Faults #


There are two main categories of faults in the Filecoin network.

  • ConsensusFaults
  • StorageDealFaults

ConsensusFaults are faults that impact network consensus and StorageDealFaults are faults where data in a StorageDeal is not maintained by the providers pursuant to deal terms.

Pledge Collateral is slashed for ConsensusFaults and Storage Deal Collateral for StorageDealFaults.

Any misbehavior may result in more than one fault thus lead to slashing on both collaterals. For example, missing a PoStProof will incur a penalty on both PledgeCollateral and StorageDealCollateral given it impacts both a given StorageDeal and power derived from the sector commitments in Storage Power Consensus.
