How does the chain recover from halted state?


If total validators weight drops below the required minimum weight, the chain is halted. In this case, the existing validators cannot perform any action like closing a meta block and new validators cannot participate by depositing the stake amount.

With refercnce to the existing code, as deposit is restricted in this condition, how will the chain recover with the existing set of validators?


When an auxiliary chain halts, it is dead and cannot be recovered. A new auxiliary chain must be created in its stead. It does not matter why an auxiliary chain halted.

In the case of the total validator weight dropping below the minimum weight, maybe we can think of a smart way to recover the auxiliary chain, but that is currently not covered.
