At its core, Sentinel is a decentralized p2p bandwidth distribution network built on Tendermint and the Cosmos SDK that gives anyone the ability to monetize their bandwidth by devoting it to the Sentinel network.

The amount of bandwidth given and used by network participants is metered and confirmed by Sentinel’s set of validators.

Sentinel’s native token, DVPN, is used to stake and on-chain governance 


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

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

Yes, a portion of your staked DVPN 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.

Staking income on Persistence is automatically distributed every block. Figment is never in control of your rewards.

Staking income is liquid, but you will need to claim them.

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

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

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.
