Smoove Stellar Validators

Welcome!

My name is Chris and I am the person behind the two smoove.net Stellar validators you might have seen on the Stellar.org’s Dashboard.

While there are notable validators like IBM on the Stellar network, the network depends on the generosity of its community to build a robust network of validators. In fact, decentralization is a secondary strategic objective on Stellar’s 2018 roadmap.

A healthy decentralized network should reflect the diversity of the community

Smoove.net Validators

The two smoove.net validators are my very small contribution to the Stellar network. I believe that a healthy decentralized network should reflect the diversity of the community, which includes individuals like myself who are not associated with a for-profit company.

If you’re running a stellar-core node, you may add these validators to your quorum set and/or peer list:

v1.stellar.smoove.net – GDCAQY2Q5VMMI4ZOX35GTL7X43LMP3RA5W4VCP6V2BB6IFOO76GACXZU
v2.stellar.smoove.net – GCXEKMPY6TDNNI2VBWFOEA23V22OZW2INSCGTKNEHIHJDPG2C53PURBG

These are basic validators located in Toronto (v1) and Singapore (v2) on the DigitalOcean network.
