Introduction to Ante
ABC: Ante = Blockchain Commitments
Ante is a decentralized protocol to translate implicit trust assumptions like "protocol X is solvent" or "team Y won't rug" into explicit on-chain commitments (Ante Tests) that anyone can verify in real time. Staking tests gives them credibility and payouts happen trustlessly if the tests fail.
These new trust-signaling primitives form the potential building blocks for a decentralized trust ratings system that could make the space safer for builders and users alike.
