Babylon, Bitcoin, BTC, Staking How Babylon Achieves Universality on a Scale

<p><strong>Babylon is a Bitcoin Staking Protocol that allows Bitcoin holders to stake their BTC, providing security for different PoS systems. </strong>As a result, BTC holders can gain rewards on their capital in the tokens of PoS systems they support. On the other hand, different blockchains or DA layers that decide&nbsp;to integrate with Babylon can use it to secure their networks with Bitcoin, the world’s most valuable crypto asset.<br><br>To understand it better, please read our previous article on BTC staking with Babylon:</p><figure class="kg-card kg-bookmark-card"><a class="kg-bookmark-container" href="https://p2p.org/economy/what-is-bitcoin-staking/"><div class="kg-bookmark-content"><div class="kg-bookmark-title">What is Bitcoin Staking?</div><div class="kg-bookmark-description">Introducing Babylon 1.

But how does it achieve this?</p><p>Babylon introduces the role of Finality Providers, who receive delegations of BTC from Bitcoin holders. Finality Providers are additional validators that can participate in the block validation process. The largest blockchain validators, including P2P.org, will be Finality Providers in Babylon.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/06/pos-1.jpg" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="1159" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/06/pos-1.jpg 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/06/pos-1.jpg 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2024/06/pos-1.jpg 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/06/pos-1.jpg 2000w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p></p><p>After receiving the BTC delegation, Finality Providers can participate in the block verification process. If they act maliciously, for example, by double signing, the portion of Bitcoins delegated by stakers can be slashed. Slashing can be technically achieved because of the EOTS signature that Finality Providers use to validate blocks. When Finality Providers double sign, their private key is leaked, which allows the broadcast of a pre-approved slashing transaction that was created when the user staked the tokens.<br></p><div class="kg-card kg-callout-card kg-callout-card-grey"><div class="kg-callout-text">Babylon’s design is elegant and flexible. It adds additional finality rounds to blockchains operated by Finality Providers. This means that PoS systems, which have their own consensus mechanisms and validators, can add an extra level of verification supported by a set of Finality Providers who provide BTC as a slashable asset.</div></div><p><br>This set of Finality Providers can improve security and make the blockchain more decentralized. Decentralization is crucial for any blockchain to be secure and sustainable, but not all blockchains boast about it. Additionally, finding and maintaining a stack of validators is a resource-intensive process.</p><p><strong>Babylon acts as a shared security marketplace that brings together Finality Providers, who offer shared security, and PoS systems, which receive it in exchange for rewards.</strong></p><h3 id="cosmos-as-a-first-stop">Cosmos as a First Stop</h3><p>Babylon plans to focus on the Cosmos SDK blockchains and the Babylon PoS chain itself as the first PoS systems. Like other chains built on CometBFT, the Babylon PoS chain will have a set of validators that validate blocks and broadcast them to other nodes. Validators in Cosmos use the native tokens of these chains as security collateral. If they act maliciously, the portion delegated tokens can be slashed.</p><p>However, when integrated with Babylon, Cosmos SDK chains add an additional finality round that provides extra security through Finality Providers. As shown in the diagram, these Finality Providers become an additional step in the block path, creating a more secure block verification process.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/06/a3.jpg" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="1159" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/06/a3.jpg 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/06/a3.jpg 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2024/06/a3.jpg 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/06/a3.jpg 2000w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p></p><p>If Cosmos SDK chains decide to work with Babylon and receive additional security, they must reward Finality Providers to attract them. This creates a marketplace where Finality Providers offer security, and blockchains reward them.<br></p><h3 id="other-ecosystems-are-welcomed">Other Ecosystems Are Welcomed</h3><p>One of the most exciting aspects of Babylon's plan is its focus on PoS systems outside of the Cosmos ecosystem. From Babylon's announcements, we know that Babylon plans to integrate its Bitcoin Staking Protocol to provide shared security to Bitcoin L2s, AltLayer rollups, standalone chains, and more.</p><p>The reality is that the additional round of finality after the protocol has finalized a block can be added to different consensus protocols, not just CometBFT. Babylon's general approach can open the doors to providing security for various blockchain ecosystems and allow Babylon to build a shared security marketplace, where PoS systems from different ecosystems can interact with finality providers and receive security from them.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/06/a2.jpg" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="2000" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/06/a2.jpg 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/06/a2.jpg 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2024/06/a2.jpg 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/06/a2.jpg 2000w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>When speaking about Babylon, we should always keep in mind that Babylon's impact can be much more significant than we think right now. This is achieved through its architecture and the vast amount of BTC collateral that can be used. In the long run, this shared security model can lead to a more secure and resilient blockchain environment. As more PoS systems join the Babylon, the collective security and stability of the entire ecosystem improve. <br></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><br>Engage with the Babylon testnet by staking your SignetBTC directly on Babylon's <a href="https://btcstaking.testnet.babylonchain.io/?ref=p2p.org"><u>official website</u></a>.

