Awesome stuff! Welcome to the incognito community @Easynodes :partying_face:

Thank you for putting this together and bringing it to our forums, im sure the rest of the community will appreciate it! I remember reading you also support other projects, is that correct? Which are those?


Yes, we also support ETH2.0 and XYM (NEM 2.0),and We expect ZEN will be online in a while.

PRV is an excellent privacy currency that we like very much, and we will also let other project communities understand PRV.


Can we know who is behind this service? Seems the domain was only registered a few days ago.


Incognito team, its safe?

This is a new service, so use a new domain name. The team behind it is the Easynodes team. We will also do AMA with some communities in the future to let everyone know more about the Easynodes team.
Welcome to experience and give us any feedback.


So you won’t identify yourself. That is fishy for me but I would not be a customer anyway, I can run my own node (for less than $104 per year).

I hope those who will trust your service won’t be disappointed. That is all.


I pay for my own hosting as well so I don’t plan on using them. However, it sounds like their service is relatively safe for the end user because all you provide to them is your validator key.


As you wish, we will pay attention to our services and provide more convenient and preferential services.Thank you~

I won’t use it too. It is a good solution though. It is the exact use case for the validator key. If anyone grabs someone else’s validator key, she cannot hijack the rewards of the real validator since staking, unstaking and withdrawal require the private key. At most, she can prevent the real validator from earning rewards by not running the validator software or causing bans after slashing. So, if she is a sadist, stealing and using a validator key may have some benefits psychologically :joy:

I have another feedback. The weekly price is a little bit high. I have multiple vnodes in one machine. My monthly cost per vnode was ~2.5$. Since I develop some applications too, I’m moving my vnodes to a more efficient VPS. Even in that case, my cost will be ~4$.


Hi @abduraman, could you share the specs of the server and the number of vNodes you are running?

interesting, but actually i encourage people to run their own Vnodes, Incognito should be decentralized.

I subscribed to @Easynodes for a week and it worked perfectly.
but I don’t know how I can pay for the next week, so that the service is not interrupted?

Thank you for using our service. :hugs: :hugs:
We have updated the renewal section in the form. You can fill in the renewal information in the Google form(, or you can email us the renewal payment information. We will also notify you by email before the service expires.


Tks a bunch!
