Free TON Rust Cup

This contest is dedicated to the memory of the designer of the greatest sport car of all times — Hans Mezger.

“it will never have enough power until I can spin the wheels at the end of the straightaway in high gear.”

                                       — Mark Donohue to Hans Mezger

About the Race

The Rust Race is endurance validator race competition. Validators will compete for a period of 1 month from 1 of February till 28 February (for a total of 37 cycles) for the Rust Cup.

During the competition many improvements and protocol changes will be tested and there will be an attempt to break the world record for Layer 1 blockchain protocols throughput in real network conditions.

Race Rules

The participating validators (racers) will have to endure possible network restarts, node failures, bugs, changes in the protocol and other unfriendly conditions. Any network or software issues are part of the competition.

The Rust Cup will be held on Rustnet which will run new Elector Contract supporting slashing.

At the beginning of the competition all racers will receive exactly the same Lock stake into DePool contract they have to run. The winners will be determined by the amount of Locked Validator stake + rewards from that stake in that DePool at the end of the Race.

The minimum stake in all Rust Cup DePools should be set to 1 mln tokens, to avoid an outsider to put stakes into racer’s DePool.

If the Race will have to be stopped (red flag), the same starting amount of tokens will be redistributed to the racers and the final result will be calculated by adding all balances before all restarts plus the end balance.

An attempt to replenish the validator stake by any tokens outside of Lock stake and validator rewards will disqualify the participant from the Race.

The Prizes

Rust Cup prizes are separated into three types of rewards: minimum lock stake, investor reward incentive and validator referral reward incentive.

Number of winners: up to 200

Lock stake: the winners will receive a 2 years lock stake into their DePool contracts on the Free TON main net, with amounts starting at 500,000 for the 1 place decreasing to the 100,000 for the last place.

On top of that and for the period of 4 years the Winners of Rust Cup will receive a special subsidy for each TON token invested into their DePool.

The subsidy has two parts: the investor incentive and the validator incentive. Both are calculated as percentage of the investor stake and depends on the duration of the stake.

In order to receive incentive the Investor Stake should be Locked into Rust Cup Winner DePool for a specific period of time. The Lock stake mechanism in DePool has been updated to include the possibility to Lock tokens to the sender address. The incentive is growing depending on the Lock stake duration as per the table below.

The incentive will be calculated automatically by a smart contract and sent to the Rust Cup Winner DePool as Vesting stake with the Investor and Validator addresses as beneficiaries. The vesting will release portions of incentive to both the investor and validator each election cycle. The validator may be required to provide a separate address for each new investor stake to enable vesting.

The Incentive program will run for all stakes invested into Rust Cup DePools within 6 months from the program start (after calculating the Rust Cup results, that is).

Special Prizes

As usual anyone who could find a bug in a node or a protocol will be eligible for prizes ranging from 5,000 up to 20,000 tokens depends on the bug severity.

There will be special prizes for developers of smart contracts which can lead to a bug discovery. The pool of such prizes will be determined before the Cup start separately. If you intent to participate please contact us at any of Free TON Telegram channels.

If one winner operates several winning nodes, will it be possible to lock all prizes into one DePool of such participant?

3 Likes

It must not be possible, IMO. As well as “aggregating” MLudi and RustCup DePools.

Is Lock stake will be same as from Magister Ludi game? i.e. all rewards are goes to validator?

Challenge accepted. Fix our node name for this race: Walter Röhrl.)))

No word about slashing value in rust cup

не поддерживаю
победители раст кап получают лок, с которым они не смогут валидировать, без привлечения внешних средств
т.е. приза, как такового нет

I do not support
the winners of the rust cup get a lock with which they will not be able to validate, without the involvement of external funds
i.e. there is no prize as such

@Mitja , I think Community need AMA, to understand everything. Many questions in group.

I don’t support this proposal. Many winners of this contest will not be able to attract investment to their Depool and will not be able to validate.

3 Likes

It only means that there is no point for such “potential winners” to participate at all.

I consider this is a great proposal:

  1. We need to test and learn RUST NODE
  2. We need to test new elector
  3. Great incentive for both investor and validator
  4. Good timing calculation stimulating buying and holding TONs

We need some additional clarification:

  1. Can a person run several nodes and win several positions or this is a one person = one winner cup?
  2. Should we have KYC for a winner?
  3. Maybe not clear about participant and validator calculation of incentive. We need an example.

Please confirm that I understand right:

For example, we have a Participant who locked 100k for 48 months.

Participant will receive:

  1. standard profitability (8% now but will be 1.5 times less with increased number of validators)
    plus
  2. 20% per annum, i.e. 20k p.a. or 80k during 4 years lock period

Validator will receive:

  1. Standard depool fee (like 5%)
  2. Plus 20% from the stake, i.e. 20k for 4 year period?

My undestanding:

  • No KYC mentioned == no KYC required;
  • Then the question about one person == one winner is not relevant;
  • The example looks correct.

P.S. One beneficiary == one vesting stake implies that the validator would need to provide a separate wallet for each new participant with a self-lock stake.

There should be minimum direct reward, because other way there are no prizes. You will have to run high-end node with depool and hope that 400 mio of tokens distributed get to your depool. Which is not really likely.

Необходимо увеличить награды, это несоизмеримо с призами Magister Ludi, а требования к серверам гораздо выше. Валидаторы должны валидировать, а не заниматься маркетингом

The rewards need to be increased, this is not commensurate with the Magister Ludi prizes, and the server requirements are much higher. Validators should be validating, not marketing

the reward structure is too complex to make it safe to go through the current governance procedures.

so i also would like to see a ready-to-go mechanism to distribute rewards (Prize DeBot?).

If purpose is to enlarge number of validating nodes - lock Stake for winners should vary from 400k to 1m. Sofisticated mechanism of attracting external funds seems not workable, it do not reflect psichology of traders

It was said somewhere (weekly meetup?) by somebody (Mitja?) that we already have enough validators on the Main Net, thus [main] purpose of this contest is clearly not to enlarge their number.

The question is where to participate and how to participate?
Is there a document?
