StrongBlock, the pioneer in Nodes-as-a-Service (NaaS) offerings that reward node creators for their participation, is excited to announce it will soon be launching full blockchain nodes for Fantom, a layer 1 EVM-compatible platform.

StrongBlock’s mission is to provide non-technical users the ability to launch and operate full blockchain nodes to increase blockchain strength, incentivizing them with STRONG and native protocol tokens. StrongBlock provides a significant opportunity for expansion and support of the Fantom network.

Over 77,000 nodes have already been created through the StrongBlock platform by over 11,000 participants. In doing so, StrongBlock provides resources to networks seeking security, diversity…


Overview

As detailed in the StrongBlock Flash Paper, nodes provide crucial blockchain data, yet aren’t rewarded — so there’s no reason for them to stay in compliance.

To solve this problem, StrongBlock provides easy-to-use tools to launch compliant blockchain nodes in seconds, rewarding operators for running them.

With over 32,700 Ethereum nodes already launched and being rewarded as of this writing, StrongBlock has democratized node creation by allowing non-technical people to participate in blockchains and make a difference.

We’re preparing to launch nodes for many more protocols from our platform. Some of these protocols — like Sentinel DVPN nodes on the…


Sentinel, a one-of-a-kind network layer that allows the development of third-party and white-label decentralized Virtual Private Network (dVPN) applications, is excited to announce its integration with StrongBlock, the leading Nodes-as-a-Service (NaaS) provider. StrongBlock launches and operates full blockchain nodes for non-technical users to increase blockchain strength, rewarding them with STRONG or native protocol tokens. With this integration, the stage is set for Sentinel’s dVPN to expand in scope and utility, while creating new use cases for the network.

With over 5,800 operators running 23,000+ nodes, StrongBlock allocates resources to networks seeking security, diversity, and decentralization. By combining forces with Sentinel…


StrongBlock is pleased to announce that the $STRONG token is now listed on Antimatter’s ChainSwap Exchange. $STRONG token holders can now seamlessly bridge STRONG from ETH to Binance Smart Chain (BSC), or ETH to Huobi Eco Chain (HECO), with more chains to follow. Listing on ChainSwap makes $STRONG tokens more accessible across chains and the broader DeFi ecosystem, opening up endless possibilities for further cooperation, as well as added awareness and market adoption.

By providing a token bridge to BSC and HECO, STRONG users can now immediately take advantage of the lower transaction fees, faster processing times, and the ability…


StrongBlock is pioneering monetized node operation, utilizing DeFi protocols and NFT’s to further incentivize the node community. StrongBlock’s Nodes As A Service (NaaS) allows anyone to run a node without technical expertise, creating a seamless on-ramp to attract more users to build and strengthen their blockchain of choice.

By partnering with StrongBlock, DAO Maker expands its ecosystem to a community with over 11,000 nodes, adding this service as an optimal solution for our blockchain partners to efficiently enable network security in a fraction of the time.

DAO Maker will assist the strategic expansion of StrongBlock from Ethereum 1.0 to additional…


Overview

StrongBlock is the first and only blockchain-agnostic protocol to reward nodes for supporting the infrastructure of their blockchain.

Why incentivize nodes? With limited resources and no financial incentive, many nodes run out-of-date software, maintain incomplete blockchain histories , and are intermittently off-line. There is no easy mechanism to fix this problem once a blockchain is launched.

To solve this, StrongBlock has made it possible for anyone to create a node in seconds — or add their own node — and receive STRONG token rewards every day. More nodes equals more resilience.

At the time of writing, StrongBlock is rewarding over…


StrongBlock is excited to present the details of its “Nodes as a Service” (NaaS) offering. This initiative allows anyone to create a Full Ethereum node in a few seconds with no technical expertise.

In addition, a number of updates have been made to the protocol to reduce Ethereum gas fees and inflation. These changes require a migration from current mining pools to new ones. Most of this will either be done for you, or a tool will be provided. Details follow.

Nodes as a Service

Since the launch of the StrongBlock DeFi node protocol, over 350 nodes have been registered for rewards by the…


StrongBlock is pleased to present the details of its STRONG governance token allocation and Tokenomics for Version 2 (V2) of the protocol. This new approach includes burning 94% of the original 10,000,000 minted STRONG by December 1, 2020, leaving a maximum supply of approximately 535,000 STRONG.

Token Overview


We are pleased to announce the release of StrongBlock DeFi V2. The protocol will continue to be governed by the STRONG token. Released just 3 weeks after V1, V2 brings agility and flexibility to the protocol. V2 is the foundation on which features can be easily added via governance and community input.

V2: A New Approach

DeFi with a Purpose — supporting blockchains by rewarding blockchain nodes with the STRONG governance token — is still the protocol’s core mission.

To increase community support for that mission, V2’s new approach significantly reduces inflation, adds deflation, and better aligns rewards. …


When the StrongBlock DeFi protocol launched just one week ago today, on September 29, 2020, several issues became immediately clear.

  1. Rewards for pre-launch STRONG holders were too low for their considerable skin in the game
  2. Rewards were too high for ETH and LINK miners
  3. Lockup times for rewards were out of sync with risk and participation
  4. The governance model did not allow for rapid adjustments to fix 1–3

We made some mistakes. We’re rapidly making changes to address them. These include making governance flexible and agile, rewards harder to earn, and introducing deflation.

Our pre-launch STRONG holders will get an…
