Trust Models


The current subnet implementation uses a federated system of miners. This federation is fully trusted, but future work on the subnet feature will explore alternative trust models.

In this fully-trusted federation model:

  • The federation is responsible for issuing subnet blocks.
  • Users can validate these blocks, but the subnet's federation still controls the blocks.
  • A majority of the federation must sign each block.
  • Federation signatures are validated on the L1 chain.
