What is CARV Protocol?

The CARV Protocol is a modular data layer that facilitates data exchange and value distribution across gaming, AI, and ∞. It encompasses end-to-end data flow processes, including data verification, identity authentication, storage, processing, model training, and value distribution. The CARV Protocol empowers users by granting them control over their own data, enabling them to share information securely and privately while participating in revenue generated from their data usage.

Understanding CARV verifier Node

Verifier nodes are components of the verification layer. Verifier nodes are lightweight nodes managed by the community. They play a crucial role in maintaining the protocol's integrity, thereby enhancing its trustworthiness and security. Currently, these nodes primarily check TEE attestations onchain, verifying that the results are reliable and that the process maintains the privacy of user data.

How to Run Your Verifier Nodes Using the NodeOps Console?

The following steps will guide you through setting up your CARV verifier Node via the NodeOps Console. Prerequisite is that you have a CARV node NFT. Users who do not have an NFT can still purchase one here

Please note: Users can choose between two subscription models:

  1. CARV Premium: This subscription model requires you to pay for your node operations, allowing you to retain your full rewards. Additionally, you can enable users to delegate to your node, offering flexibility in setting the commission rate you wish to receive from license holders who delegate to you.

  2. Commision-based model: In this model, you do not need to pay for monthly subscriptions. Instead, the cost of your node operations is covered by a 5% share of your rewards. This means you retain 95% of your reward tokens, while 5% is allocated to NodeOps.

Step 7 - Click on 'Delegate my License,' then paste the burner address you copied from the NodeOps console. Accept the delegation. Since all operations on the Alphanet are on Arbitrum One, ensure you have sufficient ETH to cover gas fees.

Step 8 - If the operation is successful, you will receive a confirmation that the delegation was successful

Step 9: For final confirmation, your CARV verifier node status in your nodefolio should update to "running."
