Hello! Is it possible to add GetBlock.io to the list of node service providers?

Hey Olivia, is GetBlock providing a Pocket node service? If so, please fill out the descriptions listed in the doc above and I’ll add it for you.

poktpool logo
poktpool

Supported Chains: All

Pricing
$7/day/node & 5% of rewards

Website:
https://poktpool.com/

Tracking System:
https://stats.poktpool.com/

Overview:
poktpool is POKT’s first fractional staking pool with no minimum POKT needed & weekly compounding! The minimum POKT needed to spin up a node is 15,375 POKT. poktpool allows various individuals to contribute any amount of POKT to sum 15,375 in order to earn rewards on their POKT balance. The POKT ecosystem thrives off of node-runners. The maximum utilization of all POKT via node-running not only benefits the POKT ecosystem, but financially rewards you as a POKT holder… even if your stake is less than the required node-running minimum! Various third party node-running services have a 5-node minimum. Even if you do have enough POKT for 1 node, it may be impossible to spin up a node in a timely fashion. poktpool aggregates enough POKT to hit all minimums on a weekly basis. A single node may take months to earn enough rewards to spin up a new node. In the pool, you can utilize your compounding incremental accrued rewards to spin up a new collective node, earning rewards on your rewards! POKT relays are pseudorandom. The more nodes you have, the closer to the average rewards you will achieve. By pooling your POKT with others, you should see steadier rewards than if you ran your own individual node.

This scares the heck out of me. Most of these services only communicate via telegram, so no phone, address, etc. Then I was told from the ones I could contact that I have to send my pokt tokens to their wallet that they set up. So we have no control and send $$ to someone we met on telegram. Shady as F! Would you really give $$ to someone you never met and trust them with it?

Feel free to ask in Telegram/Discord about the experience of other community members.

Would love to get liquify https://liquify.info/ on the list. We are an infrastructure as a service provider with a proven track record of deploying infra at scale. We currently cater for larger institutional investors and run over 1000 nodes but are opening up to smaller node runners.

Hi Jack,
I have not been able to login on the C0D3R website. It says that I have already created my account but it doesn’t take my passwords. When I am trying to retrieve, it is asking me to contact the admin. I have written to them but have received no answers. Please advise as I want to stake through them. Thank you.

You will need to wait for answers from their customer support. I can’t accelerate anything from my end.

We’ve been experimenting at ThreeFold to provide an easy node hosting solution to scale the Pokt Network. Here’s a preview of what’s coming soon :slight_smile:
