Controlling 20% of the total number of validators on the network indicates that the Flare Network has eclipsed the decentralization threshold of 33%, and can hence be considered as fully decentralized.

Additionally, the team revealed that the network has successfully entered beta mode. As a consequence, the distribution event which the XRP community is eagerly anticipating, will come into effect immediately there is a consensus on the date of distribution amongst the exchange partners, the team said.

As earlier reported by The Crypto Basic, the Flare Network roadmap which was released early-October indicates that the Initial Distribution Period is the next event to occur following the confirmation that 66% of validator power is independent of the Flare team, once the exchange partners agree on a date for the event.

During the distribution, the Flare Time Series Oracle (FTSO) providers that are qualified will receive an opportunity to make validator contributions to the network. Holders of the FLR asset can then delegate their tokens to desired FTSO providers.
