What Is Cere Network (CERE)?
Cere Network Data Cloud is the world’s first blockchain-based storage solution that is optimized to capture interactions between users, (NFT) assets, and application which are individually signed and encrypted, along with potential value transfers, to be stored in a tamper-proof and time-capsuled data scheme.This guide covers the technical details of the blockchain behind DDC.
NTP is a networking protocol designed to synchronize the clocks of computers over a network. NTP allows you to synchronize the clocks of all the systems within the network. Currently, it is required that validators’ local clocks stay reasonably in sync, so you should be running NTP or a similar service.

Update a Validator Node
This manual is supposed to be used for upgrading your Validator Node or machine and keeping your Validator online. The process will take several hours, so make sure you understand the instructions first and plan accordingly. 2GB is really the minimum memory you should operate your validator with, anything less than this makes build times too inconvenient. For better performance you can bump it up to 4GB or 8GB, but anything more than that is probably overkill. In order to compile the binary yourself you will likely need ~8GB.
Availability issues with cloud providers
Cere Network should run on bare-metal machines, as opposed to VMs. This will prevent some of the availability issues with cloud providers, along with potential attacks from other VMs on the same hardware. The provisioning of the validator machine should be automated and defined in code. This code should be kept in private version control, reviewed, audited, and tested. Must have infrastructure that protects the validator’s signing keys so that an attacker cannot take control and commit slashable behavior.
Session keys used by a validator should always be isolated to just a single node. Replicating session keys across multiple nodes could lead to equivocation slashes, or soon to parachain validity slashes which can make you lose 100% of your staked funds.The good news is that 100% up time of your validator is not really needed, as it has some buffer within eras in order to go offline for a little while and upgrade.
High level architecture diagram
Cere Network node is a core component of DDC that is responsible for storing and retrieving the data. It’s written in Go and consists of a large set of components and modules, which are shown in the high level architecture diagram below. DDC nodes operations are coordinated and rewarded through smart contracts running on the Cere test/main blockchains. This section covers the configuration of DDC Smart Contracts and DDC Inspector nodes.
Cere Network After the account is created it is important to store the JSON file which the browser just downloaded. Using this file you will be able to restore your account in the future. The system by which entities are directed and controlled. It is concerned with structure and processes for decision making, accountability, control and behavior at the top of an entity. Public and Council can make changes to the network via referenda which will go through the referendum where all CERE holders, weighted by stake, make the decision.
Referenda are simple, inclusive, stake-based voting schemes. For instance, Upgrading the number of validators from 600 to 700. They are discrete events with fixed voting periods. They are binary, the only option in voting is “aye” or “nay” or abstaining entirely. Only the number of tokens will be considered for moving to voting irrespective of the number of accounts contributed.
