Delegation through Staking with Validators

As discussed on the previous page, $BBC validators can boost their share of the overall consensus stake by attracting funds from other users who do not run validator nodes themselves.

Those users are referred to as 'delegators.' A delegator is free to choose any validator (or validators) and stake any amount of $BBC with them to participate. The most convenient way to delegate $BBC to a validator is via the $BBC Staking platform.

A delegator receives the share of Butane block rewards proportionate to their stake minus the fee paid to their chosen validator. The minimum fee is currently set at 15%. This value was chosen to mitigate the risk of validator consolidation through offering very low delegation fees.

Currently, delegators are allowed to unstake their $BBC at any time but plans are in motion to introduce a minimum staking period.
