Flow P2P Validator Joins FLOW as a Node Operator

<p>Crypto-collectibles are currently gaining a lot of traction and the demand for non-fungible tokens (NFT) spiked with<a href="https://nonfungible.com/market/history"> over $2M weekly volume</a>. <strong>NFTs represent a proof-of-ownership for a unique asset that can be used to exchange in-game assets, to define copyrights for publishers or proof of authenticity by digital art creators.</strong> In 2017, the Cryptokitties game on Ethereum was the most popular blockchain enabled consumer application that revealed the hidden potential of crypto-collectibles. Three years later, it still remains one of the largest NFT games by sales volume.</p><p>Due to Ethereum scaling limitations and aggravating user experience, the team behind CryptoKitties spent the last two years in R&amp;D to build a new blockchain platform that could address mainstream consumer scale needs, while offering an unparalleled user experience. Flow is a new blockchain built for the next generation of apps, games, and the digital assets that power them.</p><p>Flow is designed for better user experience with multi-role architecture that allows the achievement of speed improvements without sharding, ensuring composability of applications. Resource oriented programming and upgradeable smart-contracts provide flexibility for developers. Flow uses proof-of-stake achieving relatively fast transaction finality. Though Flow is a multi-purpose general blockchain not limited to any specific use-case, <strong>it has the potential to become the leading platform for building decentralized gaming applications and power the growth of crypto-collectible economies.</strong></p><p><em>With that in mind, P2P Validator is excited to announce the launch of Collector, Verification and Consensus nodes to increase Flow decentralization as part of our commitment to support the development of open and censorship-resistant collectible economies.</em></p><p><strong>If you are interested in staking with us follow a few simple steps from our <a href="https://economy.p2p.org/flow-ledger-delegation-guide/?utm_source=flow_annoncement&amp;utm_campaign=flow_guide">staking guide</a>.</strong></p><p>Our team has extensive experience in setting up secure infrastructure.
