Our Validator Philosophy:
We at SkyNet believe a healthy community of Validators begins with knowledge and understand proper validator architectural best practices. Only with these two key understanding can a validator hope to be secure. Why is this important? It is important because Validators are the core nodes of any blockchain and sign every transaction on the chain.
We realize this philosophy by:
First, ensuring the security and safety of SkyNet | Validators & SkyNet | Explorers supported blockchains and block explorers.
Second, we educate and support our delegators in a transparent and positive manner. We offer a 100% soft slashing refund to our delegators.
Third, we support the CosmosSDK validator community by sharing the knowledge gained on our path to today.
Part of sharing and supporting the CosmosSDK community is by providing block explorers for the projects we validator for. Block explorers provided by SkyNet | Explorers are built on an excellent open source block explorer developed by Forbole called Big Dipper.

So who are we, our first validator project was with Akash Network. Akash is the worlds first decentralized cloud compute marketplace. Provider bid on tenant request for cloud compute services. Akash aims to provide the same services as AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure at up to 10 times lower cost. You can learn more about our contributions by visiting our Akash Validator page.
Desmos, by Desmos Network, is a blockchain built on top of the Cosmos SDK and based on the Tendermint consensus engine specific for social networking apps. Desmos allows you to link your other social media accounts to your Desmos profile to verify the authenticity of an account. Additionally, Desmos is the platform that new decentralized social media networks can be built upon. You can learn more about our contributions by visiting our Desmos Validator page.
Our next project, which is still in testnet, is Gravity Bridge by Althea Network. Gravity Bridge is Cosmos <-> Ethereum bridge designed to run on the Cosmos Hub. It is focused on maximum design simplicity and efficiency. Gravity is currently can transfer ERC20 assets originating on Ethereum to a Cosmos based chain and back to Ethereum.
Our next project, Osmosis, is inspired by Balancer and Sunny Aggarwal’s ‘DAOfying Uniswap Automated Market Maker Pools’, the goal for Osmosis is to provide the best-in-class tools that extend the use of AMMs within the Cosmos ecosystem beyond traditional token swap-type use cases.
Our next project is T-Grade Finance. T-Grade is “Decentralized Finance In A Self-Sovereign Regulated Environment” Our [Their] vision is for self-sovereign groups, bound by their local jurisdiction and regulations, trading P2P programmable financial instruments.
