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.
Chorus One is a leading staking provider that has helped launch and is now operating on more than 14 different networks including Cosmos, Solana, and NEAR currently securing around $90 million of staked tokens and providing data to DeFi and other decentralized applications via our oracle nodes, e.g. on ChainLink.
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.
Infrastructure: Blockdaemon is committed to democratizing node-operations by providing simple tooling to connect to blockchains and to participate in consensus. Spectrum of tools ranges from fully-managed services and monitoring solutions for custodians, exchanges and financial institutions to high-performance, multi-protocol APIs. Blockdaemon is ISO-27001 and SOC-2 compliant, with $500mm+ in token value staked in POS nodes. Blockdaemon’s self-healing nodes provide best-in-class uptime, and have deployed over 1,000 full nodes – the most battle-tested in the node infrastructure industry.

We believe the best indicator is numbers, not words, so just look at our stats on near-staking dashboard.
Our validator lux.poolv1.near is in the minority, who is online from the firts days and have a stable up-time without missing epochs, add to this the average commission among all validators (5%) and you’ll get maximum Profit and restful sleep if you do shaking with us.
How to set up a telegram bot for Monitoring Alerts
This bot was approved in Stake Wars competition as one of the solutions to monitor your server and validator node.
For new users is was and still one of the easiest way to get all necessary information about a node, which need just few commands in terminal to setup.
Thank you for your list which I believe would be helpful for NEAR supporters.
I wish we have a list officially appearing in our near.wallet/staking page in order to help stakers easily choose their validators based on full important information such as fee, original website/NEAR forum link, time being a validator, how much NEAR staking in the node…
That would be great for us - the enthusiastic supporter of NEAR ^^.
Thank you so much.
