In this guide we will walk you through the bonding and nomination process in Edgeware.

Edgeware is a high-performance, self-upgrading WASM smart contract platform, in the Polkadot ecosystem.

You will need to create two accounts in order to complete this process; a stash and a controller account. Also, you should make sure you have a tiny amount of EDG in your controller account and the EDG you are willing to stake on your stash account.

To make it simple; the stash account is the one holding your funds while the controller account will be responsible to act on behalf of…

Qu’est ce que Kusama ?

Kusama est le réseaux canari de Polkadot. Ce nom à été choisi en référence aux canaris utilisés auparavant dans les mines de charbon, et qui avait pour rôle de détecter le monoxyde de carbone ainsi que tout autre gaz nocif pouvant affecter les mineurs. De la même manière, Kusama joue le rôle de canari, en aidant à détecter de possible vulnérabilités dans le code source de Polkadot.

Kusama est basé sur le même code source que Polkadot. C’est cependant une version récente, non auditée et non raffinée. Kusama est plus qu’un réseau de test, puisqu’il est destiné à être un…

What is Kusama ?

Kusama is Polkadot’s canary Network. The name canary comes from the idea of canaries that were used in coal mines to give warning to miners by detecting carbon monoxide and other toxic gases that could hurt them. Similarly, Kusama acts as a canary by warning and helping detect any kind of vulnerabilities or weaknesses in the polkadot code base.

Kusama is based on the same code as polkadot, however it’s a very early unaudited release. Kusama is more than just a testnet because it’s intended to be a test bed for new features as more of them get implemented in…

A consensus mechanism is a mechanism that ensures to achieve the necessary agreement on the state of the network over distributed processes or multi-agent network. Nodes that form the network have to come to an agreement in order to move forward and build the state of the blockchain. In other words, consensus is about how to create blocks and how to agree on what is the correct set of blocks.

Hybrid consensus

Polkadot uses a hybrid consensus which consists of BABE (Blind Assignment for Blockchain Extension) and GRANDPA(GHOST-based Recursive ANcestor Deriving Prefix Agreement)

In short BABE is responsible for producing blocks and…

Kusama est une version récente, non auditée et non raffinée de Polkadot. Il servira de terrain d’essai pour permettre aux équipes et aux développeurs de créer et de déployer des parachains ou d’essayer les fonctionnalités de gouvernance, staking, nomination et de validation de Polkadot dans un environnement réel. Kusama est un réseau canari permettant aux développeurs de mener des expériences dans un environnement similaire à celui de Polkadot.

Kusama is an experimental community focused research and development network of Polkadot. Kusama is willing to be aligned with the existing DOT holders and community. For this reason anyone who has participated in the DOT sale and has received DOT indicator token is entitled to an equivalent amount of KSM on the Kusama network. You can refer to the following guide in order to claim your KSM tokens.

Kusama validators’ role is to secure the network by running validators nodes. There are actually 50 validators running to secure the network. They will be extended to 100 validators as soon as…
