Bitcoin, Babylon Understanding Non-Custodial Staking on the Babylon

<p></p><h2 id="what-is-babylon">What is Babylon?</h2><p><a href="https://twitter.com/babylon_chain?ref=p2p.org" rel="noreferrer">Babylon</a> is <strong>a revolutionary staking protocol that allows Bitcoin holders to provide their BTC assets to secure PoS systems</strong> and receive a yield on their assets.</p><blockquote>The idea of BTC staking is relatively new and needs further explanation. When discussing BTC staking, many people associate it with locking BTC in some multisig account, bridging BTC to other chains, and minting new synthetic tokens. The addition of third parties always reduces security. However, that's not the case with Babylon.</blockquote><p>To avoid misunderstandings, let’s clarify that Babylon is a Bitcoin Staking Protocol that provides shared security for PoS systems and allows Bitcoin holders to delegate their BTC to Finality Providers, who can then provide Bitcoin security to a consumer PoS chain or DA layer. On the other hand, there is also the Babylon chain, built on Cosmos SDK, which receives security from the Babylon Bitcoin Staking Protocol and acts as the first chain that Finality Providers can support. However, <strong>Babylon plans to support different PoS systems from various blockchain ecosystems and provide them access to shared security collateral with BTC.</strong></p><p>In this article, we’ll focus on the Babylon Bitcoin Staking Protocol. <strong>We’ll show you how the staking flow works</strong>, how Babylon applies non-custodial features, and why the process is secure.</p><h2 id="core-parts-of-the-babylon-bitcoin-staking-protocol">Core Parts of the Babylon Bitcoin Staking Protocol</h2><p>The Babylon Bitcoin Staking Protocol consists of two key protocols designed to enhance security in decentralized systems. These protocols leverage the robust features of both Bitcoin and Babylon:</p><ol><li><strong>Bitcoin Timestamping Protocol. </strong>This protocol in Babylon allows data from PoS systems, such as blockchains or DA layers, to be securely timestamped on the Bitcoin network. The protocol enables any data submitted to Babylon to receive Bitcoin timestamps, enhancing their security as more blocks are added over time. This increased immutability helps protect PoS systems from long-range attacks, improving their integrity. Additionally, this protocol facilitates data exchange between Bitcoin and other PoS systems that utilize BTC for security.</li><li><strong>Bitcoin Staking Protocol.&nbsp;</strong>Babylon’s Bitcoin Staking Protocol enables Bitcoin to secure decentralized systems through trustless, self-custodial staking. Bitcoin holders can stake their Bitcoin for PoS systems without needing third-party custody, bridges, or wrapping. This protocol offers economic security guarantees to PoS systems, allowing for slashing if necessary, and ensures efficient stake unbonding to enhance liquidity for Bitcoin holders. It’s designed to be modular and compatible with various PoS consensus protocols, serving as a foundation for building restaking protocols.</li></ol><p>These protocols form a solid foundation for Babylon, providing the ability to stake BTC and exchange data between Bitcoin and chains that use BTC as security collateral.</p><h2 id="how-does-staking-work">How does staking work?</h2><p>Before describing the entire flow, <strong>let’s briefly talk about the staking process's cornerstones: the Finality Providers' role, a time lock, and an EOTS signature.</strong></p><h3 id="finality-providers">Finality Providers</h3><p>Babylon introduces an additional layer of finality that can be added on top of CometBFT or other consensus protocols. Finality Providers are responsible for voting in a finality round on top of these consensus protocols.<br>Finality Providers can receive voting power delegations from BTC stakers and earn commissions from the staking rewards denominated in the tokens of the networks they support.</p><p>If a Cosmos chain decides to integrate with the Babylon Bitcoin Staking Protocol, they need to onboard Finality Providers in addition to their existing set of validators. Additionally, they must incentivize Finality Providers to secure the network by providing additional rewards.</p><p>This dual-layer security system creates a strong shared security that can be used by various PoS systems. <strong>By combining the efforts of current validators and Finality Providers, Babylon offers a solid foundation that PoS systems can use to boost their own security.</strong> This shared security strengthens the Babylon network and provides a reliable security setup for other networks and applications that connect with Babylon.</p><h3 id="a-time-lock">A Time Lock&nbsp;</h3><p>A UTXO time lock is a feature of the Bitcoin blockchain that ensures certain coins can't be used until a specific time or block height is reached. Since Bitcoin doesn't have smart contract functionality, developers use UTXO scripts to create these time locks. To set up a time lock on a UTXO, users need to utilize Bitcoin's script language. Bitcoin scripts define the conditions under which a transaction output can be spent. In the case of a time lock, the script includes specific opcodes (operations) that enforce the time-based restriction.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/1920x1080-9.jpg" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1920" height="804" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/05/1920x1080-9.jpg 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/05/1920x1080-9.jpg 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2024/05/1920x1080-9.jpg 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/1920x1080-9.jpg 1920w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Using time locks, Babylon can maintain a secure and trustless staking environment, giving users confidence that their staked assets remain controlled until the time lock conditions are met. This approach not only secures the funds but also enhances the overall integrity of the staking process.</p><h3 id="eots-signature">EOTS Signature</h3><p>An EOTS (Extractable One-Time Signature) is a cryptographic feature used by Babylon to enhance the security and integrity of its staking process. EOTS signatures are built using Schnorr signatures, which prevent finality providers from double-signing. In the context of Babylon, an EOTS signature ensures that if a finality provider attempts to sign two conflicting blocks, their secret key is revealed. This exposed secret key can then be used to penalize the malicious actor by triggering a slashing mechanism.