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

<p>Existing Cosmos explorers show limited information. In some cases, reward withdrawal happens not only by initiating <code>withdraw</code> transaction and there are unobvious events, which cause that action. We have added these hidden events to <a href="https://p2p.org/?utm_source=blog&amp;utm_medium=economy&amp;utm_campaign=cosmos_dashboard_release#dashboard-block">P2P Dashboard</a>, <strong><strong>implemented full reward history across all Cosmos Hub versions and opened it for community</strong></strong>. Below, I will walk through the topic in detail with examples.</p><h3 id="transparency-limit"><strong>Transparency limit</strong></h3><p>Every transaction that is recorded in non-private blockchain can easily be retrieved for analytical or other purposes providing clarity for end users. With such transparency everyone can get a trusted record of any event since the start of the network. But is it really an easy task for someone without deep knowledge in code and various API endpoints to get all the data they need?</p><p>You may argue that there are multiple explorers built for this purpose but each of them focuses on various goals and doesn’t give a complete picture of all events happening in a particular network. For an ordinary user like me, explorers act as a window in this magic world of blockchains and <strong><strong>our understanding is limited by the events various tools decide to display</strong></strong>.</p><p>Blockchains are still new and complex to understand. The increasing number of projects with a different logic and various triggers is aggravating. Transparency matters especially for financial transfers and events that can be used for accounting purposes. For example, in Proof-Of-Stake blockchains it can be a withdrawal of accumulated rewards.</p><p>A diversity of high-quality explorers is significant for building user commitment to the network and facilitating trust although more tools do not always result in better visibility. Some explorers focus more on usability, which is also very important but it still is not conductive to increasing transparency for users of the network.</p><h3 id="unobvious-events-in-tendermint-blockchains"><strong>Unobvious events in Tendermint blockchains</strong></h3><p>Let's take a look at the reward withdrawal process in Cosmos Hub. Surplus accumulates in a validator pool and can be withdrawn to the corresponding staking address manually. Basically, a delegator withdraws rewards at any point of time to receive them on address. Explorers show this operation with names like GetReward or Withdraw Reward. In fact that's not the only action that triggers reward withdrawal.</p><h4 id="example-27-03-2020-"><strong><strong><strong>Example</strong></strong> (27.03.2020)</strong></h4><p>Let's take a random account and check the information about its balance on<a href="https://www.mintscan.io/account/cosmos1d5lu67hu3lhqtw6zyv7uy4gkfpdtfnzxw0wga8"> Mintscan</a> block explorer.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/1-5.png" class="kg-image" alt srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/1-5.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/1-5.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/1-5.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/1-5.png 1784w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/2-8.png" class="kg-image" alt srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/2-8.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/2-8.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/2-8.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/2-8.png 1799w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>If we calculate total balances using this transaction data we should get:</p><ul><li>Received: <em><em>484,7076 ATOM</em></em></li><li>Delegated: <em><em>474 ATOM</em></em></li><li><em><em>Tx Fees: 0,015 ATOM</em></em></li><li>Available: <strong><strong><em><em>10,692625 ATOM</em></em></strong></strong></li></ul><p>And here are values from<a href="https://www.mintscan.io/account/cosmos1d5lu67hu3lhqtw6zyv7uy4gkfpdtfnzxw0wga8"> Mintscan</a>:</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/3-7.png" class="kg-image" alt srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/3-7.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/3-7.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/3-7.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/3-7.png 1890w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>It is also true for the same address on <a href="https://cosmos.bigdipper.live/account/cosmos1d5lu67hu3lhqtw6zyv7uy4gkfpdtfnzxw0wga8">Forbole</a>:</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/4-4.png" class="kg-image" alt srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/4-4.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/4-4.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/4-4.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/4-4.png 1889w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>We see an additional 0,971002 ATOM on the available balance, but where did they come from if there was no withdraw transaction made by this account?

