Using the Carpathian Node on COTI Blockchain as a proof of concept, now preparations are on the way to set up a collaborative node on Orion Protocol as well. The legal framework is on the way to finalization and the participants have been found.
This will be one of the first Democratic run collaborative nodes on the Orion Protocol
Will ORN be the next node / brokerage for Carpathian Basin?
After COTI, the next blockchain in focus now is the Orion Protocol. Orion is a relatively new blockchain. The purpose of Orion Protocal is providing a platform for traders looking for the best exchange for executing a trade.
Currently the Orion Terminal is in closed Beta and there is a staking initiative on KuCoin with a 40% APR.
So how does it work, as a token holder you will either be able to stake at a brokerage or become a brokerage (minimum 10k ORN required). If your brokerage is used for the transaction of the trade which occured on the Orion Terminal, you will get the trading fee, which has to be shared with the stakers into your brokerage.
After COTI, this will be the next blockchain in focus to establish a node (brokerage).
During the month of May we were running the COTI Community Node, but after the Node Operators have been asked to set up their own fee’s, we have been re-branded to Carpathian Node.
Our node fee of 0,09% is average compared to the nodes, and the maximum fee of 90 COTI is lowest together with the Veru Node. With that giving the best value for Merchants with high transaction values, while the Merchants with lower transaction values are better off with Rufys or Bitcoin Browns.
Carpathian Basin has been selected as the future Community Node on the COTI blockchain.
This is the start of a new chapter. As of yesterday April 24th, Carpathian Basin has been selected to become the next Community Node in the COTI blockchain as laid out in the message in the COTI telegram channel yesterday.
This is a big honor but also a big responsibility. In the coming days, we will find out the exact requirements of running the Community Node and the difference between running our node on the COTI Testnet.
We will create a plan on how we can support the COTI blockchain in optima forma and for that purpose, we will extend our COTI node page on the website with an introduction of the team (done), a roadmap of our plans to support COTI and detailed info about COTI in order to introduce new people to this great Blockchain.
For now we would like to thank the people who put their trust in us and voted for us. We will honor that trust with our hard work to contribute to the mass adoption of COTI as the “Coin of the Internet”.
The $COTI blockchain, one of the projects we are engaged with has opened a voting to decide on the next Mainnet Node to be switched on:
We have put in our candidacy and are collecting votes. This is a unique and very democratic way to decide on who will be the next mainnet node and as Carpathian Basin, we are proud to be part of this process.
