Validator Requirements

Since FNCY is a public chain, anyone can download FNCY blockchain's pre-built node binary and manage it directly, but this feature will be provided through a document update in the future. If you are interested in participating in validator, please contact and we will provide a guide after internal review.

Prerequisites of Becoming a Validator

Validators participating in FNCY consensus algorithm form a consortium, and the addition and deletion of privileges are decided by votes of existing members. To become a validator candidate, you must meet the following prerequisites:

  • Complete KYB (Know Your Business) and KYC (Know Your Customer).

  • $FNCY must be deposited in the System Contract and all validators must self-stake a minimum of 10,000,000 FNCY.

  • Validator candidates are finally elected through governance voting.
