mp20 is looking to take a more active role in Osmosis QA work. The first step is deploying validator and nodes on the testnet and also providing a testnet snapshot service for quick sync. This will shorten the onboarding time frame from days to 45 minutes. Have a look at the WIP osmosis documentation on how to deploy on the testnet, the best place to start if you are interested in validating on Osmosis.
Roughly 6 months has passed since osmosis launched mainnet. A write up of our experience so far is long over due. Community The osmosis community is fantastic, specially the close nit group of active validators that help add features to the project and help each other out when someone is faced with a problem. The amount of progress this chain has made vastly exceeds anything else we have seen from similar projects.
Two weeks ago Bluzelle net-7 was released as a snapshot of net-6 with added features, most notably with nft storage. mp20 participated in the many testnets leading up to the hardfork. We were rewarded with bug bounties during the process. The new mainnet has been running without issues since launch, however there is still very little network activity. Bluzelle has announced a validator rewards program. The details are not clear yet but we believe validators will get monthly airdrops.
A couple of days ago we successfully migrated to dedicated hardware to run our validator and sentries. Running on virtual servers and block storage was not viable with the strain on I/O during epoch. After bashing our heads against the wall trying to survive epoch without disconnects on the VPS we finally gave in. The new hardware is performing well, missed blocks will hopefully continue to be a rare event.
This guide has step by step instructions on how to stake osmo on mp20. Before we begin here is a short explanation of the core aspects of staking and some associated lingo. Staking can also be referred to as delegating, a person who stakes is known as a delegator, the amount of staked tokens is also known as the bonding amount, moving staked tokens from one validator to another is called redelegating, withdrawing your staked tokens from a validator is called unbonding.
mp20 has submitted a PR that has been merged into main paving the way for mp20 to become a genesis validator on yet another cosmos based chain. We enjoy backing projects that have the potential to revolutionise their respective fields. Mainnet launch is planned for the 16th June. Follow Osmosis on Web Twitter GitHub Medium Osmosis Osmosis is a fair-launched, customizable automated market maker for interchain assets that allows the creation and management of non-custodial, self-balancing, interchain token index similar to one of Balancer.
This post will explain how to deploy and set up a sentry and validator on Bluzelle’s current testnet. The sentry will act as a proxy for the validator. You’ll need 2 instances of your favorit linux distro, this guide was done using Debian 10. Make adjustments where needed. 1 vCPU, 4 gb ram and 80 gb of storage will get the job done (for now) Install dependencies sudo apt install git build-essential jq nano wget -y

Quick write up of how to get a Bluzelle Curium node up and running on FreeBSD. This post is written the same day FreeBSD celebrates the release of version 13.0. This was done a couple of days ago, so the version used in this example was FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE-p6 Install dependencies pkg install git gcc gmake wget jq git gcc Install go cd /usr/local wget https://golang.org/dl/go1.16.3.freebsd-amd64.tar.gz tar -C /usr/local/ -xzf go1.16.3.freebsd-amd64.tar.gz
Want to keep a close eye on how the progression of the project is going? Check out the active branches on GitHub and see what the team is working on. With some easy research we can stay one step ahead of the pack and potentially see an update before it hits the official announcement channel. We can see there is a lot of activity on a branch called stargate We can safely assume this an update to the Cosmos SDK, the largest update Cosmos has received to date.
