Episode 1 - Ian of Secretnodes.org
I’m feeling excited to release the Staking Defense Podcast’s pilot episode. This episode features Ian, founder of Secretnodes.org.
Ian’s a very active member of the Secret Network’s (formerly Engima) community. He’s also a smaller, independent validator operator 💪
In this episode, we discuss -
How Ian got started validating
Secretnodes.org’s contribution to the Secret Network
Challenges he faces as a smaller, independent validator operator
Whether the Secret Network is welcoming to smaller, independent validator operators
Also, you’ll hear Ian reference raising a modest amount of VC funding. Since the episode was recorded, Ian informed me that he returned this funding.
I hope you enjoy this episode. Please remember that it’s a pilot episode and my first as a podcast host. I’ve already identified some areas that and benefit from improvement.
Along those lines, any and all constructive feedback is welcome!
The Staking Defense podcast is sponsored by Staking Defense and Chainflow. It’s produced by the talented Luke Griffin of the Hear Bushwick podcast, part of the Heritage Radio Network.