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.

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.

Ethereum, Explain Like I'm Five, Staking The Dencun Upgrade: A New Era for Ethereum

<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."

However, as of February 2024, a resurgence in queue congestion has been observed, likely spurred by positive market sentiment and an influx of long-term investments or anticipation of forthcoming updates.</div></div><p>This scenario underscores the importance of making timely staking decisions, especially if the positive outlook on Ethereum's macroeconomic environment persists, potentially leading to queue lengths surpassing those observed post-Shapella.</p><h4 id="impact-on-liquid-staking-tokens-lsts">Impact on Liquid Staking Tokens (LSTs)</h4><p>In the event of heightened demand for staking and the emergence of queues, it's conceivable that interest may partially shift towards Liquid Staking Tokens (LSTs). Although this shift would likely result in a reduced yield on LSTs, their appeal remains intact, suggesting that LSTs could be pivotal in Ethereum's staking ecosystem moving forward.</p><h4 id="looking-ahead">Looking Ahead</h4><p>This adjustment is envisioned as a temporary measure, awaiting a definitive stance from the Ethereum Foundation on key staking parameters, such as the target staking ratio and inflation considerations.

Manta, Staking, Guide Manta Staking Guide

<p>Manta Atlantic is a prominent part of the <a href="https://manta.network/?ref=p2p.org">Manta Network</a>, recognized for being the fastest and most decentralized Zero-Knowledge (ZK) Layer1 on Polkadot.‌‌‌‌This makes it a significant contender for L1s, particularly for those applications requiring high levels of privacy and security.</p><p>This guide outlines the steps to create an account on the Polkadot network and stake your assets in Manta. <strong>If you hold more than 400 K Manta, contact us to learn about special staking offers.</strong></p><h2 id="creating-a-manta-atlantic-account"><strong>Creating a Manta</strong> Atlantic <strong>account</strong></h2><p>Having tokens on Manta Atlantic (Polkadot parachain network) would be best. To bridge the tokens from Manta Pacific (ETH) to Manta Atlantic (Polkadot), please use the official bridge: <a href="https://app.manta.network/manta/bridge?ref=p2p.org">https://app.manta.network/manta/bridge</a>. Note that you need to have an account on Manta Atlantic. The most convenient way is to utilize the Polkadot js extension for Manta Atlantic.</p><p>Remember, your seed phrase is crucial for account access. If lost, you can restore your account with it, but if someone else gets it, they can access it. Store your seed securely on encrypted hard drives, non-digital devices, or ideally on paper, and protect it from physical damage. Never store it on an internet-connected device.</p><h2 id="step-by-step-staking-guide"><strong>Step-by-step staking guide:</strong></h2><p> <br> 1. Navigate to the Manta staking dApp at <a href="https://app.manta.network/manta/stake?ref=p2p.org">https://app.manta.network/manta/stake</a>. When you first visit this dApp, please allow the Polkadot js extension access.</p><p> 2. After you connect, you will see your dashboard page. Please select the "Start staking" button to stake your Manta tokens.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/02/Delegate-20How.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="495" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/02/Delegate-20How.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/02/Delegate-20How.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2024/02/Delegate-20How.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/02/Delegate-20How.png 2107w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p> <br> 3. You will then see the list of available collators. Do your own research before choosing the collator. Remember the basic rules: the minimum stake is 500 Manta, and the maximum number of delegations per collator is 100 (If a collator has more than 100 delegators, the minimum delegation amount to receive rewards will be larger than above 500, depending on the other delegator's stakes.). When the collator is chosen, click the "Stake" button.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/02/Delegate-20Collator.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="854" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2024/02/Delegate-20Collator.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2024/02/Delegate-20Collator.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2024/02/Delegate-20Collator.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2024/02/Delegate-20Collator.png 2080w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p> <br> 4.

