Klever Docs


Based on Proof of Stake network, Klever chronology is organized into slots and epochs.


A slot is the minimum time delay between each block, before an elected Masternode proposes a new block. The initial slot time is 4 seconds and can be updated by a network proposal.


Epochs are sets of slots defined by a fixed time; each epoch lasts 6 hours. This parameter can also be upgraded by a network proposal. At the end of each epoch, a new set of masternodes will be selected as the next Epoch validators.


When an epoch starts, initially 21 masternodes (this number can be changed by network proposal) are randomly chosen to be the validators for that epoch according to the previous hash. A masternode can be chosen to be a validator more than 2 times in a row.
