New staking nodes and blockchain solutions leverage Lumen global network and edge compute
Lumen Technologies is providing enterprise-grade servers at the edge of the network, enabling blockchain ecosystem Flux to launch new staking nodes and accelerate building Web 3.0, a decentralized, next generation of the internet built on blockchain.

"Emerging tech companies need scalable and decentralized networks, and they increasingly turn to Lumen. Our advanced technology portfolio delivers cutting edge, next-generation solutions," said Dave Young, senior vice president of strategic sales at Lumen. "Lumen's investments in edge computing give emerging tech companies the power to meet the growing need for speed and global network presence - and both of these are critical for blockchain applications."

  • The open-source, community-driven Flux ecosystem provides the infrastructure and tools necessary to support the development of Web 3.0 and speed the pace of blockchain solution rollouts.
  • The Lumen platform's edge computing architecture and vast fiber connectivity provides Flux with the fast, secure, scalable and decentralized environment it needs to expand.
  • This expansion supports Flux's next launch of new staking nodes, called Project Titan, that will allow more users to participate in the network growth needed to build Web 3.0.
  • The rapid growth and adoption of advanced technologies like Web 3.0, NFTs, blockchain, cryptocurrency and the metaverse is driving the need for access to a secure and highly distributed network of high-capacity servers.

"Our growing portfolio of blockchain resources and solutions encourages more widespread adoption and means that new technologies can emerge faster," said Daniel Keller, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Flux. "We believe that blockchain applications run most efficiently on the Flux ecosystem. We understood that to launch Project Titan, we needed to be able to scale up quickly on a distributed network. Now we have the additional capacity to add new staking nodes and ultimately grow the network."

Tech Talk:

The Flux ecosystem provides the infrastructure and tools to support Web 3.0 development through a suite of decentralized computing and blockchain-as-a-service solutions. Tools and modules within the Flux ecosystem enable the creation of new blockchain products and help increase mainstream adoption.

  • Flux nodes host blockchain-focused projects. The anticipated launch of Project Titan will leverage the Lumen network to quickly provision new staking nodes.
  • With more than 12,300 geographically diverse nodes, Lumen's servers enable Flux to scale its node structure and grow participation.
  • Flux nodes require secure, dedicated, enterprise-grade hardware to operate on and provide real, useful computing power to the network.
