ODIN protocol uses delegated proof of stake as a consensus reaching algorithm. This means that decisions about updating the state of the system can be applied by a limited number of validators that were chosen during the vote. Validators are selected by network members who own ODIN Tokens and can delegate them in favor of one of the delegates. In this case, the weight of the voter is determined by the number of tokens that they are ready to put on the delegate. After the voting stage, the 30 delegates who received the most votes become validators until the next vote.
