What is SafeCoin?
SafeCoin is the first community version of solanas blockchain. Therefore, it is a proof of stake cryptocurrency that is fast, environmentally friendly, private, accessible and affordable. It can be scaled up easily, which is why it is the foundation of all SafeCoin projects.
What do I need to run as SafeCoin validator?
To run as SafeCoin validator you need a CPU with 2 Core with AVX support, a minimum 8GB memorycard, 20GB (for pruned) or 2TB (for full-history) and bandwidth of minimum 5 Mbps. For further information see also what we propose on staking SafeCoin.
Besides, we strongly recommend you to take a look at our validator set up instructions to get more information on how to set up your validator.
Where can I buy a SafeCoin Nano Ledger?
What is the difference between a pruned and a full-history validator?
Running a full-history node on the network helps increase the decentralization of SafeCoin. A full-history node records and maintains a full copy of the SafeCoin ledger.
Besides, there are some differences in the hardware requirements, with the pruned one being less demanding in terms of ssd capacity.
