Prestige IT has several blockchain specific services/products, including their Enterprise Key Management software “FrostByte”, providing clients blockchain nodes as a service (NaaS), and operating as a validator for multiple protocols. Prestige IT is currently an Authority Node Operator (ANO) for the Factom Protocol, providing highly available core infrastructure for the platform.

Validator nodes will start coming live on Tuesday, August 20th and participants will be able to stake as soon as the nodes are visible on the network. The official “switch” to Proof of Stake will occur on Tuesday, September 3rd, so users are highly encouraged to stake their WAN before this date. After September 3rd, staking rewards will become active. Based on the many assumptions in our internal model, users can expect ~11% annual returns.

Beta testnet has been very successful for the Wanchain dev team, with ~140 nodes joining the testnet. Stress tests and bug fixes have gone smoothly, and the team is confident in the mainnet readiness leading up to August 20th and September 3rd. See the article below for more information on beta testing.
