Run a Redbelly Node

Join the Future of Web3, Join the Redbelly Network.

Redbelly Network is an efficient and secure blockchain that has been designed to operate across regulated markets. We’re guided by the Democratic Byzantine Fault Tolerance (DBFT) Consensus Protocol, which ensures all transactions are conducted legitimately.

To uphold validity in our service we require Node Operators. A Node Operator’s core responsibility is helping handle the data demands within the network, as well as contributing to the decentralisation of the service. In return, when nodes relay this information the node operator is compensated with incentive rewards and/or transaction fees.

The Redbelly Node Operator

Partners To Host Nodes
The Redbelly Network requires partners to host nodes so that the decentralisation, security and performance of the network is maintained.
Each node runs a pair of consensus-SEVM processes to support the network.
Rewards are offered to Node Operators in the form of early adopter incentives, and transaction fees.

Why run a Redbelly Node

Why run a node?
Redbelly Node Operators have access to a variety of incentives based on their level of involvement as an affiliate. Node hosts are reimbursed in native coins from a dedicated allocation.
Transaction Fees
% of Transaction Fees
Redbelly nodes have the potential to support a high number of transactions on a high performance network. Node operators are incentivised with a portion of gas fees, paid in the native coin, derived from fixed gas costs on the network.
Purpose & Value
Becoming a Redbelly Node Operator will allow you to participate in this innovative and disruptive technology that will revolutionise the adoption of blockchain technology as we know it. Be part of the solution and apply to be a Node Operator today.
