Zentachain has its own designed nodes of nodes called Zentanode. Zentanode can be regarded as a node, a device, a data point in Zentameshnet. The nodes have been created to provide Zentalk users with long range offline communication even without an internet connection. Zentanodes are active network components such as mobile phones, routers, switches, bridges, and gateways.
The ideas of nodes were popularized with the adoption of packet-switching theory and the concept of distributed networks. In this context, nodes were gateways that could receive, store, and send information along different routes through a distributed network. Each node was given an equal standing within the network, meaning that the loss of any one node wouldn’t hurt the network.
Zentanodes in the Zentameshnet can also act as their gateway to grow network and strengthen it. Users also able to close their network with a pin code to connect with their only own nodes. Each node has its own unique Hash-Id. Any mobile phone, tablet, or computer using the Zentanode functions as a node within the network.
Zentagate connects the ecosystem to use Zentameshnet such as the Internet. Zentagate provides additional encryption by AES and anti-hack layer, to ensure the user is connected and protected safely.
The root node is the top node in the network and serves as the only interface between the Zentameshnet and an external IP network which is protected with the Tor Network. Once the root node has connected to the router, idle nodes in the range of the root node will begin connecting with the root node thereby, forming the second layer of the network.
The root node can also be designated by a user which will entail the designated root node to directly connect with the router and forgo the election process. When the root node is designated, all other nodes within the network must also forget the election process to prevent the occurrence of a root node conflict.
Payment over the Zentameshnet
The signed transaction is sent automatically to the Zentalk Application. Zentalk will broadcast the transaction to nearby Zentanodes. They relay the transaction data from a Z-node to another Z-node until it reaches a node running with internet access, which can send the transaction to the Bitcoin or to the other network like Zentanetwork, Kusama and Polkadot.
