HR, Guide Shaping Onboarding for a Remote Distributed Team: P2P.org's Practical Experience

<div class="kg-card kg-callout-card kg-callout-card-blue"><div class="kg-callout-emoji">💡</div><div class="kg-callout-text">In this article, we want to share practical tips and recommendations based on our experience, mistakes, and successes in our journey from 35 employees in 2021 to 145 people across 37 countries in 2023.</div></div><p>We will discuss the challenges we encountered as our team grew and became more distributed, the valuable lessons we learned, and the practical steps we took to improve our onboarding process, making it smooth, effective, and productive for everyone.<br></p><h2 id="getting-started-why-onboarding-matters"><strong>Getting Started: Why Onboarding Matters</strong></h2><p>Before we proceed further, let's pause and consider a fundamental question:</p><blockquote class="kg-blockquote-alt">What is the purpose of the onboarding process?</blockquote><p>In summary, it can be distilled as follows: to establish a strong foundation for the long-term success of new employees, assist them in assimilating into the workplace culture, reaffirm their decision to accept the job offer, expedite their journey to productivity, and have a lasting impact on employee retention.</p><p>Every onboarding process follows common developmental principles throughout its lifecycle. The critical question is how effective your process is at these stages and whether the objectives of each stage are being met.</p><p>Now, let's outline each of these steps:</p><ul><li>Pre-Boarding. First Touch with Company Procedures, Paperwork, and Pre-Start Setup.</li><li>First Day. Forming the First Impression of Company Culture Through Welcome.</li><li>First 7 Days. Orientation and Goals of the First Week.</li><li>First 30 Days. Goals Alignment and Team Integration.</li><li>First 60 Days. Collaboration and Skill Development.</li><li>First 90 Days. Assessment of Achievements and Future Outlook.</li><li>Further Development. Independence and Continuous Growth.</li></ul><p>Each step progressively lays the foundation for integrating a new team member into processes, the cultural environment, role understanding, goals, and expectations.</p><p>The success at the start and effectiveness in the future depends on the quality of each of these steps.<br></p><h2 id="okay-the-importance-of-onboarding-is-evident-but-what-does-it-have-to-do-with-distributed-teams"><strong>Okay. The importance of onboarding is evident. But what does it have to do with distributed teams?</strong></h2><p>We won't dwell on why onboarding is generally important and how critical it is not to fail this stage. But what is the uniqueness of building the process for distributed teams?</p><p>The answer is simple:</p><blockquote class="kg-blockquote-alt"><strong><em>For new remote-distributed employees, things are a bit different.</em></strong></blockquote><p>Think about it. A new remote team member often has to handle document preparation processes and thousands of paper details on their own. They can't just "go to the HR office." When (and if) this is done, they play the role of a sysadmin, trying to set up their equipment and deal with a thousand access points independently. And then, at this stage, they finally meet the team on a Zoom call but can't continue this acquaintance in the hallway or over lunch. All they have access to are avatars in Slack. In addition, they can't observe how the team behaves and what jokes they like, and it's more challenging for them to adapt.</p><p>When asking any questions, they face a delay in explanations caused by asynchronous communication. When they finally get them, it often looks like "study 150 pages of our wiki" or "Here's the instruction, figure it out." And the discouraged newcomer, hesitating to look foolish, becomes overwhelmed with information and confused. And while trying to understand the goals and expectations of their role, they often experience a lack of context. It's not a very pleasant story. But this is precisely how a new employee's experience in a distributed remote team can look if the onboarding process is not designed with the peculiarities of this environment in mind. We will share how to build it and our experience in the following sections.<br></p><h2 id="now-about-our-experience-at-p2porg"><strong>Now, about our experience at</strong><a href="http://p2p.org/?ref=p2p.org"><strong> P2P.org</strong></a></h2><div class="kg-card kg-callout-card kg-callout-card-grey"><div class="kg-callout-emoji">💡</div><div class="kg-callout-text">A bit about us. We are an international company with 145 employees working from 37 countries worldwide.</div></div><p>Like many companies that will find our material valuable, we operate in different time zones and entirely remotely. But several challenges are unique or specific to us:</p><p><strong>1) Geographic Diversity</strong> - We aren't just distributed; we work with people from various parts of the world.</p><p><strong>2) Language and Cultural Aspects</strong> - We use English as the standard language for corporate communication. However, our team members come from diverse language backgrounds, including Korean, Czech, Russian, and Indian, representing both Western and Eastern cultures.</p><p><strong>3) Rapid Growth Pace</strong> - We are an example of a rapidly growing company. From 35 employees in 2021, we grew to 100 in 2022, and now we have 145 employees in 2023. These numbers do not include our projects, which have grown with us and have become autonomous.</p><p><strong>4) Technically Complex Domain</strong> - The crypto domain is technically challenging and unique due to the rapid evolution of technologies and industries and the constant obsolescence of knowledge.<br></p><h1 id="chapter-1-onboarding-from-ground-zero-to-mvp"><strong>Chapter 1: Onboarding from Ground Zero to MVP</strong></h1><p>So, how did our onboarding journey begin?</p><p>Onboarding is one of our company's most mature and refined processes, but it evolved from scratch through iterations.</p><p><strong>It all started with the need to grow from 35 employees to 100 within just one year. </strong>We assessed our hiring capabilities and realized we were up to the task. But what about the subsequent process?</p><p>It was at ground zero.</p><p>Our only communication channel was Slack, and we didn't use any visual organizational charts or clear action guides for new team members. Imagine the bewilderment of a new team member who gained access on the first day and had to ask questions and try to navigate independently. It was like a tough scout school.</p><p>This became the catalyst for us to start developing the onboarding process.</p><p>We decided to approach its creation as if we were building any other product – by focusing on our users and conducting interviews with them.