Cosmos Introducing Neutron

Neutron is proposed to launch as a Consumer-Chain secured by the Cosmos Hub.</h3><!--kg-card-begin: markdown--><p> </p> <!--kg-card-end: markdown--><p>The vision of an ecosystem of the sovereign, interconnected blockchains is coming to life. As the technology underpinning Cosmos matures, adoption is picking up: a recent example, dYdX, a major Ethereum Perp-Trading protocol, announced it was moving to a custom App-Chain to provide better order book trading services to its users.</p><p>Not all protocols need the same degree of customization as dYdX does, though, and most would rather avoid the overhead associated with the construction of a generic zone. For these protocols, there needs to be a secure, well-connected CosmWasm hub where to deploy.</p><p>Currently, such a zone does not exist: no chain is as secure as the Cosmos Hub, and Proposal 69 showed the community’s preference for virtual machines to be released on Consumer-Chains, rather than the Hub itself.</p><p>Today, we are proud to announce we are making the Cosmonauts’ vision a reality: Introducing Neutron, a permission-less, Interchain-Secured CosmWasm smart-contracting environment for the Interchain.</p><!--kg-card-begin: markdown--><p> </p> <!--kg-card-end: markdown--><h3 id="what-is-neutron">What is Neutron?</h3><p>Neutron is designed to be the premier venue for Interchain Smart-Contract deployment:</p><p>Built with the Cosmos SDK, Neutron features native support for CosmWasm, a virtual machine that allows smart contracts written in Rust, AssemblyScript and other coding languages to run on Cosmos blockchains. The resulting smart-contracts have significant benefits over the release of code into an Appchain’s binary: they benefit from a large library of testing tools, are easier to deploy and upgrade, and can be audited more efficiently.</p><p>To protect its ecosystem from the get go, Neutron would be secured by 175 validators and roughly 186M staked ATOM, worth $1.5Bn at the time of writing. This is made possible by a technology called Interchain Security, which lets validators from a Provider-Chain (e.g. the Cosmos Hub) produce blocks for a Consumer-Chain (e.g. Neutron). Node operators are rewarded with additional native tokens, but can be sanctioned if they fail to validate the Consumer-Chain. In a nutshell, Interchain Security would provide Neutron with the same degree of security as the Cosmos Hub, the 10th largest blockchain by value staked.</p><p>Neutron is Interchain-oriented: it supports the Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol (IBC), Interchain Accounts (ICA), as well as Interchain Queries (ICQ), at launch. Initially, Interchain Queries will be provided by a custom implementation developed by P2P, and upgraded to the official release once it is available. This allows any protocol deploying on Neutron to effortlessly communicate with the rest of IBC, and enables complex operations such as interchain liquid staking or cross-chain collateralization.</p><p>Last but not least, Neutron is permission-less: it is an open platform where anyone can deploy code to join the Interchain’s economy. Neutron is a neutral foundation on which anything can be built. It does not presume the worth of a project, and does not favor the interests of a protocol over that of another. Neutron is a public-good, owned by the community, by its users.</p><!--kg-card-begin: markdown--><p> </p> <!--kg-card-end: markdown--><h3 id="what-is-p2p">What is P2P?</h3><p><a href="https://p2p.org/">P2P</a> is a professional validator and a non-custodial staking provider which secures more than $1.5Bn in assets across the industry.</p><p>A long-term contributor to the Cosmos ecosystem, P2P has been securing the Cosmos Hub since genesis. It participated in the ATOM fundraiser and regularly open-sources its tooling.</p><p>At P2P, we have a strong conviction in the Interchain’s vision, which is why we help secure sixteen Cosmos networks, including Kava, Agoric, Evmos, Oasis and others.</p><p>P2P is an established player with valuable relationships across the DeFi industry: we see the need for a secure, permission-less, well-connected and reliable smart-contract platform.

Kava Kava 10 Upgrade Launch

<p>Kava is an open sourced, cross-chain, decentralised lending platform that runs on the Cosmos blockchain. The Cosmos ecosystem, referred to as the internet of blockchains, is a decentralised network of scalable and interoperable blockchains each with an independent governance structure. Interoperability is achieved through inter blockchain communications protocol (IBC) and is the key to simplify the access and interaction of a wide range of blockchain-enabled products and services. The ecosystem has and is still growing at a remarkable rate - attracting an impressive amount of attention in the crypto space. However, it still has some distance to cover in order to catch up with Ethereum in terms of attracting developers and the amount of applications it supports.<br><br>The Kava 10 upgrade brings a unique co-chain architecture that combines Ethereum and Cosmos into a single, scalable network.<br><br>Ethereum is massive. It is the 2nd blockchain in terms of market cap and has arguably the largest user and developer community and the most applications of all networks, but such popularity has also led to congestion. The resulting high transaction fees became an issue that could stall the growth of the ecosystem leading to the rise of layer 2 solutions to solve these inherent scalability issues. Ethereum also certainly loses the comparison with the Cosmos ecosystem in terms of interoperability, requiring cross-chain bridges to achieve this feature. Nevertheless, the utility of <a href="https://ethereum.org/en/developers/docs/evm/">EVM smart contracts</a> and a vast and established community of Solidity developers bring great value to Ethereum.<br><br>Kava 10 brings together the best of both worlds (representing a combined market cap of 300B USD and a large user base), serving as a IBC-compatible EVM-based chain where users will now have all the desired utility and features of Ethereum while benefiting from the fast finality and high-throughput of Tendermint PoS implementation. What's more, Cosmos and Ethereum users will soon be able to transfer this value amongst and between both ecosystems using IBC and emerging bridge projects.<br><br>This is provided by the new co-chain architecture of Kava 10. The existing Kava chain was transformed into the Cosmos co-chain, while a new Ethereum co-chain was introduced. They are linked by a translator module and are secured by a common Tendermint consensus engine. Such architecture enables users to work seamlessly with both environments at the same time.  </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/9fabfef84btmAYt-3-J__yFhFcWroWs9V-4uZB-JE33jHiT6KstcIM2RYBujXB6oB853MjqtE9b-JhYLQjFvk0PvEs7v3a_xkV1Jqbwfmzx1BB3JTx5HHZsCS4jZNvfzVg40-4TL0xsKZlt_3Q" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy"></figure><h3 id="what-features-does-kava-10-bring"><strong>What features does KAVA 10 bring?</strong></h3><p>The ability to use Ethereum Dapps on alternative blockchains is on the rise. Moonbeam, Evmos, and others have already created their EVM to take advantage of the opportunity. Now comes Kava. <br><br>With the Kava 10 launch, the opportunities for both developers and users have just expanded massively. The main feature allows users to wrap and unwrap $KAVA as an ERC-20 token on metamask, making it usable across multiple apps on the ETH ecosystem. This is a huge step in bridging the Cosmos and Ethereum ecosystems together. Kava 10 turns on the Kava Network’s Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which brings a big boost to DeFi protocols through access to various Automated Market Maker (AMM) smart contracts, oracles, subgraph indexing powered by The Graph and more.<br><br>With the launch of the Ethereum Bridge, projected to be released in Q4 2022 users and developers will be able to wrap IBC assets as ERC-20 tokens on the Ethereum chain while Ethereum and ERC-20 tokens can be wrapped on the Cosmos chain to be used across both DeFi ecosystems. This expands the opportunities and amount of incentives that can be provided which benefits both users and the protocols.<br><br>This upgrade comes in the wake of the Kava Pioneer Program, which has recently concluded with the goal of developing the Kava ecosystem, rewarding both projects and developers that contributed to it. With KAVA now available on the Ethereum network, the goal is to make KAVA adoption more mainstream. The Pioneer program is now followed by Kava Rise - a $750M developers rewards program. It is funded by 80% out of a 100% inflation which has been turned on for a year’s period in March 2022 - a great sign of the project’s commitment to support growth and development based on the new co-chain architecture. Coupled with the launch of the Ethereum bridge later this year, the growth instigated by the Pioneer &amp; Rise programs is expected to continue for the Kava ecosystem.</p><h3 id="conclusion"><strong>Conclusion </strong></h3><p>What Ethereum lacks Cosmos delivers. With Kava 10, developers can easily build on a network where its users will not suffer from high fees and slow throughput. In the end, this upgrade is a step forward towards a multi-chain future where multiple networks can coexist and benefit each other serving various needs.<br></p><h3 id="kava-special-offerfree-staking-for-3-months"><strong>KAVA special offer - free staking for 3 months!</strong></h3><p>To celebrate the Kava 10 launch we have decided to create a special offer for<a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%24KAVA&amp;src=cashtag_click"> KAVA</a> holders!

