Tezos Confusion with calculation of available staking capacity in Tezos. Who is right?

<p>Tezos ecosystem includes solid tools to monitor network performance and staking rewards. Block explorers represent a major part of the ecosystem transparency and health. Delegators and bakers often rely on such tools before making decisions such as, should I add to my self-bond or which baker to stake with. Diversity of these services provide users with unique experience and allow them to choose one that corresponds to a particular need.</p><p>Analytical explorers display two types of parameters. The first is derived right from the blockchain data and in most cases they are identical on different analytical tools. Values of these parameters can be slightly different on various explorers because of the network data update frequency. The second type of parameters is calculated using network variables and blockchain data.</p><p>It may lead to a confusion when the same variable has different values on multiple resources. It can be because of different approaches taken for calculation or using different timeframes. Currently, <em><em>available staking capacity</em></em> has different values for the same bakers on various analytical websites. It represents an amount of XTZ that can be staked with a particular baker without making him over-delegated. Delegated tokens above the limit will not contribute to the power of the baker.</p><h3 id="example"><strong>Example</strong></h3><p>Stats for P2P Validator on various analytical tools for 19.03.2020:</p><p><em><em>Tzstats.io</em></em>: staking capacity = 14 048 492 XTZ resulting in available staking capacity = <strong><strong>1 971 806 XTZ</strong></strong>.</p><p><em><em>MyTezosBaker</em></em>: available staking capacity = <strong><strong>802 752 XTZ</strong></strong>| staking capacity = 12 881 681 XTZ.</p><p><em><em>Tezos Nodes</em></em>: available staking capacity = <strong><strong>2 007 769 XTZ</strong></strong> resulting in staking capacity = 14 079 769 XTZ.</p><p><em><em>Baking Bad:</em></em> available staking capacity = <strong><strong>1 972 000 XTZ</strong></strong> resulting in staking capacity = 14 044 000 XTZ.</p><p>In some cases, the difference between the values above is significant and cannot be explained by fluctuations of baking rights and endorsements. Who is right?</p><p>The purpose of this post is to establish a single approach for available staking capacity calculation and eliminate errors and confusion for end users on various analytical resources. Below I share my understanding of the correct approach to calculate this parameter and invite everyone in Tezos community to join the discussion, express your point of view or suggest other ways of thinking about this parameter.</p><h1 id="security-deposit"><strong>Security deposit</strong></h1><p>In order to create blocks baker should maintain a specific amount of self-bond that is used for security deposit required by the Tezos protocol and subjected to slashing as a measure against misbehavior. Security deposit per created block is equal to 512 XTZ and per endorsement is equal to 64 XTZ. When validator bakes block or endorses, these funds become frozen for a number of preserved cycles defined by the protocol and unfreeze at their end.</p><p>If we assume that 100% of total supply participate in staking we can calculate the minimum bond requirement for a baker: <code>((block_security_depo + endorsement_security_depo * endorsers_per_block) * blocks_per_cycle * (preserved_cycles+1)) / total_supply</code></p><p>Let's split this formula into parts:</p><p>Part 1: <code>block_security_depo + endorsement_security_depo * endorsers_per_block</code></p><p>In this part we calculate the total amount of security deposit per block.</p><p>Part 2: <code>blocks_per_cycle * (preserved_cycles+1)</code></p><p>By multiplying the total security deposit per block by the number of blocks in the cycle and frozen period plus one we get the total amount of XTZ that are frozen for preserved cycles.</p><p>Part 3: <code>Part 1 * Part 2 / total_supply</code></p><p>Here we finally calculate the security deposit share of the total supply.