In order to process blockchain withdrawals from the pool, the audit servers must agree on a set of parameters used to deterministically construct blockchain transactions. The servers arrive at a new consensus at a short intervals.

Each new consensus will result in a unanimous agreement on the following parameters:

  1. The address identifier for the first input to be used for constructing withdrawal transaction(s)
  2. The address identifier for the first Change Address to be used by the resulting withdrawal transaction(s)
  3. The highest series number which at least m pool members have thawed
  4. A list of valid withdrawals to be processed, which may be an empty list
  5. The smallest value above which an input is considered eligible for inclusion in a transaction and below which is considered "dust"