</p><p>We identified the key stages of the lifecycle by analyzing an employee's journey from the moment they accept the offer to the end of their probationary period. <em>(Later, these were revised, leading to the list we provided at the beginning of the article, but more on that later).</em></p><blockquote>1. Pre-boarding<br><br>2. The first day<br><br>3. The first working month<br><br>4. Completion of the probation period</blockquote><p><strong>For each of these stages, we compiled a list of pain points.</strong></p><p>The majority of these pain points were found in pre-boarding. An unclear onboarding process, extended time frames between stages, lack of navigation, and the need to ask a thousand questions about the next steps. We focused on resolving these issues in our initial iteration.<br></p><h2 id="step-1-creating-a-step-by-step-pre-boarding-guide-for-employees"><strong>Step 1: Creating a Step-by-Step Pre-Boarding Guide for Employees</strong></h2><p>It took us some effort to break down this part of the process into steps and define roles and responsibilities. Additionally, <strong>we spent some time creating a process board in Notion and formatting the process into a checklist for employees.</strong></p><p><strong>Now, the employee's journey began with access to this step-by-step guid</strong>e, and for the first time, we heard positive feedback regarding our pre-boarding and navigation. Starting from document collection, signing NDAs, and ending with contract signing, our process began to function like a conveyor belt, with each function having its designated segment and SLA, whether it was HR, Legal, or Finance.</p><p>This was a significant improvement, but we knew it wasn't enough. Understanding procedures and roles is one thing, but in a distributed team, it's essential to have a unified entry point to the corporate wiki, efficient and without delays, to gain access and familiarize oneself with rituals, policies, and processes. This gave rise to a backlog of tasks for the next iteration of our onboarding development.<br></p><h2 id="step-2-creating-a-unified-company-wiki-and-handbook-prototype"><strong>Step 2: Creating a Unified Company Wiki and Handbook Prototype</strong></h2><p>In this iteration, <strong>we gathered existing company documents, knowledge bases, and procedures into a handbook</strong>, dividing it into logical sections.</p><p><strong>Now, the pre-boarding process for employees included familiarizing themselves with the handbook</strong>, where they could find schedules for team meetings, a list of benefits and the process for obtaining them, and a list of systems and their owners. Notably, it also included knowledge bases from our ecosystem.</p><p>This step allowed us to make significant progress in navigation, benefiting new employees and team leaders, as we included answers to inevitable questions in the onboarding guide.<br></p><h2 id="step-3-scaling-and-automation"><strong>Step 3: Scaling and Automation</strong></h2><p>So, we found ourselves at a point where we had created conditions for a reasonably smooth adaptation process. However, there was one drawback – manual processes. As you may recall, from the beginning of our story, we grew by 70 people in one year. Our newly established conveyor of processes started to malfunction under the weight of the workload.</p><p>This led us to the necessity of automation. Firstly, we identified the most time-consuming manual processes, such as handling requests for equipment and document flow.</p><p>At this stage, we could automate equipment requests by creating simple tickets for the performers. It made the process significantly more manageable. Over time, the request management system evolved into a full-fledged service desk portal. Still, at the outset, we used the most straightforward and most accessible tools, guided by one principle – the <strong>one-stop-shop service</strong>. In other words, creating employee requests through a single window with subsequent routing.<br></p><h2 id="step-4-introduction-of-the-people-partner-role"><strong>Step 4: Introduction of the People Partner Role</strong></h2><p>Now, our new employees are entering the workforce well-prepared and ready for their tasks. However, a new set of challenges emerged at this stage - building relationships and cultural integration. We were growing rapidly and couldn't keep up with building relationships and immersing our new hires in our culture. What's important is that, at this pace, we couldn't simply delegate this task to team leads and the team. They were all feeling overwhelmed.</p><p>That's when the role of People Partner emerged, responsible for the people experience from the moment an offer was accepted until the end of the probationary period (now extending throughout the employee's journey, up to the exit interview).</p><p>What improvements did the introduction of this role bring to onboarding?</p><ol><li>Accompaniment and progress monitoring at all stages of onboarding. We could immediately identify difficulties and assist.</li><li>The presence of a "buddy" for safe communication. No one hesitated to ask the People Partner a thousand obvious questions.</li><li>Analysis of the employee's experience through probation meetings. People Partners conducted regular 1-1 meetings with each new employee to assess the quality of their onboarding. The notes from these meetings allowed us to analyze and implement improvements based on feedback.</li><li>Introduction of new employees to the entire company. The People Partner gathered information about each new team member, including their experience, hobbies, and interesting facts. On the day they joined, a Slack post would welcome them. We always knew we were hiring unique specialists and professionals, but with the introduction of celebrations for new faces, we learned how talented, vibrant, and diverse they indeed were. Team members had more reasons to build informal connections, which was a significant victory.<br></li></ol><h1 id="chapter-2-from-process-efficiency-to-business-effectiveness">Chapter 2: From Process Efficiency to Business Effectiveness</h1><p>Drawing parallels between creating the onboarding process and developing a product, we could say <strong>we had successfully implemented an MVP at this stage</strong>.</p><p>The process was working and delivering value.</p><p>By this point, several significant changes had taken place. Internally, we reached our headcount target (<em>100 employees</em>), moving from rapid expansion to the stage of structuring and establishing the company (which also meant a growth crisis).</p><p>We expanded into new hiring regions, introducing unique cultural nuances and more excellent distribution.