Austin Griffith as an xDai validator 😁

I’d like to get the ball rolling on being an xDai validator.
I am particularly interested in becoming a validator because of my work with the Burner wallet.
Let me know what I need to do.


Hello hi Good morning!

Yes! Great news Austin. Fully support this. Burner Wallet is the main reason why people know about xDai and that showcased the possibilities that this network has. Looking forward to the ballot!

Can xDAI handle a second Griff? I believe so. :slight_smile:

So @austintgriffith would you be doing it in the name of Gitcoin? Or would it be just your node?

Griff, good point. xDai validators supposed to be organizations in a form of a legal entity, a brand, or
a DAO.
@austintgriffith can you participate as xDai validator as BurnerWallet brand?

I am in favor given the great work done so far. I also agree with @igorbarinov, validators aren’t supposed to be individuals. What’s your proposal @austintgriffith? BurnerWallet?


Austin’s work is awesome. I think he would do great!


We are currently working on instructions for the validators nominees and will we will propose ballots soon, so stay tuned Austin!

Waiting for the Austin’s input to propose the ballot

Oh my! Sorry I have camped on this for a hot minute, but I need to get on it! It looks like Portis, MyCrypto, and AlphaWallet are getting in on this too! Neat.

So it looks like I need to generate some secure ETH accounts and fund one of them as the bridge. Then post them here? I don’t see any hardware setups yet? I guess I do that after/if I get voted in?

Yes, you can use the tool from the instruction to generate keys.
You can sign your public key with your Keybase account if you have one.

Then post them here?

No, not really.

After, if validators vote you in :grinning:

Okay sorry it took me so long to get my act together.
Generating 4 accounts is the easy part!!