Solana Lido on Solana: Validator's Set Vision

<p>Lido applies the same mission to all blockchains they participate in - to make staking simple, secure, and decentralized.  Each of the networks has its own specifics when it comes to "what a good validator set means”.</p><p>We propose a new way of developing the Lido validator's set on Solana and in our opinion, a sustainable and solid set should follow 3 principles:</p><p><strong>1. Validator set should be decentralized</strong></p><p>According to <a href="https://solanabeach.io/validators">Solana Beach</a>, there are currently 1,788 validators on Solana, giving the network a Nakamoto Coefficient of 25. This means that the top 25 validators control enough staked Solana to collude and attack the network. The<a href="https://spl.solana.com/stake-pool"> staking pool program</a> emerged with the goal to redistribute the stakes more evenly across the network. In our view, to create a decentralized set, we must adhere to the following rules:</p><ul><li>Increase the number of independent entities that create and maintain infrastructure for the network.</li><li>Increase censorship resistance by reducing the concentration of stake in the same data centers and jurisdictions.</li><li>Not distribute stake to the superminority group of validators.</li></ul><p>To make the Lido on Solana validator set more decentralized we plan to:</p><ul><li>Not add validators nodes from the superminority group to the Lido validator set</li><li>Increase the number of distributed nodes in the pool by removing barriers in the form of 100% commission nodes.</li><li>Bring in validators from other ecosystems and non-crypto projects.</li><li>Train new operators to configure and run nodes.</li><li>Assist validators with server configuration and data center location.</li><li>Onboard independent validators into the Solana cluster and Lido pool</li></ul><p><strong>2.</strong> <strong><strong>The set must be attractive for validators</strong></strong></p><p>To ensure a highly available and secure staking infrastructure, it is critical to consider the long-term sustainability of the operator and the ability to fund new equipment. Operators are responsible for managing risks, maintaining their node, ensuring the highest uptime possible, troubleshooting errors. To make the set more attractive to validators, we must adhere to the following rules:</p><ul><li>Operators must earn well enough to build a profitable, reliable staking business.</li><li>Validator nodes must be able to participate in subsidy programs (ex. SFDP)</li><li>Operators should receive marketing support to attract stakes.</li></ul><p>To make the Lido on Solana validator set more attractive to validators, we will do the following:</p><ul><li>Change the <a href="https://github.com/ChorusOne/solido">smart contract</a> by removing 100% of nodes and adding the ability to use a public node in a cluster to participate in the Lido program</li><li>Create a P&amp;L tool to calculate validator yield and share it with the community.</li><li>Provide marketing support to validators in Lido’s set to increase the stake on their public node and help to build a profitable staking business.</li></ul><p><strong>3. <strong>The validator set has to bring value to the network</strong></strong></p><p>Validator performance metrics are, in our opinion, one of the most important criteria for developing the Solana ecosystem. The faster, cheaper, and more sustainable the network, the easier it is to attract investments, partners, and NFT/DeFi/P2E project developers, leading to the development of a sustainable community and product ecosystem.  For DeFi users, speed of transactions is important; for oracles, the ability to quickly provide more detailed data on a large number of quotes; for developers, a better user experience; for stakers, greater rewards on average and higher SOL price growth potential<strong>.</strong></p><p>To make the set more productive and sustainable the following rules should be adhered to:</p><ul><li>Operators must understand the value of metrics and be able to compare their performance with the best on the network</li><li>Operators must be notified about software updates</li><li>Operators must understand how to update without downtime</li></ul><p>To make the Lido on Solana validator set more stable and productive, we will do the following:</p><ul><li>Publish our vision of "good validator" performance metrics</li><li>Make a public dashboard displaying validator metrics</li><li>Make a system of alerts for problems with validator performance in the pool</li><li>Conduct education and share best practices for validator management in Solana</li></ul><h2 id="conclusion">Conclusion</h2><p>There are ~384.5M SOL staked on the Solana network, of which only ~9.7M SOL is distributed among various staking pools. P2P has partnered with Lido and stSOL since their launch as a validator and has been involved in the development of TVL in collaboration with Lido through incentives, integrations, and more. We see great potential for the development of liquid staking, which will increase economic activity and the speed of the economy in a decentralized network.  </p><p>Three key principles will form the basis of our new strategy:</p><ul><li>Truly decentralize the validator network by simplifying entry and adding validators from other ecosystems.</li><li>Make the network economically attractive for validators by dropping 100% nodes and marketing support from Lido</li><li>Ensure that the validator set works better for the network to ensure transactions are passed and various applications are running on the network. </li></ul><p>If you have ideas or suggestions for achieving our principles, we are always open to community feedback and consider it very important.</p><p>Join the new validator set! Together we will make Solana even more decentralized and sustainable!</p><p><br></p><p><br></p>