</p><p>Externally, there were political upheavals in 22, leading to talent migration and eventually a severe industry crisis, marking the onset of the crypto winter.</p><p>These changes were so profound that they impacted the market as a whole, our team, and our approach to doing business.</p><p><strong>Like many companies facing a bear market, we needed to focus on efficiency and business results, ensuring the company's resilience.</strong></p><p>Therefore, we had to adapt our processes to this new reality.<br></p><h2 id="step-5-setting-the-expectations-right"><strong>Step 5: Setting the Expectations Right</strong></h2><p>So, we decided to address the pains that were affecting not only the employee experience but also the business as a whole. We made an unpleasant discovery:</p><div class="kg-card kg-callout-card kg-callout-card-grey"><div class="kg-callout-emoji">💡</div><div class="kg-callout-text">goal-setting during the probationary period didn't always happen formally, promptly, in a structured manner, or transparently.</div></div><p>This led to the development of the goal-setting control process.<br><br>We started with simple ticket automation for tracking deadlines, ensuring that the problem wasn't technical in nature but rather related to the essence of goal-setting.</p><p>Initially, we gathered statistics on the average time it took for a new hire to receive their goals. Then, we conducted a fundamental analysis of their quality, looking for specific indicators, deadlines, and alignment with team goals.</p><p>This allowed us to train team leads and hiring managers on effective goal-setting and so somewhat jump-started the process.</p><p>We then included goal-setting with a team lead as one of the tasks in the new hire's onboarding process, making them a proactive participant. Perhaps this was the most effective component.</p><p>Over time, our goal-setting process evolved, but more on that later.</p><p>At this point, we observed a mature process with clear pre-boarding, goal-setting, quality control, and experience monitoring at all stages. This was inspiring and uplifting for us.<br></p><h2 id="step-6-team-culture-integration-check"><strong>Step 6: Team &amp; Culture Integration Check</strong></h2><p>As you might have guessed from the previous part, <strong>many insights about the onboarding process came from employees and team leads through Probation Meetings and probation-end feedback</strong>.</p><p>We were pretty satisfied with the process at this stage, but one aspect still required attention.</p><p>At the beginning of 2023, we introduced the company's values, integrated them into the hiring process, selected ambassadors, and recognized achievements.</p><p>For us, it became critically important to consider not only key onboarding success indicators but also the factor of cultural fit with the team and alignment with our values.</p><p>However, our process only had a 90-degree view - the employee's experience and the feedback from the team lead.</p><p>So, <strong>we turned to the 30-60-90 days practice</strong> and implemented it as follows.</p><p>Before meeting with the employee at the 30, 60, and 90-day marks, the team lead receives feedback from the team. This feedback allows them to assess employees' alignment with our values, culture, and team integration.</p><p>What did this achieve? Our view became broader, and the assessment became more timely. It's better to adjust goal-setting or cultural fit with the team at an early stage.<br></p><h1 id="chapter-3-where-we-are-now-and-a-glimpse-into-the-future"><strong>Chapter 3: Where We Are Now and a Glimpse into the Future</strong></h1><p>We've arrived at the concluding chapter of our story. It's time to share what our onboarding process looks like now, the successes we've achieved, and our plans for the future.</p><h3 id="so-our-current-process"><strong>So, our current process:</strong></h3><ul><li><strong>Pre-Boarding</strong>: Every new employee is accompanied by a People Partner through the paperwork process and follows a step-by-step onboarding plan we've implemented in Notion. From the company's side, the process is automated in Jira.</li><li><strong>First Day</strong>: On the first day, we publish news and a self-introduction of the new team members, welcoming them to the general Slack channel. Additionally, they meet the team and have a 1-1 session with the team lead. A digest email with navigation and access information is sent to the new team member's inbox.</li><li><strong>First 7 Days</strong>: At this stage, the new team member is ready to set goals for the probationary period. The People Partner's role is to assist with any questions at this stage and ensure the process continues smoothly.</li><li><strong>First 30 Days</strong>: The first goal alignment session involves the team lead and an HR representative (typically the recruiter who hired the employee). Feedback from the employee and team members is reviewed, and adjustments are made if necessary. During the first month, the People Partner also conducts a 1-1 meeting to assess onboarding quality from the new team member's perspective.</li><li><strong>First 60 Days</strong>: This is an intermediate checkpoint similar to the first meeting, but the focus here is on goals. There's still a month ahead, providing time to address any difficulties.</li><li><strong>First 90 Days</strong>: Here, the final results are discussed, achievements are evaluated, and the success of the probationary period is assessed. At this stage, we know we're ready to move forward together with a solid foundation for work.<br></li></ul><h2 id="our-current-status-and-future-roadmap"><strong>Our Current Status and Future Roadmap</strong></h2><p>What have these improvements resulted in? It's time to provide insights into our current status, the metrics we are measuring, and our vision for future development.</p><ol><li><strong>Low Early Voluntary Churn (During Probationary Period)</strong>. For example, in 2023, this indicator was 0.8%.</li><li><strong>Efficient Pre-Boarding Process</strong>. Signing an NDA takes 1-2 days with an SLA of 48 hours, and the contract takes 72 hours.</li><li><strong>Reduced Time-to-Proficiency</strong>. 100% of employees complete pre-boarding by day 1, are informed about basic processes, and are ready to work. 100% of new team members have their goals set within the first 2 weeks of work.</li><li><strong>Time and Resource Savings</strong>: We've reduced the time team leads spend on adaptation and navigation.</li><li><strong>Employee Satisfaction</strong>: Over 95% of employees currently rate the process as "excellent."<br></li></ol><h2 id="our-plans-for-the-future"><strong>Our Plans for the Future</strong></h2><ol><li><strong>Improving the Quality and Structure of Feedback.