Introducing Gandalf, our Flare validator.

The Flare Network, holds a special place in the heart of Towo Labs and Bifrost Wallet. We are excited to announce a significant step forward in our journey with the Flare Network.

Announcing Our Flare Validator

We are thrilled to introduce "Gandalf," our newly established Flare validator (NodeID-EgJba99Q5iDcL81A27E111WANn9eZNj4v). Gandalf is not just any validator; it operates from Pionen, a site that was once a nuclear bunker, sitting 30 meters beneath Stockholm's vibrant streets. This location wasn't chosen at random; our commitment to security and robustness drove us to this unique and secure environment.

At 12:36 UTC on November 15th, we marked a milestone as the Bifrost Wallet validator was self-bonded for an entire year. This move signifies our dedication to the Flare Network and our users. As of now, the validator is operational and ready for anyone in the community to stake their tokens.

Current Staking Process

For those eager to stake on the Flare Network, the best current method is using the FlareStake tool. FlareStake offers a reliable and tested platform for staking, ensuring that your assets are handled securely and efficiently.

Future Developments

Our team is fervently working to integrate staking functionality directly into the Bifrost Wallet. This development is aimed at streamlining the staking process, making it more accessible and user-friendly for our community members. We believe that native staking support within Bifrost Wallet will significantly enhance the overall user experience.