P2P's Stance on Terra Current State of Affairs

<p>At P2P Validator we have been closely following the current situation with Terra. By now everyone has had an opportunity to bring forward a solution and an <a href="https://agora.terra.money/t/terra-ecosystem-revival-plan-2-updated-and-final/18498">important proposal</a> has just been put up for onchain voting. We would like to express our position concerning the current state of things and ways to move forward.</p><p>In our governance decisions, we aim to maximize value for the community, represented by the following three groups:</p><ul><li>LUNA and UST holders from before the depeg event. This is the core community of the Terra ecosystem, including some long-time holders. We can assume that most of them had some degree of involvement, not just a short-term speculative interest. This is also the group which has suffered most from the fast crash of their investments. That is why we believe that any course of action should first prioritise the interests of these people. Inside this group, UST holders should be prioritised higher than LUNA holders, because the former invested on a promise of a low-risk, stable asset, while the latter worked with a naturally volatile asset - thus the difference in approach.</li><li>Protocol teams and validators. These are the key stakeholders for building value for the ecosystem, who have invested time and money to facilitate Terra’s growth. In addition to being harmed by the current situation, these are the only actors who can rebuild the ecosystem, thus creating new value, which can be used to repay other community members who suffered from the depeg. That is why we have to keep their interests in mind, as a second-level priority.</li><li>Post depeg holders of LUNA and UST. We should give a lower priority to their interests. These holders joined in on an extremely volatile asset, taking a risk to gain high rewards. The community is not responsible for providing them with an artificial safety net.<br></li></ul><p>And there is also TFL - a major stakeholder, whose actions during the crisis are questionable, with some legal action expected against them soon. We don’t believe that any plan should focus on protecting TFL as they should have been fully aware of the risks they were taking.</p><p>To sum up, old holders &gt; protocol teams &amp; validators &gt; new holders &gt;&gt; TFL.</p><p>Our options are currently few - we can either find a way to compensate the victims with existing funds (presumably from TFL/LFG) and stop the chain OR try to build new value to do that while also saving the ecosystem (presumably in the form of a new chain). The former option relies on the good will of TFL who are committed to option 2. There is just no valuable asset left in Terra to do that, so it seems like the only option we have is to build. The building option can follow three general paths:</p><ol><li>New chain under TFL’s leadership (i.e. <a href="https://agora.terra.money/t/terra-ecosystem-revival-plan-2-updated-and-final/18498">proposal 1623</a>) - we can save the ecosystem and the community, try to bring new value, albeit with a dubious leader ahead of the process, who, however, has been the only one capable of decisive actions on the ecosystem level since May 8. We will only be supportive of this proposal if we see a clear indication that TFL and LFG are excluded from the token distribution, TFL has a compelling vision for the new project, and TFL is not perceived as toxic by the community. We can not vote YES for such a proposal at the moment.The issues are: only one address excluded for TFL and none for LFG, no clear vision for the new chain, general disbelief from the community. However, we would support introducing an incentive program for TFL (e.g. tiered unlock of funds tied to the new chain’s market cap) if the aforementioned issues are solved - otherwise there is no reason for them to lead and participate if all their accounts are excluded at genesis.</li><li>New chain without TFL. Same as above, but the progress is to be driven by the community (most likely protocol teams + validators). This is a fresh start, but the success without a leadership structure in such turbulent conditions is questionable. We will be happy to support the proposals that follow this path if we see a new leadership team among the community members who can drive this endeavour.</li><li>Move projects to other chains and restart there. These might be a good option for some specific teams, but it leaves the victims of depeg alone.w</li></ol><p>P.S. Separately, there is an alternative path explored by the ‘Burn LUNA’ <a href="https://station.terra.money/proposal/1273">proposal</a>. This one in particular lacks sufficient detail to be accepted in such form. Specifically, it does not describe any clear benefits for the stakeholders, and the implementation plan is ambiguous. Nevertheless, we will conduct additional research to see if this line of thinking could be promising for the UST / LUNA holders.</p><hr><p><strong><strong>About P2P Validator</strong></strong></p><p><em><em><a href="https://p2p.org/">P2P Validator</a> is a world-leading staking provider with the best industry security  practices and proven expertise.

Claiming the airdrop will not be live until Phase 2 (3-4 days after the relaunch). </p><p><strong>Q: When will staking rewards be enabled?</strong></p><p>A: In the spirit of fairness, rewards will be disabled until Phase 3, at minimum 5-6 days after relaunch to give everyone a fair chance to claim.</p><p><strong>Q: Who is eligible to claim?</strong></p><p>A: If you staked <strong>OSMO</strong>, or <strong>ATOM</strong>, or paid gas on top dApps on <strong>Etherium </strong>before Nov 26th 2021, you are likely to be eligible for Evmos airdrop. You can find more information on eligibility in the following article under “<a href="https://evmos.blog/the-evmos-rektdrop-abbe931ba823">Rektdrop Eligibility</a>”. </p><p><strong>Q: What wallets can be used to claim and stake my EVMOS?</strong></p><p>A: Currently only Metamask. To claim on Keplr we hav to wait for IBC transfers to be enabled. Ledger connections will work very soon too. Staking rewards are disabled until everyone has a fair chance to claim. </p><p><strong>Q: Where and how do I claim my tokens?</strong></p><p>A: An updated guide will be provided shortly after relaunch.</p><p><strong>Q: How long do I have to claim my EVMOS tokens?</strong></p><p>A: There is no timeline yet.</p><p><strong>Q: What happened during the mainnet failure?</strong></p><p>A: The Evmos team found a critical security vulnerability that required a quick upgrade. This upgrade was ill-tested and caused several double-signing errors requiring the chain to be halted to solve the issue.</p><p><strong>Q: Can I buy Evmos?</strong></p><p>A: There currently is no exchange to purchase EVMOS, however it is estimated that a Evmos DEXs will be set shortly after mainnet. Later we may also see exchange services provided by Osmosis zone, Diffusion Finance, Cronus Finance, Exswap, Evmoswap... Look out for the one with the most liquidity. One of them will probably win the race and become the dominant DEX</p><p><strong>Q: Can I transfer my Evmos?</strong></p><p>A: Yes, once the chain is relaunched transfers will work within Evmos. IBCs will be enabled soon after the relaunch.</p><p><strong>Q: What dapps are built on Evmos?</strong></p><p>A: You can find a list of dapps coming to Evmos <a href="https://github.com/tharsis/awesome">here</a>.</p><p><strong>Q: What is Diffusion?</strong></p><p>A: <a href="https://chaindebrief.com/all-you-need-to-know-about-diffusion-finance/">Diffusion Finance</a> is a Uniswap V2 fork, one of the first AMMs for Evmos — an EVM that leverages the Cosmos SDK enabling use cases around composability, interoperability and fast finality.</p><p><strong>Q: How to access to Testnet?</strong></p><p>A: Tech doc to set up the node: <a href="https://evmos.dev/testnet/join.html">https://evmos.dev/testnet/join.html</a>.

NuCypher, Threshold Threshold Staking Guide

<p>The <a href="https://www.nucypher.com/">NuCypher Network</a> has merged with the <a href="https://keep.network/">KEEP Network</a> to form the <a href="https://threshold.network/">Threshold Network</a>. We have checked the <a href="https://docs.nucypher.com/en/latest/">official instructions</a> and summarised all the steps required to stake T in this short guide.</p><p>If you have an existing NU/KEEP stake, you can withdraw it and then upgrade tokens to T and stake. However if you are subject to a vesting agreement, your unvested stake will not be immediately withdrawable, but you can still stake it in Threshold. You will find instructions in the second part of this guide.</p><h3 id="how-to-stake-t-when-you-have-liquid-tokens-nu-or-keep"><strong>How to stake T when you have liquid tokens (NU or KEEP)</strong></h3><p>1. If you have staked NU or KEEP you need to withdraw the tokens first. You can do it on <a href="https://stake.nucypher.network/manage/withdraw">NU dashboard</a> or <a href="https://dashboard.keep.network/overview">KEEP dashboard</a>. Just follow the link, connect your wallet and click the withdraw button.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2022/04/image.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1256" height="584" srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2022/04/image.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2022/04/image.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2022/04/image.png 1256w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>2. Upgrade your NU/KEEP tokens to T via the <a href="https://dashboard.threshold.network/upgrade.)">Threshold Network Dashboard</a>. Connect your wallet and click “upgrade token”. It will ask you to enter an amount of NU/KEEP and convert it to T.</p><div class="kg-card kg-callout-card kg-callout-card-purple"><div class="kg-callout-emoji">💡</div><div class="kg-callout-text"><em>Notice that the vending machine contract uses a static conversion ratio and remains available indefinitely, so please be safe, take your time, and confirm everything!</em></div></div><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2022/04/1.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="595" height="608"></figure><p>3. Stake your T-tokens using the <a href="https://dashboard.threshold.network/staking">Threshold Dashboard</a>. Click the stake button. You will see a pop-up with staking process details. Just fill in the check-box that you read the requirements, choose an amount of T for staking, and confirm the transaction.</p><div class="kg-card kg-callout-card kg-callout-card-purple"><div class="kg-callout-emoji">💡</div><div class="kg-callout-text"><em>The minimum stake amount is 40,001 T.

