the scenes, processing transactions and running the network To start a Validator Node yourself you will need to meet the minimum hardware requirements.
Running a Validator Node offers a unique opportunity to get involved as much as possible in the ecosystem development and adoption. Additionally, running a Validator Node will be eligible for periodic SafeCoin inflationary rewards. Validators are crucial guarantors for maintaining the stability and security of the SafeCoin network.
It is understandable that not everyone has the resources to run a standalone validator node. One of our main goals is, and always has been, accessibility. With the use of validator pools, a large audience is allowed to participate on a validator node with other members, easing the cost and technical know how.
Difference between SafeNodes and Validators
Although the coming Validator Nodes will likely be called ‘SafeNodes’, they are each based on a different codebase. The new SafeNodes, or Validators, have a completely different approach. The new SafeNodes will be focused on Proof of Stake and Proof of History, and will be doing the real work to hit the high transaction per second (TPS) specification of the new blockchain.
