IoTeX Delegates run consensus on behalf of the network and must meet high performance, security, and uptime requirements. They must support continuous operation during traffic spikes and even network attacks — the network is only as strong as the weakest node. Although some tech-focused applicants have experience running nodes, other profiles (i.e., investors, media, community) may require technical support.