</strong></li></ol><p>No matter how well the process works, feedback is always a creative and thoughtful part that requires continuous development through reflection. What message are we conveying with our feedback? What intentions do we want to share?</p><p>2. <strong>Probation Feedback as a Performance Management Component.</strong></p><p>We want to integrate feedback on probation goals with the company's overall performance management cycle. From an employee's lifecycle perspective, onboarding is not a standalone part but the beginning of the employee journey map.<br></p><h1 id="conclusion-and-takeaways"><strong>Conclusion and Takeaways</strong></h1><ol><li><strong>Identify Your Internal Customers Groups and Who You're Striving to Deliver Key Value.</strong></li></ol><p>In almost all cases, these will be new employees as one group, team leaders as the second, and HR+back office as the third. In our story, we focused on the first two, but it might be different in your case.</p><p>2. <strong>Invest in Pre-Onboarding Development; These Investments Will Pay Off.</strong></p><p>Pre-onboarding quality will determine who joins you on their first working day—someone confused and unsure of how to set up email or an informed and fully prepared professional.</p><p>3. <strong>Transparency of Goals and Expectations is the Foundation of Long-term Commitments.</strong></p><p>We expect commitment to the cause from people, but how can we expect that if we ourselves don't know what success looks like? Show employees the company's goals, team goals, and what personal contribution you expect from them.</p><p>4. <strong>Technology Matters, but It Doesn't Replace People.</strong></p><p>Regardless of how technologically advanced your process is, replacing human support in the first few days is challenging. The People Partner plays this crucial role in our company, but in others, it may be someone else. It's essential to understand that human support is critical at this stage.</p><p>5. <strong>Observation and Timeliness.</strong></p><p>Resources are too valuable to discover that something went wrong after 90 days. It's crucial to monitor and promptly respond to any deviations. Monitoring goal achievement, team alignment, and alignment with values can be aided by the 30-60-90 approach.<br></p><h2 id="the-overall-message"><strong>The Overall Message?</strong></h2><div class="kg-card kg-callout-card kg-callout-card-red"><div class="kg-callout-emoji">💡</div><div class="kg-callout-text">Use an iterative process. Start with something simple, actively seek feedback, analyze, and then refine.</div></div><p>This strategy allows you to tailor the onboarding process to fit your team's specific needs and culture. We hope our experience and ideas will serve as a source of inspiration and guidance in your onboarding efforts, demonstrating that continuous improvement is the key to a genuinely practical and enriching onboarding experience.</p>

Solana Running Firedancer

<p><br>The previous <a href="https://p2p.org/economy/how-firedancer-impacts-solana-ecosystem/">article</a> discussed why PoS networks strive for multiple validation clients and how Firedancer helps secure Solana. Below, <strong>we will share our experience of running Firedancer in Testnet.</strong> We will run through the official documentation for building Firedancer, monitoring options, compatibility with our current infrastructure, and check the client's stability.</p><h2 id="what-is-frankendancer">What is Frankendancer?</h2><p>During the Solana Breakpoint 2023 event, it was announced that “Frankendancer” (Firedancer with runtime and consensus modules borrowed from Solana labs client) successfully acts as a validator node in the Solana Testnet. We were excited about this announcement and the rest of the community. </p><p>The Firedancer team provides great build &amp; run documentation, which can be found <a href="https://firedancer-io.github.io/firedancer/guide/getting-started.html?ref=p2p.org">here</a>. The documentation is decent, so we don’t think it is necessary to repeat it here. You must update your Linux kernel to<em> &gt;5.7</em> to successfully build Firedancer (it should not be a problem even on Ubuntu 20 since its mainline repo contains this kernel). We successfully built Firedancer on top of our test server with Ubuntu 20.04. </p><h2 id="configuration">Configuration</h2><p>In contrast to the Solana Labs client, Firedancer uses a toml configuration format—some configuration directives bypass Solana Lab components so that you can use this feature in your favor. For example, you can bypass only the public key of your vote key with a directive <code>vote_account_path</code> and keep your vote key out of a server with a validator in a safe place. The key configuration section may look like this:</p><!--kg-card-begin: markdown--><pre><code>[consensus] identity_path = &quot;~/identity-keypair.json&quot; vote_account_path = &quot;DGjZLMwYmQU7vCPqyTxdnyKwaf1uu8eMdLeSmzqv2SZj&quot; </code></pre> <!--kg-card-end: markdown--><p>If you have experience running the Solana Labs client, the basic config for Firedancer will not raise many questions for you except for section layout. Let’s revise the “must-have” minimum options of this section:</p><p><code>affinity</code> - number or range of logical CPUs available for Firedancer. According to documentation, it is advised to allocate some cores for Solana Labs client and the rest for Firedancer. We had 32 cores on the server, enough to provide up to 9 cores to make Firedancer work (affinity = “0-27”). We also tried to play with <code>affinity</code> directive and found that Firedancer starts successfully with 12 cores at least.</p><p><code>net_tile_count</code> refers to the number of network queues on your network card. You need to adjust this directive precisely to the amount of network queues exposed by the network driver to OS. If <code>net_tile_count</code> exceeds the number of network queues, you will lose some cores for nothing. If <code>net_tile_count</code><em> </em>is lower than the number of network queues, Firedancer starts losing traffic (higher skip rate, lower vote success, etc.).</p><p><code>verify_tile_count</code> - in the official documentation, it is said that this directive controls how many tiles are dedicated to transaction signature verification. In our case, the command <code>/opt/fdctl configure init all --config /home/firedancer/config.toml</code> crashed if <code>verify_tile_count</code> was not equal to <code>net_tile_count</code><em>, </em>and as a consequence, Firedancer could not be started.</p><p>To figure out the number of network queues, you will first need to get the name of your network interface by using the commands <code>ip address</code> or <code>ifconfig</code><em>. </em>After that, you can use the utility <code>ethtool</code> to retrieve the number of network queues:</p><!