Since IoTeX is a Proof-of-Stake blockchain (Roll DPoS, to be specific), the platform could not function without a sufficient number of active delegates. IoTeX makes it easier than ever to be a delegate. You can either host your own servers or use Fastblocks to run a hosted server. With Fastblocks you can buy, set up, and manage your IoTeX node, as a delegate or a data validator, all without having to buy dedicated servers.
Also new - delegates will now have your own delegate portal page on which to view node performance, reward history, as well as manage settings.
See how easy it is to manage your delegate settings in this short video walkthrough from Aaron Basi, Lead Product Manager, IoTeX.
And becoming a Delegate with FastBlocks takes just three steps. Pay attention - if you blink, you might miss it. Watch here.
Please consider becoming a pillar of the IoTeX community. Become a delegate.
