Leading Validators Thrive on CrossFi Testnet: A New Era of Blockchain Success

These narratives are a testament to the hard work and perseverance of our validators, who have navigated a challenging path to contribute to the growth and stability of the CrossFi ecosystem.


The journey of becoming a validator on the CrossFi network is not for the faint-hearted. It demands resilience, technical expertise, and unwavering dedication. As we approach the conclusion of our Testnet phase next month and eagerly prepare for the mainnet launch, we want to share some inspiring success stories. These narratives are a testament to the hard work and perseverance of our validators, who have navigated a challenging path to contribute to the growth and stability of the CrossFi ecosystem.

The Journey

The Beginning

The journey begins with the rigorous application process, where potential validators must demonstrate their ability to manage and secure nodes efficiently. The competition is fierce. Validators compete for a place among the top 64 validators based on total MPX staking, node functionality, stability, and dedicated infrastructure. The competition is intense, with validators vying to showcase their superior technical capabilities and community support. This phase is about technical skills, resilience, and community engagement.

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

To remain competitive, validators must meet specific KPIs:

  • Node Functionality and Stability: Performing all necessary operations and minimizing block skipping.
  • Dedicated Infrastructure: Using exclusive hardware resources to enhance decentralization.
  • Service Availability: Providing reliable RPC/API services for node interaction.

Key Strategies & Tasks

Creating Comprehensive Instructions for Users: Simplifying complex processes was crucial. Validators developed step-by-step guides to help users set up wallets, connect to the testnet, and interact with the platform. Visual aids like screenshots and regular documentation updates played a significant role in enhancing clarity and user experience.

Maintaining Open Communication with the Community: Engaging with the community through multiple channels, including social media, forums, and newsletters, was essential. Validators highlighted the benefits and incentives of participating in the CrossFi Chain Testnet and directed users to valuable resources like the XFI TestPad and the CrossFi Foundation website.

Engaging with Both Testnet and Mainnet: Validators encouraged users to seamlessly transition between the testnet and mainnet, explore additional features, and contribute to the ecosystem’s growth. This holistic approach ensured users gained a well-rounded experience and understood the broader impact of their participation.

The Challenges

Validators faced numerous challenges during the Testnet period. Technical difficulties, frustrations over perceived unfairness, and the constant pressure to maintain high performance were part of their daily routine. Yet, through these adversities, they found strength in the community, the support from project admins, and their sheer determination to succeed.

Success Stories

CrossFi Guardian: CrossFi Guardian’s journey is a story of resilience.

ITRocket: ITRocket’s journey is marked by leadership and generosity. With extensive experience on the Testnet, they guided others, sharing knowledge and helping avoid common pitfalls.
