Using Launchnodes’ Cosmos nodes in combination with Fortanix One Time Signer provides a highly-secure environment for staking on Tendermint blockchains.
The Cosmos and all Tendermint blockchains were developed to enable a network of interconnected and operable blockchains. Many of these blockchains are still centralised in terms of:
This service provides Launchnodes’ Cosmos nodes that are configured for use with Fortanix One Time Signer. These nodes can be used for solo staking or as RPC nodes, either on premise or on public cloud (AWS), and are engineered to integrate with the Fortanix’ one time Signer solution
The service includes:
Customers can use this service to distributes nodes across public cloud and bare metal to meaningfully decentralise their Tendermint blockchain, whilst securing it to a FIPS accredited standard
Allowing keys to be managed not only through securing the keys but also the process flows associated with their use and auditability.
Giving customers the benefit of a signer with distributed deployment. The default architecture offers five independent clusters, with each cluster deployed across three data centres.
Providing state tracking signers that are specifically designed to prevent double signing.
Distributing nodes (that connect to a distributed signer) across cloud and bare metal, (vendor and geography can be chosen by the client) reducing the risk of a single point of failure for staking operations.
Systemically decentralising the blockchain by meaningful diversification of geography for the nodes
Enabling blockchains to operate at the highest speeds and lowest latencies, regardless of the location of the nodes.
An existing or new blockchain (customer A) working in the Cosmos ecosystem which is looking to be part of the internet of blockchains has created a chain with:
Customer A would benefit from a rigorous key storage and management tool that gives credibility to their blockchain.
Customer A would further benefit from scaling their blockchain across multiple pre-configured nodes, distributed across multiple geographies and technical infrastructure to
Fortanix DSM SaaS is a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliant platform for secure key management. It offers a unique security architecture where custom plugins can be developed and deployed to run inside the hardware protected secure environment. The plugin can be protected with a quorum policy that involves multiple admin users. Once deployed, a plugin code cannot be modified without explicit permissions from multiple administrators.
The Fortanix One Time Signer solution includes a plugin which validates proposals and votes, tracks the state of the protocol and signs proposals and votes while ensuring that double-signing is prevented.
Launchnodes’ Concierge Service provides end-to-end set up for an Ethereum validator node. This is ideal if you want to Solo Stake and have at least 32 Ethereum or multiples of 32 Ethereum in a Metamask wallet, or a wallet compatible with depositing ETH through the ETH launchpad.
The validator nodes can connect to a Launchnodes Beacon node or your own Beacon nodes. You can use this service to build your own customised staking architecture as a solo Ethereum stakers. On AWS or your own infrastructure.
When performing mission critical or financially significant activity on the Ethereum blockchain, having your own RPC nodes ensures you can trust the data. Third party APIs are powerful tools making development at scale easy, but Blockchain-building requires data you can trust, where you own the source, and this is what RPC nodes provide.
A pre-synced Beacon node (using the Teku or Prysmatic client), with the Geth Client for Ethereum that allows you to connect to the beacon chain quickly and connect to Validator nodes. Beacon nodes can take 4-5 days to synchronise. Geth nodes can take 1 or 2 days.
Launchnodes provides a pre-synced Geth Node on AWS for staking ETH, native RPC nodes and other Layer 2 solutions. For the purposes of ETH staking Geth is an execution layer client.
A pre-synced Geth node is useful for any business or person staking ETH and can be used by all consensus layer clients. These consensus layer clients can run on public cloud or private data centre infrastructure. Making it easier and cheaper to stake ETH
All ETH Layer 2 solutions also require an Ethereum Geth node. This easy to run Geth node is pre-synced and can be deployed on public cloud or bare metal. By making Geth easy Launchnodes supports building in the Layer 2 eco-system.
Launchnodes provides an Always ON Teku Validator Node for Ethereum staking on mainnet or testnets
We provide customers with white labelled nodes that can run on public cloud, our infrastructure or data centre infrastructure owned by you. Create your own independent staking infrastructure with your own nodes in your own AWS, GCP or Azure account, or running on your own infrastructure.
Launchnodes offers all the staking building blocks to allow any level of customisation for ETH staking and for alternative blockchains.
Run Validator nodes on your own infrastructure public cloud or bare metal and stake 32ETH per node.
Launchnodes allows you to choose between Prysmatic or Teku software to be a Solo Staker and run Validator nodes and stake ETH. The Ethereum nodes run on infrastructure you own, while mnemonics, passwords, or public or private keys are never shared with Launchnodes.
Launchnodes provides a pre-configured Geth client (execution layer) running alongside a Teku client (consensus layer). This allows you to run Beacon nodes that can connect to validator nodes to start earning staking rewards or access blockchain data directly.
Participate and stake Ethereum as a Solo Staker. Use Launchnodes container based product to run Beacon nodes that have a connected Geth node to connect to the beacon chain. The Beacon Chain coordinates the network, and manages Proof of Stake for Ethereum.
