Wanchain Validator Node Mainnet Launch

Published by wanchain on

Wanchain's community of Validator nodes has launched ahead of the September 3rd activation of Proof of Stake

August 20, 2019

Wanchain is thrilled to have our community of Validator nodes launching on our network today, marking the first day that users can stake WAN tokens on Wanchain’s main network. Validators and users will begin earning rewards for securing the network on September 3rd upon the official activation of Proof of Stake consensus on Wanchain. Users are encouraged to stake their coins before the September 3rd activation of Proof of Stake.

We had over 140 Validators join our beta test network, and our team received invaluable feedback from our community of testers as they prepared for today’s launch. Thank you to all the Validators and community testers that contributed to this successful launch!

Wanchain Validator Economics and Definitions:

Please see this previous article for details on helpful definitions and economics details.

Setting up a Validator Node:

Instructions for setting up a Validator node can be found on our documentation website here, along with an exhaustive repository of other Wanchain documentation.

To register your node name, photo, and website, please fill out this form.

For questions, please join us in our Telegram group or Gitter channel.

How to Stake WAN Tokens:

For simple delegation, please delegate through the official WanWallet or MyWanWallet. If you are setting up the new Desktop Light wallet and have your WAN on your old desktop wallet, you will simply need to just sent the coins to your new wallet address before delegating to a Validator node(s).

For command line based delegation, please see the documentation site here.

A list of the current live Validators can be viewed on the new Wanchain explorer here.

New Product Releases:

Many new products have been released, some of which are essential to staking and validating. Please see this blog post for information and download links!
