Join the Cros Community
A democratic system owned by its users, Cros is an open-source project created to enable a decentralized web and better society. Anyone can contribute.
The strength and resilience of a blockchain's capacity is in line with that of its validators. Validators secure the network by staking $CROS tokens, validating proof collectors, and participating in consensus with other validators.
In addition to any usual CLI parameters that you run Cros with, you'll need to add an extra two:
--validator This tells your node to try to validate when it sees itself as a listed authority on the network
--key <SEED> This provides your node with a secret key that lets it know whether it's a listed authority on the network, and, if it is, lets it sign statements to authorise the creation of new blocks
