Ethanim Validation Mining and related campaigns will start soon
In order to achieve 100% decentralization of Metaverse applications and allow users to have a smooth experience of centralized applications. Ethanim metaverse infrastructure is based on trusted computing technology.It creates a trusted execution environment for applications and a monitoring process — a Reliable State Machine(RSM), which puts the nodes running applications under the trusted constraints, standardizes and monitors the code integrity and running status of applications to ensure that the right application is running in the right place. And the validators are introduced to verify the trustworthy state of the RSM to ensure the decentralization and security of the system. This validation will be very simple and efficient without affecting the system performance. So there is no need for multi-node consensus on the calculation results, which can solve the problem of inefficient consensus on complex calculations from the source.
Validators operating mechanism
The validator can be installed and deployed by anyone on servers, laptops, or even cell phones at a low cost. They stake tokens for heartbeat connection and trusted verification and achieve consensus for the RSM, and the number of validators can be scaled up at any time according to demand, which can cope with the security needs of any scale application.
Validation Operator: The validation operator who is responsible for the node validation is also a “virtual miner” in the Ethanim system and signs and votes on the trusted state of the RSM, and these votes are recorded on the main chain, which mainly records the address and the state of the validation operator as well as the address of RSM being validated. The validation operators need to register with the main chain to activate.
Committee: The committee is a subset of dynamic validators randomly assigned by a verifiable random function (VRF) running on the main chain, with the assignment results verifiable locally by the validator but hidden from the network, which avoids attacks. Each subset performs consensus voting on the RSM in the network. To enhance security, only votes that exceed a security threshold for the number of validators are recognized by the main chain, otherwise, multiple rounds of voting will be performed.
Validation period: The committee members are not fixed and will be replaced periodically. The time of each turnover is called a validation period. The validation period is set to a reasonable length in order to ensure that the validation of the subset can reach consensus effectively and avoid that the validators within the subset have time to collude and do evil. Validators can verify each other and perform challenge proofs to obtain rewards.
Staking EPU to run the validator client and receive staking rewards by completing the verification of the reliable state of the RSM. Ethanim provides users with a very low-threshold way to participate in mining. The validator client is integrated into the application market client, and users can choose to perform validation at the same time to receive token rewards, regardless of whether they are using any application or just hanging in the background. The number of token rewards will be allocated according to the running hours and the reputation value of the validator.
Validation Mining campaign
The Ethanim team is making every effort to build a metaverse infrastructure platform. The verification node client, as an important part of the Ethanim ecosystem, is also under continuous development. It will be officially launched in the near future, and campaigns related to the Ethanim verification node will also be launched one after another, so stay tuned !