Let's look into it.</p><p>In fact, the balance is correct. <strong><strong>There are hidden events that trigger reward withdrawal but are not displayed on most explorers</strong></strong>. These tools serve another purpose and these events do not correspond much to the observation of what is happening in general. Nevertheless, these triggers are still crucial for generating full withdrawal history and bringing clarity for delegators.</p><p>There are five core types of actions delegators usually perform:</p><ul><li>Delegate to a validator</li><li>Redelegate to another validator</li><li>Undelegate from a validator</li><li>Withdraw accumulated rewards</li><li>Send available tokens to another address</li></ul><p>The first four of them initiate reward withdrawal, which is usually not displayed for the first three actions by most explorers.</p><p>On <a href="https://p2p.org/dashboard/cosmos1d5lu67hu3lhqtw6zyv7uy4gkfpdtfnzxw0wga8">P2P Dashboard</a> you can check reward withdrawals related to the same address.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/5-4.png" class="kg-image" alt srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/5-4.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/5-4.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/5-4.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/5-4.png 1895w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>In some cases, to apply updates of the network, validators stop producing blocks and upgrade node software.

Staking How to delegate Cosmos Atoms using Lunie wallet

<p>Lunie (previous name “Voyager”) is an official audited web wallet and UI for interacting with the Cosmos Hub. The process of sending, staking and redelegating atoms could be done in a simple and secure way. Lunie will not ask for your private keys or seed phrases. To interact with it you need to have Ledger device. Following this two-step guide will not take more than 5-10 minutes.</p><blockquote><em><em><strong><strong>Note:</strong></strong> If you participated in the fundraiser, you should be in possession of a 12-word mnemonic. When setting up a Ledger wallet, enter the seed phrase to access your digital assets obtained through an ICO. We advise you to connect a new Ledger device, in case of replacing the seed phrase on the working device, all data will be overwritten.</em></em></blockquote><h2 id="step-1-set-up-your-ledger"><strong>Step 1.

Staking Introducing P2P Validator

<p>Hello, world! We are building P2P Validator — the GUI for painless blockchain assets staking across 9+ Proof-Of-Stake networks. We support Tezos XTZ mainnet, Polkadot, Cosmos and IRISnet testnets from the beginning, and ready to take Nucypher, Dfinity and Solana on board.</p><p>Our mission is to positively influence the development of Proof-Of-Stake technology and improve existing networks by mindful alternate proposals while offering token holders to hedge their staking rewards on the other hand.</p><p>Whether you chose to delegate your digital assets to P2P Validator or not, we welcome you to join our social channels, educational hub and use our DApps, all of which will be open-source.</p><p><strong><strong>Public website:</strong></strong> <a href="https://p2p.org/?utm_source=1_post&amp;utm_medium=creds_link&amp;utm_campaign=blog">p2p.org</a></p><p><strong><strong>Medium:</strong></strong> <a href="http://medium.com/p2peconomy">medium.com/p2peconomy</a></p><p><strong><strong>Twitter:</strong></strong> <a href="http://twitter.com/p2pvalidator">twitter.com/p2pvalidator</a></p><p><strong><strong>Telegram:</strong></strong> <a href="http://t.me/p2porg">t.me/p2porg</a></p><p><strong><strong>By choosing a right delegate, supporting crucial network alternating decisions and first of all — by fully accepting and acting in course with decentralized community values and code of conduct, we will definitely achieve Proof-Of-Stake social and algorithmic consensus.</strong></strong></p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/1.jpeg" class="kg-image" alt srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/1.jpeg 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/1.jpeg 1000w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><h3 id="why-delegate-to-us"><strong>Why delegate to us?</strong></h3><p><strong><strong>Simplicity &amp; Effectiveness.</strong></strong> It’s unbelievably easy to stake your assets across different networks with us. Tezos Bakery is already available for XTZ delegation and will be expanded to 9+ networks all within single GUI, as soon as their testnets and then mainnets are launched. As of this writing, we’re moving towards adding an exhaustive cross-network analytics to help you track rewards flow and analyze the value of different stakes.</p><p><strong><strong>Focus on Governance.</strong></strong> PoS implies that the network alternations are voted by its nodes, where the highest stake value determines the power of voice. As a general stakeholder, we offer a smart on-chain governance insight within each ecosystem we are presented, meaning to represent your interests and execute your will whether you don’t have enough time or desire to do so. In other words, we help networks grow in value while increasing the value of your own stake and rewards by stopping unfair and making the right decisions happen.</p><p><strong><strong>360° Security.</strong></strong> All independent third-party auditors are welcome to try and test our infrastructure security.</p><p><strong><strong>Community impact.</strong></strong> We’re keen to become the leading educational hub and informational source for all things Peer-to-Peer and blockchain thus turn our financial experts, developers and analysts to look trendy and share their findings across our blog and social media.</p><h3 id="network-portfolio"><strong>Network portfolio</strong></h3><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/2-20.png" class="kg-image" alt srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/2-20.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/2-20.png 1000w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p><strong><strong>Tezos:</strong></strong> <em><em>mainnet / staking opened [</em></em><a href="http://p2p.org/"><em><em>start earning rewards</em></em></a><em><em>]</em></em></p><p><strong><strong>Cosmos:</strong></strong> <em><em>testnet / staking opened</em></em></p><p><strong><strong>IRISnet:</strong></strong> <em><em>testnet under construction</em></em></p><p><strong><strong>Polkadot:</strong></strong> <em><em>testnet under construction</em></em></p><p><strong><strong>Dfinity:</strong></strong> <em><em>testnet under construction</em></em></p><p><strong><strong>Algorand</strong></strong> <em><em>testnet under construction</em></em></p><p><strong><strong>Solana:</strong></strong> <em><em>testnet under construction</em></em></p><h3 id="become-a-business-partner"><strong>Become a business partner</strong></h3><p>Running and maintaining an infrastructure are headaches.</p><p>P2P Validator is built to simplify staking and take all the node weightlifting to unfold new revenue sources for you.

