I understand that literally anything can be hosted on TF, but the demographic that will innately be most interested in using our services are other blockchain projects. Specifically, I am referring to nodes and staking. These services require physical hardware to run and it is often done on a 3rd party host. Staking nodes need very high uptime to avoid slashing so many avoid hosting self-hosting these. The upcoming gold certified tier is perfect for this.
So how can TF get in on this? IM GLAD YOU ASKED
Two ways really. TF can deploy their own marketplace to launch nodes on the grid OR a partner can launch this marketplace with TF as the backbone.
How hard is this to do?
It does not need to be built from scratch. The biggest player in this field is allnodes.com, but they are not open source. However, Ankr is open source (edit: I think, not 100% sure). Check out these links.
Just like New Orleans runs on beads, this marketplace needs to be configured to run on TFT.
PRIME opportunity here, but unless you want a blinking LED on a breadboard, I’m not your guy to set this up. If anyone wants to form a team though, I’m all ears. It would be quite the undertaking. The commissions of such an endeavor could be enormous.