The last step to start getting rewards  - bond your stake with a PRE node operator address.</p><p>If you have more then 3,000,000 T you may rent a ready-to-use node from P2P. Contact us via <strong>[email protected]</strong> or telegram <strong>@ztonnis</strong>. We will prepare and send your personal node address. After that, you should <a href="https://stake.nucypher.network/manage/bond">bond this node with your stake</a>.

Lido, Solana P2P to Run Lido on Solana

<p><br>On April 11, P2P took ownership of Lido on Solana becoming the new team in charge of its growth and development, with the goal to build-out the project in alignment with Lido’s, Solana’s and P2P’s values. <br><br>Liquid Solana Staking was launched on Lido in September 2021 with the collaboration of Chorus One as an initiative to grow the presence of Lido across staking networks. Thanks to the members involved, the project has reached 3,000,000+ SOL staked and achieved numerous stSOL integrations.

With it users can earn staking rewards while being able to participate in DeFi protocols at the same time. stSOL can also be exchanged at any time for SOL to let users instantly unstake their tokens without the need to wait for the cooldown. Unstaking directly from Lido is still possible but you are subject to the 3 day cooldown before you get access to your tokens.</p><p>stSOL is a wrapped token, this means that when staking with LIDO your staking rewards accrue to the wrapper and the value of stSOL increases over time. The current exchange rate of stSOL - SOl can be found in the <a href="https://solana.lido.fi/">staking page</a> at all times.</p><p>stSOL can be used in a variety of expanding DeFI protocols across the Solana ecosystem. A list of guides for different protocols can be found <a href="https://help.lido.fi/en/collections/3275637-liquid-staking-on-solana">here</a>. With liquid staking you can earn additional income on your tokens, while still earning staking rewards. For example, you can provide liquidity on a stSOL - SOL trading pair to earn fees from the pool on top of the staking rewards.

Evmos Evmos Network Overview

<p>Evmos is a vital piece in the Cosmos ecosystem as it plans to bring a Cosmos SDK built, PoS blockchain that is compatible with Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) smart contracts.</p><h2 id="current-network-state">Current network state</h2><p>The Cosmos ecosystem, referred to as the internet of blockchains, is a decentralised network of scalable and interoperable blockchains each with an independent governance structure. Interoperability is achieved through inter blockchain communications protocol (IBC) and is the key to simplify the access and interaction of a wide range of blockchain-enabled products and services. The ecosystem has and is still growing at a remarkable rate - attracting an impressive amount of attention in the crypto space. However, it still has some distance to cover in order to catch up with Ethereum in terms of the number and variety of applications it supports. </p><p>Ethereum is massive. It is the 2nd blockchain in terms of market cap and has arguably the largest user base and the most applications of all networks, but such popularity has also led to congestion. The resulting high transaction fees became an issue that could stall the growth of the ecosystem leading to the rise of layer 2 solutions to solve these inherent scalability issues. Ethereum also certainly loses the comparison with the Cosmos ecosystem in terms of interoperability. Nevertheless, the utility of EVM smart contracts and a vast and established community of Solidity developers bring great value to Ethereum.<br><br>Evmos brings together the best of both worlds, enabling developers to utilise the functionality of EVM while enjoying the features of the Cosmos architecture. Evmos serves as the first IBC-compatible EVM-based chain, bringing composability, interoperability, and fast finality to Ethereum. Users will now have all the desired utility and features of Ethereum while benefiting from the fast finality and high-throughput of Tendermint PoS implementation. What's more, Cosmos and Ethereum users will be able to transfer this value amongst and between both ecosystems using IBC and emerging bridge projects.<br><br>The ability to use Ethereum Dapps on alternative blockchains has become a multi-billion dollar feature of web3, positioning Evmos as a potential leader in Cosmos' contribution to the web3 ecosystem.   <br>    </p><h2 id="token-allocation">Token allocation</h2><p>Evmos will have an initial supply of 200 million tokens at launch. The distribution will be amongst <a href="https://evmos.blog/the-evmos-rektdrop-abbe931ba823">Rektrdop participants</a> (50%), strategic reserve (40%) and the community pool (10%). This is a unique feature of Evmos’ token distribution model. This airdrop does not benefit large token holders of other blockchains, nor will there be an early pre-sale which often results in issues for the decentralisation of token holdings. Rektdrop will result in an even distribution of tokens amongst an unusually wide group of community members. That means that the blockchain will be purely community-driven since the to-be-distributed EVMOS is the governance token for its namesake chain.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/Yiue9kUquIz5wBbZnEi6MIv9_tXw4XsSuDMGyLPxdbbonPPR4WEvrAnqM2ySu9-XMUi2ynCCSTwwJBi1daMAhMhlZ66MsuofiQn_GF4JUnrJSk35R5pxz1K4Bg6vZ6gYFO33h1j3" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy"></figure><p>Evmos will start off by being highly inflationary, with 300 million tokens being issued in the first year but dropping every year with the goal of 1 billion tokens being issued after 4 years. It is assumed that after this time, a new inflationary model will be proposed through governance.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/UxlLngsi46FiCKT3eU67QyGjkZBcaK42EyG1EzR_mqQ7sUSoXutind12UOfvtIu0O30aUUHvY1Jemg0MFrS3t4H1VKa_H-Qf_-MYTPbYX4BPhU9KLoFGpqOVWJ52Fv-L1TvAj5C1" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy"></figure><p>Issued tokens will be distributed in the following way:</p><ul><li>40% to staking rewards</li><li>25% to team vesting</li><li>25% to usage incentives</li><li>10% to community pool</li></ul><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/KNFOS_mWwMP41I8bMX45P_SpkEhlIeZvJ36kzgBNqLXCHM8kv3qyiVifJxtpXFUS7-IQ6FR4PhKpbD7JQYmfiPoJ1d5bDujYvDR7PiUAg1wNAqu4yyrbPj9JOCnUJkWGVuifkcWd" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy"></figure><p>The key novelty here is the blockchain’s attitude towards developers. Usually the validators are the sole benefactors of the rewards system. This is not the case with Evmos - this blockchain focuses on building a developer’s community around its main feature (EVM smart contracts compatibility) and claims that developers are equally important for the project, while still acknowledging the role of network operators. This concept is implemented in the form of dApps Store which creates a reward mechanism for developers based on the value and impact of their application.<br>  </p><h2 id="token-utility">Token utility</h2><p>Other than paying for transaction fees on the Evmos network, each EVMOS token will give rights to participate in staking and governance.<br><br><strong>Staking</strong><br>Staking is the mechanism used to secure the network. It is the process of bonding coins/tokens (stake) in order to earn rights to participate in the "validation" of new blocks, and in doing so are compensated with rewards. Token holders can “delegate” their EVMOS tokens rights to Validators. Delegators are incentivised to delegate to a Validator that acts according to the best interests of the network as a whole.<br> <br><strong>Governance</strong><br>Evmos gives token holders the rights to submit and vote on proposals to better the network. Evmos stakers who do not vote will inherit the vote of their validator.<br>   </p><h2 id="staking-evmos">Staking Evmos</h2><p>Validators play a crucial role, with their core responsibilities being validating transaction blocks and ensuring the security of the Evmos network. Validators may also decide to operate oracles, secure bridges, governance and much more. </p><p>Token holders can “delegate” their EVMOS tokens to the validators they wish. Validators will validate blocks of transactions on their behalf, earn rewards proportionally to the represented stake, and the network will redistribute it to their delegators after deducting a fee for the service they provide. Validators will set fees for their services, with a minimum of 5% of staking rewards earned.<br><br>The top 150 validators, based on the amount of EVMOS delegated to them, will be selected to participate in the validation of transaction blocks. </p><p>40% of newly-issued tokens as well as a portion of transaction fees will be allocated to staking rewards and will be redistributed to validators and delegators. Validators can also receive up to a 5% bonus by coordinating between each other to reduce their chances of empty blocks proposals.<br>    </p><h2 id="slashing-risk">Slashing risk</h2><p>Evmos have implemented slashing to incentivise validators to conduct themselves and for delegators to select trustworthy validators. Validators who act in the following ways will see both their self-stake and their delegators’ stake slashed:</p><ul><li><strong>Double-signing:</strong> signing two or more blocks at the same height.</li><li><strong>Downtime: </strong>validator missing a significant amount of blocks.</li><li><strong>Unavailability:</strong> validator that is offline for a significant amount of blocks.</li><li><strong>Poor security:</strong> validator acts in a way where their security is compromised. <br>    </li></ul><h2 id="useful-links">Useful links<br></h2><ul><li><strong>Website:</strong> https://evmos.org/</li><li><strong>Documentation:</strong> https://evmos.dev/</li><li><strong>Guides:</strong> Coming soon</li><li><strong>Twitter:</strong> https://twitter.com/EvmosOrg</li><li><strong>Telegram:</strong> <a href="https://t.me/EvmosOrg">https://t.me/EvmosOrg</a></li></ul><hr><h2 id="about-p2p">About P2P </h2><p><a href="https://p2p.org/">P2P Validator</a> is a world-leading non-custodial staking provider with the best industry practices and proven expertise.