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/1920x1080-36.jpg" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1920" height="804" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/05/1920x1080-36.jpg 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/05/1920x1080-36.jpg 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2024/05/1920x1080-36.jpg 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/1920x1080-36.jpg 1920w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p><br>Babylon employs EOTS signatures to ensure that Finality Providers validate blocks correctly and honestly. When a user like Alice stakes her Bitcoin, she relies on a Finality Provider to validate blocks using her staked BTC as collateral. If the Finality Provider behaves maliciously, for example, by signing the same block twice, the EOTS signature mechanism kicks in. Observers can detect the double-signing, reveal the provider’s EOTS secret key, and use this information to initiate a slashing transaction.</p><p><strong>Here’s how the EOTS signature is involved in the staking process:</strong></p><ol><li>Generating an EOTS Key Pair: The Finality Provider creates a pair of keys: a secret nonce and a public nonce.</li><li>Public Declaration: The Finality Provider announces in advance that for chain-X at block height-1000, this public nonce will be used to verify her vote. This ensures that only votes signed with this specific nonce will be accepted.</li><li>Signing the Block: After verifying block-1000 and being satisfied with it, the Finality Provider uses the secret nonce and her EOTS secret key to sign the block. She then publishes this signature as her vote.</li><li>Verification: The other participants can verify the vote using the finality provider’s EOTS public key and the pre-declared public nonce.</li></ol><p>Using EOTS signatures, Babylon adds an extra layer of security to its staking process. This mechanism guarantees that any attempt by a finality provider to act dishonestly is met with immediate consequences, such as slashing the staked BTC. This approach protects Alice's funds and maintains the integrity and trustworthiness of the entire Babylon staking system.</p><p>Let's imagine that Alice decides to stake her coins. What steps should she take?</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/1920x1080-37--1-.jpg" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="782" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/05/1920x1080-37--1-.jpg 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/05/1920x1080-37--1-.jpg 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2024/05/1920x1080-37--1-.jpg 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/1920x1080-37--1-.jpg 2000w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><h3 id="creating-a-staking-transaction">Creating a Staking Transaction&nbsp;</h3><p>When signing the transaction, Alice makes four essential steps:</p><ol><li>Creates a time lock for her BTC for a specified time range.</li><li>Chooses a Finality Provider to validate blocks and use Alice's BTC as security collateral.</li><li>Pre-signs a slashing transaction: Alice approves the transaction to be slashed if the finality provider she chooses acts maliciously. The finality provider's secret key is the only thing needed to broadcast this transaction. Bitcoins are slashed by sending them to a Bitcoin burn address like 0000…0000.</li><li>Links a Cosmos-based wallet for receiving rewards.</li></ol><h3 id="block-validation">Block Validation</h3><p>After staking BTC, the Finality Provider starts validating blocks to secure the PoS systems using the BTC delegated by Alice. There are two main scenarios for the finality provider:</p><ol><li>Acts Correctly—If the Finality Provider acts correctly and validates blocks without double-signing or being offline, the provider receives rewards for validating blocks, which Alice can claim. The Finality Provider can charge a fee for its validation services.</li><li>Acts Maliciously – If the Finality Provider acts maliciously, it can lead to a slashing transaction. Here’s how it can happen:<ol><li>For example, the Finality Provider acts maliciously by signing one block twice.</li><li>Whoever sees both votes can decrypt the provider’s EOTS secret key.</li><li>A special covenant committee signs the pre-signed slashing transaction created by the staker using the finality provider’s EOTS secret key.</li><li>The slashing transaction is broadcast to the network, and a portion of BTC is sent to a burn address like 0000…0000.</li><li>The remaining portion is returned to Alice.</li></ol></li></ol><p>Because of Babylon's approach's beauty, BTC is always held in Alice's account. If slashing occurs, her Bitcoin can only be withdrawn or sent to a burn address. The EOTS secret key is required to slash Alice's transaction, which can only be revealed if the validator acts maliciously. This architectural approach provides confidence that the whole process is secure and trustless, ensuring that Alice maintains control over her assets at all times.&nbsp;</p><p><strong>Alice's most important decision is choosing a provider with enough experience in the validating industry to secure her BTC without the risk of slashing it.</strong></p><h2 id="why-is-babylons-btc-staking-approach-different-from-alternatives">Why is Babylon's BTC staking approach different from alternatives?</h2><p>BTC holders can find different BTC staking solutions on the market. The most popular ones are Bitcoin L2s. If users want to stake their Bitcoins, they typically need to bridge Bitcoin using bridges, mint BTC derivatives on the receiving network, and find a protocol that allows them to stake their coins.</p><p>Most Bitcoin Layer 2 solutions don't use BTC as collateral for supporting PoS chains. Instead, they provide yield to BTC holders through additional emission, liquidity provision, or lending mechanisms.</p><p>Babylon's approach is more secure because it doesn't involve bridging or minting synthetic BTC. The source of yield is always clear, as it comes from supporting PoS networks, which reward validators with their coins.</p><p>We believe in the Bitcoin staking narrative and are committed to helping the Babylon Foundation use idle Bitcoin capital to fortify PoS systems. We will continue sharing content about this. Stay tuned for updates!</p><h2 id="how-to-participate">How to Participate?</h2><p>If you're interested in participating in the launch of Babylon, we recommend two main directions for involvement:</p><ol><li><strong>Testnet Participation:</strong> Engage with the Babylon testnet by staking your SignetBTC directly on Babylon's <a href="https://btcstaking.babylonchain.io/?ref=p2p.org"><u>official website</u></a>.

