Announcing the AZERO Domains Community Validator


We are happy to announce that we are setting up an AZERO Domains Community node to support the decentralization of the Aleph Zero Blockchain. To ensure maximum security, we partner with our friends from Swiss Staking, an institutional-grade staking infrastructure provider based in Luzern, Switzerland.

Why Decentralization Matters

The introduction of decentralized ledger technologies has given rise to today’s extensive crypto ecosystem. An entire industry with countless applications and use cases has emerged based on smart contracts. However, all of this is missing the fundamental premise of the crypto ecosystem without sufficient decentralization.

The main properties and values of decentralized blockchain systems include the following:

Creating Value for the AZERO Domains Community

In addition to supporting the decentralization of the Aleph Zero network, the AZERO Domains community node contributes to a sustainable long-term funding strategy for the project. All commissions awarded to AZERO Domains will go into direct project funding to support the growth of the project and the AZERO Domains ecosystem.

The AZERO Domains community validator will start with a low commission of 2%, which might be increased over time aligned with the commission-rate schedule of the Aleph Zero Foundation. This helps to find a healthy market rate covering the associated costs of running an institutional-grade node setup.

Next to the general staking rewards of around 12% APY, AZERO Domains nominators may be rewarded with additional perks in the future.

Teaming up with Swiss Staking

To ensure the highest security for all our nominators, we are teaming up with Swiss Staking, an established staking provider with various experiences validating Proof-of-Stake Blockchains such as Cosmos, Ethereum, Chainlink, Avalanche, NYM, Osmosis, Evmos, and many more. Besides that, they are trusted by Swiss institutions and have over 39,000 retail clients.

This partnership enables us to focus on developing AZERO Domains while having the confidence that all nominated funds are in the best hands possible. We believe this step is another significant milestone for the AZERO Domains community and further benefits the decentralization of Aleph Zero.
