A Pecu Validator Node is a very specific type of full node that has a sole purpose of verifying and processing every transaction on the Pecu Novus Network. This holds true for coin or token transactions of all type as well as NFT and other digital asset transactions.
The validators play a very key role in the continued decentralization of the Pecu Novus Network and the continued scalability and speed of the network as a whole. Security and inclusion are a big part of the network and with MegaHoot Technologies adding extreme value to the entire network, there are encryption protocols in place that protect the network, network members, validators and applications built on the backbone of Pecu Novus.
The Inclusion part is an important one as Pecu Novus does not use a Proof of Work or Proof of Stake model with the validator nodes, we use Proof of Time. The reason for this is that it allows anyone in the world to become a validator despite their economic level, as long as they have a basic computer with an internet connection then they have the opportunity.
What Coding Knowledge Do Validators Need?
That is a simple answer, NONE.
The Pecu Validator Client when rolled out works autonomously, so there is actually no human involvement in the process other than activating the node. The Validator simply downloads the client and installs it on their computer, once it is activated then the time it is active will be registered and transactions will flow through their node.
It was very important to have a validator system that allowed anyone to participate and build.
How Can I Become a Validator?
That is a simple answer as well.
First, you need to have a Pecu Digital Wallet and use your computer to access the Pecu Terminal.
Second, you need to go to the Validator area of the Pecu Terminal to activate your node and download the Validator Node Client.
Third, you need to install the Validator Node Client on your computer and launch it, the system will do the rest.
