Reinforced Security

Omni achieves stronger and more stable security guarantees than existing interoperability protocols by deriving its cryptoeconomic security from restaked $ETH. Omni extends its security model further by incorporating staked $OMNI using a dual staking model. Effectively, the total cryptoeconomic security of Omni is determined by the combined value of restaked $ETH and staked $OMNI.

Using this dual staking model, the total cryptoeconomic security C\textit{C} of the system is given by the formula:

C=23a=0mv=0nPa(Sa,v)C = \frac{2}{3} \sum_{a=0}^{m} \sum_{v=0}^{n} P_a(S_{a,v})


  • Sa,vS_{a,v} is the amount staked by validator vv for asset aa
  • PaP_a is the function mapping the amount of asset aa staked to validator power
  • nn is the total number of validators
  • mm is the total number of unique staked asset types

Omni uses this reinforced staking model to scale its security across two dimensions. Restaked $ETH anchors Omni’s security to Ethereum L1, enabling it to grow in line with Ethereum’s own security budget. The addition of staked $OMNI builds upon this base, expanding Omni’s security alongside its own network activity. Collectively, these two complementary mechanisms provide robust and dynamic security guarantees for Omni, setting a new standard for secure interoperability for the Ethereum ecosystem.