</p><p>Let's crunch some numbers:</p><p><code>block_security_depo = 512 XTZ</code></p><p><code>endorsement_security_depo = 64 XTZ</code></p><p><code>endorsers_per_block = 32</code></p><p><code>blocks_per_cycle = 4096</code></p><p><code>preserved_cycles = 5</code></p><p>All these parameters are derived from a Tezos protocol and represent constant values until community decides to propose changes via governance procedure. The only dynamic parameter is <code>total_supply</code> which is equal <em><em>~ 829,34 million XTZ</em></em> (19.03.2020).</p><p>The actual self-bond requirement is floating as baking frequency and endorsement rights are changing but for this case we will not take possible baking deviations into consideration.</p><p>The whole calculation of minimum self-bond requirement <em><em>if 100% tokens at stake</em></em> look like: <code>((512 + 64 * 32) * 4096 * (5+1)) / 829 340 996 = 7,59%</code>.</p><p>With a decrease of total supply percentage at stake, minimum self-bond requirement will increase as overall share of frozen XTZ in a security deposit related to the participating tokens will be higher.</p><p>To calculate the exact self-bond requirement we can simply put the exact number of tokens at stake instead of <code>total_supply</code> or divide the result of previous calculation, made for 100% staked tokens, by the actual percentage of staked XTZ. It will result in <strong><strong>~9,64%</strong></strong> of <em><em>actual self-bond requirement</em></em> for a baker.</p><p>The only caveat here is that <code>total_supply</code> is growing over time while security deposits remain the same. In the long run it will result in lower self-bond requirement as well as the network security.</p><h1 id="available-staking-capacity"><strong>Available staking capacity</strong></h1><p>After finding the exact self-bond requirement we can answer two questions:</p><p>1) Does a particular baker maintain sufficient self-bond?</p><p>2) How many XTZ a particular baker can accept before it becomes over-delegated?</p><p>To answer the first question we should find a self-bond share in the total staking balance.</p><p><code>staking_balance = self_bond + delegated_balance</code></p><p><code>self_bond / staking_balance * 100 = X%</code>.</p><p>If <code>X &gt; actual_self_bond_req</code> then baker has enough self-bond and won't miss baking or endorsement slots.</p><p>The answer to the second question is available staking capacity. To find this value we should substract staking balance from the maximum balance.</p><p><code>max_balance = self_bond / actual_self_bond_req</code></p><p><code>available_staking_capacity = max_balance - staking_balance</code></p><p>To make calculation of available capacity even more precise you can adjust <code>self_bond</code> by <code>frozen_fees</code> + <code>frozen_rewards</code> as they do not take part in security deposits and use actual rolls of a baker to get the actual <code>staking_balance</code>.</p><p>Using formulas from above we get <code>available staking capacity of P2P Validator ~ 1 997 663 XTZ</code> (19.03.2020).</p><p>Seems like <a href="https://baking-bad.org/">Baking Bad</a>, <a href="https://tzstats.com/tz1P2Po7YM526ughEsRbY4oR9zaUPDZjxFrb">Tzstats</a> and <a href="https://www.tezos-nodes.com/">Tezos Nodes</a> are quite aligned with the value and use similar approach for calculation of a baker free space.</p><p>Now you have all the necessary information to check by yourself if the self-bond is sufficient enough to bake and what is the available staking capacity of a baker. In addition, we have created a <a href="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ZxRBHETPixxeYAG0efJbXsKeiIHPq1nGWJ2ZazND2a8/edit#gid=1765745933">spreadsheet with prepared calculations</a> for simplicity. We also improved a calculation for self-bond and staking balance of a baker to make available capacity value even more precise.</p><hr><p><em><em>Special thanks to Baking Bad and StakeNow for paying attention to the article and facilitating valuable discussions.</em></em></p><hr><p><strong><strong>P2P Validator</strong></strong> provides secure non-custodial staking.

