Zentanodes are its own nodes designed by Zentachain to enable offline communication through Zentanetwork. The Zentalk messenger application can be used without an internet connection. Zentanode can be thought of as a node, a device, a data point in the network. The nodes are also active network components such as cell phones, routers, switches, bridges, and gateways.
Zentagate runs the service that allows data and transactions to be routed in the network with a node and allows the user to stay connected without internet access. It ensures extra encryption by AES and an anti-hack layer, to provide the user is engaged and secured safely. The gateway connects to the ecosystem for the usage of the Zentameshnet such as the Internet. All nodes in the network can also act as their Gateway to expand the network. Since each node owner has its own ID, they can isolate their node with a pin code to connect to their nodes.
The root node is the top node in the network and serves as the only interface between the Zentameshnet and an external IP network which is protected with the Tor Network. Once the root node has connected to the router, idle nodes in the range of the root node will begin connecting with the root node thereby, forming the second layer of the network.
The root node can also be designated by a user which will entail the designated root node to directly connect with the router and forgo the election process. When the root node is designated, all other nodes within the network must also forget the election process to prevent the occurrence of a root node conflict.
A Zentanode in the Zentameshnet can also act as their Gateway to grow the network range. Users also able to isolate their network with a pin code to connect with their only own known nodes. Each node has its own unique Hash-Id. Any mobile phone, tablet, or computer using the Zentalk messenger application functions as a node within Zentanetwork.
The signed transaction is sent automatically to the Zentalk Application. Zentalk will broadcast the transaction to nearby Zentanodes. They relay the transaction data from a Z-node to another Z-node until it reaches a mesh node running Zentalk with internet access, which can send the transaction to the Bitcoin or to the Zentanetwork. Users can use BTC, CHAIN, DOT, and KSM for making payments.
