Compendia Validator Proposal

A Compendia Validator is responsible for securing a node on the Compendia blockchain. Holders of the BIND token vote for validators that operate a node. The top 47 vote earners are elected to validate and insert new blocks into the ledger and forge new BIND tokens as a reward.

Overview

Our number one priority is to operate high quality, reliable and secure nodes on the Compendia blockchain. Prior to launching our Compendia validator we spent several years as community developers for the Ark core network. We also operate an Ark mainnet delegate and our own custom prototyping bridgechain called Radians so we are experienced at securing blockchain nodes.
We will be diligent in continuing product development and promotion of the Compendia blockchain. In addition to the development of plugins and tools for supporting the blockchain we are developing an IoT infrastructure to interface with Compendia open databases.

Thank you to all of our current voters and we look forward to the support of future voters.
