Comment from Mita Liu, co-founder of Theta Lab, Inc
When Google Cloud was hit by a massive blackout on the east coast of the United States last July, one of the Theta nodes also temporarily went down, but the Theta blockchain continued to operate normally, and 100% operation time was maintained. It emphasizes how important it is to have many redundant validator nodes.
Adding gumi Cryptos as a node is an important step towards decentralizing the Theta protocol, welcome to join gumi Cryptos.
