MathNodes is a team of system adminstrators and programmers dedicated to the Cosmos ecosystem and beyond. We provide critical infrastructure for validating several chains and projects.
We became a Sentinel Validator in August 2022 and our contributions to the network and foundation have not gone unnoticed. In February of 2023 we did an Airdrop of Decentr coins to our delegators. Delegators to our MathNodes validators can expect airdrops of Cosmos coins in the future. We are a team dedicated to expanding the reach of privacy on the internet by developing dapps and assisting in the core design of the Sentinel network and infrastructure.
Bitsong was our second expansion as a validator team becoming active in August 2022. We believe the future of collectible art in the form of music NFTs is on the bleeding edge of music industry technology. It is exciting to be part of the BitSong validator team and we look forward to many contributions to the network as we expand our resources.
In early 2023 we expanded to our third validator on the Decentr blockchain. Decentr offers a unique web3 experience by having a custom browser where web surfers can earn the DEC coin simply by using their web browser. We work closely with the Decentr team and have a foundational delegation from them as well. More time will be spent engaging with the Decentr team on product integration into a Sentinel apps.
Slowly expanding our reach in the Cosmos ecosystem, in January 2024 we launched our Jackal validator. Much time has been spent researching Jackal and Jackal labs and their focus on DePIN and privacy which strikes a chord with our beliefs. We are happy to finally have launched a validator on the Jackal protocol. As the MathNodes team expands we look forward to developing dapps and providing infrastructure to the Jackal network.
Serai DEX is a forthcoming AMM DEX similar to Thorchain. The primary difference is that Serai will be the leading DEX for privacy coins. The testnet validators have just launched in the 2nd week of Feburary 2024 and MathNodes is proud to be among the first few testnet validators. We hope to be selected as one of the main validators once the network goes live sometime in 2024.
In December of 2022 MathNodes was approached by the BlueFren DAO gang to host their validators for them. We agreed and our team is currently responsible for the infrastructure, administration, and maintenance of the BlueFren DAO validators. Currently, BlueFren validates on Sentinel and Decentr and may expand in the future.
Nous Host launched in February of 2023 as a sponsored project by MathNodes. The Sentinel Foundation contracted the Nous team to research the plausibility of an onion protocol within the Sentinel infrastructure. Nous is still an ongoing project and MathNodes provides support as well as a dedicated system admin to handle the Nous validator. MathNodes works close with the Nous team for future insights into Sentinel architecture.
UptimeRobot monitoring with Discord webhooks. Telegram bot monitoring with Monit software. Netdata reporting so we are always aware of our servers status.
We make use of redundant architecture. If one server goes down we can instantly spin up a second instance and restore the state. This ensures a minimum number of missed blocks, if any.
Hardened firewall rules, with advanced IDS in place; we will always know if our servers become targeted. We do our best to mitigate any DDoS attacks with advanced firewall rules and hosting providers that provide these services.
