• What is a Multichain Validator?
A validator is a virtual entity that participates in the consensus of the Exohood's protocol. Validators are represented by a balance, public key (wallet address), and other properties. A single validator can hold many key pairs, controlling many validators.
  • Why do I need to have funds at stake?

A validator has the ability to propose and attest to rules for the bridge. To prevent dishonest behavior, users must have their funds at stake. This allows the protocol to penalize malicious activity. Staking is a means to keep you safely honest, as your actions will have financial consequences.
