Become a validator
Validators provide computing resources to keep the Vara Network secure, performant and censorship-resistant.
Running a validator node is an essential part of operating the network.
Becoming a validator is not only about incentives, but also about playing the key role of contributing to the network's security, and validating that all transactions that occur are genuine and correct.
How it works
When a transaction occurs, validators receive fees for program execution. This works by having each message sent between actors consume a small amount of the user’s balance to incentivize validation.
By adopting this model, all parties involved are winners as users can interact with dApps on a secure, scalable and reliable network, dApps can achieve true mass adoption and validators are incentivized for securing the network.
