AIP: Whitelist Infura Nova Validator

Non-Constitutional

Abstract
This proposal aims to whitelist a Nova validator operated by Infura, enhancing network security and reliability by leveraging their robust infrastructure and expertise.

Motivation
To ensure the Arbitrum Nova network benefits from highly reliable and trusted validators, we propose adding Infura to the whitelist. Their proven track record in blockchain infrastructure will bolster the network’s performance and security.

Rationale
Infura’s validator has been running successfully for a while, participating in the Data Availability Committee (DAC), but was not previously whitelisted. This oversight was discovered during testing. Whitelisting this validator will increase the number of active validators on Nova, enhancing overall security and reliability. Their infrastructure and operational expertise will significantly contribute to the stability and reliability of the Arbitrum Nova network.

Specifications

  • Whitelist the Infura Nova validator.
  • Ensure compliance with Arbitrum Nova’s validation requirements.

Conclusion
By whitelisting the Infura Nova validator, we enhance the network’s robustness and reliability, supporting Arbitrum’s long-term growth and stability.