While you may also know that running a dedicated node in each network results into tremendous headaches and unplanned costs. P2P Validator completely eliminates infrastructural, salary and token costs while makes you forget about time consuming node maintenance at the same time.</p><p><a href="mailto:[email protected]">[Drop offers here]</a></p><h3 id="risks-as-a-staking-as-a-service-provider"><strong>Risks as a Staking-as-a-Service provider</strong></h3><p>We are aware and take on all possible risks associated with the unfair performance of our duties.

Each P2P Validator community member is free to stay anonymous to others as well as hide their financial data, if feeling so, but not necessarily should. Each user is free to bring a crime to an arbitrage or raise suspicions and doubts against service itself or other members of the community. Arbitrage is done ad-hoc to ensure objectivity.</p><p><strong><strong>Transparency.</strong></strong> All our actions and decisions are clearly visible and transparent to our community. We are sharing all financial data on returns, cycles, stake amount and delegation capacity as well as the status of all networks and our project updates.</p><p><strong><strong>Groundbreaking technology.</strong></strong> P2P Validator is dedicated to combine different networks under a single interface for an investor’s the peace of mind and to save hours usually wasted on switching between wallets and staking service providers. We’re planning to further simplify staking by adding open-source DApps and other tools for community needs.</p><p><strong><strong>Benefit.</strong></strong> Staking exists to generate new coins and revenue. Although we do have static 10% fee implemented to all rewards you get from staking operations, we are 100% sure staking creates additional benefit for our users on the first place. Using our expertise, we pick only the most successful networks and execute smart governance to ensure growing value and high returns.</p><p><strong><strong>Smartness.</strong></strong> Perfection comes from experience. As the general stakeholder, we provide deliberated business decisions based on deep financial analysis and understanding. We are more than interested in avoiding overdelegation and helping networks thrive, as we are staking our own assets on our node.</p><h3 id="community-benefit-roadmap"><strong>Community Benefit Roadmap</strong></h3><ol><li>Educate, demonstrate and influence. As we define ourselves as the general opinion leader, we see our purpose in creating an international educational hub for all things Proof-of-Stake. The part of our revenue is spent on maintaining the highest possible level of educational materials: webinars, guidelines, insights and news representation. The success of each community member affects the network and thus our success also depends on it, so we make sure that each community need is fulfilled within P2P Validator ecosystem.</li><li>Support open-source DApp development. Creating robust yet efficient applications is the part of our strategy to benefit the Proof-of-Stake community. We believe in open-source development and values, so expect all the DApp source code available on Github right from the start. Modes, upgrades and enhancements are welcome. Also we’re planning on supporting independent developers and projects to further enrich the ecosystem.</li><li>Spend our revenue for the community building. We will use a significant percentage of our income to construct a strong and intelligent community of users behind P2P Validator. In long-term this will help to further promote P2P economy and Proof-of-Stake as its integral part, diluting the existing community of enthusiasts, foundations, and core developers with fresh members.</li></ol><h3 id="tl-dr-project-origins"><strong>TL;DR: Project origins</strong></h3><p>P2P Validator has been established in 2018 after a few successful projects delivered by the same team of chaincode developers and crypto enthusiasts.
