01.What is Slashing?
Slashing is when a node is found to be breaking the rules of a PoS network and is punished with the loss of some or all of the coins that it was staking on the network as a result. Slashing is designed to discourage harmful behavior from node operators and validators in order to maintain a high level of integrity and security for PoS networks.