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>

Mantle, Staking, LSP P2P.org and Mantle Forge Strategic Alliance to Introduce Enhanced ETH Staking Services

<p>P2P.org has entered into a strategic alliance with Mantle, an emerging DAO-led <strong>ecosystem built around the Ethereum layer 2 Mantle Network</strong>, intending to broaden the availability of liquid staking solutions through the Mantle LSP liquid staking protocol.</p><p>Our decision to join forces with Mantle stemmed from a proactive approach. We saw a unique opportunity with <strong>Mantle's roadmap to develop new liquid staking opportunities</strong>, and P2P.org wanted to offer its expertise to be part of this innovative venture. Mantle LSP requires a reliable staking provider that guarantees fast execution of setting-up and exiting validators.</p><p>Mantle's approach resonated with us, particularly their need for a flexible, no third-party, direct integration flow. It was important for Mantle LSP not to use any third-party intelligent contracts, in essence, to act as a proxy for the request of new validators. This resulted in a more secure staking operation.</p><p><strong>This collaboration allows us to provide tailored solutions, meeting Mantle LSP's specific requirements while expanding our client base </strong>and exploring new staking dynamics similar to leading platforms like Lido. In essence, working with Mantle aligns perfectly with our mission to innovate and adapt in the evolving landscape of Ethereum staking.</p><p>The collaboration between P2P.org and Mantle is aligned with their shared vision of promoting decentralized technologies and encouraging broader participation in the staking ecosystem. This alliance aims to democratize staking rewards and elevate the overall user experience by facilitating easy access to liquid staking opportunities.</p><p>This strategic alliance underscores P2P.org's commitment to delivering innovative, user-centric solutions that foster the growth and adoption of decentralized technologies. Incorporating Mantle LSP's liquid staking capabilities further solidifies P2P.org's standing as a leading staking services provider.</p><p>As the decentralized landscape continues to evolve, P2P.org and Mantle are dedicated to collaboratively developing innovative solutions that enhance user experiences and propel the advancement of staking technologies. This alliance signifies a significant stride in making stakes more accessible and enabling users to participate actively in the decentralized economy.</p><p><strong>An Insight Into Mantle: More Than Just a Network</strong></p><p>Mantle is a beacon for decentralized and token-governed technologies, encompassing an array of products like Mantle Network, Mantle Governance (DAO), and Mantle Treasury. With its native token, $MNT, Mantle states its plan to unify its products and steer its governance, making it a central force within its ecosystem.</p><p><strong>Joining Hands for a Collaborative Future</strong></p><p>Our collaboration with Mantle reflects P2P.org's commitment to a cooperative and collective future for decentralized finance. Throughout this journey, our dedication remains focused on ensuring that our users and the broader community can fully leverage the advantages of this collaborative partnership.</p><p><strong>Contact Us</strong></p><p>For those interested in delving deeper into our joint initiatives with Mantle or gaining a better understanding of P2P.org's overarching vision, <strong>we encourage you to reach out and connect with us.</strong> Embracing the decentralized future, we, alongside partners such as Mantle, look forward to actively contributing to its development.</p><p>To obtain further information about our collaboration or explore Mantle's innovative realm, please visit <a href="https://www.mantle.xyz/?ref=p2p.org">Mantle's official website</a> or engage with our dedicated team on our official <a href="https://t.me/P2Pstaking?ref=p2p.org">Telegram channel.</a></p>

Staking Which PoS Token Should I Stake?

<p>We understand that the Proof of Stake (PoS) ecosystem has grown immensely and is still growing at a quick pace. There is now such a large array of network tokens that can be purchased and staked that it can be difficult to know which ones to go for. <br><br>Our team provides exhaustive financial analysis to provide support for only top-tier staking networks. We have been early participants and stakers for networks such as XTZ, ATOM, SOL, DOT, MINA... and proven to have a knack for choosing highly successful networks to stake with.

