Cosmos Stargate and the new beginning of Cosmos

<p>We have voted YES to initiate the Stargate upgrade for the Cosmos Hub. We believe in the potential of the Cosmos ecosystem to grow and that<a href="https://stargate.cosmos.network/"> Stargate</a> opens a new page of ecosystem evolution being a huge step towards the original Internet of Blockchains vision.</p><p>By being an active contributor to the Cosmos ecosystem, P2P has built the dashboard to track delegation history across all the hub versions and claim rewards - a ledger delegation interface to securely stake in three simple steps. We participated in<a href="https://cosmos.network/goz"> Game of Zones</a> to test IBC in action and won the first prize in two phases. Our validator has taken part in a series of<a href="https://github.com/cosmosdevs/stargate#testnet"> testnets</a> since the beginning to prepare.</p><p><a href="https://stargate.cosmos.network/">Stargate</a> is the largest upgrade in the Cosmos ecosystem due date. What does it mean for the Cosmos network?</p><h3 id="road-to-million-blockchains">Road to million blockchains</h3><p>The current state of the ecosystem can be compared to the cities of a country struggling to communicate without capital and financial centers to connect them with each other. With the enablement of<a href="https://github.com/cosmos/ics/blob/master/papers/2020-05/build/paper.pdf"> Inter-Blockchain Communication</a> (IBC) the value can be seamlessly transferred across the ecosystem unleashing the synergetic effect among application-specific blockchains. Cosmos Hub will become the first intermedium to connect them with each other.</p><p><strong>The real long term challenge is to attract more builders and projects to the ecosystem to increase the cumulative value flow within the network.</strong> Notable improvements in performance and migration to<a href="https://medium.com/tendermint/tendermint-0-34-protocol-buffers-and-you-8c40558939ae"> Protobuf</a> blockchains will implement the upgrade to achieve higher throughput to handle the rising transaction volume. The ability to interoperate will bring composability to the ecosystem, with Protobuf it will be much easier for developers using various programming languages to communicate within the ecosystem and create novel applications.</p><p>In synergy with tools like<a href="https://github.com/tendermint/starport"> Starport</a> that allow developers to launch blockchains with a few commands and further coordinate the testnets with validators much faster, we can imagine the emergence of novel use cases and accelerated growth in areas like Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and Collectible economies powered by Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT).</p><h3 id="road-to-stargate-and-ibc">Road to Stargate and IBC</h3><p>Secure connection between blockchains requires trust in validators maintaining the actual state of the network. The Game-of-Stakes attracted and prepared solid staking providers and in March of 2019 Cosmos Hub was successfully launched on mainnet. There were two major upgrades, for the first year the focus was to battle-test staking, on-chain governance and provide a stable functioning network with a strong set of contributors.</p><p>Game of Stakes granted validators experience to be flexible to changing network conditions and on the 1st of May 2020 another incentivized competition called<a href="https://cosmos.network/goz"> Game of Zones</a> was launched to collect valuable data and prepare teams for the release of the IBC module. There were more than 150 participants.</p><p>IBC has been in development since the release of the original Cosmos whitepaper  - ongoing work to prepare and release the first version of the <a href="https://github.com/cosmos/ics/blob/master/spec.pdf">IBC specification</a> that outlines the overall design logic and architectural overview.</p><p>The plan of transition from hub-3 to hub-4 was outlined in the<a href="https://www.mintscan.io/cosmos/proposals/27"> Stargate proposal</a>. It was followed up with a<a href="https://stargate.cosmos.network/"> series of testnets</a> to examine the main features and ensure that the ecosystem participants are prepared for software changes being in line with the upgrade procedure.</p><p>On December 15th the finalized<a href="https://blog.cosmos.network/announcing-the-ibc-1-0-implementation-release-candidate-29f3245d7848"> version 1.0 of the IBC candidate</a> was announced. Multiple teams and contributors were involved in the process of improving, testing and finding bugs.</p><p>And now we have come to the point to finally bring the original vision of interoperability to the Cosmos network.</p><h3 id="what-to-expect-after-the-stargate-upgrade">What to expect after the Stargate upgrade?</h3><p>The rollout will happen in two phases as happened with with the launch of the Cosmos Hub on mainnet. During the first phase cross-chain transfers will be disabled to ensure the network is stable. Activation of the token transfer protocol will happen via on-chain governance. A proposal with parameter changes and timelines will be submitted and if passed we can utilize a fully functioning TCP/IP for blockchains in production.</p><p>With the enablement of the IBC, healthy competition among hubs can drive the development of the whole ecosystem. Novel use cases like liquidity mining over IBC can become a reality. New projects will be able to easily attract validators from the hub and ATOM will play the role of insurance against misbehavior providing strong security guarantees for new projects in the Cosmos network. Another interesting utility is that ATOM might be able to accrue fees in whitelisted tokens.</p><p>The IBC is still in its early days and adoption will take some time. Cosmos has made huge progress in these two years and P2P is proud to be part of it as a validator and contributor from the very beginning of the journey.</p><h3 id="about-p2p-validator">About P2P Validator</h3><p>P2P Validator is a world-leading non-custodial staking provider securing more than $650 million from over 4,500 delegators across 25+ top-notch networks.

