Censusworks LLC operates blockchain validation services and develops tooling for the reliable operation of blockchain validators.
Censusworks runs geographically-distributed validators spread across the globe to avoid correlated failure. Validators are regularly cycled between regions to avoid dependence on specific hardware deployments.
Censusworks employs extensive monitoring and automation to rapidly identify issues, quickly respond to failure, and to minimize operator intervention to avoid human error.
Censusworks received the highest tier of rewards in the Celo Stake-off and received the Master Validator Seal, reflecting our commitment to reliability.
Censusworks is running a validator group on the Celo blockchain and actively contributing to the Celo community. We are currently accepting delegated votes at the following group address:
Instructions on voting for validator groups.
If you'd rather not run the celocli to vote on a group you can use Celovote to automatically distribute your votes across the most reliable validator groups.
