Cluster of Workers

Cluster: Abstraction of Workers

Phala has many Workers but we do not expose them to developers directly. They are organized into Clusters and used by our developers.

  • Contracts must be deployed to a Cluster, and a Cluster can hold multiple contracts

    • Contracts in different Clusters have no relationship, even if they share the same code

    • Contracts in one Cluster can call each other, and contracts in different Clusters need to call each other in an XCM-like way (BTW, the XCM support is WIP, so this should be supported soon)

  • A Cluster is backed by one or more Workers

    • The Worker will run all the contracts in this Cluster

  • Different access controls can be defined for different Clusters

    • like who can deploy how many contracts in this Cluster

Accordingly, we have a two-level contract tokenomics for this design.

  • The L1 tokenomics define how you stake $PHA to rent Workers and form your Cluster

    • We will provide the public good Clusters, and people can stake $PHA to get the proportional computing power in our network

  • The L2 tokenomics define how Cluster owners charge the contract deployers

    • We provide a template implementation (with Public and OnlyOwner rules) and will allow owners to implement their own logic with Phat Contract
