What is InfraBlockchain-Antelope Block Producer node

This section will cover the details regarding what a InfraBlockchain-Antelope Block Producer is and its role in the InfraBlockchain-Antelope network.

In the InfraBlockchain-Antelope network, block production and block validation are performed by special nodes called "InfraBlockchain-Antelope Producer node". Producer nodes are elected by InfraBlockchain-Antelope stakeholders via PoT Consensus Algorithm. Each validator node runs an instance of a InfraBlockchain-Antelope node using the infra-node service. For this reason, validators that are on the active schedule to produce blocks are also called "active" or "producing" validator nodes.

Before getting started as a block producer, you need to know a few things:

  1. A block producer needs to know it's role & fulfil the requirements.

  2. Having more block producers are healthier and better for the InfraBlockchain-Antelope ecosystem, especially block producers that are committed to transparency and being in a state of giving continuous contribution.

  3. Block producers are a core component of InfraBlockchain-Antelope network built on Antelope protocol.

  4. Below is the guide to get a node up and running as a block producer on InfraBlockchain-Antelope.

What is the role of a InfraBlockchain-Antelope block producer

  • Block producer nodes are decentralized entities that govern the InfraBlockchain-Antelope blockchain. block producer will produce the blocks of the InfraBlockchain-Antelope.

  • InfraBlockchain-Antelope block producers play a key role in the operation of the network.

    • They provide stability, reliability, security and extensive infrastructure coverage for InfraBlockchain-Antelope network.

    • Contribute to InfraBlockchain-Antelope development toolkits, so as to get noticed by the voters & stay in BP list eligible for incentives.

  • InfraBlockchain-Antelope block producers verify transactions on the InfraBlockchain-Antelope network by collecting transaction data and storing that information in blocks.

    • Once a block is prepared, validators broadcast the block to the network for verification.

  • Block producers are responsible for InfraBlockchain-Antelope infrastructure growth, community support and education, and financial support for development of InfraBlockchain-Antelope DApps.

  • Block producer need to participate in on-chain governance.

The next section will discuss the different types of nodes on the InfraBlockchain-Antelope network.