Tezos P2P Validator: our payout model for Tezos rewards is changed

<p>At <a href="https://p2p.org/">p2p.org</a> we want to build the most simple and secure staking service for our clients. Our delegators prefer to get their rewards faster and we have done it! We are improving the staking experience for all our delegators making P2P Validator a comfortable and robust partner to stake with.</p><h1 id="first-tezos-payout-40-faster"><strong>First Tezos payout 40% faster</strong></h1><p>When someone delegates XTZ to a baker, the staked amount begins to generate rewards 7 cycles (1 cycle ~ 3 days) after the cycle the delegation was made. At the end of this period stake earns a portion of the total rewards generated in each of the following cycles. These rewards get frozen for 5 cycles together with the security deposits. If a baker double-bakes or double-endorses these funds get seized from the baker as a punishment measure. In addition, the baker loses all the rewards and fees that were locked together with the security deposits.</p><p>Each baker decides their reward payout model. <strong><strong>To make the staking process easier we will pay rewards that are frozen from our own funds</strong></strong> since they are already earned. The first payout will follow after the 7th cycle. All delegators will get their rewards in advance even in cases of slashing.</p><h3 id="new-delegators"><strong>New delegators</strong></h3><p>Example - you started staking at <code>cycle 154</code>. The user will get their first reward after twelve cycles. Rewards begin accumulating after the 7th cycle. The first reward will follow at <code>cycle 166</code>. However, if you delegate to <a href="https://p2p.org/">P2P Validator</a> you will get your first payout at <code>cycle 161</code>, which is 15 days earlier than originally expected. <strong><strong>This method decreases the wait period for the first payout by 40%.</strong></strong></p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/1-10.png" class="kg-image" alt srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/1-10.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/1-10.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/1-10.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/1-10.png 1743w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><h3 id="recent-delegators"><strong>Recent delegators</strong></h3><p>On October 1, 2019 our existing delegators will get their rewards that are currently frozen and will continue to receive payouts each following cycle. For example, if you delegated in <code>145 cycle</code>, you will get rewards for two cycles (<em><em>C152, C153</em></em>) with two transactions. Each payout will correspond with the reward of the cycle. After that you will get payouts each cycle, so the next reward will be distributed at <code>cycle 155</code>.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/2-12.png" class="kg-image" alt srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/2-12.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/2-12.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/2-12.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/2-12.png 1639w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><h3 id="early-delegators"><strong>Early delegators</strong></h3><p>For our early clients who have been with us for more than twelve cycles, these changes will mean that you will receive your frozen rewards immediately. For example, if you delegated at <code>cycle 142</code> under the old payout model you would have received rewards for <code>cycle 149</code> at <code>cycle 154</code>. In our new model, at <code>cycle 154</code> you will receive five payouts for cycles <em><em>149, 150, 151, 152, 153</em></em> that correspond with the reward of the cycle. After that cycle you will continue to receive rewards each following cycle without further delays or shortfalls.

Tezos Stake Tezos with Ledger on p2p.org

<p>Staking is always comes with some degree of risk. The delegation process in most cases is not a simple one and a possible danger lies in the need to store your tokens with a third party provider in order to improve your staking experience. The fundamental rule is: your keys - your crypto. When you hold your keys you control the risk, when you use third parties in order to simplify the delegation process you transfer the risk to them.</p><p>One of the most secure ways to become a delegator is to use cold staking from your hardware wallet even if sometimes it is less convenient. Today, we are happy to announce that you no longer have to sacrifice safety for convenience. Now you can simply hold your Tezos in your Ledger and safely delegate or re-delegate to P2P Validator using a simple staking tool on our website.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/DzsTMmr.jpg" class="kg-image" alt srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/DzsTMmr.jpg 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/DzsTMmr.jpg 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2020/09/DzsTMmr.jpg 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w2400/2020/09/DzsTMmr.jpg 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>To become a delegator or re-delegate your XTZ tokens you just need to perform three simple steps that take less than five minutes. <a href="https://p2p.org/tezos">Try it now</a> and enjoy simple and secure staking!</p><hr><p><em><em>Providing a secure staking experience is one of our core priorities.
