Beliefs/Values regarding governance: At Luganodes, we strongly believe in decentralized governance and the power of community participation. We actively engage in network governance processes by voting on proposals, sharing our insights, and collaborating with other validators and community members to shape the future of the blockchain ecosystem.

Additional Contributions and Services: Apart from validating, we also contribute to the ecosystem in several ways, including:

  1. Running public RPCs: We provide public RPCs for the communities like: SUI, Polygon zkEVM, Ronin, TON, Polygon, Canto, Archway. These RPCs help developers interact with the blockchain networks and build decentralized applications.
  2. Open Source: We actively contribute to the open-source community. We have developed * nebctl, built to simplify the process of setting up and maintaining a Nebula network by automating most of the steps required. It aims to serve as a seamless, one-click solution for managing a Nebula network. We also built out documentation for Holepunch
  3. Snapshots: We regularly take and provide snapshots for networks such as SUI and Archway. These snapshots serve as reliable backups and aids in network stability.
  4. Relayers: We support Gitopia by running relayers, which contribute to the seamless flow of information between different blockchain networks.
  5. Technical Content: We produce educational content to share our knowledge and insights with the community. Our technical articles cover topics like: The Sui Network: A Validator’s Perspective, A Study on Aptos Parallel Transaction Engine, A Glance into Sui’s Object-Centric Data Model

We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of security, reliability, and performance in our validator operations. We invite delegators to join us in our journey towards a decentralized future and benefit from our experience and expertise.
