Chain uses four distinct node types: council, acquirer, settlement, and community nodes. The nodes maintain the consensus and the overall security in the network. Council nodes, also known as validator nodes, are used by Chain and third-party entities by meeting the minimum staking requirements and other essential criteria. Validator nodes are mainly used to execute settlements and verify all crypto transactions on the network. Next, acquirer nodes are used to settle transactions on behalf of merchants or customers. A settlement agent node is intended to provide price stability and traditional currency payout for merchants. Lastly, community nodes are set to achieve public participation and evaluation of the transactions. allows customers and merchants to set up community nodes with the ability to read and process data on the network and settle among themselves. Community nodes are used when an individual community member’s transaction is to be settled by the community members. is thus constructed on a rigid foundation of security, privacy, and compliance.
