Exaion, A Subsidiary Of French Energy Giant EDF Group Launches A Dedicated Tezos Node
Exaion is a subsidiary of EDF Group, the second largest electric utility company in Europe with a yearly revenue of $70 billion, over 152,000 employees, and is partly owned by the French state.
Exaion specializes in high-performance computing and is a cloud provider of blockchain solutions.
In October 2020, Exaion became the first French corporation to participate in the Tezos ecosystem as a block validator and corporate baker.
This enabled Exaion to become part of the Tezos PoS ecosystem and community while contributing to the decentralization of the Tezos blockchain.
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 big corporations show in the Tezos blockchain.
The blockchain does not notice any difference between a baker that is run by a single person or by a big corporation. All rules apply to all bakers.
As a baker Exaion EDF Group has currently over 40,000 XTZ at stake and a capacity of over 400,000 XTZ as can be seen here.
Now Exaion has announced their ExaionNode, a Node-as-a-Service platform, providing instant, simplified & secure access to dedicated, or shared nodes.
ExaionNode is currently being used by Play2Earn NFT game Dogami, multi-national gaming giant Ubisoft, Forge Societe Generale Group and last but not least EURO stablecoin Lugh.
