In IBFT 2.0 Proof-of-Authority (PoA) networks such as Palm, validators are nodes that validate transactions and blocks. Validators take turns to create the next block. Before inserting the block onto the chain, a super-majority (greater than 66%) of validators must first sign the block.

Validators earn rewards for keeping the network honest. Validator nodes will initially be run by key stakeholders and technical partners.

Contact us if you need assistance setting up a validator, or reach out on Discord.

Use a transaction node or the Infura endpoints to read transaction history or send transactions on the Palm network without performing validator duties.
