Understanding the Structure of Mintlayer

Mintlayer has a unique architecture that is anchored to Bitcoin. Every block in the Mintlayer blockchain has a reference to a Bitcoin block. Participants are selected among the stakers in each Mintlayer round, which lasts for 1008 Bitcoin blocks, to collaborate on creating the chain’s blocks.

To actively participate in the network consensus, a user must run a node and stake enough ML tokens to pass a minimum threshold. The algorithm will then enforce an automatic election. Here, users may be chosen as a participant, with higher token stakes increasing the chances of selection.

The selection mechanism utilizes hashes of the Bitcoin blocks as a randomization source to ensure an unbiased selection of participants and establish a random order for creating and validating blocks. During each round, at a specific time, each participant is requested to build and propagate a block, with all transaction fees collected. The long-term security of the Mintlayer chain is guaranteed by a checkpoint system on the Bitcoin blockchain. This system ensures that the Mintlayer chain remains secure and reliable for users.

The ML token is the native token for the Mintlayer ecosystem. The primary purpose of the ML token is to facilitate the Mintlayer Dynamic Slot Allotment Mechanism, whereby blocksigners verify the blocks created by signing them, and alternate in creating new blocks based on a selection algorithm.

The group of blocksigners is dynamic, and participating in the auction requires staking ML tokens. Anyone can apply for the blocksigner role by staking enough ML tokens. For reference, 40,000 tokens are equivalent to 0.01% of the initial total token supply). To promote community participation, the ML token holders can also express their opinions on the network’s development. Users can help prioritize roadmap events, suggest features, and more. Additionally, the ML token can be used to pay network fees and token issuance fees when creating tokens on Mintlayer.
