Meet the Holliday Node — The New COTI Community Node
We are happy to introduce you to the Holliday Node! It is the new node that will be added to the MainNet. It brings the total MainNet staking volume to 80M $COTI, thus allowing more stakers to join the program.
The Holliday Node will have the honor of being the first node added to the Mainnet in 2021, as it will go live on January 1st.
This node is the 11th Community node added to the MainNet and the 18th in total.
We continue to select TestNet operators who patiently await their turn to become the next MainNet node operators while knowing the demand is high.
However, operators are not only selected according to the length of their wait but also as reported by their activity and contribution to the network. Consequently, we have the pleasure to announce that the operator chosen is one of those serious contributors to the network, who has shown by his persistence and devotion to be an important part of this adventure. You might know him in the community by the name of Doc Holliday.
Here is what Doc had to say:
“I am truly honored to be given the opportunity to run a MainNet node. COTI is a top tier project that continues to add value to its ecosystem every month.
The COTI team has been absolutely amazing. It’s astonishing and breathtaking to see the growth each month from new merchants being added to higher revenues across the board and of course new record highs for transactions. A big shout out to the support team! They are always there for us cotians; always emitting high energy across all channels. #staycoti
I look forward to joining the other node operators, supporting this awesome network, and doing my part to further contribute to the growth of COTI.”
The demand for participation in Staking 2.0 continues to be very high and we receive application requests at a very high pace. Adding new nodes enables more staking slots. In parallel, we are working on an improved version of the staking plan that will allow us to add even more nodes to the network.
We thank you all for your patience and wish you all a Happy New Year and joyful holidays!
Stake COTI, stay COTI!
