Fantom nodes available soon through StrongBlock Nodes-as-a-Service
We are happy to announce that the innovative node service provider StrongBlock will soon offer full nodes for Fantom.
StrongBlock’s mission is to provide non-technical users the ability to launch and operate full blockchain nodes. To date, over 11,000 users have deployed over 77,000 nodes using the StrongBlock platform.
StrongBlock is unique in that it rewards node operators with STRONG tokens and native protocol tokens. To further incentivize its users, the node service provider recently launched an NFT line which node operators can stake for even more earnings.
Fantom will subsidize a portion of node rewards with FTM tokens to the StrongBlock community. StrongBlock is planning innovative validator and node pool initiatives on Fantom and is also exploring becoming a Fantom validator.
With StrongBlock, Fantom will significantly expand its node-service offerings to builders and validators who wish to forego the time and cost expenses associated with engineering and maintaining a node. Moreover, the StrongBlock agreement underscores Fantom’s commitment to push decentralization across its rapidly growing network.
“We’re pleased that Fantom network nodes will be offered as part of the StrongBlock one-click node launching platform. We are extremely confident that this will boost reliability and awareness of the Fantom network,” – Michael Kong, CEO of Fantom.
“The STRONG node army is a vibrant and growing community. We are excited to provide incentivized node launching to them. Whenever the army marches to a new protocol, they increase awareness and expand adoption. We’re excited to partner with Fantom to bring this opportunity to the STRONG community.” – David Moss, Strongblock Founder.
StrongBlock is the first and only multi-chain Nodes-as-a-Service platform to reward nodes for supporting their blockchain infrastructure.
The STRONG protocol and node reward mechanism, integrated with NFT tokens, lays the foundation for stronger, more secure, and economically sound blockchain networks.
STRONG enables decentralized governance of its community DeFi protocol. STRONG is not a fundraising device or investment opportunity.
Fantom is a fast, scalable, and secure layer-1 EVM-compatible platform built on a permissionless aBFT consensus protocol. On Fantom, transactions are confirmed in around a 1 second and cost on average one cent. Speed, low transaction costs, and high throughput make Fantom ideal for DeFi applications and real-world use-cases.
