The IRISnet is a public blockchain built using the Cosmos Network SDK. The main objective of the IRISnet, with its project the IRIShub, is to become an infrastructure layer for end-user applications or services, referred to as iServices, with a strong focus on enabling communications across private and consortium chains, public chains and even legacy systems via the IBC (Inter Blockchain Communication) protocol. 

One unique advantage of establishing their service infrastructure on top of Cosmos is the potential for iServices to be deployed once and invoked on every chain/zone connected to the IRIS Network and Cosmos, creating a functional decentralized marketplace across the internet of blockchains.

Most use cases brought up by the Foundation focus on the exchange of private data and e-commerce between consortium chains and private chains. For example, healthcare data could be easily exchanged privately between an insurance consortium and a chain composed solely of hospitals so that better measures and pricing can be established for patients. 

Other examples: 

  • Distributed AI for privacy preserving data analysis
  • Data and analytics marketplace 
  • Distributed e-commerce
  • Combining public chains & consortium chains

Frequently Asked Questions

What are my staking risks?

In IRIS, both the validator’s self-bond and the token holder’s bond are at risk of slashing. 

There are three ways in which a validator can get slashed:

  • If a validator is offline and does not sign for about 27.78 hours. The total bond will be slashed by 0.5% and the validator will be removed from the set for 2 days. 
  • If a validator double-signs. The total bond will be slashed by 1% and the validator will be removed from the set for 5 days
  • If a validator intentionally includes an illegal transaction in the block. The total bond will be slashed by 2% 

Those conditions are hard-coded and do not vary with network usage. 

Figment provides a 100% reward guarantee for missed rewards.  You are still subject to potential slashing.

What is the asset that the node receives as a reward?

The IRIS token.

What is the calculation for each type of reward?

The initial total supply of IRIS is 2,000,000,000 and the annual inflation rate for the first year is 4% (can be modified via on-chain governance), representing 80,000,000 IRIS minted in the first year. As on-chain activity is marginal right now, we assume that the totality of rewards are generated via inflation. 

Example: 

There are currently about 556,000,000 IRIS staked across the network representing a staking participation of 27.8%. Let’s assume that a validator has 5% of all voting power, the node has 27,800,000 IRIS and decides to charge a 10% commission fee. 

Validator’s return: 

  • Tokens minted by the node: (27,800,000 / 556,000,000) * 80,000,000 = 4,000,000 IRIS
  • Commission fee: 0.1 * 4,000,000 = 400,000 IRIS 
  • Income for delegators: 4,000,000 – 400,000 = 3,600,000 IRIS 
  • Delegators’ return in first year: 3,600,000 / 27,800,000 = 12.95% 

The more tokens are staked across the network, the lesser the

How are rewards disbursed?

You need to withdraw their rewards from the protocol and then decide to delegate if you wish to compound rewards.

Figment is never in control of the rewards.

What is IRISnet staking process?

In BPoS, token holders can delegate, or bond, their tokens to a validator that is part of the validating set. Earned rewards depend on current network inflation, network fees and the validator’s commission rate. 

Rewards managed in-protocol and can be withdrawn at any time by delegators. There is currently no compounding feature, so delegators have to delegate rewards as often as possible to maximize earnings. 

 

When did IRISnet launch?

March 2019

Do I maintain custody and control of my IRIS when staking?

You maintain custody of your IRIS at all times.

Your IRIS tokens stay in your wallet and you can change your delegation at any time.

All IRIS token transfers, including rewards, are processed within the IRISnet protocol.  Figment never has custody of your tokens or rewards.

There is a 21-day unbonding period to transfer your tokens after staking.  During the unbonding period, your IRIS are illiquid and may still be subject to slashing.
