As written by the author on 2nd June 2020, the concept is a “design for an ETH2 staking solution on top of Argent that is fast and simple to use so that users with less time, knowledge or skills can join from the beginning.” Argent is simply a cryptocurrency wallet related to decentralized finance (DEFI).
The Concept Is Targeted at Simplicity