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/">https://cosmos.network/</a><br><strong>White paper: </strong><a href="https://v1.cosmos.network/resources/whitepaper">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">https://p2p.org/cosmos</a><br><strong>Guides: </strong><a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5925248-cosmos-atom-ledger-live-staking-guide">Ledger</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5382165-keplr-ledger-cosmos-atom-staking-guide">Kepler + Ledger</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5382175-imtoken-comos-atom-staking-guide">ImToken</a></p><p>  </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2022/02/image-34.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-34.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-34.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-34.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/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. With its experimental sister chain - Kusama - developed as a testing environment network for Polkadot, as well as its use of treasury, the Polkadot network is also designed around innovation and rapid implementation.<br><br><strong>Website: </strong><a href="https://economy.p2p.org/helping-you-select-the-right-token-to-stake/"><a href="https://polkadot.network/">https://polkadot.network/</a></a><br><strong>Twitter: </strong><a href="https://twitter.com/Polkadot">https://twitter.com/Polkadot</a><br><strong>P2P Staking Page: </strong><a href="https://p2p.org/polkadot">https://p2p.org/polkadot</a><br><strong>Guides: </strong><a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5454305-polkadot-dot-ledger-live-staking-guide">Ledger</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5276295-polkadot-js-ledger-polkadot-dot-staking-guide">Polkadot.js + Ledger</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5454917-polkadot-js-polkadot-dot-staking-guide">Polkadot.js no ledger</a></p><p>   </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2022/02/image-31.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-31.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-31.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-31.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w2400/2022/02/image-31.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Solana is a smart contract platform with a high-performance permissionless blockchain, solving scalability issues suitable for decentralised applications requiring high throughput.

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/">https://tezos.com/</a><br><strong>White Paper: </strong><a href="https://wiki.tezosagora.org/whitepaper">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">https://p2p.org/tezos</a><br><strong>Guides: </strong><a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5448853-trust-wallet-tezos-xtz-staking-guide">Trust Wallet</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5336393-kukai-wallet-tezos-xtz-staking-guide">Kukai Wallet</a></p><p>  </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2022/03/image-1.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2022/03/image-1.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2022/03/image-1.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2022/03/image-1.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/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/">https://www.kava.io/</a><strong><strong>‌</strong></strong><br><strong><strong>‌Twitter: </strong></strong><a href="https://twitter.com/kava_platform">https://twitter.com/kava_platform</a>‌<br>‌<strong><strong>P2P Staking Page: </strong></strong><a href="https://p2p.org/kava">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">Keplr</a></p><p>   </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2022/02/image-37.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-37.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-37.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-37.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/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.

NEAR is designed with security and performance at the core, allowing developers to create applications which manage high-value assets including money, identity and contractual information, whilst at the same time allowing for quick and efficient access. With a focus on providing developers with a clean, user-friendly experience, NEARs approach to development is one focused around accessibility and scaling blockchain applications to accelerate the world’s transition to open, decentralized technologies. The protocol is a public, sharded, developer-friendly, proof-of-stake blockchain, making it an efficient platform due to its scalability and ease of use. NEAR is compatible with Ethereum 1.0 today providing a complete integration with Solidity contracts (without the need for rewrites). Furthermore, an ETH-NEAR bridge allows for cross-chain interoperability and communication. This provides developers with flexibility and removes the need to fully commit to just one tech stack.</p><p><strong>Website: </strong><a href="https://near.org/">https://near.org/</a><strong><br>Twitter: </strong><a href="https://twitter.com/nearprotocol">https://twitter.com/nearprotocol</a><strong><br>Whitepaper: </strong><a href="https://near.org/papers/the-official-near-white-paper/">https://near.org/papers/the-official-near-white-paper/</a><br><strong>P2P Staking Page: </strong><a href="https://p2p.org/near">https://p2p.org/near</a><br><strong>Guide: </strong>​​<a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5439407-near-near-staking-guide">Near Wallet</a></p><p>    </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2022/02/image-44.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-44.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-44.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-44.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w2400/2022/02/image-44.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>The Mina protocol is best described as the world's lightest blockchain. 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/">https://minaprotocol.com/</a><strong><br>Twitter: </strong><a href="https://twitter.com/MinaProtocol">https://twitter.com/MinaProtocol</a><br><strong>P2P Staking Page: </strong><a href="https://p2p.org/mina">https://p2p.org/mina</a><strong><br>Guides: </strong><a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5307251-clorio-mina-mina-staking-guide">Clorio</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5326940-auro-mina-mina-staking-guide">Auro</a>, <a href="https://help.p2p.org/en/articles/5341996-stakingpower-mina-mina-staking-guide">StakingPower</a></p><p>  </p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2022/02/image-47.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="455" srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2022/02/image-47.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2022/02/image-47.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2022/02/image-47.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/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. This is realised by using “Adaptive State Sharding'' which combines three different sharding types, State, Transactions and Network sharding. Elrond also utilises a novel approach to Proof-of-Staking called “Secure Proof of Stake”. This streamlines and optimises a lot of the computational work resulting in better network performance. The Elrond network also supports a native token, eGold, that is used to pay for transaction fees and reward stakers for securing the network.

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.

