In anticipation of Mina’s mainnet launch, the Mina Foundation is excited to share the list of node operators participating in the Seed Peer Providers Program.
Seed Peer Providers are an independent group of nodes that assist new nodes to find peers and connect to the Mina Protocol. This improves the onboarding experience for other nodes, and makes sure they start bootstrapping as soon as possible.
Mina’s Seed Peers are considered to be leaders amongst the community. They are not compensated in any way – they perform their role as a service to the Mina community. The full list of seed peers can be found below:
Ankr; Bison Trails; Bit Cat; BiXinKeLe Pool; DSRV; Figment; Genesis Lab; HashQuark; Mina Explorer; Moonli.me; Nodeasy; P2P Validator; Piconbello; Spark Pool; Stakefish; Stake Tab; Staked; Staker Space; w3m; Zero Knowledge Validator
About Mina Protocol
Mina Protocol is being incubated by O(1) Labs, the leader in zk-SNARKs and verifiable computation. Mina Protocol, the world’s lightest blockchain, provides a foundation for the decentralized digital economy (Web 3.0), by affording all participants fully P2P, permissionless access to the chain, from any device. By utilizing recursive zk-SNARKs, the Mina blockchain always stays the same size — about 20 kilobytes (the size of a few tweets). Recursive zk-SNARKs allow nodes to rapidly share and update proof of the correct blockchain state across the network. This breakthrough application of zk-SNARKs solves the issues of scalability and high barrier to entry for nodes that have plagued legacy blockchains to-date. By making it easier for nodes to participate, Mina improves decentralization and therefore security of the network. The Mina blockchain can be easily accessed from any device, including phones and browsers, and can be seamlessly integrated into new decentralized applications (dapps).
