CUDOS Slashing: A Mechanism to Maintain Blockchain Integrity

  1. Downtown- Validator nodes are expected to run and maintain about 99.99% uptime. Where a node is down and misses about 95% of blocks or the last 10,000 blocks, the staked tokens will be slashed by 0.01%.
  2. No Show in Governance- Validators are like owners of the chain who take decisions regarding the health and direction of the chain in the long run. They are the governors of the chain and if a validator constantly fails to participate in governance decisions, they could be punished and their tokens slashed.
