As we accelerate towards Mainnet, we’ve launched our incentivised public testnet – Project Artemis. To assist potential individual Validators in joining the network, we’ve partnered with a European managed services and co-location provider, Zero Services.
Zero Services GmbH is a team of crypto enthusiasts, providing managed services, monitoring and operating multiple PoPs (point of presences) spread across Europe, Asia and South America.
Their current promo consists of co-location (power, cooling, physical security), connectivity (internet access), and hardware renting. They’re optimised for Validator operations, assembling hardware specs you provide and installing, operating, and monitoring your Cudos instances.
The primary location for Zero Services is Europe’s internet hub – Frankfurt, Germany. The company is also in Finland, Netherlands, Spain, Singapore, while Japan and Brazil will be coming soon.
Denis Pavlak, CEO of Zero Services GmbH, said:
“We are very excited about our new partnership with Cudos, as we are constantly looking for decentralised storage and computing projects, which will offer products with a vision to connect blockchain with the traditional business world. Moreover, Cudos empowers an efficient use of computational resources and unites this with decentralisation for additional security to the network. We’d also love to enable people to have new revenue streams provided by their hardware. We know that with Cudos, we have found a partner who can help us achieve all this.“
Pete Hill, our VP of Sales, added:
“Running a validator node for any project can be technically challenging and time-intensive. This often puts it out of reach for token funds and community buyers who wish to contribute to the network beyond the passive earning they get from staking. In Zero Services, we have secured an experienced and reputable hosting provider that fully manages the validator node for the operator. Their team has also joined our validator community on Discord, offering assistance and advice to those running Validator nodes. They truly embody the blockchain ethos of ‘community’ and we are proud to have them as a partner.”
The Cudos Network is a layer 1 blockchain and layer 2 computation and oracle network designed to ensure decentralised, permissionless access to high-performance computing at scale and enable scaling of computing resources to 100,000’s of nodes. Once bridged onto Ethereum, Algorand, Polkadot, and Cosmos, Cudos will enable scalable compute and Layer 2 Oracles on all of the bridged blockchains.