We can provide tailored validator solutions that will be optimal for you when the mainnet launches.</li></ol><p>The Babylon Testnet-4 has already been launched, and the mainnet launch is anticipated by the end of the first half of the year. This new testnet focuses on the security of staked Bitcoins by testing user interactions with the BTC Signet test network. The Babylon team is actively monitoring updates and feedback from the community to ensure the network's robustness and security before the mainnet launch. </p><h1 id="about-p2p-validator"><strong>About P2P Validator</strong></h1><p><a href="https://p2p.org/?ref=p2p.org">P2P Validator</a>&nbsp;is a world-leading non-custodial staking provider, securing over $7 billion from over 10,000 delegators/nominators across 40+ high-class networks.

This form of staker-SSP relationship is called a delegation. Delegations provide economic security to the protocol, require locking the funds, and are incentivized by reward earnings. A delegator is supposed to do their research on validators and decide who is the best in terms of yield &amp; credibility.</p><p>Conceptually, the restaking process is similar to mere staking but introduces an additional layer of complexity. In addition to choosing an Operator, a delegator must now consider a set of protocols (AVSs).</p><p>We assume a case when a delegator has already settled with Ethereum - they run nodes themselves or stake via Ethereum staking service provider (SSP) or liquid staking protocol (LSP) and has yet to opt in restaking offered by Eigenlayer.</p><p>In Eigenlayer, a delegator (also referred to as a restaker) must choose a Strategy. The Strategy comprises an Operator and the set of AVSs supported by this Operator.</p><p>Operators are obliged to perform duties prescribed by AVS protocols. If they don't, they might be penalized, and the penalty is usually either slashing (burning a fraction of a stake) or jailing (de-registering, banning from operations).</p><div class="kg-card kg-callout-card kg-callout-card-grey"><div class="kg-callout-emoji">💡</div><div class="kg-callout-text">A list of some slashing &amp; jailing conditions that AVSs can have:<br><br>- Misattestation of block/data<br>- Doublesigning<br>- Operational<br>- Downtime<br>- Laziness (imitation of proper work)<br>- Wrong computation output</div></div><p><br>Slashing events may occur due to Operator misbehavior, failure, or protocol flaws, which are sometimes induced by specific market conditions (e.g., high load due to market volatility) and massive technical collapses. Even though slashing is not currently enabled in Eigenlayer, it eventually will be, and it's about the right time to start thinking about it if you didn't before.</p><p>Since a restaking choice is narrowed down to choosing a single Operator (per the same capital), the choice of the Operator is critical, as in case of severe operator-related issues, there is a chance of being penalized on all AVS simultaneously—risks become correlated to some extent. The infrastructure automation, monitoring, and support of AVSs will likely be handled by dedicated DevOps engineers, who may share a common architecture and resources.</p><p>For example, the whole cluster of different AVS nodes may go down because they were hosted on the same cloud provider, which went offline in disaster cases.</p><p><strong>Besides slashing risks, one could also think of Eigenlayer smart contract risks and operational risks.</strong></p><p>All these risks can be loosely classified by fundamental sources:</p><ul><li>Eigenlayer Smart contract risk</li><li>Strategy risk<ul><li>Operator (validator) risk</li><li>Protocol (AVS) risk</li><li>Operational (delegators operations) risk</li></ul></li></ul><p>Let’s look into these categories in the next section.</p><h1 id="map-of-risks"><br>Map of risks</h1><p></p><h2 id="eigenlayer-smart-contract-risks">EigenLayer Smart Contract risks</h2><p>EigenLayer consists of a complex set of smart contracts. Here are the most important ones:</p><ul><li><strong>EigenPod</strong>&nbsp;- verifies ETH Beacon deposits via Beacon chain oracle</li><li><strong>EigenPodManager</strong>&nbsp;- deploys pods, keeps track of pod shares (podOwnerShares)</li><li><strong>DelegationManager</strong>&nbsp;- registers operators</li><li><strong>StrategyManager</strong>&nbsp;- the primary entry- and exit point for funds into and out of EigenLayer</li><li><strong>Slasher</strong>&nbsp;- is attached to StrategyManager but does nothing at the moment</li></ul><p>Although we won't delve into their details in this chapter (how they function is well described in this <a href="https://www.blog.eigenlayer.xyz/ycie/?ref=p2p.org" rel="noreferrer">article</a>), it still merits mentioning mechanics related to slashing and draining risks.</p><p>EigenLayer restakes&nbsp;<strong>shares</strong>, not the underlying assets (ETH, LSTs) directly. Shares only exist in EigenLayer contracts for accounting and are subject to slashing. They are not tokens and are not transferrable. That highlights the possible foundation for developing slashing cancelation mechanisms. In the previous version of Eigenlayer, the slashing of real assets could happen via asset locks during the withdrawal process.</p><p>The most significant risk in EigenLayer in the existing version (and potentially in the following versions) is the <a href="https://docs.eigenlayer.xyz/eigenlayer/security/multisig-governance?ref=p2p.org" rel="noreferrer">upgrade governance</a>. Nine out of 13 community EOAs (P2P.org is one of the signers) can ruin the system if they coordinate or get hacked. Any malware code can be pushed to the mainnet smart contracts and drain the funds through them.</p><p>We will continue tracking the development and determine if additional jeopardizing features appear with new version releases.</p><h2 id="operators-risks">Operators risks</h2><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/image-9.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="885" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/05/image-9.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/05/image-9.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2024/05/image-9.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/image-9.png 2000w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><h3 id="hardware">Hardware</h3><p>Under hardware, we understand the physical properties of infrastructure—location, CPU, bandwidth, power stability, etc. Operators can use various cloud providers and configure nodes that don't fully meet the requirements or face capacity problems over time. It won’t be clear until the protocol issues a penalty, and then it might be too late for a delegator as they lose funds.</p><p>Hardware issues usually lead to higher downtime risks (meaning losing rewards), but sometimes also to slashing.</p><blockquote>As an abstract example, bad connectivity may lead to delays in the perceived state of the network; therefore, a node will attest to wrong data that does not fit the consensus.</blockquote><h3 id="software">Software</h3><p>Software may include nodes’ clients, various plugins, and automatization and management solutions deployed by an Operator. Software problems can come from AVS developers and an Operator; sometimes, the node client might come from external developers, and an Operator may choose to use it. Bad, unaudited code and the absence of timely client updates may cause unexpected operational behavior and lead to downtime and slashing.</p><h3 id="hardware-software-setup">Hardware + Software = Setup</h3><p>Technical issues related to hardware and software are not perfectly independent. Problems with one may reveal issues with another.</p><blockquote>Consider an Operator who runs two nodes. The second one is a backup node in case the first one goes down. It is managed automatically. Imagine if the system wrongly decides that there’s a need to turn on the secondary node while the main one operates, maybe because of losing the connection to the primary node or for other reasons. This will then lead to double signing and, hence, slashing.</blockquote><p>In this example, a minor hardware (connectivity) problem highlighted suboptimal software configuration, which resulted in a catastrophe. Thus, it is also reasonable to evaluate hardware and software as a whole system from the design perspective.</p><h3 id="security-breaches">Security breaches</h3><p>Poor security procedures, such as weak passwords, access management, and key management, put node operations at risk. This won’t necessarily lead to the total loss of the delegation funds unless the delegation is made in a custodial way. Still, it may expose a protocol to dishonesty/griefing attack vectors, resulting in slashing.</p><h3 id="bad-actors-dishonesty">Bad actors &amp; dishonesty</h3><p>Generally, dishonesty is driven by two major factors: profit extraction and griefing. Dishonesty is intentional. For this to happen, there should be a condition satisfied:&nbsp;</p><blockquote><em>Value from the attack &gt; Cost of the attack</em></blockquote><p>The cost of the attack can be decomposed into a) financial cost and b) reputation cost.</p><p>Reputation cost is hard to denote in exact numbers but easy to grasp. If an Operator is caught doing dishonest actions, eventually, they will lose credibility and, consequently, delegations and future earnings. AVS operations do not limit the reputation damage and will spread across all Operator businesses. One can roughly say that reputation cost is the net present value of all future profits that an Operator can earn. The higher the TVL (as a proxy of profit), the higher the chance that the Operator will be honest. It merits mentioning that it is not essential that Operators are the only participants in the attack. They can be just members of the attack group and, in the end, bribed (or even hacked) by another party.</p><p>Financial costs will vary across AVSs depending on the protocol design. An abstract example would be network congestion or spamming to disable other Operators to take over a protocol for a short period. This may include fees, infrastructure, bribes to other Operators, etc. To determine the cost, one should inspect all possible attack vectors on AVSs, which is sometimes difficult.</p><p>The value from the attack will also depend on the AVS type and ecosystem around it — value locked, trading activity, etc.</p><h2 id="protocol-risks">Protocol risks</h2><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/image-10.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="885" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/05/image-10.