To help the community members learn more about the validators on IRISnet, we are publishing a series of articles, each of which will cover two validators.

When choosing a validator to delegate, technical parameters such as self-bonded (the higher the better), uptime (the higher the better), commission rate (the lower the better), bond height(the lower the better)etc are good KPIs to review to get a 360-degree view on the validators’ performance. It is always a good practice to select multiple validators to hedge the delegation risk.

Following information can be found on IRISnet explorers including IRISplorer, IRISnet-Overview, Big-Dipper, IRISnet-P2P, Hubble.

These are the data on May 31th, 2019.

Here come the stories on Huobi Research and NewRoad.Capital.

Hi everyone,

A small introduction:
NewRoad.Capital started at the end of 2017 under the name TezosVote. After a successful start on Tezos network as Baker (validator), we made the switch to other POS blockchains. We are now also active on Cosmos and of course IRISnet under the name NewRoad.Capital

A little information about our setup:
We have a main and a backup validator. Both are in two different (Dutch) datacenter (in 2 availability-zones). They both have redundant power&(dedicated)network . The validators are behind a hardware firewall. They connected through a ddos protected vpn with our own hosted IRISnet nodes.

We have our own written monitoring software that keeps us informed with the health status of our two validator (and nodes) and warn us by email, sms or telegram notifications in case of a failure.

Happy Staking!
