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 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 as noted in 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 or peer list:

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

I do have a few spots open in my quorum set if you’re interested in a mutual add.

Keep in touch!