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/05/image-10.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2024/05/image-10.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/image-10.png 2000w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><h3 id="protocol-logic">Protocol logic</h3><p>Protocol logic resembles the set of rules, policies, and processes that govern the operations and, in particular, ensure that Operators are properly incentivized to perform duties well. Rules include consensus, slashing conditions, reward schemes, etc. Improper protocol logic design may cause unintended violations of slashing conditions.</p><blockquote>Imagine an oracle that delivers an aggregated exchange rate for some asset pair. Let it be a median price. Oracles gather data from external providers like Coingecko or CMC, each has their own version of truth. <br><br>Let this oracle protocol pursue accuracy of the data, it should be gathered timely. So if some Operator posts the price that diverges from the resulting median too much, then they get slashed. For example, this might happen when an operator is lagging and delivers an “old price”, which is inaccurate, or the Operator might want to influence the result value to attack DeFi protocols. These are Operator side issues that should be disincentivized. <br><br>But what if there’s a problem with the external source? The Operator performs their duties well but gets slashed anyway because their truth source differs from others. This is exactly the case of bad protocol rules’ design. No bad intention, no bad performance, still slashed.</blockquote><p>The example above may generally be applied to occasions when slashing cannot be organized purely based on on-chain data. However, such slashing conditions can be potentially mediated through $EIGEN token staking. Learn more in <a href="https://p2p.org/economy/how-eigen-works/">our blog post</a>. </p><h3 id="software-vulnerabilities">Software vulnerabilities</h3><p>There is a chance of AVS having code flaws, which may then expose it to security vulnerabilities and operations breaks. The consequences can vary depending on the attack goal, making operators attest to malicious state transition (i.e., enabling double spending), Oracle price misreporting, etc.</p><h3 id="infrastructure-landscape">Infrastructure Landscape</h3><p>Even if everything is good with Operators and AVS, the infrastructure landscape itself can still present slashing risks. For instance, imagine something like the supermajority of Geth clients in Ethereum*. This particular case is a protocol-level risk, but it comes from the existing infrastructure landscape and sometimes can be managed by an Operator.</p><div class="kg-card kg-callout-card kg-callout-card-blue"><div class="kg-callout-emoji">❗</div><div class="kg-callout-text">*For a bigger picture, learn more about Ethereum supermajority risk here:&nbsp;<a href="https://supermajority.info/?ref=p2p.org">https://supermajority.info</a></div></div><h3 id="centralization-led-risks"><br>Centralization-led Risks</h3><p>Depending on the protocol design, sometimes large stake centralization poses risks for the whole network. If operators possessing large amounts of stake go offline or experience bugs, they can affect the whole network and cause mass slashing events. The probability of such a risk is higher when some Operator has a critical amount of delegations requiring just this Operator to fail to initiate the issue.</p><h3 id="staking-derivatives-contagion">Staking Derivatives Contagion</h3><p>LRTs appeared to be an important market player and have attracted large amounts of ETH since the launch of Eigenlayer. Some AVSs softly deal with them to ensure the initial amounts of security delivered. At the same time, the limit on LST restaking has been removed recently; therefore, an additional inflow of LST restaking can be expected.</p><p>Therefore, there can be situations when liquid restaking and staking protocols provide most of the AVS stake.</p><p>In normal market conditions, it doesn't pose any significant risk, but in the case of LRT and LST depegging, the security of AVS might evaporate, exposing it to attacks and instability.</p><h2 id="operational-risks">Operational Risks</h2><h3 id="reward-management-risks">Reward Management risks</h3><p>Security provisions are supposed to be rewarded, and restaking is no exception. There will be a large variety of AVSs; some may pay in the native tokens, some may pay out in tokens of integrated protocols (i.e., roll-ups), and tokens can even be issued in the non-Ethereum ecosystem (i.e., in Ethos). Once a restaker is rewarded, they must decide what to do with rewards - sell or stake again, if AVS accepts this token for staking, or swap to ETH and (re)stake ETH (or LST). Additional actions can be taken to accomplish that, such as reward withdrawal, bridging, swapping, etc. Apparently, restaking on multiple (imagine 10+ or even 20+) AVS will result in a resource-consuming reward management process.</p><p><strong>From a practical perspective, restakers can encounter the following:</strong></p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/image-11.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1430" height="972" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/05/image-11.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/05/image-11.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/image-11.png 1430w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p><br>In the most basic cases, rewards are paid in ETH and occur at predefined Ethereum addresses. There is no need to make any withdrawals or trade tokens. It's almost the same as Ethereum staking itself.</p><p>In a complicated dual staking case, rewards are paid in the AVS token on the external blockchain. AVS has a dual staking model, and rewards should be claimed. Then, they might be compounded or sold, bridged, and dispersed across different trading venues.</p><p>There can be so many actions and various data to track that <strong>the number of points of failure and reporting nuances is pretty high</strong>. Compared to mere ETH staking, restaking requires additional time and resources in rewards management; otherwise, stakers may <strong>miss rewards, not meet tax liabilities, and fail to realize the yield.</strong></p><p>Regarding reward management procedures, restakers should consider market conditions for reward tokens. In particular, it is important to track the available liquidity on trading venues and choose an optimal execution strategy to preserve yield.</p><h3 id="additional-unbonding-period">Additional unbonding period</h3><p>Eigenlayer restaking increases the duration of ETH withdrawals as there’s the time of undbonding from AVSs. Therefore, additional opportunity costs can arise due to the inability to move ETH.</p><blockquote>Currently, Eigenlayer unbonding period equals 7 days, but the period can change in the future.</blockquote><h3 id="legal-risks">Legal risks</h3><p>A delegator should check whether the AVS and owning the AVS token or even restaking itself doesn’t violate legislation of the country of their residence.</p><p></p><h1 id="risk-mitigation">Risk mitigation</h1><h3 id="protocol-risks-the-devil-is-not-so-terrible-as-he-is-painted"><br>Protocol risks: The&nbsp;devil is not so terrible&nbsp;as he is painted.</h3><p>Mass slashing events caused by improper protocol functioning theoretically do not harm a restaker. Eigenlayer has a special committee that is expected to revert the consequences. Also, the protocols are examined and audited for such possibilities during the onboarding procedures. Therefore, without regulatory complications, a protocol risk is expected to be minimized to reward handling.</p><p>Nevertheless, it’s better to be aware of all kinds of scenarios, even if they can be managed post-factum. The odds are small, but can something go wrong? Keep that in mind while constructing a portfolio and checking for risks we outlined previously.</p><h3 id="choose-a-credible-operator">Choose a credible Operator</h3><p>To minimize Operator risk (which seems to be the largest source of risks so far), delegating to Operators with a solid track record and large TVL, public recognition, or personal assurance is important. Before choosing between different Operators, <strong>it is worth building a checklist</strong> highlighting TVL in other networks, acknowledgment from Eigenlayer and AVSs’ foundations, availability of SOC certificates, and previous cases of dishonest &amp; unprofessional behavior that led to the loss of funds.</p><h3 id="plan-in-advance-how-the-reward-monitoring-and-reporting-will-work">Plan in advance how the reward monitoring and reporting will work</h3><p>As we saw above, the variety of yield extraction paths is huge, so a delegator should carefully examine it and construct business/monitoring/reporting processes themselves or outsource it to a specialized third party. Doing it properly will help maximize yield and avoid unnecessary tax and legal pressure. Data services become crucial in this regard.</p><h3 id="role-of-data-services">Role of data services</h3><p>Besides helping operational functions, data services can be applied to operator and protocol risk evaluation. The qualitative approach determines the surface of possible slashing risks but cannot tell the probabilities of outcomes.</p><p>Practically, almost always, there will be no available data or method to predict slashing risks with verifiable accuracy. Most slashing events have an extremely low probability, making it almost impossible to figure out the exact exposure. Historically, there have been few slashing events in matured networks, all having diverse origins.</p><p>Nevertheless, we still want to have something that might indicate the issue.</p><p>Generally, we expect gathering data about AVS operators’ performance to be possible. It can still be used to rank Operators and spot signs of infrastructure disturbances, which then can be used as a proxy for downtimes &amp; slashing risks. For example, if an Operator frequently (and recently) experiences spikes in attestation miss rates in some abstract protocol, they may face harsher problems in the future unless the problem is fixed. These algorithms and models based on performance data are yet to be developed, and their sensitivity must be fine-tuned.</p><p><strong>About Lambda</strong><br>Historically,&nbsp;<a href="http://p2p.org/?ref=p2p.org">P2P.org</a>&nbsp;extensively uses data services for internal needs (i.e., business analysis &amp; planning) and external reporting (clients &amp; research).

