What is Obol Network

Obol is focused on scaling consensus by providing permissionless access to Distributed Validators (DV's). We believe that distributed validators will and should make up a large portion of mainnet validator configurations. In preparation for the first wave of adoption, the network currently utilizes a middleware implementation of Distributed Validator Technology (DVT), to enable the operation of distributed validator clusters that can preserve validators current client and remote signing infrastructure.

The Obol Network consists of four core public goods:

  • The Distributed Validator Launchpad, a CLI tool and dApp for bootstrapping Distributed Validators
  • Charon, a middleware client that enables validators to run in a fault-tolerant, distributed manner
  • Obol Managers, a set of solidity smart contracts for the formation of Distributed Validators
  • Obol Testnets, a set of on-going public incentivised testnets that enable any sized operator to test their deployment before serving for the mainnet Obol Network

Obol Network Roadmap

  • Enable a group of distinct machines to validate thogeder.
  • Basic form of DKG can be completed
Athena Public Testnet
  • Engage Obol Community
  • Facilitateself-service deployment of nodes
Bia Attack Net
  • Break charon in multiple ways
  • Improve DoS resistance
Public Testnet 2 & Red/Blue Net
  • Distributed Validator returns competetive
  • Run an unreasonably large percentage of a test network to see the network perfomance at scale if a majority of validators moved to DV architectures
  • Charon nodes cannot be Dos'd
  • Demonstrate that fault tolerant validation is real, safe and cost competetive
  • Charon V2 will introduce perfomance reward into clusters
  • Any issues amongst participants in a cluster must be sorted outside of the core protocol. For this reason, all operators in a cluster should be know to one another
