What organizations run Ripple validators?

Recommended Posts

I've read an article in local newspaper mentioning Ripple as centralized alternative to Bitcoin. I wanted to react that it's not really true because the validators are run by various reputable companies but I'm having troubles to search them. I recall something like Microsoft running one, but from what I found it seems they only added support to Azure, not own validator. MIT's node is red in list of active validators (does it mean it's offline?). And I don't see CGI there.

So who is operating Ripple nodes? I mean other than Ripple Inc.

OOPS maybe not -

Kraken is discontinuing service in Washington state on Wednesday

I run a validator, however I don't want to buy a domain name (especially since I don't want a WHOIS entry) so I can't have it displayed as "verified".

Maybe it would be a good thing to have an inofficial list of all the xrpchat members running a validator. Or maybe at least we can open a thread where everybody can post the validation public key of the node he is running.
