Users must use testnet points as collateral against their votes and submissions
The testnet point balance in a user's wallet in the dApp reflects the number of testnet points they have staked. Users use a portion of their staked testnet points as collateral against new votes and submissions.
Staking limits a user's ability to contribute a significant number of erroneous submissions or votes to the protocol. In order to submit or vote, a user's staked testnet points balance must be greater than the sum of that user's testnet points collateralized against pending votes and submissions.
The number of testnet points required as collateral against a vote or submission will be equivalent to the maximum testnet points that could be slashed due to that vote or submission.
- When a vote agrees with consensus / a triple is accepted, the vote caster / triple submitter is returned the testnet points collateralized against that vote / submission and receives an additional reward
- When a vote disagrees with consensus / a triple is rejected, the vote caster / triple submitter loses the testnet points they collateralized against that vote / submission
You will not be able to contribute new votes or submissions if:
- Your staked testnet point balance is 0
- Your entire staked testnet point balance is collateralized