With its unique feature of independent sovereignty, blockchains built on cosmos do not need to rely on underlying governance rules, simplifying and increasing the speed for fixes and upgrades. At its core, Cosmos hub is a blockchain that serves as the primary connectivity point in the ecosystem, and in the future it is going to provide shared security among all networks built in the ecosystem. Cosmos native token, ATOM, serves the purpose of paying for transaction fees, can be used to vote on proposals, and can be staked to earn block rewards and helps secure the network. The ecosystem has and is still growing quickly and grabbing a lot of attention in the crypto space.<br><br><strong>Website: </strong><a href="https://cosmos.network/?ref=p2p.org">https://cosmos.network/</a><br><strong>White paper: </strong><a href="https://v1.cosmos.network/resources/whitepaper?ref=p2p.org">https://v1.cosmos.network/resources/whitepaper</a><br><strong>Twitter: </strong><u>https://twitter.com/cosmos</u><br><strong>P2P Staking Page: </strong><a href="https://p2p.org/cosmos?ref=p2p.org">https://p2p.org/cosmos</a><br><strong>Guides: </strong><a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5925248-cosmos-atom-ledger-live-staking-guide?ref=p2p.org">Ledger</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5382165-keplr-ledger-cosmos-atom-staking-guide?ref=p2p.org">Kepler + Ledger</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5382175-imtoken-comos-atom-staking-guide?ref=p2p.org">ImToken</a></p><p>  </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2022/02/image-34.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-34.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-34.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-34.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w2400/2022/02/image-34.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Polkadot is a layer 0, decentralised, parallelised multi-chain blockchain system with the main goals being security and building interoperability amongst networks. Interoperability is the key to blockchain usability, allowing to leverage each blockchains value amongst each other. The architecture of Polkadot consists of the main relay chain and its multiple parachains. The relay chain is responsible for governance and ensuring shared consensus amongst all parachains. Parachains are individual networks with their own use case which all share their state with the relay chain, and can communicate amongst each other to avoid relay chain congestion. Separate blockchains can also be linked to the Polkadot ecosystem via bridges.

Using a Proof-of-History (PoH) consensus mechanism, Solana has the capacity to handle an impressive 710,000 transactions per second with extremely low transaction fees. PoH is similar to PoS, however it uses an element of time providing specific timestamps to blocks, improving the organisation of block validation and allowing for a quicker sequencing. Using the RUST programming language, Solana enables the creation of smart contracts which can be run in a parallel manner.

Indexing is the process of organising blockchain data into subgraphs which allows developers and dapps to find and make use of information in a much quicker manner by simply querying for it. <em>Indexers</em>, like P2P Validator, stake GRT tokens and run nodes in order to index subgraphs, and by doing so earn GRT token rewards. <em>Curators</em> use GRT tokens to signal which subgraphs they believe are the most interesting to index and will earn rewards if their subgraph becomes popular in the future. <em>Delegators</em>, can delegate their GRT tokens to indexers to earn a portion of the indexing rewards earned by indexers. Using this architecture, theGraph manages to create a trustless and decentralised system for organising blockchain data, with the vision of becoming the google of blockchains.

