Infrastructure & security setup for validators

  • HASHCELL’s IDC server rooms are located in Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo, and are equipped with firewalls and high security protection against common DDoS attacks.
  • External logins are authenticated via SSH and pubkey to the machines inside the server room, which effectively prevents external password blasting.
  • The machines are monitored in great detail by the Prometheus and Grafana services, which together with PagerDuty provide 7x24 alerts on abnormal status. While monitoring the alert thresholds for various parameters, 2 alarm parameters are set up to alert operations and maintenance staff when the thresholds are approached and reached, increasing the prevention capability and the ability to deal with them quickly in the first instance.


  1. HASHCELL would like to apply as one of the validators and storage providers of the testnet to establish a long-term and stable cooperation with Greenfield.
  • HASHCELL is able to meet all of the node requirements for running the testnet storage provider;
  • Once the application is accepted, HASHCELL will provide the necessary funding to meet its requirements.
  1. Based on HASHCELL’s advanced technology and successful operation and maintenance experience, especially in storage projects, we can bring quality storage services to Greenfield. We hope to be recognized by the community and to grow together.
