Node Hosts

Node hosts run the various types of servers and applications that are needed to keep the network up and running.

Overview of Nodes

Currently, to power the OmniFlix Network, 3 types of nodes are used/have been implemented:
  1. 1.
    Validator
  2. 2.
    Relayer
  3. 3.
    Storage
Let's take a quick look at each of these.

1) Validator

  • A validator node is the equivalent of a miner in a proof-of-stake network like the Bitcoin or others.
  • Currently a validator is reponsible for:
    • block production
    • governance participation (on behalf of delegators)
    and more!
  • To know more about a validator and what a validator does in a proof-of-stake context, refer to the official Cosmos documentation for a clear explanation.
  • To run a validator on the OmniFlix Network testnet, visit our GitHub repository.

2) Relayer

  • A relayer is a node that moves packets from one chain to another and is a core component in the communication with other chains.
  • Relayer Node Hosts typically run Relayer infrastructure for more than a single chain.
If you are interested to run a Relayer, reach out to us on our website.

3) Storage

  • A storage node contributes to the storage and delivery of content within the network.
  • Storage Nodes are redundant in nature and will most likely have a limit on the total storage that can be contributed to the network.
  • Redundant copies of the content hosted by a single storage node are maintained in the network to prevent loss of content in the case of a technical glitch.
If you are interested to run a Storage Node, reach out to us on our website.
