3. Description of Services
Validator's operate a full-nodes on the Cosmos network. We participate in consensus by broadcasting votes which contain cryptographic signatures signed with our private key.
To completely align our interests with those of our delegators, Firmamint Inc. will be staking through our own service.
Firmamint Inc. use a hybrid of cloud and physical servers. Cloud is used for scalability and availability, while the physical servers are used to secure sensitive key material.
If you as a User of the service are a delegator, you accept and fully comply with the ToS and you confirm to have full knowledge about being a delegator and the risks associated with it.
You’re also aware and accept that delegators share the revenue of their validator, but they also share the risk. In terms of revenue, validators and delegators differ in that validators can apply a commission on the revenue that goes to their delegator before it is distributed. In terms of risk, delegators' Atoms can be slashed if their validator misbehave or malfunction.
By accepting to be a delegator you accept the following risks:
First, staked Atoms are locked up, and retrieving them requires a 3-week waiting period (“unbonding period”). Additionally, if a validator misbehaves or malfunction, a portion of its total stake can be slashed (i.e. destroyed). This includes the stake of their delegators.
By being a delegator, you also are aware about and accept the following regarding sentry nodes and validator nodes:
The sentries are hosted on multiple cloud based services and are provided as a public utility to the Cosmos network. The sentry nodes offer protection from outside interference, such as denial-of-service attacks or attempts to compromise security.
The validator nodes are co-located in a secure datacenter and connect exclusively through sentry nodes to the Cosmos network. Using single-tenant, physical servers has the added benefit of mitigating current and future speculative execution and cache side-channel attacks.