BTC, Staking What is Bitcoin Staking?

<h2 id="introducing-babylon">Introducing Babylon</h2><p></p><h3 id="1-the-problem">1. The Problem</h3><p>Bitcoin is the most prominent and valuable cryptocurrency in the world. However, it lacks mechanisms for holders to earn passive income, similar to PoS networks such as Ethereum, leading to millions of idle Bitcoins. The evolving blockchain landscape, especially Proof-of-Stake chains, demands consistent security and liquidity contributions, a role Bitcoin has yet to play significantly.</p><p>Current yield-generating solutions for Bitcoin involve moving assets to centralized platforms, which must be wrapped or stored in custodial wallets. This introduces risks such as hacks and regulatory issues, undermining the blockchain's decentralization and security principles.</p><p>Babylon addresses these issues by offering a decentralized alternative that not only opens up new opportunities for Bitcoin holders to generate yields but also enhances the security and functionality of the broader blockchain infrastructure.</p><h3 id="2-babylons-solution"><br>2. Babylon's Solution</h3><p>Babylon is a PoS protocol designed to enable Bitcoin holders to stake their BTC in a secure and non-custodial manner, allowing them to earn rewards in tokens of chains they support.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://lh7-us.googleusercontent.com/sVlmVDQFTBG3pHPkTQz0KzC-2lAP3woc2_MCJcFTUaXbYkd4NA1lwfmsmtP7_HfjUtHWytuiFJ_o7HsayVUEUWylqoVyzMX4oh1GTI3O3KpnJf-LjY50D2icGP-Sk_BkHn0nYHLnZNKbbKrJvLFDQ1M" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1600" height="900"></figure><p></p><p><strong>The protocol includes two protocols:</strong></p><ul><li><strong>Bitcoin timestamping: </strong>This protocol sends succinct and verifiable timestamps of any data (such as PoS blockchains) to Bitcoin</li><li><strong>Bitcoin staking: </strong>This protocol allows Bitcoin, the asset, to provide economic security to any decentralized systems through trustless (and self-custodian) staking.</li></ul><p>At its core, Babylon allows Bitcoin users to directly stake their BTC, supporting Proof-of-Stake chains while simultaneously earning yields in tokens of chains they support. This capability transforms idle Bitcoin into active, yield-generating assets without requiring holders to relinquish control or security.</p><p><strong>The key features of Babylon include:</strong></p><ol><li><strong>Yield Generation:</strong> Users can earn rewards by staking their BTC directly on the platform.</li><li><strong>Fast Unbonding: </strong>A quick unbonding process allows users to withdraw their staked Bitcoin promptly.</li><li><strong>Non-Custodial Staking: </strong>Users maintain complete control over their BTC without transferring them to a third party.</li><li><strong>EOTS Signature for Security:</strong> This ensures security by ensuring the staked Bitcoin is locked and accounted for.</li><li><strong>Cross-Chain Interoperability: </strong>Facilitates interactions between different blockchain networks, enhancing the utility and reach of staked assets.</li><li><strong>Slashing Mechanism:</strong> Implements measures to penalize bad actors, thus safeguarding the network's integrity and user assets.</li></ol><p>Babylon presents an innovative and secure solution to the problems faced by Bitcoin holders and the broader blockchain ecosystem.&nbsp;</p><h3 id="3-how-does-it-generally-work">3. How does it generally work</h3><p>A user with BTC can secure the Babylon chain or other Cosmos PoS chains while receiving yields in their tokens. To do this, the user must lock their BTC coins on Bitcoin. Because Bitcoin doesn't support smart contracts, the user should initiate the staking process using a <a href="https://academy.binance.com/en/glossary/unspent-transaction-output-utxo?ref=p2p.org"><u>UTXO transaction</u></a> that creates a time lock for the BTC coins. This UTXO transaction has three main outputs: the time lock can expire, allowing withdrawal; the user can unbond their transaction before expiration; the transaction can be slashed if a validator acts maliciously.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://lh7-us.googleusercontent.com/TlrRoo92Dv84SpZHXzPnf9Fld9RkMzwLc0MVuWAzbK1S5BfGbTDuaUNClgNPnCZcBGLuoDp57M9SR37k4b5hluaJY_52VYLSx0_d8sNUS1RivRQ65CI1o3t5gSg0GZqh4887RHI9GXK1O7YdkFNgwlg" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1600" height="900"></figure><p>After signing the transaction, the user delegates their BTC tokens to a finality provider, who can validate the transaction. This allows the user to receive yield if the provider secures blocks correctly. However, if the finality provider acts maliciously, it can be slashed.</p><p>The cornerstone of the entire model is the pre-signed slashing transaction and EOTS keys. When staking, the user pre-signs a slashing transaction that can be broadcast to the network if the finality provider acts maliciously. If the provider double-signs a block, its EOTS keys are revealed, and the covenant committee can sign the pre-approved transaction using the finality provider’s private key.</p><ol><li><strong>Detection of malicious activity</strong>: Finality providers detect malicious activity, such as another finality provider signing a block twice.</li><li><strong>Exposure of private key:</strong> If malicious activity is detected, the malicious finality provider’s private key is leaked.</li><li><strong>Notification and slashing:</strong> The finality providers notify the covenant committee, which signs the pre-signed slashing transaction using the exposed private key and broadcasts it to the network.</li><li><strong>Slashing transaction:</strong> A predetermined amount of Bitcoins is sent to a burn address as a penalty for the malicious activity.</li></ol><p>The process results in securing PoS chains and receiving yields for BTC tokens, which depend on the chains the user secures. Initially, the Babylon chain will start on the mainnet by ensuring only the Babylon chain itself. Still, stakers can secure other Cosmos chains and receive yields in their tokens.</p><h3 id="4-investors-and-market-confidence">4. Investors and Market Confidence</h3><p>Babylon has successfully secured substantial funding across several rounds, showcasing strong market trust and investor interest in its innovative approach to Bitcoin staking.</p><p><strong>Seed Round: </strong>Babylon initiated its funding journey by raising $8.8 million in a seed round led by IDG and Breyer Capital, emphasizing early support from established investors in transformative technologies.</p><p><strong>Series A Funding: </strong>The momentum continued with a Series A round that raised $16 million. This round was co-led by Polychain Capital and Hack VC and saw additional participation from Framework Ventures, Polygon Ventures, Castle Island Ventures, OKX Ventures, Finality Capital, Breyer Capital, Symbolic Capital, and IOSG Ventures.

How to Participate</h3><p>If you're interested in participating in the launch of Babylon, we recommend two main directions for involvement:</p><ol><li><strong>Testnet Participation:</strong> Engage with the Babylon testnet by staking your SignetBTC directly on Babylon’s <a href="https://btcstaking.babylonchain.io/?ref=p2p.org"><u>official website</u></a>. This allows you to familiarize yourself with the platform’s features and functionalities without risking real assets.</li><li><strong>Support for Large Bitcoin Holders: </strong>If you hold a significant amount of Bitcoin, don't hesitate to contact our team. We can provide tailored validator solutions that will be optimal for you when the mainnet launches.<br></li></ol><p>The Babylon is currently in the testnet phase, with the mainnet launch anticipated by the end of the first half of the year. The new testnet (bbn-test-4) will focus on the security of staked Bitcoins by testing user interactions with the BTC Signet test network. The Babylon team plans to launch this new testnet towards the end of May 2024. The team is closely monitoring updates and feedback from the community to ensure the robustness and security of the network before the mainnet launch. </p><p></p><h1 id="about-p2p-validator"><strong>About P2P Validator</strong></h1><p><a href="https://p2p.org/?ref=p2p.org">P2P Validator</a>&nbsp;is a world-leading non-custodial staking provider, securing over $7 billion from over 10,000 delegators/nominators across 40+ high-class networks.</p><p>Do not hesitate to ask questions in our&nbsp;<a href="https://t.me/P2Pstaking?ref=p2p.org">Telegram</a>&nbsp;chat or contact our team directly on X or LinkedIn.

