This depends on what your priorities are: returns, supporting new validators, risk & network resilience.
The Solana network depends on having many validators that operate from different geographic locations to ensure decentralisation and censorship resistance.
When choosing a validator you should consider the APY (you can check this on stakeview.app
) as well as the validator's location/data centre (you can check DC concentration on validators.app
), their history and current stake.
The halt line is the number of validators that cumulatively control enough stake to stop the Solana network. You can view this line on solanabeach.io
. Ideally you don't stake
a validator above the halt line but rather those below.
Our validator is the only one
in its current data centre, is below the halt line, our APY is in the top 6%
and we're committed to the Solana network and actively participate on the Solana Discord
. We'd love it if you chose to stake us.
