A number of nodes appear as "verified entity" in the Featured live network nodes section on https://dashboard.stellar.org/. Who is verifying and what are the requirements to be listed as "verified"?
We will be redesigning the Nodes section of the Dashboard really soon so it's very likely that the "verified node" will be gone.
The reason we added a "verified node" badge was that we wanted to list both:
- the companies we work with (like IBM)
- nodes run by developers from our community (we often don't know outside our Slack).
By adding a special badge to some nodes we wanted to emphasise that we know that these nodes are run by a real company (ex. IBM).