--kg-card-begin: markdown--><pre><code># ethtool -l {network_interface_name} | grep -A4 &quot;Current hardware settings&quot; Current hardware settings: RX:   0 TX:   0 Other:   0 Combined: 2 </code></pre> <!--kg-card-end: markdown--><p>If you didn’t apply special tuning to your network stack you likely see a count of network queues in row <strong>Combined.</strong> </p><h2 id="startup-unit">Startup unit</h2><p>If you plan to run Firedancer for an extended period, you will probably need configuration for the process manager. You are likely using Systemd, so we are happy to share our Systemd unit for Firedancer, which we used for running our instance of Firedancer in Testnet:</p><!--kg-card-begin: markdown--><pre><code>[Unit] Description=Firedancer Validator Service After=network.target [Service] ExecStartPre=/opt/fdctl configure init all --config /home/firedancer/config.toml ExecStart=/opt/fdctl run --config /home/firedancer/config.toml ExecStop=/opt/fdctl stop Restart=on-failure LimitNOFILE=100000 LimitNPROC=100000 LimitCORE=infinity [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target </code></pre> <!--kg-card-end: markdown--><p>It is a very basic Systemd unit without hardening, so it is not production-ready and works for testing only. If you plan to use this Systemd unit, you need to adjust paths of config and fdctl in your environment. It is worth mentioning that Firedancer requires root rights for starting, so it makes no sense to run this unit under a non-root user. After starting the application and configuring the necessary system parameters, Firedancer will downgrade its privileges to the user specified in the configuration file. Note that the <code>configure</code> command must be executed before each Firedancer startup and after each system restart.</p><h2 id="monitoring">Monitoring</h2><p>Next, we would like to discuss monitoring-related questions. Solana Labs provides CLI utilities for monitoring validators, but there is no built-in Prometheus target (Prometheus is the de facto standard nowadays). We developed an in-house Prometheus exporter to monitor our Solana nodes (both validators and RPC), and we were thrilled to see that our prom exporter could fetch all metrics from Firedancer RPC with no issues and no changes required (you can find our Grafana dashboard with metrics fetched from Firedancer on Picture 1). Presumably, it happened because of the implementation of the REST-API interface located in one of Solana Labs' modules integrated into Firedancer. Firedancer is not equipped with tools for monitoring the node's performance in the cluster. However, it was announced that some monitoring tools will be added in the future. Before that, you can use Solana CLI tools to monitor Firedancer (<code>solana-validator  --ledger={ledger_path} monitor</code> or <code>solana catchup --our-localhost --follow</code>); we checked it works smoothly.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://lh7-us.googleusercontent.com/XmSQkFhG28aB9ttyhH7mf1L1Zjvsgl31N7kygVfA5Q0EUp7rGhIlMOjvjBmaKTITc8fCaLGE-PHnHpuXfYjQP4w-dhbNpEdxOtJOX2UW4uziiOCJeDqPZzpeu_KrmYeo68BHmsIkWPuqV-DN5raMWA4" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="602" height="717"></figure><h2 id="results">Results</h2><p>We ran the Firedancer client (version <em>1.17.1004</em>) on our Testnet validator for 4 days, and no accidental crashes were observed. It would be great to run some performance tests (Solana Labs client vs Firedancer). Still, it doesn't make much sense because Firedancer performance will be bottlenecked on the runtime/consensus stage. </p><p>Solana Validator has an “on-the-fly” key change capability, which we often use in our work. We asked the Firedancer developers about this feature, and they said it's not in the plans right now. Still, they have a long-term idea to make restarts as fast as possible so you can restart with the new identity key rather than trying to support dynamic configuration.</p><p>We are delighted to confirm that Frankendancer can act as a Solana validator at this stage! It feels like Jump Trading invested a lot of work and passion in creating Firedancer, and we in P2P appreciated it so much. P2P validator has been validator in Solana almost from the start of mainnet, and the upcoming Firedancer release in mainnet feels like one of the most significant events in Solana's ecosystem. It is a big step forward for the whole Solana community, and we look forward to testing out genuine Firedancer (with no Solana Labs client as a dependency) later next year.</p><p><em>Authors:</em><br><em>Anton Yakovlev Lead SRE @ P2P validator Solana team</em><br><em>Ilya Shatalov DevOps Engineer @ P2P validator Solana team</em></p><p><br></p>

Solana How Solana Firedancer Can Boost Network Security

<p>Firedancer's testnet launch was announced at Solana's Breakpoint conference, marking a significant milestone in Solana's journey toward global adoption. Let's explore its purpose and understand why it is essential to transition towards multiple validation clients, thereby enhancing network security and stability.</p><h2 id="benefits-of-multiple-validation-clients"><strong>Benefits of Multiple Validation Clients</strong></h2><p>Generally, any PoS network would like to have more than one client, and clients must be developed by independent teams using different programming stacks because of security and stability matters. The Proof of Stake (PoS) network will benefit from two separate validation clients. Still, the benefits will increase with more clients and more evenly distributed stake among them.</p><p>You may wonder what number of validation clients are counted as decent for the PoS network, and this is an excellent question. We believe resilience and reliability are the most important things for the Solana ecosystem. From that perspective, the Solana cluster must "survive" the outage of one validation client, which means there should not be more than 33.3% of stake on each validation client because if there is more stake, it will cause a halt of the cluster because of BFT consensus. Thus, the mandatory condition to sustain the outage of one validation client is to have four clients in the cluster with ~25% of a stake each (again, it should not be more than 33.3%). To secure the network, the cluster must have a fairly distributed stake across all available validation clients. It looks like a challenge to achieve this for different reasons.