Well, this is the end of the project. Unfortunately, with no financial support, and the unrealistic nature of getting stake with a 10% commission, we have decided to stop running the validator. It pains me because I have spent many, many nights up till 5AM working on it, only to go to my real job with 1 or 2 hours of sleep, and I will see nothing for my efforts.

Thank you for time, and don't hesitate to email me at jgraves@quartz.dev or james.garrett.graves@gmail.com if you have any further questions.

Today we had an outage due to financial concerns surrounding running the validator. The conflict has been temporarily resolved pending analysis of the market, and the validator will still continue to run without our biggest investors. Please understand that maintaining a new, 0% validator when the market has collapsed is difficult to justify. Thank you for sticking with us, and don't hesitate to email us at jgraves@quartz.dev if you have any questions or comments.

Just a fast heads up: we are going to be updating to version 1.9.20 in accordance with Solana official guidance. We are also going to be updating our entrypoints for performance optimizations. This will cause about 20 minutes of downtime, but is nothing to worry about.
