Design goals

We believe that a rating methodology for validator and operator performance, as well as all the adjacent methodologies that describe the various agents that make up Ethereum's consensus layer, should be described by the following principles:
  1. 1.
    Generalisability: To be as generalisable as possible
  2. 2.
    Legibility: To be as easily understood as possible
  3. 3.
    Permanence: To require as little adjustments after every upgrade as possible
  4. 4.
    Autonomy: To be as independent of the requirement for human action as possible
