The Problem

Decentralized trust and security are fragmented in blockchain networks.

In Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain systems, tokens are staked as collateral to secure the network of decentralized applications (DApps). However, this leaves a burgeoning category of off-chain service providers without the inherent crypto-economic security of PoS networks.

Staked tokens do not provide security for the market of decentralized services.

Decentralized services such as bridges, oracles, app chains, PCs, sequencers, etc, are providing critical facilities for DApps to function, yet are left alone to bootstrap their own security.

Developers must create their own decentralized trust networks from scratch.

The process of bootstrapping decentralized trust from scratch usually involves designing a staking token, building liquidity, attracting investors, recruiting validators, and gaining market adoption.

The current restaking market is centralized on a single platform.

An open market for decentralized trust and security should itself be decentralized and not concentrated on any single platform, chain or token.
