At the heart of the eSync Network’s proof of stake protocol lie nodes and validators, the pillars holding up the system’s security and functionality.

Nodes and validators are the backbone, ensuring the blockchain’s security, integrity, and functionality. We’ll go much deeper into the essence of nodes, their invaluable role, and how one can ascend to the position of a validator within the eSync Network.

What is a Node?

In the scope of every blockchain technology powered by PoS, such as the eSync Network, a node facilitates the decentralization that characterizes blockchain technology. It is essentially a link within a network that owns a copy of the ledger and, in many cases, participates in verifying the data and transmitting the information.

Why Do We Need Nodes?

The role of nodes in a Web3 Infrastructure such as eSync Network serves as the fundamental part that maintains a decentralized network and the transfer and validation of data. Let’s examine the primary roles of nodes in greater depth.

  • Network Connectivity: Nodes connect and share data across the network, enabling Web3 communication.
  • Transaction Validation: Nodes validate transactions based on consensus criteria and ensure their legitimacy.
  • Maintaining Network Consensus: Nodes are key to achieving and maintaining consensus and securing Web3 infrastructure.
  • Data Storage and Distribution: Nodes decentralize data storage by distributing blockchain information across networks to prevent censorship.

How to Become a Validator Node in eSync Network

With the eSync Network’s Proof of Stake (PoS) upgrade, validators are now critical system components as they pilot the entire system, ensuring its functionality, security, and decentralization.

A validator is responsible for validating new transactions and maintaining the security of the blockchain. Imagine the PoS consensus method was a business and validators as the invaluable workers and the formidable security guards that keep the ledgers up to date by verifying daily transactions and keeping everything safe, sound, and copacetic.

• Validator Selection: Validators are chosen to propose and validate blocks based on their stake size and, in some cases, through a deterministic or randomized selection algorithm.

• Stake Size: PoS relies on validators to propose and validate new blocks based on their cryptocurrency, commonly called their stake. The stake size parameter on the eSync Network determines the minimum amount of cryptocurrency required for an entity to participate in the consensus process. A higher stake size typically increases the probability of being chosen as a validator, thereby influencing the level of participation and security within the network.

• Block Creation: Validators in the PoS system play a pivotal role in proposing and validating new blocks. Validators are responsible for proposing new blocks, and the network then verifies their proposals.

• Block Finality: Finality in a PoS-based system signifies the irreversible confirmation of a block, indicating that the network accepts it. The robustness of this finality mechanism adds an additional layer of security and certainty to the blockchain.

Essential Insights from eSync Network Validators

In an interview conducted with two eSync Network validators, we gained insights into the essence of why they do this, the benefits of being a validator, and, most importantly, why others should become NODLERs (Validators) themselves.

Validator 1: Davor Boshkoski

Davor Boshkoski is a resident of the beautiful city of Veles, Macedonia. He is a devoted father and freelancer whose artistic side is manifested through pyrography.

His experience dealing with the retail side of eCredits served as his entry into the blockchain validator realm. Utilizing the Jupiter LE Validator Node, Davor emphasizes the system’s efficiency and ease, stating that “the computer does all the work,” allowing for seamless transaction validations and Davor gaining all the benefits.

His decision to align with eCredits was driven by its fast and economical transactions, envisioning a future where eCredits stands shoulder to shoulder with giants like Visa/Mastercard in revolutionizing daily financial transactions.

Validator 2: Federico De Rossi

Federico entered the blockchain space with a wealth of experience as a partner at a telecom company based in Italy dedicated to providing customized telecommunications solutions.

His mission has always been to leverage technology to enhance work and life’s efficiency. Federico’s venture into the eCredits Ecosystem was a natural progression that started with an in-depth study of the eCredits White Paper and node documentation, followed by the technical assembly of the necessary equipment, including the Ubuntu operating system and Docker.

He sees his role as a validator as part of a broader shift from the “Information Era” to a “Blockchain Era,” where engaging with this technology means advocating for financial freedom, ownership, and equity across all demographics.

eSync Network Nodes and Validators

Davor and Federico’s unique backgrounds and paths to becoming eCredits Validators highlight the diverse appeal of blockchain technology. Their stories underscore the transformative potential of eSync Network in redefining global financial transactions. From maintaining network consensus to validating transactions, nodes and validators showcase how indispensable they are and reinstate their commitment to ensuring security and flawless functionality within the system.