It serves as an decentralised application platform for deploying and executing highly secure smart contracts in a simple manner. It raised an impressive $232M during its ICO in July 2017 and managed to ride out the bear market out, reaching all time highs of $3.80 in Feb 2020. Tezos solves some of the drawbacks of Ethereum: High gas fees, disagreements on upgrades, and smart contract issues. Tezos is one of the first to run a delegated proof of stake (Dpos) consensus mechanism, where “bakers” (such as P2P Validator) secure and manage the network by validating transactions and are advocates in the governance of the chain. Unlike other blockchains, Tezos uses a self-amendment process to upgrade without the need for long winded and costly forks. New proposals are brought forwards and voted on by bakers. If enough support is given to the proposal, it is tested and executed. XTZ token holders can delegate their tokens to bakers who support their vision, creating a democratic and decentralised system for the growth of the network.<br><br><strong>Website: </strong><a href="https://tezos.com/?ref=p2p.org">https://tezos.com/</a><br><strong>White Paper: </strong><a href="https://wiki.tezosagora.org/whitepaper?ref=p2p.org">https://wiki.tezosagora.org/whitepaper</a><br><strong>Twitter: </strong><u>https://twitter.com/tezos</u><br><strong>P2P Staking Page:</strong> <a href="https://p2p.org/tezos?ref=p2p.org">https://p2p.org/tezos</a><br><strong>Guides: </strong><a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5448853-trust-wallet-tezos-xtz-staking-guide?ref=p2p.org">Trust Wallet</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5336393-kukai-wallet-tezos-xtz-staking-guide?ref=p2p.org">Kukai Wallet</a></p><p>  </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2022/03/image-1.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2022/03/image-1.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2022/03/image-1.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2022/03/image-1.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w2400/2022/03/image-1.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Kava is an open sourced, cross-chain, decentralised lending platform that runs on the Cosmos blockchain. Users can use their cryptocurrencies as collateral in exchange for their stable coin, USDX. Users of the Kava platform will receive KAVA for their participation. Once a loan is returned, lenders will need to pay a “stability” fee in KAVA tokens which gets burned and reduces the overall supply of KAVA tokens. KAVA is an inflationary token but the increase in supply is distributed to stakers. Therefore, KAVA stakers could see high returns as they receive staking rewards to combat the inflationary aspect of KAVA, but also see their tokens increase in value once the Kava platform activity grows and more KAVA tokens get burned to pay for fees.</p><p><strong><strong>Website: </strong></strong><a href="https://www.kava.io/?ref=p2p.org">https://www.kava.io/</a><strong><strong>‌</strong></strong><br><strong><strong>‌Twitter: </strong></strong><a href="https://twitter.com/kava_platform?ref=p2p.org">https://twitter.com/kava_platform</a>‌<br>‌<strong><strong>P2P Staking Page: </strong></strong><a href="https://p2p.org/kava?ref=p2p.org">https://p2p.org/kava</a><strong><strong>‌</strong></strong><br><strong><strong>‌Guide: </strong></strong><a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5470329-keplr-wallet-kava-staking-guide?ref=p2p.org">Keplr</a></p><p>   </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2022/02/image-37.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-37.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-37.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-37.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w2400/2022/02/image-37.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Cardano is a third generation blockchain based on fundamental research with a goal to provide a highly scalable smart-contract platform for financial and social decentralised applications.

Oasis provides confidentiality at every layer of the protocol. The network is secured by proof-of-stake where the rectitude of validators responsible for consensus and nodes providing computations is provided by slashing in case of misbehaviour. At the outset, validators are incentivized by gradually decreasing emission schedule and transaction fees. Oasis native token is a staking unit with limited liquidity and low volatility serving the purpose of securing the network and incentivizing nodes to follow the protocol rules. Transaction fees are also denominated in ROSE as well as a payment for provided computations.</p><p><strong>Website: </strong><a href="https://oasisprotocol.org/?ref=p2p.org">https://oasisprotocol.org/</a><strong><br>Twitter: </strong><u>https://twitter.com/OasisProtocol</u><br><strong>P2P Staking Page: </strong><a href="https://p2p.org/oasis?ref=p2p.org">https://p2p.org/oasis</a><strong><br>Guides:</strong> <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5595660-oasis-rose-staking-guide?ref=p2p.org">Oasis official wallet</a></p><p>   </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2022/02/image-41.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-41.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-41.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-41.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w2400/2022/02/image-41.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Terra protocol is a public blockchain built using the cosmos SDK with the intention to create a mass payment processing system as well as creating algorithmic stablecoins.

It has been built to maintain a constant size of 22 kb no matter how much it grows in usage. This allows any user to verify the whole protocol history since it’s genesis block without needing large amounts of storage. This is achieved by using recursive zero-knowledge proofs (zk-SNARKs), to verify that the information is valid without needing to reveal it. This constant size also allows the network to scale in terms of decentralisation since it’s much easier for anyone to run a node. The native token, MINA, is required to participate in block production. It can also be used to purchase SNARK proofs via the Snarketplace. Snapps (SNARK-powered decentralised apps), allow MINA participants to benefit from a vast array of use cases. Potential use cases include Verification of Asset Ownership and Proof of Trade. Both aim to solve current DeFI problems that users experience everyday.<br><br><strong>Website: </strong><a href="https://minaprotocol.com/?ref=p2p.org">https://minaprotocol.com/</a><strong><br>Twitter: </strong><a href="https://twitter.com/MinaProtocol?ref=p2p.org">https://twitter.com/MinaProtocol</a><br><strong>P2P Staking Page: </strong><a href="https://p2p.org/mina?ref=p2p.org">https://p2p.org/mina</a><strong><br>Guides: </strong><a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5307251-clorio-mina-mina-staking-guide?ref=p2p.org">Clorio</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5326940-auro-mina-mina-staking-guide?ref=p2p.org">Auro</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5341996-stakingpower-mina-mina-staking-guide?ref=p2p.org">StakingPower</a></p><p>  </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2022/02/image-47.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-47.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-47.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-47.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w2400/2022/02/image-47.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Elrond is a massively scalable, fast and secure blockchain that utilises sharding to achieve incredibly cheap and fast transactions.

