As you all know, the validators’ contest is complete and winners will soon get their rewards. Before that happens, however, here are a couple of important points:
- Not only with respect to the Declaration of Decentralization, but also as a matter of reality, we need to make sure US companies and citizens do not receive TONs. Yes, that sucks, but it is what it is for the time being.
- Free TON needs to confirm that validators are independent and real.
Just basic common sense really, as a matter of network health and security.
The whole procedure of ensuring this will be confidential and will be conducted by an independent third party that is not affiliated with Free TON in any way. All data will be processed by this provider and never shared with Free TON.
Once a provider that meets the necessary requirements is identified, an announcement will go out to everyone.
