1. Deterministic masternodes lists are fully derived from on-chain data (every participant in the network knows and agrees exactly what the active set of nodes is).
2. In the current Crown node model, nodes pass messages back and forwards between themselves and eventually mostly agree on what the current set is. But different nodes/wallets can see different sets.
3. Deterministic nodes store data on the chain instead of talking to each other, so anyone can generate a node list at any time and come up with exactly the same answer.
4. A deterministic MN model cuts down on network traffic, provides better consistency and reduces the possibility of phantom nodes.IMPLEMENTATION IN PROGRESS TO BE INCLUDED IN BITCOIN V0.17 CODEBASE UPDATE
The Crown NFT framework currently enables its users to register NFT protocols and NF tokens. A trading capability needs to be designed and implemented in order to be able to harness the full potential of the NFT framework.
