In Phase I, the total supply of validators is: 30 Genesis Validators, 300 Original Validators
The mint price for each time of validator is: 1E for Genesis Validator, 0.2E for Original Validator
The mint date is the beginning of May.
As a validator, you can gain a large amount of Karat Score based on referrals of Claimers. The more people who have minted a Claimers Pass under your node, the more your Karat Score will rise. This will make you eligible for $KAT airdrops.
What does “validator” mean?
As a validator in Space Odyssey, you are able to invite claimers to verify their socials through your validator’s link. To keep it user-friendly, validators delegate Karat Lab to run the physical nodes and don’t have to do anything besides sharing the verification links.
How do you earn?
There are two main ways that Validators can earn, Upfront and Perpetual.
The upfront earnings happen whenever new claimers sign up through a Validator’s link. THisioncreae the Validator's KAT score. For each new Claimer, 5% of that Claimer’s KAT score is added onto the Validator’s KAT score. The Claimer’s KAT score is based on its the value and age of their wallet. On top of that, users can get ZKsync airdrop by interacting with Karat Space Odyssey.
Validators also get perpetual earnings in the form of sharing in future proceeds from data sales. Whenever there is a data request for any of the verified data that falls under the validator, the data request initiator’s KAT payment will be split between the individual data owner and the validator.
What is my expected return as a Validator?
If a Validator has over 100 claimers, that Validator is expected to receive a KAT token airdrop worth more than $1000 USD. That number is subject to change based on the KAT score of their Claimers.
If each Claimer’s data get requested at least once a month, the Validator is expected to receive over $200 per month passively afterward.
