Certus One is a validation company focused on technical excellence and deep understanding of the select few blockchain networks we validate.

We won multiple incentivized testnet competitions, including Cosmos Game of Stakes, and have identified dozens of high-severity vulnerabilities in and contributed code to various chains.

We believe that PoS networks can only become truly decentralized by democratizing the knowledge and tooling to enable anyone to run secure and resilient nodes. Our staking revenue is reinvested to further this goal - our founders are the lowest paid employees.

Blockdaemon is the most battle-tested node provider for 20+ PoS protocols allowing for an easy way to get competitive yields on your staking investments while minimizing risk. Our experience running nodes on every major network has led us to develop market leading tooling to help reduce risk of downtime. Stake for FREE on our public validator or run your own dedicated validator node.


Secure Validator Nodes: All of our nodes — from our public validator node to dedicated deployments — follow NEAR’s recommendations to deploy with a layer of sentry nodes to prevent against DDoS attacks, keeping our nodes running and participating in network consensus.

Monitoring, Alerting, and Automatic Healing: Blockdaemon Monitoring includes core machine-level metrics — CPU load, bandwidth, available disk space, memory — as well as blockchain specific metrics like peer counts, block height, transaction pools. Blockdaemon automatically monitors, repairs and replaces nodes where protocol-level errors may occur. When protocol updates are required, we make sure to apply them in advance so you see no disruption of service.

Dedicated Staff and Direct Access: Blockdaemon staff are active participants in the NEAR community. We’re dedicated to delivering the best performance, security, and developer experience, and we’re always here to help.
