Contracts architecture overview

The protocol is built using a star-like architecture. The Interconnector contract is the center of the star. The Interconnector serves as the router between other contracts or groups of contracts(Leafs). Communication between different pieces of logic is done through Interconnector, which knows addresses of every Leaf.

As an example, when a user wants to withdraw rewards from Rewards Hub, the latter calls Supervisor through Interconnector to check if the user passes the validations for this action.

The star-like architecture in conjunction with proxy contracts simplifies redeploys and updates of independent pieces of logic.

The Interconnector contract is written so that only it has the right to substitute itself to a new Interconnector address within all Leafs. That means that every update of the protocol, if it involves changes in communication of contracts between each other, requires a new instance of Interconnector to be deployed. The old version puts a new address into all the Leafs.

The Interconnector is a one-time, non-proxied contract. It is necessary to deploy a new version of Interconnector in case the address of one of the existing Leafs changes.
