What is a Pulsechain Validator?

Most people are familiar with Bitcoin or Ethereum Mining (Proof of Work). After Ethereum upgraded to Proof of Stake, a "miner" is now called a "validator."

Instead of buying mining rigs (multiple computers), you can buy 1 computer and set up many validators, so long as you have 32 ETH (~$60,000) per validator. It's quite expensive to run an Ethereum Validator.

Pulsechain is a fork of Ethereum and instead requires 32,000,000 (32M) for 1 validator (~$3,000 at todays market value). The APR depends on many other validators there are, however you can check out the latest Pulsechain Validator APR here.