Critical smart-contract bugs result in million dollar losses for developers and users of dApps. They are still considered risky and difficult to use. Agoric simplifies building an application allowing developers to focus on it's purpose and makes interaction with contracts much safer. With the Zoe framework developed by Agoric even a buggy contract won't lead to the loss of funds put inside as they become automatically escrowed. Another well-known problem is a lack of developers in crypto. Inflow of new talents can boost the ecosystem’s growth adding to composability. JavaScript remains the most fast-growing programming language having over 10 millions developers all over the world.

Staking, TheGraph Graph Network - Brief Overview

<p>The Graph Network is an indexing protocol built for the decentralised web. Users of the Graph Network can build and share open APIs across Ethereum and IPFS to allow for fast and reliable blockchain data access. Data is managed and processed via open networks, providing users with verifiable integrity.</p><p></p><h2 id="current-network-state">Current network state</h2><p>The Graph Network was <a href="https://medium.com/graphprotocol/introducing-the-graph-4a281b28203e?ref=p2p.org">introduced</a> in July 2018 and launched their <a href="https://thegraph.com/blog/the-graph-network-launches-mainnet?ref=p2p.org">mainnet</a> this year, on December 17th, as the first decentralized blockchain data network.</p><p>The Graph Network works to improve access to decentralized applications through public and open APIs named subgraphs. Subgraphs dictate which data the network will index from Ethereum, as well as how this data is stored. Upon deployment, a subgraph forms part of a global blockchain data network.<br>During their testnet phase, Graph saw over 200 active indexers, together with more than 1600 individuals, complete their <a href="https://thegraph.com/blog/curator-program-launch?ref=p2p.org">Curator Program</a> for decentralising data across DeFi.</p><p>Between June and November 2020 they have seen a 10x increase - from 1 to 10+ billion monthly queries - with usage across Curve, Uniswap, Decentraland and more.</p><p><br></p><h2 id="grt-token-allocation">GRT Token allocation</h2><p>In October 2020, Graph Foundation <a href="https://thegraph.com/blog/public-sale-announcement?ref=p2p.org">announced a public sale</a> of GRT and successfully raised $12M.

Cosmos, Staking, Kava, Terra, Regen Lost in Cosmos explorers...

