Sentinel is a decentralized VPN network built on Tendermint and Cosmos SDK. Sentinel enables anyone to create Public and Private networks that provide access to decentralized applications and distributed resources, allowing users to become both producers and consumers in the network.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I explore the network and create a Sentinel wallet?

Sentinel has a desktop wallet that can be downloaded from GitHub. Users will need to enter an authentication password – just enter: admin

Ledger owners can connect to the network through Cosmostation.

Find their block explorer at explorer.sentinel.co

What is the name of the asset being staked?

Sentinel’s native token, SENT, is used to stake.

Do I maintain custody of my SENT tokens? Who or what controls my staked SENT token?

You can self-custody your Sentinel SENT tokens, ideally using a Ledger hardware wallet.

Figment has partnerships with a number of top-in-class custodians: support@figment.io

The Sentinel protocol takes control of your SENT tokens while you are staking. If you unbond your tokens, this process will take 28 days before the protocol returns your tokens to you.

Can my staked SENT be slashed (seized or destroyed)?

Yes, a portion of your staked SENT can be destroyed. There are two ways this can happen:

  1. If you delegate to a validator that is offline for certain amount of time (9,500/10,000 blocks), you will lose 0.01% of the tokens you have delegated to that validator.
  2. If you delegate to a validator that signs the same block twice with the same key, you will lose 5% of the tokens you have delegated to that validator.
Is staking income liquid or automatically staked?

Staking income is staked automatically, which means you will need to unstake to withdraw your staking income.

Can I lose potential staking rewards?

Your potential rewards depend upon validator performance. When your validator is down, you will not be earning staking income.

What is the rate of new issuance (aka "annual inflation") for SENT? How does the token supply change?

Right now, the inflation rate is around 49% of the total supply, and set to decrease by 6% every six months.

How are decisions about the Sentinel made and executed?

Sentinel uses token voting for on-chain governance. The more tokens that someone holds the more voting power that they will have on the network.
