Validators have more responsibilities than creating new blocks and confirming transactions. They shouldn't be offline for long periods of time, nor should they ignore BlockX governance and participation within.

Node validators are the key players and stakeholders of a PoS blockchain, thus it is highly recommended to vote on the development and the future of BlockX consistently.

Being a BlockX Validator comes with the highest rewards of all ecosystem participants for preserving the foundation of the chain. Apply to become a Validator today and get your skin in the game to be generously compensated afterward.