<p>Existing Cosmos explorers show limited information. In some cases, reward withdrawal happens not only by initiating <code>withdraw</code> transaction and there are unobvious events, which cause that action. We have added these hidden events to P2P Dashboard, <strong><strong>implemented full reward history across all Cosmos Hub versions and opened it for community</strong></strong>. Below, I will walk through the topic in detail with examples.</p><h3 id="transparency-limit"><strong>Transparency limit</strong></h3><p>Every transaction that is recorded in non-private blockchain can easily be retrieved for analytical or other purposes providing clarity for end users. With such transparency everyone can get a trusted record of any event since the start of the network. But is it really an easy task for someone without deep knowledge in code and various API endpoints to get all the data they need?</p><p>You may argue that there are multiple explorers built for this purpose but each of them focuses on various goals and doesn’t give a complete picture of all events happening in a particular network. For an ordinary user like me, explorers act as a window in this magic world of blockchains and <strong><strong>our understanding is limited by the events various tools decide to display</strong></strong>.</p><p>Blockchains are still new and complex to understand. The increasing number of projects with a different logic and various triggers is aggravating. Transparency matters especially for financial transfers and events that can be used for accounting purposes. For example, in Proof-Of-Stake blockchains it can be a withdrawal of accumulated rewards.</p><p>A diversity of high-quality explorers is significant for building user commitment to the network and facilitating trust although more tools do not always result in better visibility. Some explorers focus more on usability, which is also very important but it still is not conductive to increasing transparency for users of the network.</p><h3 id="unobvious-events-in-tendermint-blockchains"><strong>Unobvious events in Tendermint blockchains</strong></h3><p>Let's take a look at the reward withdrawal process in Cosmos Hub. Surplus accumulates in a validator pool and can be withdrawn to the corresponding staking address manually. Basically, a delegator withdraws rewards at any point of time to receive them on address. Explorers show this operation with names like GetReward or Withdraw Reward. In fact that's not the only action that triggers reward withdrawal.</p><h4 id="example-27-03-2020-"><strong><strong><strong>Example</strong></strong> (27.03.2020)</strong></h4><p>Let's take a random account and check the information about its balance on<a href="https://www.mintscan.io/account/cosmos1d5lu67hu3lhqtw6zyv7uy4gkfpdtfnzxw0wga8?ref=p2p.org"> Mintscan</a> block explorer.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/1-5.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1784" height="547" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/1-5.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/1-5.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/1-5.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/1-5.png 1784w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/2-8.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1799" height="685" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/2-8.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/2-8.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/2-8.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/2-8.png 1799w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>If we calculate total balances using this transaction data we should get:</p><ul><li>Received: <em><em>484,7076 ATOM</em></em></li><li>Delegated: <em><em>474 ATOM</em></em></li><li><em><em>Tx Fees: 0,015 ATOM</em></em></li><li>Available: <strong><strong><em><em>10,692625 ATOM</em></em></strong></strong></li></ul><p>And here are values from<a href="https://www.mintscan.io/account/cosmos1d5lu67hu3lhqtw6zyv7uy4gkfpdtfnzxw0wga8?ref=p2p.org"> Mintscan</a>:</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/3-7.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1890" height="532" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/3-7.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/3-7.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/3-7.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/3-7.png 1890w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>It is also true for the same address on <a href="https://cosmos.bigdipper.live/account/cosmos1d5lu67hu3lhqtw6zyv7uy4gkfpdtfnzxw0wga8?ref=p2p.org">Forbole</a>:</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/4-4.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1889" height="570" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/4-4.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/4-4.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/4-4.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/4-4.png 1889w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>We see an additional 0,971002 ATOM on the available balance, but where did they come from if there was no withdraw transaction made by this account? Of course you may say it's even less than 1 ATOM who cares? But systems based on a code should not allow any mistake. So, is the displayed balance correct or wrong? Let's look into it.</p><p>In fact, the balance is correct. <strong><strong>There are hidden events that trigger reward withdrawal but are not displayed on most explorers</strong></strong>. These tools serve another purpose and these events do not correspond much to the observation of what is happening in general. Nevertheless, these triggers are still crucial for generating full withdrawal history and bringing clarity for delegators.</p><p>There are five core types of actions delegators usually perform:</p><ul><li>Delegate to a validator</li><li>Redelegate to another validator</li><li>Undelegate from a validator</li><li>Withdraw accumulated rewards</li><li>Send available tokens to another address</li></ul><p>The first four of them initiate reward withdrawal, which is usually not displayed for the first three actions by most explorers.</p><p>On P2P Dashboard you can check reward withdrawals related to the same address.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/5-4.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1895" height="482" srcset="https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/5-4.png 600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/5-4.png 1000w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/5-4.png 1600w, https://p2p.org/economy/content/images/2020/09/5-4.png 1895w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>In some cases, to apply updates of the network, validators stop producing blocks and upgrade node software. This process requires a transition to a new chain with a new genesis file that stores the actual state at the moment of chain halt. When the new chain becomes active what happens with accumulated rewards?</p><p>These rewards also become available, the transition to the new chain triggers withdrawal but the event is also hidden and not obvious to delegators.</p><h3 id="p2p-dashboard"><strong>P2P Dashboard</strong></h3><p>Every public network needs a variety of analytical tools to allow people without advanced technical skills to get information about what is going on from different angles. In Proof-Of-Stake blockchains a clear reward history and accessibility of historical data are especially important. <strong><strong>What if you need to prove received reward referring to a particular event that simply does not displayed by any explorer?</strong></strong></p><p>Thinking of that, we decided to conduct technical research to make all rewards and withdrawals together with corresponding messages accessible and transparent across all versions of Cosmos Hub.</p><blockquote><em><em>We have added ability to check all withdrawal events across all versions of Cosmos Hub on <a href="https://p2p.org/?utm_source=blog&utm_medium=economy&utm_campaign=cosmos_dashboard_release#dashboard-block">P2P Dashboard</a> and made it open for community.