</p><h2 id="solana-validation-client-diversity"><strong>Solana Validation Client Diversity</strong></h2><p>Currently, the Solana ecosystem offers 2 production-ready clients:</p><p>1. Solana labs client (<a href="https://github.com/solana-labs/client?ref=p2p.org">https://github.com/solana-labs/client</a> )</p><p>2. Jito Labs MEV-enabled client (<a href="https://github.com/jito-labs/client?ref=p2p.org">https://github.com/jito-labs/client</a>)</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2023/11/firedancer-2-A.jpg" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="1125" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2023/11/firedancer-2-A.jpg 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2023/11/firedancer-2-A.jpg 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2023/11/firedancer-2-A.jpg 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w2400/2023/11/firedancer-2-A.jpg 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Although Jito Labs is an independent team, technically, the Solana client built by Jito represents a set of patches applied on top of the vanilla Solana Labs client. Currently, <a href="https://reports.p2p.org/superset/dashboard/jito_client_adoption/?native_filters_key=AcrJWCtZSXOF6QXvAhpOh5FKzgWiav7bjqfwzV8ipRkPiiXMKTAQ58DAKmfRKb7h&ref=p2p.org">42.5% of the stake is working on the Jito client</a>, which already includes two clients and two teams, which undoubtedly increases efficiency. However, both clients will be affected by almost the same set of bugs, including security vulnerabilities of the Rust compiler and Rust dependencies used for building the executable binaries. This situation is undesirable for the Solana ecosystem, which is heading to get its place as a PoS network ready to run world-level enterprise applications!</p><h2 id="introduction-of-firedancer">Introduction of Firedancer</h2><p>A new client for Solana called Firedancer was announced in 2022 and made a splash in Breakpoint 2022 when Firedancer engineering team lead Kevin Bowers from Jump Trading presented Firedancer, working progress, and exciting insights regarding performance optimizations applied in Firedancer. Let’s quickly review the high-level attributes of Firedancer:</p><p>- Written in C language</p><p>- Client development funded and guided by an independent company (Jump Trading/Jump Crypto)</p><p>It must be mentioned that Firedancer is designed to be highly efficient in utilizing hardware at 100% and, as a result, to bump TPS up to 1M (which is frankly insane).</p><p>Considering everything we discussed above, it is fair to say that Firedancer will be the first genuine new client developed from scratch by an independent team. Once it’s released, it secures the network significantly. For example, suppose there is a bug discovered, a security vulnerability, or performance degradation related to the Solana labs client; the validators can agree to move temporarily to the Firedancer client to give time to Solana labs to troubleshoot the problem and provide enough time to make a well-tested patch. Having several validation clients gives more opportunities to provide decent service for end users, so we strive to see Firedancer adoption in the Solana cluster.<br></p><p>*Authors: Anton Yakovlev Lead SRE @ P2P Solana team*<br></p>

Polygon, Matic P2P.org's Polygon Staking Guide

<h3 id="why-should-i-stake-polygon-now"><br>Why should I stake Polygon now?</h3><p>Polygon ecosystem is known for the best Business Development team in web3. They have onboarded all major real-world companies into the crypto industry, including <a href="https://www.coindesk.com/business/2022/07/13/polygon-joins-disneys-accelerator-program-to-develop-ar-nft-and-ai-experiences/?ref=p2p.org">Disney</a>, <a href="https://polygon.technology/blog/google-cloud-and-polygon-labs-join-forces-to-provide-developer-tools-and-enterprise-infrastructure-to-accelerate-growth-across-polygon-protocols?ref=p2p.org">Google</a>, <a href="https://polygon.technology/blog/starbucks-r-odyssey-beta-is-now-live-on-polygon?ref=p2p.org">Starbucks</a>, and others.</p><p>They are also expanding their system beyond the initial Proof-of-Stake sidechain, and now they offer a variety of solutions, including ZK EVM chain, Polygon ID for proof of personhood, all awaited launch of Polygon Miden - high-performance private ZK L2 on Ethereum and many other initiatives.</p><p>They have recently presented the <a href="https://polygon.technology/papers/pol-whitepaper?ref=p2p.org">Polygon 2.0 whitepaper</a>, where they bring the next evolutionary change to the essence of what a staking token is.</p><p><a href="http://p2p.org/?ref=p2p.org">P2P.org</a> could not stand aside, so we are launching our own Polygon validator to participate in all those initiatives! If you also want to join this fastest-developing ecosystem, you can start staking your MATIC tokens with us.</p><p>If you already stake your MATIC, this guide will also provide information on how to restake with<a href="http://p2p.org/?ref=p2p.org"> P2P.org</a> validator - the leading infrastructure provider of the web3 ecosystem!</p><p><strong>Step-by-step instruction - How to stake:</strong></p><ol><li>Polygon staking is happening on <strong>Ethereum</strong> as Polygon is secured by Ethereum (Polygon PoS is becoming L2 on Ethereum)</li></ol><p>2. To start investing in Polygon now, you should have some MATIC tokens as ERC-20 tokens on your Ethereum wallet.</p><blockquote>The most popular wallet solutions for Ethereum are Metamask, Coinbase Wallet, and Safe (former Gnosis Safe). You can also connect any other wallet using WalletConnect.</blockquote><p>3. MATIC can be acquired either on Centralised Exchanges (like Coinbase, Binance, Kraken, and others) or decentralized exchanges or aggregators (1Inch, Uniswap, Curve, or others)</p><blockquote>If you have bought your tokens on Centralised Exchange, first you need to transfer them to your wallet.</blockquote><p>4. For all actions, you should also pay gas in ETH, so you will be required to have some ETH on the same wallet (approx. 0.01 ETH, but this value is volatile because of gas prices on Ethereum)</p><p>5. When you have acquired some MATIC &amp; ETH, you can go to the official Polygon staking page at <a href="https://staking.polygon.technology/validators/162?ref=p2p.org">https://staking.polygon.technology/validators/162</a></p><p>6. Connect your wallet</p><p>7. Click Become a Delegator</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://lh7-us.googleusercontent.com/MWFe98iY0cuDXNHSQS2ugkCW7jb8XJYHrWJ_t9gZlfrP_oxpF847mJtvwRIZEZq0zXNF-3W7VmpONUzUip3xcOScBucqofaFbVPpjFjz2WHKEPb4uSudbdMtI84qiITrrdTzcmO8rAHl1oDdw96ljHY" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="602" height="277"></figure><p>8.  A pop-up will appear</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://lh7-us.googleusercontent.com/ZXeGWv2UXHRDJRU9Sghi8_fi2Oc_rEq5anCUtelMWjiuBQUsIu5JN4wfC5l43OeQgcstWmikou_ffopJt8ttE-qmgEdtaLmTyUdm0_bpuUSSSgK2QGgWFMOFc_OHAluc0TxNlmjvgF99-70VM8tpwtw" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="246" height="317"></figure><p>You will have to make two transactions:</p><ul><li>Approve the spend amount of the MATIC token.

