Proof of physical work (PoPW)

Proof of Physical Work (PoPW) is a new token distribution mechanism that rewards participants for completing verifiable physical work in the real world. This marks an important step forward for blockchain-based technologies, connecting the digital and physical spaces.

Why choose physical work as the basis for token distribution? Here are some reasons:

  • Fairness and Dedication: PoPW ensures that everyone has the same labor rights and obligations. Verifiable physical work is the basis for token distribution, ensuring fairness and contribution from each person.

  • Creating Real Value: PoPW incentivizes the deployment and use of valuable physical infrastructure. Instead of just computing, PoPW involves doing real work, creating real value for the community.

  • Network Integration: PoPW networks bridge the gap between digital and physical realms. Participants deploy and maintain the physical infrastructure that creates the network, benefiting everyone.

Thus, PoPW is a useful mechanism to create a fair distribution system and encourage the development of real infrastructure.

Overall Process

To provide a reliable and scalable computational power infrastructure, Kaisar has implemented a complete hardware validator and computational proof mechanism by combining secure hardware with advanced encryption algorithms. The overall process is as follows:

  • The Provider launches the Kaisar Provider software. During the node's startup phase, the process itself checks the status of the GPU components, as well as their driver versions.

  • If the device is not registered, the software automatically registers the Provider's device to the blockchain.

  • Checkers in the system will periodically send jobs to the Provider to check device information, uptime rate, and performance.

  • The Provider will examine its own operating environment, load the model, determine the certificate and device information, execute the job run, generate a report of the results, and send that report to the Checker as PoPW proof.

  • The Checker validates the runtime information based on the received report, then sends the report to blockchain and completes the node check process.

  • The blockchain receives report information from Checkers, synthesizes and compares it to reach a consensus on the evidence sent by Checkers, and updates scores for Providers.

  • At the end of an epoch, the blockchain automatically calculates rewards for Providers based on scores and returns rewards to the Provider's wallet.
