Importance of Delegating Stake

  • Obviously, you should only delegate to nodes that you trust not only to not be an attacker, but to have the technical ability and commitment to operate a reliable node.
  • Resist the temptation to stake to only one or two nodes. Even the most well-intentioned node-runner may be disconnected for reasons beyond their control. If they have too much stake, a disconnection like this could slow the network or even (in an extreme situation) cause the network to temporarily halt.
  • Diversity is important! A good, reliable, secure network should be made of node-runners with different types of deployments, in different locations — each with enough stake delegated to them to participate strongly in the network. Known community members are great, but so are professional node-running services, individuals who are making a strong effort to engage with the community, and others.