Unlocking Polkadot Crowdloans Soon - Get an Offer from P2P.org

<p><strong>We're excited to share an update for the Polkadot Crowdloan Unlock and how our users can maximize their staking returns by allocating unlocked DOT with </strong><a href="http://p2p.org/?ref=p2p.org"><strong>P2P.org</strong></a><strong>.</strong></p><p>Polkadot's structure allows parachains to gather tokens for auction bids through crowdloans. Contributors to these crowdloans have their DOT tokens locked until the end of the lease period once a parachain wins, receiving the parachain's native tokens as rewards.</p><p>Notably, October 24, 2023, marks a significant date when a substantial volume of DOTs, previously committed to supporting parachains, will be released:</p><ul><li><strong>Acala:</strong> 32M DOT</li><li><strong>Astar:</strong> 10M DOT</li><li><strong>Clover:</strong> 9M DOT</li><li><strong>Moonbeam:</strong> 35M DOT</li><li><strong>Parallel:</strong> 10M DOT</li></ul><p>The upcoming unlock represents a unique opportunity for DOT holders, especially those eligible to claim from the various parachains, to maximize their rewards with <a href="http://p2p.org/?ref=p2p.org">P2P.ORG</a>.

P2P.org's Collaboration with Obol Network: Pioneering a New Age of ETH Staking

<p>P2P.org is delighted to announce our strategic partnership as large-scale alpha-testers with Obol Network. This collaboration aligns us with a company that shares our vision for revolutionizing the decentralized staking landscape and driving the institutional adoption of ETH staking. <br></p><p>In this blog, we'll explore who Obol Network are, their groundbreaking contributions to Distributed Validator Technology (DVT), and how our united mission and values are redefining the standards for institutional Ethereum staking.<br></p><p><strong>Our Collaboration on Mainnet Alpha Distributed Validators</strong><br></p><p>Alongside Obol Network, we have been an integral part of a pivotal testing phase in the Ethereum staking community. Obol Network launched their Alpha phase in April this year, deploying the first set of Mainnet Distributed Validators initiated by the staking community. With their core team having laid the foundation in December 2022 by deploying the very first Mainnet DV, the participation since April has been nothing short of phenomenal. Over 45 organizations are now running Distributed Validators (DVs) on the Ethereum Mainnet in either solo or multi-org clusters.<br></p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/OjSs_U9tzrjilyZ-liIGwhIU14ut0KYn6P_BgomZrLnile1PYmWE5Oo-4jSthTgotkcaw7GlUO2LPzpfJkDQYQ12VldyBOWPNnnvKISrpZKWAWt7vxgExYJ35igfJCAuoxtaJmRLCEJHqCIrzc34uZg" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="602" height="339"></figure><p><br></p><p><strong>Who is Obol Network?</strong><br></p><p>The Obol Network is an ecosystem for trust-minimized staking that enables people to create, test, run &amp; coordinate distributed validators, focusing on Ethereum staking solutions. <br></p><p>According to their website, their mission is to foster trust minimized staking through multi-operator validation. This will enable low-trust access to Ethereum staking, which can be used as a core building block in various Web3 products.<br></p><p>With their open-source ethos and commitment to public good, Obol is breaking the norm. Fee collections from Obol V1 will be funneled into retroactive public goods funding, embodying a regenerative circular economics model. In simple terms, Obol is about as trust-minimized as it gets, using advanced cryptography to eliminate the need to trust any single staking operator.<br></p><p><strong>A Deep Dive into the Testing Structure</strong><br></p><p>Our collaborative efforts have also extended into in-depth testing structures. Currently, we're actively involved in deploying distributed validator clusters on the Görli testnet, with varying node counts and scaling up to thousands of validators per cluster. These comprehensive tests assess various key metrics, including the effectiveness of validator duties, missed duties, and inclusion distances, among others. Additionally, the studies are focused on evaluating the operational cost efficiencies of running Distributed Validator clusters and the impact of MEV-boost on these configurations.<br></p><p>Obol Labs, the core research and development team for the Obol Network, is working closely with us and other participants to compile performance reports, making the data accessible for further insights. These collaborative research efforts are pivotal for understanding the cost per validator in different infrastructural setups and assessing the impact of DVT on enterprise validator profitability.<br></p><p>Through this extensive and rigorous testing, both P2P.org and Obol Network are gathering the critical data needed to deploy distributed validators on the Ethereum mainnet with complete confidence. We are committed to helping our partners optimize their infrastructure, better understand DV's capabilities, and share key performance insights with the broader community.<br></p><p><strong>What is DVT? </strong><br></p><p>So, what's all the fuss about Distributed Validator Technology? Traditional validator nodes in the Ethereum network present a critical weakness—they are all single points of failure. Obol DVs eliminate this Achilles heel by allowing multiple nodes to perform the duties of an Ethereum validator as a cluster. This innovation leads to an exceptional boost in resilience, fault tolerance, and—most importantly—security. To illustrate, each node within a DV cluster operates with a key share. Obol's DV middleware, Charon, collects the individual signatures from each node within a cluster and uses threshold signing to generate the full validator signature for attesting and producing blocks. For each cluster, as long as more than 66% of the nodes are live (i.e., 3 of 4, 5 of 7, etc.), the cluster will function normally. Key advantages of DVs include improving fault tolerance, since you can have some nodes down without the validator going offline, and improving security as the full private key never exists in one place, making it exceedingly difficult for attackers to compromise the system. DVT also allows for increased decentralization as operators can now collaborate in multi-operator validation.<br></p><p><strong>Joint Mission and Values between P2P.org and Obol Network</strong><br></p><p>As we transition into this partnership, we must note that our core values resonate deeply with Obol's principles.