$EIGEN token in simple words

<p>On April 29, EigenLayer introduced the $EIGEN, which has a unique token design and utility. We dived deeper to explain intersubjective faults, how tokens may be forkable, and the nature of $bEIGEN.</p><h1 id="what-is-eigen">What is $EIGEN?</h1><p>Before discussing $EIGEN and its design, it's essential to understand some concepts introduced by EigenLayer.</p><p>The main idea behind any decentralized network or service is trustlessness. This means you don't need a central supervisor. Instead, the network's nodes work together to verify each other's work. If a node breaks the network rules, it gets punished through a process called slashing. For example, if an Ethereum validator creates two different blocks simultaneously, it's considered an attempt to split the network into two forks, and the validator is punished by slashing.</p><p>Decentralized services rely on the ability to verify if nodes violate network rules and punish bad behavior. However, not all types of bad behavior are easy to verify and punish. EigenLayer divides bad behavior (faults) into two types:</p><ol><li><strong>Objective Faults</strong>: These are behaviors that can be verified within a blockchain using mathematical or cryptographic methods.</li><li><strong>Intersubjective Faults</strong>: These are behaviors that cannot be objectively identified on-chain, but any reasonable observer would agree that a fault occurred and deserves a penalty.</li></ol><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://lh7-us.googleusercontent.com/iG7oqosSleJ4W2xN_FNg4d-B6vFNCbTL1HtpmImB2uqhCCDamkgrXcLaRJdewETTpfBrL9zYCuOzOMgKHukhO7GZ6H5w85LMZ7VGyxdu2Vic3exRkJhpFrAViInyLXiTRT0eA1QsPPOb7nadNw0uZwc" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1600" height="840"></figure><p>ETH restaking provides a way to penalize objective faults, extending Ethereum's security to other protocols. The new $EIGEN token introduces a mechanism specifically designed to address intersubjective faults.</p><p>$EIGEN works like staking, where slashing is imposed through mechanisms similar to formalized social disputes because these slashing conditions cannot be tracked on-chain. Another analogy is governance: voting for or against proposals to charge malicious actors. You can read more about objective and intersubjective faults in the white paper.</p><p>The purposes of $EIGEN are:</p><ol><li>To cover off-chain slashing conditions. Examples include transaction ordering, databases, prediction markets, storage services, oracles, artificial intelligence, and more.</li><li>To enable protocols to implement some form of slashing without designing on-chain slashing. This can be used in new launches before ETH restaking is enabled.</li></ol><figure class="kg-card kg-embed-card"><blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">What are some usecases of AVSs with intersubjective slashing <a href="https://twitter.com/eigenlayer?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref=p2p.org">@eigenlayer</a><br>---------------<br>1) EigenDA - to slash for data withholding (not onchain verifiable)<br><br>2) Ordering service - to slash for censorship (not onchain verifiable)<br><br>3) Validity on arbitrary VM - to slash for… <a href="https://t.co/uvhGHdDWwJ?ref=p2p.org">https://t.co/uvhGHdDWwJ</a></p>— Sreeram Kannan (@sreeramkannan) <a href="https://twitter.com/sreeramkannan/status/1788093177288601851?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref=p2p.org">May 8, 2024</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script></figure><h1 id="token-fork%E2%80%A6-how-will-it-work">Token fork… how will it work?</h1><p>$EIGEN is represented in two forms: bEIGEN and EIGEN, both of which are ERC-20 tokens that can be interchanged.</p><ul><li><strong>bEIGEN</strong>: This is a bonded (staked) token used for staking. It can be withdrawn by converting it back into EIGEN. bEIGEN is subject to forking, which is a slashing mechanism.</li><li><strong>EIGEN</strong>: This is a transferable token used for non-staking purposes, such as DeFi. It can be bonded by converting it into bEIGEN.</li></ul><p>The purpose of having two representations is to simplify the process and avoid complications related to forking. If there were only one token, every forking event would require DeFi platforms and CEXes to register a new fork and supply liquidity, which is inconvenient.</p><p>Now, let’s imagine that some AVS adopted $EIGEN to secure intersubjective slashing conditions. This AVS defines the mechanism for how the intersubjective slashing will work, i.e., conditions, dispute periods, voting design, etc. Here’s a step-by-step explanation of the forking process when an operator commits an intersubjective fault:</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/image-4.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1414" height="646" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/05/image-4.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/05/image-4.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/image-4.png 1414w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><ol><li><strong>Social Deliberation</strong>:<ul><li>A fault alert is raised by a bEIGEN staker.</li><li>Consensus participants engage in deliberation to discuss the issue.</li><li>Honest participants converge on an opinion and agree on who will raise the challenge.</li></ul></li><li><strong>Challenge</strong>:<ul><li>Raising a challenge involves launching a new version of bEIGEN (an ERC-20 contract fork), a new challenge contract, and a new fork-distributor contract.</li><li>These contracts specify how malicious operators are penalized and how challengers are rewarded.</li><li>A challenger must submit a significant number of bEIGEN tokens as a bond, which will be returned if the challenge is successful.</li><li>The new bEIGEN accounts for the operators' malicious actions, slashes them, and rewards the challengers.</li></ul></li><li><strong>Configuring the EIGEN Contract</strong>:<ul><li>If the challenge is successful, EIGEN should be tied to the new fork of bEIGEN through an upgrade transaction.</li></ul></li></ol><h1 id="eigen-allocation-details">$EIGEN allocation details</h1><p>You can read all details about token allocation and check your eligibility on the official site&nbsp;<a href="https://eigenfoundation.org/?ref=p2p.org">https://eigenfoundation.org/</a>&nbsp;Here is a summary</p><p>The total supply of EIGEN at launch is 1,673,646,668.28466 tokens.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/image-6.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1418" height="806" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/05/image-6.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/05/image-6.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/05/image-6.png 1418w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Notable that In the initial phase, the $EIGEN will be non-transferable and non-forkable.

A few considerations to take into account: </p><ol><li>It's important that the operator plans to onboard more AVS using $EIGEN, which is coming according to EigenLayer announcements. </li><li>you can delegate all your staked assets only to one operator, including restated natively ETH, LST, and $EIGEN.

restaking, EigenLayer Know Your AVS!

<h3 id="restaking-with-p2porg-know-your-avs"><br>Restaking with P2P.org: Know Your AVS</h3><p></p><p>The latest development in the EigenLayer protocol has culminated with the launch of the EigenLayer Stage 2 mainnet. This phase marks the introduction of Operators, who assume responsibility for performing validation tasks for Actively Validated Services (AVS) built on the EigenLayer protocol. This pivotal step is a significant protocol evolution as Operators can now register to the network and begin validating for the AVSs. Restakers can delegate their stake to operators and start implementing the primary mission of EigenLayer.</p><p>EigenLayer paves the way for a thriving ecosystem of AVSs on the mainnet. <strong>To make your life easier, we prepared a short introduction to AVSs that went live recently. </strong>We support you in your restaking journey—that's what we do. Let's explore together.</p><h2 id="brevis-co-chain"><strong>Brevis Co-Chain</strong><br></h2><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/04/brevis.jpg" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="1125" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/04/brevis.jpg 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/04/brevis.jpg 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2024/04/brevis.jpg 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/04/brevis.jpg 2000w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p><br>Smart contracts require quite a lot of computational resources to operate on-chain for data-driven or complex features. To access such features, users pay huge amounts of fees to Ethereum validators to execute the code of the smart contract.</p><p>To resolve that, <strong>Brevis migrates the heavy computation off-chain and allows smart contracts to access full historical on-chain data and run customizable computations in a trust-free manner using Zero-Knowledge Proofs.</strong> This has opened endless possibilities for data-driven features: DEXes are able to build<a href="https://twitter.com/UniswapFND/status/1719760883965149501?ref=p2p.org"> <u>VIP loyalty programs</u></a> based on a user's past trading volume; active liquidity management protocols can trigger predefined user intents with ZK-verified on-chain states and events; AMMs can have strong LVR protection and more robust farming reward distribution programs; protocols can utilize<a href="https://twitter.com/TrustaLabs/status/1768114687089295770?ref=p2p.org"> <u>multi-dimensional ZK-reputation</u></a> metrics to segment users and provide a personalized UX based on an address's on-chain footprint.</p><p>Alongside the "pure-ZK" model, the new Brevis coChain AVS "optimistically" generates result proposals for coprocessing requests, which are subject to challenge by Zero-Knowledge fraud proofs. This will drastically reduce costs in cases where proposals are not challenged, while the baseline security is ensured by the overarching coChain Slashing Window, which accepts ZKPs to rectify invalid results.</p><p><strong>More details</strong>: <a href="https://blog.brevis.network/2024/01/18/introducing-brevis-cochain-the-fusion-of-crypto-economics-and-zk-proof-in-a-zk-coprocessor/&nbsp;?ref=p2p.org" rel="noreferrer">Blog</a><br><strong>Social Media: </strong><a href="https://twitter.com/brevis_zk?ref=p2p.org" rel="noreferrer">Twitter</a></p><p></p><h2 id="altlayer">AltLayer</h2><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/04/alt-layer.jpg" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="1125" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/04/alt-layer.jpg 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/04/alt-layer.jpg 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2024/04/alt-layer.jpg 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/04/alt-layer.jpg 2000w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p><br><strong>AltLayer offers products for rollups based on security from restaking (called restaked rollups)</strong>.

