How To Get Started

Uncovering the answers to your questions.

Rocket Digital hosts a validator for staking your AZERO tokens on the Aleph Zero mainnet. You can see the live status of our validator on our website.

If you have less than 2000 AZERO you can join our pool:

#34 ROCKET POOL

Currently, there are two ways of staking on Aleph Zero:

Direct nomination:

You need a minimum stake (2000 AZERO). You have full control of who you nominate and are free to change your nominations without going through the unbonding period (14 days). Your rewards will be paid to you automatically every day after the ERA change.

Pooled nomination:

You join our “staking pool” that unites a group of stakers. The good things are that you can stake as little as 10 AZERO this way. However, the downside is, that the only way to auto-compound is to claim rewards manually and add to the pool from time to time.

It is important to remember that both staking methods are equally safe, and you are never losing custody of your tokens, only “delegating” them to our validator (we cannot claim them).

Aleph Zero (AZERO) is an enterprise-ready, privacy-focused, proof-of-stake (PoS) layer-1 public blockchain. It’s built with the Substrate stack — an open-source technology kit that enables projects to develop customized blockchains. Blockchain infrastructure company Parity Technologies is behind Substrate.

Aleph Zero seeks to solve the speed, scalability, validation time, and security issues that current blockchains face. The blockchain also uses a novel, peer-reviewed Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) consensus protocol. AZERO is its native cryptocurrency. 

The Aleph Zero Foundation released the first version of its mainnet on Nov. 10, 2021. Prior to this, the founding team began bootstrapping the project in early 2018. They concluded a seed round in 2020 and a public sale earlier in 2021.

Aleph Zero’s two main components are a proof-of-stake AlephBFT consensus mechanism and a Directed Auxiliary Graph (DAG) auxiliary structure. Let’s take a look at how they work.

Proof-of-stake (PoS)

Aleph Zero merges PoS and DAG. In the PoS consensus mechanism, a rotating committee of validators is responsible for validating transactions and securing the network. Similar to other PoS blockchains, Aleph Zero validators stake AZERO for a chance to validate transactions and add them to the blockchain.

Aleph Zero implements a rotating committee of validators, giving more people a chance to participate in the validation process. Elections make the rotation mechanism possible. Hence, validators change, but their number remains the same. Validators not currently residing in the committee also receive rewards for their support and work.

Directed Acyclic Graph

The DAG in Aleph Zero is an auxiliary structure that gathers information on transactions. It acts as an intermediary data structure in reaching the consensus and, therefore, in building the blockchain.

DAGs are generally used in computer science but have made their way into the blockchain space. Blockchain networks are using them to boost transaction throughput and lower transaction fees.

Aleph Zero is an innovative blockchain that offers features beneficial to both individuals and enterprises. Here are the advantages it provides:

  • Low transaction costs: On average, transactions on the Aleph Zero network will cost about $0.0003.
  • Highly decentralized: Aleph Zero claims it will be the first decentralized DAG-based platform. The project is boosting its level of decentralization through a mechanism of rotating its committee of validators.
  • Fast transaction speeds: Aleph Zero’s AlephBFT processed 89,600 transactions per second in a lab test. It achieved a validation time of 416 milliseconds. The project is yet to determine how the network will perform in the real world, especially under heavy user traffic. However, this lab test is encouraging. The possible high transaction speed makes Aleph Zero a suitable blockchain contender for enterprises.
  • Privacy for enterprises: Aleph Zero helps enterprises keep their transactions and smart contract computations private while enjoying the speed and security of a public blockchain.
  • Large developer team: Aleph Zero has a large team of around 25 developers working on the project. This signals that the network is in a position to continue innovating and improving, thereby attracting more users.
