To support further decentralisation and resilience of the Stellar network, SatoshiPay starts operating the network?s first globally distributed cluster of full validator nodes???maintaining a database of all past ledger operations, with publicly accessible history archives and the fastest available API for querying the ledger. One of Stellar?s core strengths is its underlying Stellar Consensus Protocol, allowing decentralisation without requiring ever more resources???as proof-of-work-based networks do. Every five seconds a new ledger state is agreed upon by validator nodes. Operators can freely decide which other nodes they trust for agreeing on the new ledger state. At SatoshiPay we know how crucial it is to have a diverse set of reliable validators on the network and therefore we already operated professionally maintained validator nodes in Germany for more than a year.