It is used to verify rollup states—currently, this is done poorly or even in a centralized manner. It enhances the rollup's security properties.</p><p><strong>MACH</strong>—speeds up the finality of the rollups via restaked security. It acts as a “pre-Ethereum” rollup state attestation and finalization layer, which is partially secured by Ethereum (restaked ETH). This is particularly needed for faster interoperability since assets cannot be transferred to another blockchain until the state is finalized.&nbsp;</p><p><strong>SQUAD</strong>—is decentralized sequencing (txs ordering or block building) for rollups.

Staking Introducing Staking-as-a-Business, SaaB

<p></p><p><strong>Staking-as-a-Business is here to support your core business</strong>.</p><p>Currently, 31 million ETH, over a quarter of its circulating supply, are staked. From March 22, 2023, to March 22, 2024, saw a significant surge, with the volume of staked assets and the number of new depositors increasing, according to CryptoQuant. This underscores a robust and steady uptick in new entrants actively contributing to the Ethereum network's security. Furthermore, as the <strong>combined market capitalization of all Proof of Stake blockchains approaches $600 billion, P2P.org has emerged as a key player, offering a secure and non-custodial gateway into the staking economy</strong>. Already, we've attracted over 90,000 delegators and locked in over $7+ billion (April 14) in value, making us one of the <a href="https://www.stakingrewards.com/providers/all?ref=p2p.org"><u>largest staking operators by TVL</u></a>, and the momentum shows no signs of slowing down, especially with an ETH ETF just around the corner.</p><p>We believe the future of staking sits with not only delegators but also the companies building in the Web3 &amp; DeFi space, and this is why collaboration and partnerships are the fastest way to growth. In a recent article in Blockworks looking at the growth of CoinBase, they stated that</p><blockquote class="kg-blockquote-alt"><em>"Rewards earned for staking tokens to secure blockchains accounted for<br>11% of Coinbase's revenue in 2023"</em></blockquote><p>As a leading validator, we're in the front seat of this growth with our partners and those who have integrated into our infrastructure over the past year.

EigenLayer, restaking P2P.org's Restaking API via EigenLayer

<p>We're excited to announce a highly anticipated addition to our staking solutions portfolio, <strong>Restaking API for ETH Staking via EigenLayer</strong>. This is the first of its kind within the industry, representing a significant leap forward once again for P2P.org clients. Launching of this new product offers businesses a streamlined and efficient way to harness the full potential of Ethereum restaking.</p> <!--kg-card-begin: html--> <iframe width="800" height="450" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/sw070p0M02o?si=TV8AxVK5OjEeQiro&amp;controls=0" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share" allowfullscreen></iframe> <!--kg-card-end: html--> <h2 id="introducing-eigenlayer-restaking"><strong>Introducing EigenLayer Restaking:</strong></h2><p>Our Restaking API is designed to simplify the integration process, allowing businesses to create Eigenpod addresses and participate in EigenLayer Restaking seamlessly. This is a step towards a more connected and efficient Ethereum ecosystem.</p><p>As announced earlier in the year, P2P.org were one of the first to allow users to use our non-custodial staking dApp which already supports the customization of validator withdrawal addresses, which is the basic requirement for native restaking to an EigenPod. You can learn more about this in our <a href="https://p2p.org/economy/eigen-layer-restaking-with-p2p-org-guide/"><strong><u>Step-by-Step Guide: Eigen Layer Restaking</u></strong></a></p><p>P2P.org were also proud to participate in EigenLayers Restaking Summit in Istanbul during the Devconnect conference.

Here's why you should consider it:</p><ul><li><strong>Airdrop Eligibility:</strong> Clients staking on EigenLayer will likely qualify for future protocol airdrops. By integrating early with our API, users ensure their spot for these potential rewards.</li><li><strong>Market First: </strong>P2P.org is proud to be the first to offer an API integration for restaking on EigenLayer, setting a precedent in the market. As ETH staking becomes more popular with more and more validators, the rewards are reduced, restaking allows you to boost these rewards in the first hald of 2024. (additionally, learn more about our MEV Boost <a href="https://p2p.org/economy/unlock-p2p-orgs-mev-enhancement-feature/"><u>here</u></a>!)</li><li><strong>Future-Ready:</strong> Early integration means you'll be ahead of the curve, reducing future integration time and effort.

<p>Ethereum, the second-largest blockchain platform by market capitalization, is on the brink of a transformative leap with the <strong>eagerly anticipated Dencun upgrade, slated for activation on March 13th</strong>.<br><br>As a hub for a myriad of decentralized applications (dApps) and a hotbed for blockchain innovation, Ethereum has faced its share of challenges, notably in scalability and the burden of high transaction costs.<br><br>This forthcoming upgrade is a watershed moment in Ethereum's evolution towards a rollup-centric future. <strong>By introducing Proto-Danksharding (EIP-4844), Ethereum is setting the stage for unprecedented scalability and efficiency enhancements</strong>, promising to address these critical challenges head-on.<br><br><strong>Quick Highlights: Dencun Upgrade &amp; P2P.org's Role</strong></p><ul><li><strong>Upgrade Date</strong>: Ethereum's Dencun upgrade is set for March 13th, marking another significant leap in Ethereum's scalability.</li><li><strong>Core Features</strong>: Proto-Danksharding (EIP-4844), aimed at drastically cutting transaction costs and enhancing scalability through innovative "blob" data storage.</li><li><strong>Impact on Layer 2</strong>: The upgrade promises more efficient Layer 2 solutions, directly benefiting the Ethereum community.</li><li><strong>P2P.org's Involvement</strong>: Our <a href="https://x.com/p2pvalidator/status/1711641189810876743?s=46&ref=p2p.org">engagement in testnets showcases our commitment to Ethereum's development and ensures readiness for the upgrade.</a> (read more in the paragraphs below!)</li><li><strong>Staking Dynamics:</strong> Finally, we tried to anticipate how the upgrade would impact Staking, LSTs, and what's ahead.<br><br><strong>User Advisory</strong>: No immediate action is needed from P2P.org users; we're set to guide you through this transition smoothly.</li></ul><h2 id="proto-danksharding">Proto-Danksharding</h2><p>At the heart of the Dencun upgrade is <a href="https://www.eip4844.com/?ref=p2p.org">EIP-4844</a>, a groundbreaking proposal promising to dramatically enhance Ethereum's scalability. It's designed to significantly enhance Ethereum's scalability by introducing a new type of data storage called "blobs." These blobs allow for efficient, short-term storage of extensive data sets off the main blockchain while ensuring their processing availability. This mechanism reduces the overall transaction costs and paves the way for more scalable Layer 2 solutions by creating a separate space for batch processing of transactions. <strong>Proto-Danksharding is a critical step towards Ethereum's vision of achieving high transaction throughput, aiming to accommodate over 100,000 transactions per second.</strong><br><br><a href="https://twitter.com/PaulYa5hin?ref=p2p.org">Pavel Yashin</a>, a leading data analyst and researcher at P2P.org, shares his insights on this upgrade's impact on the Ethereum ecosystem.</p><blockquote>"EIP-4844 will create a separate blockspace for L2 batch processing, resulting in a two-dimensional fee market," explains Yashin. "This means Layer 2 solutions will have their own EIP-1559-like market, optimizing the costs of uploading data and potentially leading to a drastic decrease in L2 fees. The implications for the blockspace markets and the staking economy are profound."</blockquote><h3 id="the-impact-on-blockspace-markets">The Impact on Blockspace Markets</h3><p>Currently, L2 smart contracts are among the top consumers of gas on Ethereum, utilizing approximately 12-15% of blockspace primarily for batch uploading. Introducing a separate blockspace for these operations will alleviate this pressure, lowering base fees until new consumers fill the gap.<br></p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card kg-card-hascaption"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/02/GGSzSh9WUAA1jP5.jpeg" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1696" height="892" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/02/GGSzSh9WUAA1jP5.jpeg 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/02/GGSzSh9WUAA1jP5.jpeg 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2024/02/GGSzSh9WUAA1jP5.jpeg 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/02/GGSzSh9WUAA1jP5.jpeg 1696w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"><figcaption>Data from Dune Analytics gathered by Pavel Yashin</figcaption></figure><p>The Dencun upgrade heralds a significant improvement for Layer 2 (L2) solutions, as they will gain independence from the congestion and fee spikes of Layer 1 (L1). Only local congestion within L2s will influence their operation, making Ethereum's blockspace more efficient and user-friendly. </p><blockquote><strong>This independence from L1 congestion ensures that L2 solutions can offer a more consistent and predictable fee structure, significantly enhancing the user experience on the Ethereum network.</strong></blockquote><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card kg-card-hascaption"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/02/GGSzoO2X0AAfNJ-.jpeg" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1694" height="892" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/02/GGSzoO2X0AAfNJ-.jpeg 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/02/GGSzoO2X0AAfNJ-.jpeg 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2024/02/GGSzoO2X0AAfNJ-.jpeg 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/02/GGSzoO2X0AAfNJ-.jpeg 1694w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"><figcaption>"Despite being huge gas consumers, L2s are nowhere near a major source of priority fees: most batch posting transactions occur at the bottom of the block.

