Even in Web3, trust can be fragile.
That's where Proof of Machinehood comes in. Putting hardware attestations on-chain makes it possible to establish the authenticity and uniqueness of machines involved in computation.
The application-specific rollup transforms Web3 into a decentralized, open network that anyone can transparently audit and interact with.

On-chain verifications signal trust
Automata 2.0 is not tied down to any one blockchain framework. Modular attestations go beyond the constraints of siloed ecosystems to improve the performance, developer experience and auditability for Web3 as a an open platform.
An extension of the Ethereum way of work.
Optimistic Attestation allows anyone to submit and verify attestations in a permissionless manner. Its modular framework works intuitively with blockchain ecosystems to open up the design space for Web3 applications. This includes our work with AltLayer, a leading Rollups-as-a-Service-provider.
Zero knowledge proofs
A privacy-preserving, shared notion of truth.
Zero-knowledge proofs (ZKPs) are useful for confirming the validity of computation without knowing its input, whilst remaining on-chain and fully auditable. ZKPs also scale compute-restrained networks with its deft handling of complex cryptographic primitives.
Proof of Machinehood proves the uniqueness and inherent value of machines without the need for excessive computation or capital. Trust is enforced by the silicon-based hardware, which makes it extraordinarily resistant to both sybil attacks and spoofing attempts.
Proof of Machinehood
PoM illustrates how machine attestations can be proved on-chain. Since verifications cannot be altered and their provenance is auditable, a number of compelling use cases become possible.
Private RPC relay
1RPC is a free RPC relay that shields users from metadata exposure and leakage. Its enclave infrastructure runs on the cloud and is backed by attestations ensuring hardware integrity.
Verifiable Random Function
Using drand as a trusted source of entropy, along with an off-chain oracle and smart contract, Automata's VRF generates a value which can be attested and cryptographically verified as random.
Private Block Building
Remote attestations on the block builder hosted inside Intel SGX verifies if user transactions are protected within its encrypted enclave environment. Transaction confidentiality is secured.
