Blockdaemon is a leading provider of blockchain services, with more than $10 billion USD in assets staked via their institutional grade infrastructure. Today we are excited to announce that Blockdaemon is joining the Elrond Network as a staking provider!

“With Blockdaemon joining our validators network, Elrond becomes even more decentralized, and the ecosystem stands to benefit from the influx of high-end infrastructure and top notch professionals operating it.” said Lucian Mincu, Elrond Network CIO.

Their node management platform will help auto-scale Blockdaemon servers running Elrond Validator nodes securely with enhanced monitoring, back-up systems, HA clusters, APIs and cloud-managed node monitoring of on-premises solutions, greatly contributing to the overall health and consistent performance of the Elrond Network.
