Node Application Guidelines

Welcome

  • Our mission is to support the global Ethereum community
  • We have these guidelines and policies to build and support a safer community where everyone involved can feel as if they are respected, valued, and an important part of the community
  • More information can be found on the Node Guidelines article on Medium

  • General Items

  • An approximately USD$14.95 monthly maintenance fee in ETH will be charged at the time of claiming Nodes-as-a-Service rewards
  • Failure to pay monthly fee within 30 days of due date will result in the smart contract automatically removing the node
  • Payments ARE NOT and CAN NOT be automatically deducted due to the need for the wallet owner to privately sign the transaction
  • Failure to pay monthly fee within 30 days of due date will result in the termination of all node rewards
  • NaaS applications are processed within 30 to 60 minutes (sometimes longer due to mainnet capacity). ByoN applications will be processed within 2 business days
  • We strongly urge that you double check all transactions, fees, and recipient addresses before confirming any transactions through your wallet. StrongBlock does not have control over your transactions within your wallet. You have complete custodian control over your digital assets, this also means that StrongBlock is not able to recover any funds sent or received to an incorrect address.

  • Violations to above policies:

    If you attempt to do any of the above (or similar), you will be notified. You will have 2 calendar days to resolve the issue that you are notified of. If you do not resolve the issue within those 2 days, your node or application will be removed. If you attempt to repost content that is not allowed, we will remove your node or application.

    Node response violations:

    It is up to the node owner to make sure their services are running to be eligible for rewards. Please make sure the node’s json file and endpoints are always available, as outside services will depend on them. StrongBlock therefore reserves the right to remove a node if non-response conditions persist. StrongBlock will poll the active list sbEthereum.json file and RPC endpoint daily. If an issue with the node exists (i.e., the json file is not accessible or an RPC endpoint is not responding), we may send an email to the account on file in the sbEhtereum.json informing of the owner of the issue. If the issue is resolved within 24 hours, we will close the issue as resolved. If the issue is not resolved within 24 hours of notification, we will suspend the node, node rewards will pause, and a reinstatement fee may be required.

    Please make sure you have a valid and active email address listed in your json file. That email address is the only way we will be able to reliably contact you if needed.
