Details of the Validator, the challenge verifier.

The Validator is the node/provider that validates the blobber's answer to the challenge, called Challenge Proofs, by making sure the data provided in the message is coherent. Since the message contains all the data needed to validate, this provider is stateless which means it doesn't need to save any data.

The Validator can also be owned by users. Each Chimney deployment actually has both a blobber and a validator.

Core responsibility of the Validators

The validator is a single-responsibility provider; just validating the correctness of blobber proof to a challenge.

Logical Components of the Validators

The Validator consists of just an HTTP API handler that handles the upcoming challenge validation.