Staking, Graph Network Graph Network - Brief Overview

<p>The Graph Network is an indexing protocol built for the decentralised web.

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">introduced</a> in July 2018 and launched their <a href="https://thegraph.com/blog/the-graph-network-launches-mainnet">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">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">announced a public sale</a> of GRT and successfully raised $12M.

Flow P2P Validator Joins FLOW as a Node Operator

<p>Crypto-collectibles are currently gaining a lot of traction and the demand for non-fungible tokens (NFT) spiked with<a href="https://nonfungible.com/market/history"> over $2M weekly volume</a>. <strong>NFTs represent a proof-of-ownership for a unique asset that can be used to exchange in-game assets, to define copyrights for publishers or proof of authenticity by digital art creators.</strong> In 2017, the Cryptokitties game on Ethereum was the most popular blockchain enabled consumer application that revealed the hidden potential of crypto-collectibles. Three years later, it still remains one of the largest NFT games by sales volume.</p><p>Due to Ethereum scaling limitations and aggravating user experience, the team behind CryptoKitties spent the last two years in R&amp;D to build a new blockchain platform that could address mainstream consumer scale needs, while offering an unparalleled user experience. Flow is a new blockchain built for the next generation of apps, games, and the digital assets that power them.</p><p>Flow is designed for better user experience with multi-role architecture that allows the achievement of speed improvements without sharding, ensuring composability of applications. Resource oriented programming and upgradeable smart-contracts provide flexibility for developers. Flow uses proof-of-stake achieving relatively fast transaction finality. Though Flow is a multi-purpose general blockchain not limited to any specific use-case, <strong>it has the potential to become the leading platform for building decentralized gaming applications and power the growth of crypto-collectible economies.</strong></p><p><em>With that in mind, P2P Validator is excited to announce the launch of Collector, Verification and Consensus nodes to increase Flow decentralization as part of our commitment to support the development of open and censorship-resistant collectible economies.</em></p><p><strong>If you are interested in staking with us follow a few simple steps from our <a href="https://economy.p2p.org/flow-ledger-delegation-guide/?utm_source=flow_annoncement&amp;utm_campaign=flow_guide">staking guide</a>.</strong></p><p>Our team has extensive experience in setting up secure infrastructure.

Nucypher NuCypher Brief Overview

<p>NuCypher is a decentralized secret management network where a group of nodes (workers) perform proxy re-encryption to manage permissions on encrypted data instead of a centralized server. It allows safe data exchange without ability for proxies to learn the plain text info. Correctness of worker behavior is guaranteed by staking and cryptographic proofs. Additional token emission incentivizes node operators to maintain high availability infrastructure and in the case of network rules violation a portion of their holdings will be slashed.</p><h3 id="current-state-and-market-potential"><strong>Current state and market potential</strong></h3><p>NuCypher mainnet successfully launched on 15th October 2020 allowing token holders to stake their NU.</p><p>Privacy of sensitive data is a vexed problem and services provided by NuCypher project are attractive and valuable not only in crypto space. The highest growth of<a href="https://www.statista.com/statistics/798564/number-of-us-residents-affected-by-data-breaches/"> data breaches in USA</a> was in the healthcare sector demonstrating 80% increase from 2017 to 2019 including the transmission of confidential data without proper encryption.</p><p>Enterprises also are seeking ways to avoid data leaks and securely manage and share sensitive data.<a href="https://www.marketresearchfuture.com/reports/key-management-service-market-8188"> The Global Key Management as a Service Market</a> market size is expected to grow from $363 million in 2018 to $1,28 billion by 2023 and is estimated to reach $2,29 billion by 2025 during the period 2019–2025.</p><h3 id="token-allocation"><strong>Token allocation</strong></h3><p>NuCypher raised $750k in 2016 ; $4.3 million in 2017 and $10,7 million in 2018.

