zzoo Protocol is operated by maintainers. The maintainers provide computing resources and are compensated in zzoo tokens. In line with the zzoo Protocol goals, maintainers are required to stake zzoo tokens at a value proportional to the value of the operations they perform. As a result, there is a direct correlation between the value of the proof of stake (PoS) that the maintainers provide and the volume of trade on the system.
