StrongBlock, the pioneer in Nodes-as-a-Service (NaaS) offerings that reward node creators for their participation, is excited to announce it will soon be launching full blockchain nodes for Fantom, a layer 1 EVM-compatible platform.

StrongBlock’s mission is to provide non-technical users the ability to launch and operate full blockchain nodes to increase blockchain strength, incentivizing them with STRONG and native protocol tokens. StrongBlock provides a significant opportunity for expansion and support of the Fantom network.

Over 77,000 nodes have already been created through the StrongBlock platform by over 11,000 participants. In doing so, StrongBlock provides resources to networks seeking security, diversity, and decentralization. StrongBlock’s infrastructure will provide significantly more Fantom full nodes, expanding their reach beyond its existing capacity.

“The STRONG node army is growing and vibrant. We’re excited to provide Fantom node-launching to them,” said David Moss, StrongBlock Founder. “The node army marching into the Fantom ecosystem will increase awareness and expand adoption. It’s amazing to watch.”

Fantom has agreed to subsidize a portion of node rewards through a grant of FTM tokens to the StrongBlock community. StrongBlock also plans to develop innovative validator and node pool initiatives on Fantom in the future.

StrongBlock is also exploring becoming a Fantom validator.

“We’re pleased that Fantom network nodes will be offered as part of the StrongBlock one-click node launching platform. We are looking forward to boosting reliability and awareness of the Fantom platform,” said Michael Kong, CEO of Fantom.