Effortless ETH Staking: P2P.org and SSV Team Up to Simplify Institutional Participation

<p></p><h3 id="introduction"><strong>Introduction</strong><br></h3><p>Since 2018, we have dedicated ourselves to creating the pinnacle of secure staking solutions, especially within the Ethereum ecosystem. As of June 2023, our operations span over 50 networks, managing staked assets exceeding $1.6B. Recent enhancements to our Platform bolster our enterprise-level staking service, enabling easy integration for custodians, wallets, and neo-banks through a streamlined API. P2P.org stands as a vanguard in the drive for non-custodial staking at the institutional level, consistently pioneering methods to boost its widespread acceptance.<br></p><p>We're now pleased to announce further enhancements as P2P.org and SSV Network are collaborating to bring an upcoming integration of SSV distributed validators staking within the P2P.org staking platform. This enhancement will become a significant milestone for us, making it easier for institutions to manage their portfolio of digital assets and staking strategies utilizing DVT technologies.<br></p><h3 id="dvt-the-institutional-bridge"><strong>DVT, the institutional bridge</strong><br></h3><p>Our vision is to provide institutional investors, their preferred custodians, and B2B wallets with a single integration point to the staking-related services.<br></p><p>We've been working closely with custodians, self-custody services, and wallets and collected the following understanding of their key concerns:<br></p><ul><li>Being risk-averse, a need for comprehensive controls for all the risks associated with staking, including counterparty and slashing risks, is needed.</li><li>They need the ability to use multiple staking providers based on the staker's preference and decentralization considerations.</li><li>They have little appetite for maintaining multiple integrations with these providers, so ease of use and integration are critical.<br></li></ul><p>DVT technology represents an excellent opportunity to create a compelling offer for institutional investors that would address these needs. Once integrated with SSV, the P2P.org staking platform will also receive an additional differentiation that will help its positioning as a single integration point across various staking services, including direct and liquid staking across multiple networks and DVT-based staking. <br></p><p>While many can only offer staking across various providers as a part of a liquid staking option, P2P.org will provide a unique opportunity to stake directly to multiple institutional node operators.<br></p><h3 id="considering-institution-requirements"><strong>Considering institution requirements</strong><br></h3><p>Institutional staking solutions need to reflect important aspects of how hedge funds, VCs, Family Funds, and other similar entities operate in various technical and legal environments:<br></p><ul><li>Funds are typically managed via custody, a B2B wallet, or a crypto-friendly bank.</li><li>These intermediaries would typically be very risk averse and require explicit controls for counterparty risk, slashing risk (e.g., insurance), and legal risk, including OFAC compliance with the MEV relays.</li><li>They would often employ highly skilled professionals requiring control of the specific MEV relays in use and access to quasi-real-time monitoring.<br></li></ul><p>With these points in mind, we envision the Platform built with the following approach:<br></p><ul><li>API first: building for easy integration with the custodians and wallets</li><li>Whitelisted node operator set: Pick the locations and partners that would be capable of supporting each specific institutional requirements</li><li>Built-in reporting capabilities for better tax reporting and rewards management for their specific jurisdictions<br></li></ul><h3 id="payment-simplification"><strong>Payment simplification</strong><br></h3><p>SSV Network operates on a tokenomics model where SSV tokens are essential for availing the validator services. On the other hand, institutional stakers are familiar with two prevalent fee structures: monthly billing and an automatic deduction of validator fees from their cumulative staking rewards. In the latter case, stakers receive slightly diminished rewards, for instance, 95% of the total if there's a 5% validator commission, ensuring a hassle-free payment process for the validator.<br></p><p>P2P.org will keep this arrangement as much as possible within the SSV integration, so we must navigate the discrepancy between the clients' preferred pay method and the SSV tokenomics model.<br></p><h3 id="only-trusted-operators-need-to-apply"><strong>Only trusted operators need to apply</strong><br></h3><p>Due to the Platform's emphasis on institutional needs and the additional demands this places on node operators, we anticipate that the Platform will function with a pre-approved list of node operators, at least in the immediate to medium future. The P2P.org team will oversee the management and integration of node operators, drawing from the expertise we've gained through various partnerships with similar technical requirements. <br><br>Essential criteria for node operators will encompass the following:<br></p><ul><li>Reputable providers with proven track records for managing large amounts of stake and working with institutions</li><li>High-performance track record, as measured by rated network or similar tools</li><li>Consent to operate with the standard SSV fees assigned by the Platform</li><li>Commitment to providing the infrastructure that would be diversified geographically, as well as client software-wise, and MEV relay-wise</li><li>Potentially, commitment to providing slashing insurance<br></li></ul><p>In the future, node operator participation can be opened to a broader group of node operators.</p>