Persistence provides a SDK toolkit to easily build dapps connected to the main chain. Each dapp runs their own chain but are all secured within the Persistence blockchain. Not only will each dapps easily interact with each other, they will be able to take advantage of Cosmos’ IBC, allowing the transfer of tokens and information to multiple other blockchains outside Cosmos. Its native token is XPRT, a utility token used to pay for fees among the dapps in the Persistence ecosystem. These fees will be placed in a pool and redistributed to XPRT token holders who are staking. If the ecosystem attracts high demand, this could result in significant returns for early XPRT token holders. Additionally, the XPRT token also gives you the right to participate in governance, giving you a say in the direction of the network.

Kusama Kusama Validator Offline Offence - Post Mortem

<h2 id="summary"><strong>Summary</strong></h2><p>One of our Validator nodes went offline at the end of era 3281 until the start of era 3282 as the result of the corruption of a blockchain database that was being used. This led to the inability to produce blocks for <strong>2h:45m.</strong></p><h2 id="what-happened"><strong>What happened</strong></h2><p>A database that we were using to run our validator node crashed. We immediately took action and started deploying a new node using a recent snapshot of our disk. Once fully synced, new keys were generated and signed off before turning the validation service back on. As we created a new validator with the rotation of session keys, we were forced to chill for an additional epoch.</p><h2 id="customer-impact"><strong>Customer Impact</strong></h2><p>Delegators who nominated this validator and had their stake allocated to it will receive lower rewards than it could have potentially earned for 2 epochs.</p><h2 id="what-went-wrong"><strong>What went wrong?</strong></h2><p>Inadequate tools for this particular event. We did not deploy the db from our backups (pruned) because on occasion, we faced issues with our automation running too long. Additionally, we had not recovered the session keys since it’s always a risky option and the situation at hand did not warrant taking such risks.</p><h2 id="what-went-well"><strong>What went well?</strong></h2><p>It was immediately notified that the node stopped producing blocks and the root cause was identified almost instantly. This allowed us to swiftly amend the occurrence, and with the help of fully automated key rotation/verification and signing cycle, we were able to get a fully operational node running in an effective manner.</p><h2 id="lessons-learnt-and-action-plan"><strong>Lessons learnt and action plan</strong></h2><p>Improve our incident handling procedures and find a faultless and rapid fix for these kinds of events.

Near Near Incident - Post Mortem

<h2 id="tldr"><strong>TLDR</strong></h2><p><br>Due to a sudden spike of transactions, mainnet validator node ran out of disk space, leading to inability to produce blocks and corruption of the node state.</p><h2 id="what-happened"><strong>What happened?</strong></h2><p><br>Disk usage grew quite fast and mainnet pool p2p-org.poolv1.near stopped producing blocks since ~07:00 UTC on 16th of January. Epoch ended ~10:00 UTC and by that time the node had surpassed the epochal kick-out threshold for downtime. Therefore, it was scheduled for temporary kick-out for the next two epochs. While resolving the issue, the validator remained offline for the following epoch resulting in one additional forfeit epoch. Overall, the node was offline for ~3,25 epochs and the validator pool lost 4 full epochs of staking rewards.</p><h2 id="what-went-wrong"><strong>What went wrong?</strong></h2><p><br><strong>The potential impact of the issue was underestimated.</strong></p><p>It was expected to rely on a recent state snapshot that would be readily available. We had no cold backup of a recent node state while available backup nodes were subject to the same issue leading to a loss of access to a synced node. In fact, the official public back-up archives were corrupted too. A <a href="https://github.com/near/nearcore/issues/6095">GitHub issue</a> was created afterwards.</p><p><strong>Monitoring was insufficient.</strong></p><p>Near validation infrastructure was undergoing an overhaul, some monitoring facilities were offline. It was expected that the amount of space used on disk would grow more or less linearly. With ~100 GiB of free space it could last for a month. Space clogged up in a matter of days while disk monitoring was not set appropriately to catch the spike and warn in advance.</p><h2 id="what-went-well"><strong>What went well?</strong></h2><p><br>It was immediately notified that node stopped producing blocks and the root cause was identified almost simultaneously. Quite a few validators were affected by the issue, and the community was very helpful.</p><h2 id="impact-on-clients"><strong>Impact on clients</strong></h2><p><br>All our Near delegators were affected and lost four epochs of staking rewards. To compensate our delegators in full and mitigate their loss, P2P waived the fees until the end of February.</p><h2 id="lessons-learned"><strong>Lessons learned</strong></h2><p><br>We should have had better monitoring and collecting disk usage metrics from all nodes at all times including mainnet, backup and Near RPC node. It is important to ensure that back-up nodes are running &amp; synced at all times. In addition, it is important to establish the process of making cold snapshots of the node state on a regular basis and spread this practice to all available networks.</p><p>P2P takes full responsibility for the event that led to the weak performance and we are sorry for the inconvenience. Please be assured that P2P is taking actions to eliminate even a small probability of such an event occurring in future.</p><hr><p><em>If you have any questions feel free to join our</em><a href="https://t.me/P2Pstaking"><em> Telegram chat</em></a><em>, we are always open for communication. </em><br><em>Special thanks to Evgeny Kuzyakov &amp; DenysK for providing a state snapshot and general support.</em></p><hr>

Agoric P2P Validator Joins Agoric as a Node Operator

<p>Agoric is a secure JavaScript smart-contract platform that allows developers to reuse a set of trusted components to build decentralized applications (dApps). Smart-contracts power the new efficient economy that doesn't rely on a third party while all the interactions within the system are fair and transparent. <strong>Critical smart-contract bugs result in million dollar losses for developers and users of dApps.</strong> They are still considered risky and difficult to use.</p><p>Agoric uses an object-capabilities (ocap) security architecture defining constraints on how references to the objects are obtained. It simplifies building an application allowing developers to focus on it's purpose and makes interaction with contracts much safer. <strong>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.</strong></p><p>Another well-known problem is a lack of developers in crypto. Many exciting use cases are still to be invented. 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. <strong>We believe that a composable framework built by Agoric is capable of attracting a significant portion of JavaScript developers into the space.</strong></p><p><em>We are excited to announce that P2P Validator joined Agoric mainnet as a node operator. Agoric vision is fully in line with our mission to make decentralized finance secure, accessible and simple for everyone.</em></p><p>Our team has more than 3 years of experience in validating Tendermint based networks. P2P Validator maintains highly-available nodes, uses advanced alerting and monitoring systems providing 24/7 technical support. <strong>We are early Agoric investors having our own skin in the game.</strong></p><p>Currently Agoric is in phase 0 of mainnet. We have prepared a <a href="https://economy.p2p.org/staking-agoric-with-keplr-wallet/">staking guide</a> to simplify delegation process.

