Marks the latest in a series of strategic partnerships Fetch.ai has made this year following their Mainnet 2 launch on March 31.
Fetch.ai and Validation Capital would like to officially announce that Validation Capital has on-boarded as a validator and is investing an undisclosed amount in Fetch.ai.
Validation Capital provides secure node infrastructure and investment capital to blockchain networks, with a focus on networks primed for commercial adoption. Fetch.ai’s recent collaboration with the Catena X automotive alliance featuring Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen, BMW, and other large automotive companies, points to a rapidly growing institutional and enterprise interest in the Fetch.ai ecosystem.
This investment will be instrumental in bringing Fetch.ai’s vision of AI and blockchain-based applications closer to commercialization. Fetch.ai will allocate the funds towards research and development of DeFi applications as well as further development of existing use cases.
”Validation Capital is excited to partner with Fetch.ai and will help grow the network as a validator and investor. The Fetch.ai team are leaders in decentralized machine learning and are building a platform that will empower limitless commercial applications.”
– Alex Altman, COO and Co-founder of Validation Capital
Validation Capital will continue to operate an institutional-grade validator node and support Fetch.ai’s ecosystem as it expands to a broader community.
“We at Fetch.ai are excited to work with Validation Capital as a strategic partner. Their expertise in network infrastructure and crypto-advisory will enable Fetch.ai to deliver industry-leading innovations”
– Jonathan Ward, CTO, Fetch.ai
Fetch.ai 主网 v2.0（于31.03推出）是迈向构建基于AI的区块链的重要一步，该区块链使企业和个人能够为DeFi应用程序部署自主经济代理（AEA），例如止损代理和基于代理的预言机与许多区块链网络（如Polkadot，Cosmos，Harmony等）可以互操作。
The Fetch.ai v2.0 ledger is being built using the Cosmos-SDK and will offer full interoperability between Fetch.ai’s native token (FET), other IBC-compatible chains, and the ERC-20 token via a Gravity-based interchain bridge. The Fetch.ai ledger is set to include a 分散式随机信标（DRB）并且结合了Tendermint，这使得该账本拥有了一个安全的共识机制和减少储存成本的压缩式多重签名。其中，该账本采用的 插槽质押证明共识（sPoS） ，会大大减少验证节点的计算负担，保护验证节点的利益。
