Today, Smartlink, a decentralized escrow smart contract platform built on Tezos, expanded its involvement in the ecosystem by becoming a corporate baker.

Corporate Bakers

A company that sets up a Tezos node, is playfully called a corporate baker. These companies often include the decision to start up a node into their strategy to build applications on Tezos.

A Corporate baker is not a special type of baker with any special position within the Tezos ecosystem.

The fact that this baker will be run by a corporation simply emphasizes the amount of trust and involvement corporations show in the Tezos blockchain.

Additionally, setting up a node/ baker, enables them to play an active role in the democratic Tezos protocol and have a voice in the direction of core protocol development via amendment upgrades.

It essentially gives them a stake in the blockchain that they are running programs and applications on.


Today, Smartlink,  a decentralized escrow smart contract platform built on Tezos, expanded its involvement in the ecosystem by becoming a corporate baker.
