Zeus Node

The verification process within the Zeus Network operates on a decentralized and permissionless group model, distinct from a federated notary system.

To become a verifier, individuals are required to run a node, a necessity for maintaining a private key and signing functions. Additionally, the process involves staking SOL or LST-SOL, with a preference for LST to enable stakers to contribute to both Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus and the Two-Way Peg (2WP) mechanism. Stakers are further required to register on the Verifier Registry Program. The security framework relies on an over-collateralized design, and potential vulnerabilities are addressed through financial slashing measures, enhancing the robustness and resilience of the verification system.

The Zeus Node system comprises several integral components, including off-chain services such as Peer-to-Peer, Broadcast, Signing (featuring Signature Aggregation), and the dual-function Registry Service, operational both on-chain and off-chain.

To enhance the extensibility of the system, potential modifications involve implementing alternative signature algorithms, integrating broadcast service adapters to support diverse chains like Bitcoin Layer 2, EVM, MoveVM, among others, and developing on-chain registry programs or smart contracts using various programming languages such as Solidity, Move, and more.

With this multifaceted approach, adaptability and interoperability ensure, enabling the system to evolve and integrate with diverse blockchain ecosystems.
