Slashing
A user can query and interact with the slashing module using the CLI. For more information about how slashing works on the Secret Network go to the Node Runners page and look for the 'Slashing For Downtime' section.
See Slashing for the official Cosmos Network module documentation.

Query

The query commands allow users to query slashing state:
secretcli query slashing --help
Available Commands:
params Query the current slashing parameters
signing-info Query a validator's signing information
signing-infos Query signing information of all validators

Params

The params command allows users to query genesis parameters for the slashing module.
secretcli query slashing params -oj | jq

Example Output

{
"signed_blocks_window": "22500",
"min_signed_per_window": "0.500000000000000000",
"downtime_jail_duration": "600s",
"slash_fraction_double_sign": "0.050000000000000000",
"slash_fraction_downtime": "0.000100000000000000"
}

Signed Blocks Window

signed_blocks_window, alongside min_signed_per_window is how validator uptime is calculated. With an average block time of 6 seconds, 22500 blocks is roughly 37 hours worth of blocks.

Min Signed Per Window

min_signed_per_window is a percentage. For Secret, that number is 50%. In other words, to become jailed, a validator must miss half of the 22500 blocks (as defined by signed_blocks_window) in order to become jailed. Given that 22500 blocks takes roughly 37 hours, it'd require missing nearly 18 hours of consecutive blocks to become jailed and incur a downtime slashing event.

Downtime Jail Duration

downtime_jail_duration is how many seconds must pass before a validator can become unjailed by running secretd tx slashing unjail --from {wallet}.

Slash Fraction Double Sign

slash_fraction_double_sign is the percent of all stake on the validator that is burned when a validator is slashed. For most networks including Secret, that value is 5%. Meaning, if 100 SCRT is delegated to the validator regardless of whether it's owned by the operator or delegators, 5 SCRT will be burned and permanently taken out of circulation.

Slash Fraction Downtime

slash_fraction_downtime is the percent of all stake on the validator that is burned when a validator is slashed. For most networks including Secret, that value is 0.01%. Meaning, if 100 SCRT is delegated to the validator regardless of whether it's owned by the operator or delegators, 0.01 SCRT will be burned and permanently taken out of circulation.

Signing-info

The signing-info command allows users to query signing-info of the validator using consensus public key.
secretcli query slashing signing-info [public-key]

Example

secretcli query slashing signing-info \
'{ "@type": "/cosmos.crypto.ed25519.PubKey","key": "iKZCEP93nVojf2UhQh72yT+d3XEgRlrX1NZBtJJCL2o=" }'

Example Output:

{
"address": "secretvalcons1hgsv6kc667du838csfuy7swcdq2z5mdtuje4wa",
"start_height": "3117888",
"index_offset": "237143",
"jailed_until": "1970-01-01T00:00:00Z",
"tombstoned": false,
"missed_blocks_counter": "38"
}

Signing-infos

The signing-infos command allows users to query signing infos of all validators.
secretcli query slashing signing-infos

Example Output

{
"info": [
// ...
{
"address": "secretvalcons1hgsv6kc667du838csfuy7swcdq2z5mdtuje4wa",
"start_height": "3117888",
"index_offset": "237143",
"jailed_until": "1970-01-01T00:00:00Z",
"tombstoned": false,
"missed_blocks_counter": "38"
},
// ...
]
}

Transactions

The tx commands allow users to interact with the slashing module.
secretcli tx slashing --help

Unjail

The unjail command allows users to unjail a validator previously jailed for downtime.
secretcli tx slashing unjail --from mykey [flags]

Example

secretd tx slashing unjail --from mykey