Solana Solana Validators Performance Research, part 1: Downtime Analysis

<p>Welcome to the first article in the series of publications on the Solana validators performance research by P2P Validator. In our opinion, performance of the Solana network validators is one of the most important aspects which determine the network growth and sustainability. Our team has done a deep dive into this topic and we want to share insights gained to benefit the Solana community. </p><p>The research is devoted to the analysis of the two most important metrics reflecting Solana network validators’ performance: downtime duration (node delinquency/unavailability duration) and skip rate (measuring how frequently a node fails to produce a transaction block which is subsequently confirmed by consensus on the network). </p><p>In this article we reveal the first part of the research findings regarding analysis of downtime. You can find <a href="https://www.stakingrewards.com/journal/solana-validators-performance-research-report-part-2-skip-rate-analysis/">Part 2 here</a>, covering block skip rate analysis results. </p><h2 id="table-of-contents">Table of contents</h2><!--kg-card-begin: markdown--><ul> <li><a href="#preface">Preface</a></li> <li><a href="#introduction">Introduction</a></li> <li><a href="#solana-validators-downtime">Solana validators downtime</a></li> <li><a href="#factors-influencing-downtime-duration">Factors influencing downtime duration</a></li> <li><a href="#downtime-data-analysis">Downtime data analysis</a></li> <li><a href="#nodes-downtime-duration-by-epochs">Nodes downtime duration by epochs</a></li> <li><a href="#supermajority-and-superminority-validators-comparison">Supermajority and superminority validators comparison</a></li> <li><a href="#downtime-duration-distribution-for-updates-and-other-causes">Downtime duration distribution for updates and other causes</a></li> <li><a href="#average-update-time-by-solana-software-versions">Average update time by Solana software versions</a></li> <li><a href="#summary">Summary</a></li> <li><a href="#acknowledgements">Acknowledgements</a></li> <li><a href="#disclaimer">Disclaimer</a></li> <li><a href="#sources-of-data">Sources of data</a></li> </ul> <!--kg-card-end: markdown--><h2 id="preface">Preface</h2><p>All data used for analysis in the research were obtained from publicly available sources such as Solana JSON RPC API, Solanabeach API, Validators.app API and are relevant for Mainnet beta epochs №194-236 unless another epoch or time period is explicitly specified.</p><h2 id="introduction">Introduction</h2><p>Solana is a relatively new (went live in March 2020) public high-performance distributed blockchain platform curated by Solana Foundation (non-profit organization headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland) along with professional blockchain developers, organizations and individuals running validator and RPC nodes and DevOps specialists from all over the world who are dedicated to the decentralization, growth, and security of the Solana network.</p><p>Solana is one of blockchains that aims to be fast and scalable, without compromising its security or decentralization. Its theoretical throughput limit of 50k transactions per second (TPS) which is twice more than VISA’s limit, which means it can be used for many real-time applications in various business areas. Solana mainnet has already handled more than 35 billion transactions with current throughput exceeding 2000 TPS (see Figure 1) due to high demand for its capabilities and various use cases including: ultra-fast on-chain payments, token creation and distribution, staking through delegation to network validators, smart-contracts, NFTs issuance and trading. Solana ecosystem also provides many different DeFi services such as decentralized exchange, token swaps, liquidity farming and bridging ensuring cross-chain interoperability with other blockchains.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card kg-card-hascaption"><img src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/VYf4yl-UeoEH2-bfH8v7ACSsiTxl2n6d4TM46f_sAKeOUwW_rRCkSelwlOGzzqb9uTXHyj5YQKAK-Wk3XSZDJZLg5EK94MuogDL1J-DWXv5oW8awbwR-tptoGxwmCvY2LYTYlg3L" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy"><figcaption><em>Figure 1. Solana’s TPS on 27.10.2021 (see <a href="https://explorer.solana.com/">explorer.solana.com</a> for live data).</em></figcaption></figure><p></p><p>There are currently more than 1000 independent validators and 800 RPC nodes (see Figure 2) which comprise a physical layer for above mentioned functionality while making the network highly secure and decentralized. Each validator supports the network's operation by providing <a href="https://docs.solana.com/running-validator/validator-reqs">high-end hardware resources</a> and properly configuring their systems to keep the network running as fast and smooth as possible.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card kg-card-hascaption"><img src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/78LCSkFGLBansse0T67-5AmbeRFdQkV4tnzyPE06EXNouo_Kr28DMAXKOv7DiFUo-7m05j0ntYPc0RbblbubK4aLwMSUfr3jgFb17XdETt55bJar-v6s19xi2HrZsfJCpkTQK0jq" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy"><figcaption><em>Figure 2. Solana validator nodes map (see <a href="https://solanabeach.io/">https://solanabeach.io/</a> for live data).</em></figcaption></figure><p></p><p>Validators receive SOL tokens from stakers, participate in the consensus-based process of transactions validation, get rewards proportional to delegated stake amount and distribute these rewards to stakers (proportionally to staked shares) charging a variable commission. The more stake is delegated to a validator, the more this validator (and its delegators) earns and is more frequently chosen to process new transactions on the ledger and, thus, exposed to greater hardware and network load. Thus, on the one hand, validators are economically motivated to keep their hardware and software running without interruptions, and, on the other, to timely update Solana software and to improve their nodes and network connection as their stake and the Solana network load increase.</p><h1 id="solana-validators-downtime">Solana validators downtime</h1><p>It is normal for a node to be temporarily unavailable/offline sometimes as every technical system needs periodic maintenance and reconfiguration. Typical reasons for server unavailability are usually quite simple such as planned reboot to update host configuration or software, an emergency (power outage), network problems in the data center or at the provider.</p><p>The longer a node is unavailable, the fewer staking rewards and transaction fees it receives. Staking rewards are paid proportionally to node’s vote transactions count which it cannot post if it is offline or functioning incorrectly. Validator  downtime negatively affects its delegates’ rewards, which is why one should consider checking validator recent downtime duration history before delegating to it.</p><p>During periods of downtime an unavailable validator is assigned the “delinquent” status which can be checked using Solana CLI <em>solana validators</em> command or by parsing corresponding json response (<em>solana --output json validators</em>). By constantly fetching statuses of all validators on the network it is possible to measure delinquency periods durations which is a good approximation for downtime duration for further quantitative analysis. The downtime data analyzed is available through the <a href="https://redash.p2p.org/public/dashboards/ZEW9RvuBXPdYHUU5aC7DfVjY8DJaXQrGenG2HUmo?org_slug=default">public Redash dashboard</a>.</p><h2 id="factors-influencing-downtime-duration">Factors influencing downtime duration</h2><p>There are many factors influencing downtime duration and these are typical ones:</p><ul><li>node operator reaction time (node operators may or may not use specialized monitoring and alerting systems);</li><li>node operator skill (imagine the difference between inexperienced enthusiasts and mature professionals who are working with such high-load systems for years);</li><li>time to repair breakdowns in the power grid or communication network (which does not depend on a node operator);</li><li>time needed to debug and fix specific configuration errors or replace hardware parts;</li><li>complexity and duration of software update (i.e., different Solana versions take different time to install), node startup duration, etc.</li></ul><p>Despite most of these factors can not be measured directly, we have managed to collect and analyse some important on-chain data related to the topic, which allowed to quantitatively describe several aspects regarding Solana network nodes unavailability such as downtime duration statistics over time, its variability across nodes as well as duration of node software updates.</p><h2 id="downtime-data-analysis">Downtime data analysis</h2><p>Here we illustrate retrospective downtime statistics of Solana nodes that were active in the period from epoch №209 (5th of August, 2021) to epoch №236 (17th of October, 2021). Historical data allow to reveal trends in the dynamics of downtime making it easier to understand the normal behavior of the metric as well as to identify abnormal fluctuations.</p><h3 id="nodes-downtime-duration-by-epochs">Nodes downtime duration by epochs</h3><p>The descriptive statistics for downtime duration by epochs are presented in the Figure 3 below. Quantile values of 5%- and 95%-level reflect the maximum downtime among the top 5 and top 95 percent of validators, respectively, for each epoch. Average downtime is the simple arithmetic mean and median defines a downtime duration which divides the top 50 and worst 50 percent of validators.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card kg-card-hascaption"><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/aQCsTug3snvF4n1VUW3AXUBYvC6FytRw5Q2ICuSuMsZMr8RGjpyI-ylB6CZK8qU8WR5EKHnBNMPfMBsV6CXTN7UM_sMO3k_QPjq5JhoVDPJW0dEU6FTJUr0skrGCbjcKdpVQAB5m" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy"><figcaption><em>Figure 3. Downtime mean (cyan line), median (lilac), 5%-quantile (red), 95%-quantile (green) and its actual values for each node (black transparent dots) over epochs.</em></figcaption></figure><p><br>As can be seen from the chart above, <strong>typical average downtime duration for a node is around 1.5 hours</strong>, which is quite low, while <strong>median downtime duration is almost always zero</strong> (which means that most nodes usually don’t experience shutdowns). Also there were several epochs (№214, 223 and 234) with high downtime duration upticks mainly due to simultaneous upgrades of Solana software version. Epoch 223 is especially interesting as it is known that on 14 of September, 2021, the Solana network experienced a <a href="https://jumpcrypto.com/reflections-on-the-sept-14-solana-outage/">severe overload which led to the network halt</a>, and after a successful network restart almost all the nodes had to update to a new Solana version with the necessary fixes.</p><h3 id="dispersion-of-downtime-duration">Dispersion of downtime duration</h3><p>As many factors affect downtime duration, it varies greatly across validators within the same epoch. The dispersion measures indicate the metric’s spread magnitude which is slightly changing over time as shown in Figure 4.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card kg-card-hascaption"><img src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/pYyFq6WJf7ZUvigy7YMAFPcT0e9OISiG4_mNYWZLs-N_c7vUrs09jUb9wtgCxgH4OqNIAppwlrjif3vupB0ZWDAtSc2mv8gI8ixFAkvcVVYs859GnOtTiXvGN5SQSDjPA2ql9Hjv" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy"><figcaption><em>Figure 4.

