Validators are encouraged on the Bitcoin Spark network. Unlike other resource-heavy networks that essentially 'waste' energy verifying transactions, the Bitcoin Spark network is incredibly lightweight, allowing for lower-power devices to run the network. This opens up the opportunity for a much higher number of validators to significantly increase the validator amount, increasing security whilst avoiding the issue of network strangling that other blockchains would experience from having too many validators.

This functionality allows for unlimited devices to validate and provide processing power to the Bitcoin Spark network, with the double benefit of increasing the product potential infinitely and increasing the security of the blockchain itself.

Validation, 'mining,' and processing will all be routed through the Bitcoin Spark application, which will become open source for third-party application developement after the product has reached the market.
