New Ronin Validators!
Introducing: Efficient Frontier, Community Gaming, & Nansen to Ronin's validator set
We are thrilled to introduce three new Ronin network validators, bringing our total to 17, making progress towards achieving our initial goal of 21 independent validators collectively securing the network.
Validators have the important duty of making sure all transactions on Ronin are processed correctly. Validators also act as crucial supporters and evangelists of the ecosystem and are appraised based on their contributions to the ecosystem.
Today’s validators were selected to ensure that Ronin has active, responsive, and secure validators backing the network as part of Sky Mavis’ commitment to bolstering our security. As part of Sky Mavis’ shift towards decentralization, Sky Mavis proposes new validators and puts them up for a vote. The current network requires 70% of the current validators to approve a proposal.
Without further ado, let’s welcome our next batch of validators:
Efficient Frontier, a digital asset algorithmic trading firm and a market maker on centralized and decentralized exchanges.
The EF team has worked closely with Sky Mavis since 2020, with their main focus being a market maker for the Ronin network and ensuring liquidity for tokens in the ecosystem. They are an enterprise team that will ensure the Ronin node is stable and secure.
As the premier all-in-one global earnings platform and competitive organizer, Community Gaming is building the infrastructure that will foster community growth in Web3 gaming and esports. Its mission is to enable millions of gamers to monetize their passion for gaming, providing a platform that equips players, organizers, and game developers alike with the tools needed to create, facilitate, and participate in esports tournaments and quests.
Recently, Community Gaming partnered with Sky Mavis to become the publisher’s Official Tournament Platform and Operations Partner for the Axie Infinity World Championship, Axie: Origin BYOD Tournament and Axie: Origin Stadium Series. To date, community organizers have hosted over 500 Axie Infinity tournaments on the platform.
Nansen.ai, a blockchain analytics platform, which combines on-chain data with a massive and constantly growing database containing millions of wallet labels. Nansen provides in depth information about Ronin Network data. The Ronin dashboard can be found here.
We understand that there is a lot of excitement in the community to help validate the network. To provide an egalitarian and accessible path to becoming a validator we have opened up an application form here.
