Mixnet Contract

The Mixnet smart contract is a core piece of the Nym system, functioning as the mixnet directory and keeping track of delegations and rewards: the core functionality required by an incentivised mixnet. You can find the code and build instructions here.


The Mixnet contract has multiple functions:

  • storing bonded mix node and gateway information (and removing this on unbonding).
  • providing the network-topology to the (cached) validator API endpoint used by clients on startup for routing information.
  • storing delegation and bond amounts.
  • storing reward amounts.

The addresses of deployed smart contracts can be found in the network-defaults directory of the codebase alongside other network default values.
