Fast on the track, fast on the blockchain: Sui Launches Oracle Red Bull Racing Validator

LONDON, July 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Just a few weeks after adopting Sui as its official blockchain partner, Oracle Red Bull Racing offers a new way for fans to engage with the Team through the use of next-generation blockchain technology. Today, the Team is joining Mysten Labs in announcing the launch of the Oracle Red Bull Racing Validator on Sui. Mysten Labs, the initial contributor to Sui, will manage and operate the validator.

Blockchains are databases, but unlike traditional databases that are controlled by a single authority, the defining feature of public blockchains is that they are decentralized. Instead of a centralized entity controlling the data, blockchains rely on a network of machines to determine what pieces of data will be added, updated or deleted from storage. The machines they depend on for this function are called ‘validators.’ Without these validators, the blockchain would cease to operate. The ORBR Validator will, like other validators on the network, participate in the network’s consensus process to help ensure that only valid data is added to the blockchain, bolstering the Sui protocol. 

Oracle Red Bull Racing Team Principal and CEO Christian Horner said: ‘Oracle Red Bull Racing was an early adopter of blockchain technology in Formula 1, recognizing its potential to connect fans all over the world with the Team in a truly unique and forward-thinking way. Partnering with Sui will elevate that experience, making access easier, more secure, and engaging.’

Evan Cheng, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Mysten Labs, said: “The ultimate potential of blockchain technology lies in its ability to build community and increase connection. We are proud to support Oracle Red Bull Racing as they explore new forms of building connections with fans.”

The launch of the ORBR Validator follows the Team’s selection of Sui as its Official Blockchain Partner in June 2023 under a multi-year partnership with Mysten Labs to build on Sui.
