According to confirmed observations, the project is developed and run by a large number of technology enthusiasts from around the world who are devoted followers of Satoshi Nakamoto (the man or woman who created Bitcoin) and adhere to Satoshi’s philosophy, leading them to choose anonymity.
The ongoing operations on Satoshi Core Mining are solely an airdrop, designed to give participants the chance to obtain $CORE fairly and without a lot of stress or effort. and is expected to expire in December 2022, allowing for the full completion of the actual mining operations.
A maximum of 2.1 billion CORE will be available, of which 525,600,000 will be airdropped via the app’s ongoing activities. The remaining 1,574,400,000 will then be made available for the Decentralized Node Mining for an 81-year period.
Node-based mining of Satoshi Core will begin in quarter three of 2022 (i.e., following Mainnet activation) and continue in parallel with active app mining until December 12th, 2022, when app processes will be terminated and node mining of Core will no longer be an option.
Node Mining on Satoshi CORE
The following node operations are used to mine more bitcoins: validators, delegators, verifiers, relayers, and miners.
On the Satoshi Core network, validators are in charge of creating blocks and approving transactions. According to the validator election procedures, being a validator entails registering with the network and putting up a deposit of around 10,000 CORE. Everybody may deposit to be included into the validator set per the rules of the validator election. Anyone can deposit and become a validator on Core, and the locked CORE are refundable.
The process by which the top 21 validators are chosen to be a part of the validator set is known as the validator election. Each round, validators are chosen based on their hybrid score. The “live” validators are updated every 200 blocks during the round to increase TPS stability and prevent other validators from having to wait for “jailed” validators the entire time.
Delegators are current core holders who want to take part in the staking process by giving a validator their $CORE in exchange for incentives. Any moment they choose, they can stop delegating.
The transmission of BTC block headers to the Core chain is entirely the responsibility of relayers. A potential relayer must sign up with the network and secure a refundable CORE deposit in order to relay. On Core, anyone can deposit and sign up as a relayer.
The responsibility for reporting harmful activity on the network falls to the verifiers. In the Core network, verifiers can be anyone. Successful verification flags may lead to the reduction of awards or stakes or the imprisonment of dishonest validators.
