OffChain Solana Validator

(Formely Crypto Drinks)


Tech, crypto and blockchain industry folks are plugged into the network 24/7 and are looking for an excuse to unplug once in a while to socialize. As we stay more and more on-chain, we see our gatherings as a perfect opportunity to get off chain to meet other passionate people in the space and educate newcomers. Offchain meetups are for socialising and learning from one another so that we can stay up to date with the latest news and developments in the blockchain space. Going Offchain provides a casual space to not only talk about crypto but also make friends with people that have a very similar interest to us. It’s also a great opportunity for those new to the crypto/blockchain space to learn from the old timers as they can catch them during their downtime.

OffChain has chapters in cities around the world. 20% of the profits from this validator will be donated to the OffChain treasury to be used for the good of the community.

Validator Security

If our server is compromised, it still would not allow an attacker access to your SOL, our validator team’s background is in security so we put a lot of thought into its security. Some of our measures include:

  • Firewall configured for ingress and egress filtering
  • Logging and monitoring scripts set up to detect any anomalies
  • Regular updates to both OS and Solana software to make sure any security fixes are applied
  • Vital configuration and account identity files are encrypted and backed up remotely to allow swift redeployment on a secondary server should the need arise
  • Solana validator running as non-privileged user
  • Server default settings aggressively hardened
