Minipool Awaiting Launch
Will be assigned to a smart node and launched when min required Ether is met. Node assigned is based on geographic region and server load.
Minipool is assigned to a smart node and its collective deposit and node details are sent to Casper where it becomes a validator.
Not your average node. Smart nodes run special services that allow them broadcast their current server load, try to help other nodes and more.
