Become a Miner

Spare capacity?
Be part of the network.

If you are a miner or have spare computational power, DADI is a great application of your resource, delivering real world services for individuals, businesses and governments, whilst delivering income for you.

There are three types of Miner in DADI: Hosts, Gateways and Stargates.

Stargates

Provide domain routing and negotiate rates with Consumers

Stargates provide vital functions in the network in the form of domain name mapping and Consumer-DADI contract negotiation. They are rewarded with a percentage of all Consumer fees.

Stargates announce themselves by fully committing a very large volume of DADI tokens – a buy-in system that ensures a high level of capacity and consistency across the network.

Stargates are intended for very high bandwidth environments, such as data center owners/operators. Their initial deployment will be handled directly by DADI, who will install Stargates in key regions ahead of the network launch.

Application for status as a Stargate is manual, but like Gateways, Stargates are assessed under the reputation system, which grades and prefers nodes based on performance.

Gateways

Act as network aggregation points for Host capacity and negotiate rates with Hosts

DADI Gateways - network node owners who contribute bandwidth - are incentivized for their participation in the network. Gateways handle network negotiation and provide edge caching for Host-processed content. Gateways are rewarded with a percentage of the fees from all of the Hosts connected to them, with rewards provided in the form of DADI tokens.

The availability of Gateways is managed through a proof of bandwidth system that periodically reports activity against specific service contracts and Host connectivity, updating a reputation system that is used to favour the most performant Gateways.

Gateways announce themselves to the network by time locking a large volume of DADI tokens (an order of magnitude larger than that required of Hosts). As with Hosts, this feeds the reputation system and helps to mitigate the risk of Sybil attacks.

If you have high bandwidth availability, DADI can become a significant profit center for your business.

Hosts

Provide processing power for multiple Consumer app bundles

DADI Hosts - network node owners who contribute computational power - are incentivized for their participation in the network. You can think of Hosts as miners, with rewards provided in the form of DADI tokens.

The availability of Host resources is managed through a proof of work system that periodically reports activity against specific service contracts, updating a reputation system that is used to favour the most performant Hosts.

Hosts announce themselves to the network by time locking a small volume of DADI tokens. This also feeds the reputation system and helps to mitigate the risk of Sybil attacks, as valuable locks are not trivial to create.
