How Ante works
The core pieces of the Ante protocol are:
- Ante Tests = on-chain logic that verifies some condition is true/false
- Ante Pools = 2-sided capital pools that people stake or challenge assets in, whose payout is determined by the result of the Ante Test
Pools can be staked or challenged.
Challengers pay decay fees to stakers and test authors over time if the test continues to pass, but can claim staker funds as a reward if the test fails.
Pool activity reveals community trust in the tested conditions and can be used to impute a decentralized trust score.
