Belated introduction from KysenPool (moniker: KysenPool Sky ) – one of Cosmos Hub’s early validators! As a dedicated team of Proof-of-Stake enthusiasts and devops ninjas, we have been actively participating as an active validator since June 2019.
Since Day 1, we have been running a hybrid cloud architecture with a combination of on-premises data center hosting an HSM-backed (Hardware Security Module) signer service, surrounded by sentry nodes around the globe.
We constantly review upcoming changes on the Cosmos ecosystem and have upgraded through each
cosmoshub-# iterations successfully (the upgrades were often harrowing and lasts over 12 hours with information asymmetry, fun times!)
We now support several other chains in the Cosmos ecosystem live on mainnet, namely Kava, Aura, Quicksilver, Desmos, and several other Tendermint-based chains either in Testnet or Research stages.
We are also actively validating on Ethereum, Cardano and Harmony, and have dealt with Solana, Polkadot and others but decided not to go live on these chains at that time due to economic viability at that time. The cross-pollination of experiences with other blockchains such as Substrate-based Cardano and Ethereum-based chains have helped tremendously.
With help from your ATOM delegations, we will be able to continue with our strong commitment to support and secure the Cosmos Hub and IBC connected chains, with new chain introductions, investments and through replicated / shared security.
We Built an Analytics Platform
We’ve not only built an analytics platform called CosmosOutpost for Cosmos Hub, we’ve also consistently delivered on constant reporting, snapshotting the trends of these time series metrics – 1) wallet sends, 2) delegation changes, 3) reward distributions, 4) transaction success rates. There’s also a view on validator uptimes.
You can follow our dedicated CosmosOutpost Twitter account for a daily snapshot.
Invesments and Joint Venture Funds
We have recently partnered with investment funds and venture studios to help grow ecosystems that we’re involved with. We will be announcing on Twitter for these partnerships in Q2 and Q3 of this year.
We will entertain new partnerships that are aligned in a decentralized multi-chain future. We certainly hope you will reach out to us at our Telegram channel or email us at email@example.com
Connect with Us
We actively post on our main Twitter account and interact with our delegators and Web3 enthusiasts on our Telegram channel. We also have a Medium blog which we recently re-committed to post relevant Cosmos ecosystem updates and thought leadership pieces.
We look forward to continued relationship with the Cosmos ecosystem to a better multi-chain future!
