Enrollment Process for Validators and Delegators
The process to become a Shibarium Delegator is relatively simple, the sole requirement is staking your tokens on a validator of your choice.
There is no fixed limit to the number of delegators in Shibarium’s proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain network. However, the number of delegators is limited to the amount of available stake in the network, as each delegator must hold a certain amount of the network's native token in order to participate in the validation process. In contrast, becoming a Validator requires setting up and running a node.
❗The number of validators are limited to 100 slots. Validators are also required to stake a minimum of 10,000 BONE.
Validator performance is critical for the stability and security of Shibarium. In order to ensure the network is in secure hands, in the early stages validator selection will be a manual process requiring an application and interview for consideration.
❗The onboarding of these Validators will be done taking into account the experience, trust, knowledge and ensuring that these validators are committed to the health and integrity of Shibarium.
As the slots for Validators are limited, new Validators can only access when an active Validator leaves or loses their slot in the network.
:::alert More details of the onboarding process for Validators will be provided as we deliver a dedicated informational broadcast and via our dedicated knowledge base. :::
