Anyblock Analytics (eth.events) as an xDAI Validator

Hi Everyone,

Anyblock Analytics (eth.events) would like to support the xDAI Chain as a Validator and Bridge Operator.

We’re running a lot of different blockchain nodes as part of our analytics stack and are also a validator for the EnergyWebChain.

We’re already running listening nodes for POA Core, Sokol and xDAI.

After talking to @igorbarinov, we’d like to become a part of the xDAI family.

Cheers,
Sascha

Hi Sascha

I had the pleasure to meet you at a community event a while ago and like what you are doing. The lab10 collective would be glad to see you join the xdai validator set.

I’ve thus created a proposal and voted for it:

@xdai-validators please express your opinion too by voting

Awesome, thanks! It was dAppCon Berlin, I think. It’s a small world :smiley:

Congratulations. The required number of validators to vote you in as a validator of xDai has been reached. :star2:

In ~ 32h the ballot can be finalized by any validator and your mining key and the corresponding node will start to create blocks.

Please check the validator process flow

P.S. You can skip Bridge node sections. Likely we will not onboard new Bridge validators before upgrade the xDai bridge to support MCDai. Migration to MCD for xDai bridge

Please let us know when your node is online and one of validators will finalize the ballot.

@saschagoebel a friendly ping

@igorbarinov On it this very moment. Can you give me the netstats URL and secret?

Once you’ve gone through the Set Medadata step, the name will be shown instead of the mining address.

Thanks guys, got the netstats reporting, but when I open the “Set Metadata” page in the validators portal, I neither see a way to select that this is a company account nor can I add an e-mail address. Am I on the right page?

There is a bug in the current Validators DApp for the Set Metadata page. We’ve already fixed that but not merged to production yet. Please try to use Validators DApp in https://deploy-preview-114--focused-turing-7cc011.netlify.com/ until we merge https://github.com/poanetwork/poa-dapps-validators/pull/114

When we merge that, the fixed version will be available at https://validators.poa.network/

@saschagoebel Please try again with https://validators.poa.network/ - now that should work.
