The Validators will be selected from the holders who bought SCPT during the first-stage private sale, who then deployed their nodes and were screened on the Testnet. To protect the network, Validators must KYC. To join the Validator pool, a node needs to lock up a certain amount of stake for a period. The amount of SCPT required to be staked to become a Validator can vary, and the updated figure can be found at https://token.script.tv. This stake can be slashed as a penalty for malicious behavior. A limited set of 10-20 Validator nodes constitute the Validator Pool.
