AlphaWallet as xdai chain validator


#1

Hi Everyone!

Our team at AlphaWallet loves xDai and POA and we support both in our wallet.

I think it would be a good idea if we also became validators, however I was wondering what the exact requirements are to be one. Could you please elaborate?

Thank you,
James

I have had many positive interactions with the Alpha Wallet team. I have respect for their very solid approach to engineering. I believe they would do a good job of being a validator.

Hi @James-Sangalli

Our technical writer has just published a walkthrough / guide of what you and the new validator candidates need to do! It is published here

As a validator (Protofire.io) we would be glad to see AlphaWallet become a new xDAI validator. Count with us to publish the ballot for voting. Just follow the instruction Mr @Ziggy shared and let me know.

Sorry, but you have to split Voting and Payout keys because the smart contract doesn’t allow identical addresses: https://github.com/poanetwork/poa-network-consensus-contracts/blob/862c6e7b48f7a803e0282f05e90287b70b32af2a/contracts/VotingToChangeKeys.sol#L54

Ok, added. See above.

I have just created the Ballot. It is time for all the validators to vote
