The Protocol
There are two types of nodes that comprise the network: Servers and Validators. The Validators are tasked with “validating” the performance of the Servers, prompting them for information and assessing them according to their responses. These assessments are then relayed to the network blockchain, Nakamoto, where currency is distributed. Servers are tasked with optimizing their responses so that they can compete with other Servers in the system for positive assessments, and therefore currency.
Each validation process begins when a Validator locates a Server in the network and sends its input in the form of tokenized text, also referred to as tokens. The Servers will then respond with logits, which represent their best attempt at next token prediction (NTP). The Validator will then score each Server according to their response, using a series of information-based processes and game theoretic strategies. Essentially, since the main task of the network is NTP, Validators, who have the data on hand that they are serving, already have the “answer” needed to properly assess responses from Servers, who are, in short, offering their best "guess".
