CYBEX Witness Node Application Guide

Currently, the Cybex community is looking for like-minded team partners who can contribute to the development of Cybex. Ultimately, the choice of witnesses is determined by voting by all members of the community in possession of CYB.


The Cybex Witness is responsible for package transactions and signing blocks, which is a decisive basis for the stable operation of the Cybex chain and the toughness of community trust. Therefore, the selection of witness nodes is very important for the community.

Cybex's Witness nodes are voted by every shareholder in possession of CYB. The team that wants to be the witness node will have to bear the corresponding responsibilities, do daily monitoring and maintenance, ensure the stable operation of the node service, and timely cooperate with the community to upgrade the node.