At the start rewards from providing re-encryptions might be low so until the project gets traction, node operators will be incentivized mostly by emission of new tokens. <strong>Holders can delegate their funds and earn a share of rewards in proportion to their stake.</strong></p><p><strong>Compensation is higher when tokens are locked for a longer period.</strong> To get maximum compensation stakers have to lock their funds for at least a year to be allowed to accept policies with longer terms. Shorter commitment will result in lower rewards for participants and they will not be allowed to provide re-encryption if the length of a particular policy is higher than chosen lock-up period. <strong>Staking since the beginning of mainnet with compounding of rewards also will result in higher returns.</strong> The whole stake can be split into sub-stakes where each will have its own lock-up period.</p><p>In existing representation only one staker can delegate to a worker in near future, staker can be a smart contract that accepts delegations from various addresses. We believe in future adoption of NuCypher and will provide the long term staking maximizing staking rewards.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/10/table-14.png" class="kg-image" alt srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/10/table-14.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2020/10/table-14.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/10/table-14.png 1368w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><h3 id="native-token"><strong>Native token</strong></h3><p>NuCypher token NU is ERC20 token the main purpose of which is to act as a staking token in the network with limited liquidity and low volatility. Amount of provided re-encryptions will be proportional to stake which is guaranteed to be locked at the end time of the policy. Node operators with higher stake presuming higher loss in case of bad behavior and ability to accept policies with longer terms.</p><p>NuCypher based on Ethereum blockchain means that users should have ETH on the worker node’s address to pay tx fees. Workers also share service fees paid by end users in ETH for providing re-encryptions.</p><p>Over 350 000 ETH were locked in the smart contract by participants to take part in<a href="https://blog.nucypher.com/the-worklock/"> WorkLock token distribution model</a> proposed by NuCypher team.</p><h3 id="slashing-risks"><strong>Slashing risks</strong></h3><p>There are two potential slashing conditions:</p><ul><li>Providing incorrect responses</li><li>Continuous downtime</li></ul><p>At network genesis, the protocol will be able to detect and attribute instances of incorrect re-encryptions. If there are many sub-stakes and misbehavior occurs, unlocked tokens which do not participate in staking will be slashed in the first place and then ascending sub-stakes with lower lock-ups.</p><p>A false re-encryption is not like a double-sign. Correctness of a re-encryption can be proved via a zero-knowledge proof. If users receive incorrect re-encryption, they can provide this proof to the network, which will result in the node getting slashed. <strong>For each violation, 2×10−18 NU tokens will be deleted from the offender’s stake</strong>. <br><br>In the future, slashing parameters can be changed by the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) that is managed by NU stakeholders who operate nodes. It makes NuCypher a community driven project from the very beginning.</p><p>At network launch slashing for worker unavailability is turned off until it will be enabled by the DAO if needed. <strong>Stakers will not receive inflation rewards for any period the node is offline</strong>.

Oasis Oasis brief overview

<p>Oasis protocol is a decentralized privacy-preserving platform for cloud computing that allows safe data sharing and ownership enabling computationally complex 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 misbehavior. At the outset, validators are incentivized by gradually decreasing emission schedule and transaction fees.</p><h3 id="current-state-and-market-potential"><strong>Current state and market potential</strong></h3><p>Oasis team plans to launch Mainnet Beta (fully featured network with disabled transfers) soon after Mainnet Dry Run that is launched to ensure that the network is healthy.</p><p><a href="https://www.gartner.com/en/newsroom/press-releases/2019-04-02-gartner-forecasts-worldwide-public-cloud-revenue-to-g">Gartner projects</a> the market size and growth of the cloud services industry at nearly three time the growth of overall IT services by 2022.
