We are excited to announce that Ankr now enables PCHAIN public node hosting on its distributed cloud with a cutting edge PCHAIN node deployment in minutes, user-friendly UI and from only 39 USD per month!
PCHAIN has two types of validator nodes, both available via Ankr:
- Candidate node: 10,000 PI mandatory deposit, delegations (external voting wallets) enabled.
- Bidder node: 100,000 PI mandatory deposit, no delegations, personal balance voted in the node wallet.
To celebrate this new partnership, PCHAIN and Ankr are launching a joint campaign: one free month of hosting and a shared delegation pool of 3,600,000 PI for the first 36 newly Ankr hosted candidate nodes, the latter financed via PCHAIN first buy-back ever!
And it keeps getting better…, Ankr has launched its own official Candidate Node on PCHAIN mainnet!
How to participate in the campaign:
- Set up a PCHAIN Candidate Node on Ankr: link.
- Set-up a commission between 5% and 15%.
- Send the below information via email to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Candidate Node Name.
- Public Address.
- Date Set-up.
- Commission %.
- Tweet about your experience with:
a. A screenshot of your node, see example above.
b. Tag @pchain_org and @Ankr.
c. Hashtag #PCHAIN, #Ankr, #AnkrYourNode, $ANKR and $PI.
PCHAIN dynamic validator node plan:
Even though PCHAIN mainnet has been online for just over a year it is already enabling large-scale industrial applications of blockchain smart contracts in a hybrid and fully interoperable ecosystem. PCHAIN public permissionless main chain and validator nodes are the beating heart of this hybrid economy.
PCHAIN takes advantage of both types of blockchain: public permissionless and private permissioned. By making public and private blockchains interoperable, organizations can isolate and control sensitive data on a private blockchain while still safely interacting with the world at large through an interoperable public blockchain. This has been PCHAIN vision since inception and led to the signing of 4 permissioned Commercial Child Chains (CCCs): Qiang Sheng Smart-e (launched), KINGGRID (delivered), Weida Group (signed) and GAC-INTERBEING LAB (signed), one year only after launching its mainnet.
PCHAIN dynamic validator nodes participate in PCHAIN unique and patented PDBFT algorithm consensus. These nodes jointly manage and build PCHAIN main chain, Commercial Child Chains (CCCs) and DApp ecosystem.They share the POS mining consensus rewards of PCHAIN public chains (main chain and public CCCs) as well as the PCHAIN network transaction fees from internal and cross chain transactions. For more details about our hybrid multi-chain network and CCC economy please visit this link.
PCHAIN dynamic super node plan is different from the traditional way of voting as it uses the 1st algorithm driven dynamic bid (DBID) system in the world to select its dynamic Super Nodes. Once a month (every EPOCH), PCHAIN launches a new round of DBID to increase the number of dynamic super nodes, month by month. As the PCHAIN ecosystem grows and hundreds of nodes become PCHAIN dynamic verification nodes this mechanism will ensure decentralisation and strengthen our public consensus.
This strategic partnership with Ankr shall enable PCHAIN to quickly reach 100 super nodes on its mainnet. Medium to long term PCHAIN will focus on attracting DIY (self managed), Staking as a Service and Partners / Clients super nodes. These four layers shall enable the PCHAIN ecosystem to grow and operate in a stable and incentivised network.
Ankr blockchain cloud infrastructure for easy node hosting:
Ankr’s one-click node hosting solutions are aimed at solving the issues of node hosting for the community — by removing any barriers for community members to host nodes and earn staking rewards for their project of choice. They have created a simple application, which can be used by community members to set up their PCHAIN public node in just a few easy clicks!
With the Ankr one-click deployment application, it takes literally less than 5 minutes to deploy your node! No need to go through any documentation or pricing setup at a public cloud provider.
There is zero technical knowledge required to set up a PCHAIN Public Node on the Ankr cloud, which makes it much easier for community members to contribute to the goal of decentralizing the PCHAIN Network.
Ankr is the cheapest hosting solution out there. You can host your PCHAIN Public Node for 39 USD per month! You can pay the costs for node hosting not only with credit card, but also with several cryptocurrencies, such as ANKR and USDT.
Ankr blockchain support specialists provide support 24/7 in all timezones around the globe through their Discord group.
Joint campaign, one month of free hosting and 3.6m PI shared delegation pool, the latter financed via PCHAIN first ever buy-back:
To celebrate this new partnership, we are launching a joint campaign: you can get a free month of hosting and share a delegation pool of 3,600,000 PI, the latter financed via PCHAIN first buy-back ever!
The first 36 Candidate Candidate Nodes launching on Ankr will share equally the delegation pool (100,000 PI voted to each) and for 12 Epochs.
Please note that the rewards collected by the PCHAIN Delegation Pool will be added back to PCHAIN POS Mining Wallet, and the use of the 3,600,000 PI will be decided via a Community vote when the campaign ends, 12 EPOCHs from now, EPOCH 26.