"For stakers, the change may pass by mostly unnoticed, affecting only a fraction of APR from priority fees income," Yashin notes. "However, the decrease in base and priority fees could make Ethereum more attractive to a broader user base."

DVT, Staking, Ethereum, SSV.Network How does DVT help mitigate client majority risks?

<p></p><h2 id="intro">Intro</h2><p>The Ethereum community is now focusing on one critical theme: <strong>the risk of a supermajority client</strong>. Without delving too deep, as Dankrad Feist has already brilliantly explained this risk over two years ago in his article <a href="https://dankradfeist.de/ethereum/2022/03/24/run-the-majority-client-at-your-own-peril.html?ref=p2p.org">here</a>, it's crucial to understand the serious threat it poses.<br><br><strong>A bug in an execution client, if it is used by over 66% of the network, could force the community into painful decisions impacting network stability, users' funds, and the ETH token price.</strong><br><br>The community is already showing positive signs, reducing Geth dependency from 84% (source: <a href="clientdiversity.org">clientdiversity.org</a>), which is a step in the right direction. While execution client matters used to be passive, recent bugs with Nethermind and Besu have sparked conversation and concern among investors and professional staking providers.<br></p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card kg-width-wide kg-card-hascaption"><img src="https://lh7-us.googleusercontent.com/rR0teqSDx-du8AvFCtK436fQh88hVYHMtpk9uz78LXdH7G9KbWL1ZfLRKbHf_ohw2TQGWo6YNwdCNRtmdIGAuMZNwD8gx_JmjKYPjH3n6xr2wPpkUVHFyRI_6vaw2sBnA4OP5unuHf7sLHuQf3vlja8" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="368" height="489"><figcaption>ETHEREUM CLIENTS DISTRIBUTION</figcaption></figure><p><br><br><strong>How DVT Helps</strong><br>The demand for change is loud and clear. Large staking service providers, therefore, are reassessing their strategies to reduce their reliance on Geth. But what constitutes a sustainable change to mitigate supermajority risks today?<br><br>Imagine a scenario where providers start replacing Geth with another client, like Nethermind. This could inadvertently create a new supermajority. <strong>The Ethereum goal is a multi-client architecture where no single client software exceeds ⅓ of the total network coverage.</strong></p><p>DVT is crucial here. By staking on SSV.network, for example, your validator is managed by a minimum of four node operators, significantly reducing the risk of a system failure. As long as three out of four operators (or the set threshold for larger clusters) are active, the validator remains online and continues earning rewards. This added fault tolerance benefits client-related bugs and common faults among node operators, such as power failure, connectivity issues, or even hardware or software failure.<br><br>However, this isn't a complete solution. Clusters of node operators belonging to one single entity are not unlikely to be seen, which can undermine the goal of decentralization. This becomes riskier if they use the same EL/CL setup, as a bug in one client could affect the entire cluster.</p><p>A takeaway from this for investors is to pay attention to which node operators are running the cluster, their setup, and how each node operator is correlated to others.</p><div class="kg-card kg-button-card kg-align-center"><a href="https://p2p.org/products/dvt?ref=p2p.org" class="kg-btn kg-btn-accent">The solution: Check our DVT Staking API</a></div><p><br><br><strong>What P2P.org is Doing Now</strong><br>Navigating these complexities can be overwhelming. That's why, at the end of last year, we developed our <strong>DVT Staking API solution, designed for large enterprises to automate staking and lower the risk of a penalty occurring due to client supermajority bugs</strong>.<br><br>This non-custodial solution, powered by DVT (SSV.network), gives instant access to a secure and diversified staking environment. By integrating a smart contract to manage $SSV on behalf of the client, we remove complex manual processes so that users can stake their ETH while having a top-performing cluster managing their validator. </p><p>Initially, creating a cluster with diverse EL/CL clients was challenging. Some node operators struggled with minority client synchronization, forcing a balance between performance and client diversification. Until recently, our network supported two operators running Geth. This has changed with the addition of RockX to our network. Their institutional expertise and focus on minority clients accelerate our path toward decentralization, ensuring no single execution/consensus client dominates our cluster.</p><div class="kg-card kg-button-card kg-align-center"><a href="https://docs.p2p.org/docs/getting-started-ssv?ref=p2p.org" class="kg-btn kg-btn-accent">Check our API Documentation</a></div><p><br><br><br><strong>P2P.org's Future Plans</strong><br>P2P has been actively working on solutions to mitigate risks posed by an execution client supermajority and other systemic risks. But, we are far from being satisfied. While we've made meaningful progress, the issue of preventing future clients from gaining a supermajority remains. Our cluster can be decentralized further, and we're contributing toward achieving a network where no client has more than ⅓ of the nodes.</p><p>Institutions seek more control over their validators, including client selection, location, and MEV relays. We're responding to these needs by developing features starting with CL/EL selection. If you prefer using only minority clients for your validator, we're making that a reality.</p><h2 id="contact-us"><br>Contact Us:</h2><p><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em>Do not hesitate to ask questions in our <a href="https://t.me/P2Pstaking?ref=p2p.org">Telegram chat</a> or </em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em>contact <a href="mailto:[email protected]">Alessandro Maci</a>.</em><br><br><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em>We are always open for communication.</em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em></p><hr><p><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong>Web:</strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong> <a href="https://p2p.org/?ref=p2p.org">https://p2p.org</a></p><p><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong>Twitter:</strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong> <a href="https://twitter.com/p2pvalidator?ref=p2p.org">@p2pvalidator</a></p><p><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong><strong>Telegram:</strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong></strong> <a href="https://t.me/P2Pstaking?ref=p2p.org">https://t.me/P2Pstaking</a></p><p></p><p><br><br></p>
