Infrachain Becomes a Corporate Baker on the Tezos Blockchain with Nomadic Labs

Infrachain, the Luxembourg based non-profit organization for operational blockchain projects is delighted to announce its contribution to the Tezos Blockchain ecosystem by becoming a baker.

‘Baking’ is the term the Tezos blockchain network uses for signing and publishing blocks on the blockchain. Bakers are a crucial component of the Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism, as they ensure that all transactions in a block are correct, the order of transactions is agreed upon, and no double-spending has occurred.

Infrachain is currently running a node on the Tezos blockchain network, which is a decentralized, public blockchain that evolves by upgrading itself through on-chain governance. This blockchain network is supported by Nomadic Labs, a research and development company that contributes to the development, adoption and evolution of Tezos.

For Infrachain members that operate in the Tezos network, this is a step forward in ensuring that their transactions are baked in a selected node, i.e., Infrachain Tezos Baker, and hence avoiding contribution to unauthorized bakers.

According to Hadrien Zerah, Managing Director at Nomadic Labs, “Organizations and companies in all sectors now see the potential of blockchain. We are happy to welcome them and to see this community grow”.

“Hosting a Corporate Baker enables us to contribute to Tezos Network by supporting network sustainability, and further, we open possibilities for Infrachain members to know more about Tezos Blockchain capabilities,” explained Dr. Adnan Imeri, Technical Lead of Infrachain.
