The interoperable open metaverse is fueled by The Root Network community where anyone can run a node or stake ROOT to participate.

The network is powered by industry leading proof-of-stake consensus with validators selected to forge new blocks based on their respective stake in the ecosystem.

This energy efficient form of network security combines high performance with low impact on the planet. The network’s native token, ROOT, serves as collateral for those who want to participate in creating new blocks.

Forms of block rewards

10% of the ROOT tokens will be distributed to validators and stakers over the first 5 years as an initial bootstrap pool.
GAS spent in the network is distributed to block producers (validators).
Validators who stake ROOT will earn rewards from various network runtime activities. Including:
NFT trading fees from the Non-Fungible Asset runtime.
Trading fees for the DEX and the GAS Fee Exchange.
Trading fees for the DEX and the GAS Fee Exchange.

XRPL Integration

IN PRODUCTION
Leverage XRP in smart contracts on The Root Network.
We have a bridge from XRPL to The Root Network so XRPL users can use XRP or other tokens on XRPL on The Root Network. The Root Networks default GAS token and block rewards token is XRP. The XLS 20 NFT standard is implemented in The Root Network for compatibility with XRPL and ported the XLS 20 standard to the EVM.

On Chain Governance

The Root Network has a unique any-token economy designed to simplify user onboarding and optimize the gas fee economy for both users and validators.

The Root Network's any-token economy is a unique and innovative approach to optimizing both gas fees and user onboarding. The system enables users to onboard using the native token of an application or developers to delegate and pay fees on behalf of users. The Root network automatically converts any token configured to the default gas token on the users behalf.

This flexibility enables users to onboard without having to understand the underlying network economy or interact with exchanges.

The Root Network separates the staking token from the gas token. This system solves the challenges posed by high or volatile network fees and the issue of insufficient liquidity to incentivize node operators.

identity Protocol

IN PRODUCTION
Create, own and manage your own digital identity using The Root Network.
Our native identity protocol allows user to establish a persistent and secure digital identity that can be used across multiple metaverse applications and experiences.

Smart Wallet protocol

IN PRODUCTION
Create simple and safe user experiences for digital assets.
Our smart wallet enables familiar web2 experiences within open metaverse applications. User-owned on chain addresses, account abstraction and delegated payments allows users to manage their identity and assets through a single account, rather than having to manage multiple addresses and keys for different assets or applications across experiences.

Cross-Chain Data +

Context

Currently assets are quite linear, they have one metadata file that describes what it is and there is no way of creating connections between assets in an interoperable way. The Asset Register allows the creation of relationships between assets enabling us to create richer applications while still adhering to web3 design principals such as:

  • Consistency
  • Data transparency

The Asset Register platform is split into three pieces, the Asset Register Core, the Asset Register API and the Schema Management system that sits on top for validation and the main enabler of interoperability.

A good understanding of blockchain technology will help you comprehend how it works.

Asset Register Core

The Core enables a blockchain like transaction experience but with performance afforded by not requiring network consensus. A user is able to build relationships between assets using Asset Linking which are explicitly created and deleted via a signed Asset Register Transaction. Transactions can succeed or fail and will emit an events accordingly. We have built infrastructure to query transactions and a block explorer could effectively be built on top of this data.

Why transactions? Good question!

  • Users need to make decisions which can be authenticated by their identity.
  • Actions also need to be changed together in a logical order to ensure the changes to state are consistent.

Those are the same reasons blockchains are so good at what they do, every single state change is chained together in a consistent fashion. So why reinvent the wheel? All our users already have wallets, so lets leverage that, and yes delegated signing is also something we have thought about.

No consensus...how do I trust it? Unlike a regular blockchain (with consensus), which allows you to create assets that have a value attached to it, the Asset Register is not burdened by such a task. It does not manipulate ownership of assets, instead it relies on on-chain activities for this. Since there is no direct value attached to the links created by the Asset Register there is no requirement for high trust when handling a user's assets. Applications may put value in the asset links, however, a risk evaluation must be done based on the use of a centralised product, which we typically do with web2 services.

Asset Register API

The Asset Register API is used to interact with the Asset Register Core and the Schema Management system. The API is utilized by users to submit transactions to the Asset Register Core, query transaction results and most importantly view the Asset Tree. Schema creation and registration also occurs via this service, therefore, admin level interactions by asset creators occur here.

Schema Management

Schemas merely describe data. We aren't doing anything special here. There is also no requirement to use our Schema Management service, you can host your own schemas anywhere you like.

Our schema management system is built to create an easy on-boarding experience for asset creators. They are built using TTL (pronounced 'turtle') files and implement the SHACL shape schema to describe assets and their relationships.

The system handles hosting of schemas on a domain under the relevant namespaces. Asset Creators can create schemas to describe the assets and the Schema Management system will stitch together multiple schemas on the same namespace. This will be used by people and machines to validate data outputted by systems.

What can it do?

  • Create Asset Linking between assets that are either On-Chain Assets or Off Chain Assets
  • Generate an Asset Tree describing the links
  • Emit events based on changes on the Asset Register
  • Applications can subscribe to changes on the Asset Register
