Engineering FAQ

Frequently asked questions about how Polybase works.
Where does validation take place? Sequencer, prover, or both?
The sequencers and provers both perform some part of validation. They can both be run by the same node.
Does Polybase have public or private node operators?
For the first testnets we won't have external node operators. In the testnet 3 we will have invite-only node operators. For mainnet we will convert those to mainnet nodes and then open the network for anyone to stake.
