I'm new to the blockchain space and I am trying to grasp some fundamentals before delving into programming smart contracts. Please correct me if I am wrong regarding any of the following. This is just my understanding as of now.
Plasma will enable me to run 1 or more smart contracts on a separate chain on top of the Ethereum root chain. I will have validators/miners for my off-chain smart contracts. I should also be able to create a token that can be used to pay transactions costs.
If this is the case, how do I create validators/miners for my token? Is there a specification for this? Also, are there any good resources for understanding how to create a plasma staking token?
