Solana Validator Statement
For running the Solana node I use all common Linux security features and software, including but not limited, secure kernel and software updates, ssh keys for connections, managing and controlling open ports, etc. I never share any of my security keys with 3rd parties. After receiving a new machine from a cloud provider I always change all security keys to new ones. I never create accounts for support provider service to access my machines.
In the general case, I use original open-source software from the official Solana Labs GitHub page (https://github.com/solana-labs/solana). As I have a developer background so sometimes I apply some of my own modifications. Anyway, all source code is completely official or mine, there is not 3rd party code. None of these modifications do lead to a violation of consensus.
Funds and rewards
All user-staked funds are fully protected by the Solana protocol. The validator does not have access to user-staked funds and rewards (which increase user stake every epoch).
My commission is 0%. All calculations are made automatically by the Solana protocol, I can only specify this interest rate. I will give at least one month's notice of any increase in the above value by changing this file. To be clear, I reserve the right to reduce it for a while and increase it back without notice, as long as the value is always not greater than the above value.
Why gist and not a website?
Using gist provides users information transparently about all changes with dates in this statement. I have no way to change this document retroactively. You could review all changes by using Revisions on this page. You could subscribe to get notifications about all future changes by e-mail.
You could find me in the official Solana Tech Discord (https://solana.com/discord) as DimAn#2366.
Staking with you my friend. Be strong.