Therefore, it makes sense to compare performance of the superminority set of validators (the minimal set of validators that together control more than 33.33% of the total stake) with the rest falling into the supermajority set with 66.66% of total stake (see Figure 5).</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card kg-card-hascaption"><img src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/pXXTHF4CC5szdub_hF8cYrIu_BpisJxblMbSODq5p4IWU7gdhGI5XXOyDGOLbATya7vLvaH0rDLWXJsLZY_D1OiAD9MpKSRR3ZkrB_oXBSagqZKNeAxlE1dik8nVo9moZvIN3aC6" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy"><figcaption><em>Figure 5.

It should be noted that even if the P2P Validator goes down (or delinquent), on average it happens for an extremely short time of 1.5 minutes.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card kg-card-hascaption"><img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/Ho-gbXZDhA6SyHlPnJxSGrHE2F5x-Cn8HGwX0K30wuoibCH6Ay_Rx1Obq8D4Se3MoUATYUxICIKq-7RuKkZhcct1ARAUruNtCaGi4_1lNBsDEhJYpGS3Fao5osWpA1lV4oeWyYhC" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy"><figcaption><em>Figure 9.

Superminority validators including the P2P Validator demonstrate high consistency in update duration presumably due to specific administration standards developed by professional engineers who operate these validators.</p><h3 id="average-update-time-by-solana-software-versions">Average update time by Solana software versions</h3><p>Different Solana node software versions vary significantly in the complexity and duration of the installation process, which directly affects the downtime duration associated with updates.

Vega VEGA Staking is Now Live at P2P!

<p><br><strong><em>We are excited to share that Vega has now launched the restricted mainnet - you can now stake VEGA and receive rewards! Still in the early phases and backed by top validators, it’s a project that can shake the Defi ecosystem. </em></strong></p><p>Traditional centralised financial markets have left us paralysed. Traders and investors have no choice other than giving full trust to third parties who fix high costs and stifle innovation by controlling what markets and products can be traded. The Vega network works to solve these shortcomings through the use of its permissionless and agnostic proof of stake network, bringing efficient trading of derivative products (comparable to centralised exchanges) to the DeFi ecosystem. Check out Barney Mannerings (founder of VEGA) explain more about VEGA at the Kryptonight London <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhGD8brS3r0&amp;t=125s">here</a>. <br></p><blockquote><em>“The Vega chain will be the Web3's native derivatives layer, bringing fairness, front-running protection and capital efficiency to blockchain. Starting with an Ethereum bridge Vega plans to support assets from all major blockchains.”</em> <br>David Siska - Vega research team @Vega Protocol</blockquote><p>At P2P Validator our team provides exhaustive analysis to support top-tier staking networks. We have been seed investors and early contributors in top networks such as Solana, Cosmos, Tezos among many others and have a flair for selecting striving networks to stake with. We have now added VEGA (their native token) to our list of carefully selected products - both locked and unlocked VEGA can now be staked, giving you the opportunity to earn more! <br></p><blockquote><em>“Most importantly, Vega and P2P share a lot of core values, and we really appreciate Vega’s built-into incentives that empower decentralisation, and fair, transparent distribution of rewards. We also support Vega’s goal of solving fundamental problems for the centralised finance, and share their intent to open the opportunity to create and launch markets to a broad audience.” </em><br>Dmitry Argunov - Vega Product manager @ P2P Validator</blockquote><p>As with most staking services, the earlier phases provide the highest rewards. Vega are placing a fixed amount of VEGA into a treasury for staking rewards that will be distributed among the staked VEGA. Less staked VEGA to distribute it to, the higher the rewards per VEGA staked. As Vega trading volume increases, a percentage of the infrastructure fee - fees that are charged on trades executed on the platform - will be shared for staking rewards. <br><br>While staking VEGA tokens, you will not only be helping secure the network and earn rewards along the way, you can also participate in governance and shape the future of the Vega project. </p><hr><h3 id="useful-vega-resources">Useful VEGA resources</h3><ul><li><strong><strong>Website:</strong></strong> <a href="https://vega.xyz/">vega.xyz</a></li><li><strong><strong>Guides: </strong></strong><a href="https://economy.p2p.org/vega-vega-staking-guide-using-macs/">For Mac</a> or <a href="https://economy.p2p.org/vega-vega-staking-guide-using-windows/">Windows</a> </li><li><strong>What to Expect from Restricted Mainnet: </strong><a href="https://blog.vega.xyz/what-to-expect-from-restricted-mainnet-616086d9fdaf">https://blog.vega.xyz/what-to-expect-from-restricted-mainnet-616086d9fdaf</a></li><li><strong><strong>Whitepaper:</strong></strong> <a href="https://vega.xyz/papers/vega-protocol-whitepaper.pdf">vega.xyz/papers/vega-protocol-whitepaper.pdf</a></li><li><strong><strong>Github:</strong></strong> <a href="https://github.com/vegaprotocol/">github.com/vegaprotocol/</a></li><li><strong><strong>Twitter:</strong></strong> <a href="https://twitter.com/vegaprotocol">twitter.com/vegaprotocol</a></li><li><strong><strong>Discord</strong>: </strong><a href="https://discord.com/invite/3hQyGgZ">https://discord.com/invite/3hQyGgZ</a></li><li><strong><strong>Blog</strong></strong>: <a href="https://blog.vega.xyz/">blog.vega.xyz/</a></li><li><strong><strong>Community:</strong></strong> <a href="https://community.vega.xyz/">community.vega.xyz/</a></li></ul><hr><h3 id="about-p2p-validator">About P2P Validator</h3><p><a href="https://p2p.org/"><em><em>P2P Validator</em></em></a><em><em> is a world-leading <strong><strong>non-custodial staking provider</strong></strong> with the best industry practices and proven expertise.
