Hi 👋

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!

#KeepStakeDecentralized 💪
