FAQ

Is there a risk in delegating ONE to the Ideal validator?

All delegators to all validators run the risk of slashing. This can happen when a validator breaches the protocol.

On paper, this could happen when a validator is Double Signing. When doing so, the validator loses at least 2% of stake depending on the number of slots that are corrupted.

In practice, this has never happened before on the entire Harmony blockchain.

How can I delegate ONE to the Ideal validator?

You can delegate ONE to Ideal with one of the supported wallets listed here.

  1. Connect the wallet with the official staking dashboard
  2. Search for the Ideal validator in the list of elected validators
  3. Click on Delegate
  4. Select the desired amount of ONE and hit Confirm

When will I receive delegation rewards?

It takes about an epoch or two (~48 hours) for the first rewards to be awarded. Note that the validator has to be Elected in order to make rewards.

How do I monitor the performance of the validator?

Use the official dashboard to monitor the performance of the ideal pool.

Why are the rewards different for each epoch?

Rewards are based on the amount of slots a validator has. In addition, factors such as the validator’s stake, total amount of ONE staked on the chain and the performance of shards influence rewards. These factors change with each epoch.
