TheGraph Loss of Epoch Rewards in Graph Network: A Post-mortem

<h2 id="tldr">TLDR</h2><p>Due to an old version of an indexer agent combined with a short-time node desynchronisation, closed allocation resulted in a zero proof of indexing on February 6th 2021. Due to this rewards for the epoch vanished. Lost rewards will be fully compensated by waiving our fee and sharing our own indexing rewards with our delegators. </p><h2 id="what-happened">What happened?</h2><p>An oversight in an upgrade process led to the indexer-agent version being out of date. A minor hiccup in Ethereum node operation coincided with the allocation closing, resulting in the closing of an allocation without a proof of indexing being submitted. Rewards will be fully compensated over the course of 12 days by charging 0% fee and sharing our own indexing rewards. </p><h2 id="what-went-wrong">What went wrong?</h2><p>We provide regular reward stats on a daily/weekly basis for delegators with locked GRT and thus had no monitoring of epoch rewards after closing an allocation. This led to a minor delay in reaction as reports are filled automatically without human intervention. Right after realising that rewards had been lost we set up an internal investigation.</p><p>Additionally was the absence of a well-reviewed upgrade procedure for new indexer releases. The upgrade procedure had no clear standard and checklist of actions to follow. New allocations were opened and no technical mistakes occurred, but existing monitoring that allocation was insufficient. We noticed that monitoring for a subgraph syncing delay had insufficient resolution time-wise so failed to catch a small hiccup in Ethereum node operation.</p><h2 id="what-went-well">What went well?</h2><p>We close and open allocations on a daily basis so we lost only one day of rewards. We collect statistics on stake changes every day and spotted a problem with reward crediting. We also thank our delegators who have noticed the issue and pointed concerns out in our <a href="https://t.me/P2Pstaking">Telegram channel</a>. </p><h2 id="impact-on-clients">Impact on clients</h2><p>All our Graph Network delegators lost one day of indexing rewards. To compensate and mitigate their loss, P2P will waive the fees for 12 days in addition to distributing all the rewards from our own indexer stake for that period. </p><h2 id="lessons-learned">Lessons learned</h2><p>We should have had monitoring for new version releases and checked that software is up to date before taking actions. To avoid such issues in the future we have defined a clear written procedure for upgrades and set monitoring for all necessary releases. This case revealed flaws in our existing monitoring so we have now initiated a deep analysis of all metrics improving it from ground up and adding necessary alerts to support this. </p><p>We have decided to make reviews for all standard operating procedures more rigorous by allocating more engineering time to these activities. Testing and improvement will be continued on the new testnet where we are already set up. All the crucial operations, upgrades and innovations that can potentially lead to a financial loss will be implemented on testnet first.</p><p>P2P takes full responsibility for this and we are sorry for the inconvenience. Please be assured that P2P is taking actions to eliminate even a small probability of such an event occurring in future.</p>

Cosmos Stargate and the new beginning of Cosmos

<p>We have voted YES to initiate the Stargate upgrade for the Cosmos Hub. We believe in the potential of the Cosmos ecosystem to grow and that<a href="https://stargate.cosmos.network/"> Stargate</a> opens a new page of ecosystem evolution being a huge step towards the original Internet of Blockchains vision.</p><p>By being an active contributor to the Cosmos ecosystem, P2P has built the dashboard to track delegation history across all the hub versions and claim rewards - a ledger delegation interface to securely stake in three simple steps. We participated in<a href="https://cosmos.network/goz"> Game of Zones</a> to test IBC in action and won the first prize in two phases. Our validator has taken part in a series of<a href="https://github.com/cosmosdevs/stargate#testnet"> testnets</a> since the beginning to prepare.</p><p><a href="https://stargate.cosmos.network/">Stargate</a> is the largest upgrade in the Cosmos ecosystem due date. What does it mean for the Cosmos network?</p><h3 id="road-to-million-blockchains">Road to million blockchains</h3><p>The current state of the ecosystem can be compared to the cities of a country struggling to communicate without capital and financial centers to connect them with each other. With the enablement of<a href="https://github.com/cosmos/ics/blob/master/papers/2020-05/build/paper.pdf"> Inter-Blockchain Communication</a> (IBC) the value can be seamlessly transferred across the ecosystem unleashing the synergetic effect among application-specific blockchains. Cosmos Hub will become the first intermedium to connect them with each other.</p><p><strong>The real long term challenge is to attract more builders and projects to the ecosystem to increase the cumulative value flow within the network.</strong> Notable improvements in performance and migration to<a href="https://medium.com/tendermint/tendermint-0-34-protocol-buffers-and-you-8c40558939ae"> Protobuf</a> blockchains will implement the upgrade to achieve higher throughput to handle the rising transaction volume. The ability to interoperate will bring composability to the ecosystem, with Protobuf it will be much easier for developers using various programming languages to communicate within the ecosystem and create novel applications.</p><p>In synergy with tools like<a href="https://github.com/tendermint/starport"> Starport</a> that allow developers to launch blockchains with a few commands and further coordinate the testnets with validators much faster, we can imagine the emergence of novel use cases and accelerated growth in areas like Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and Collectible economies powered by Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT).</p><h3 id="road-to-stargate-and-ibc">Road to Stargate and IBC</h3><p>Secure connection between blockchains requires trust in validators maintaining the actual state of the network. The Game-of-Stakes attracted and prepared solid staking providers and in March of 2019 Cosmos Hub was successfully launched on mainnet. There were two major upgrades, for the first year the focus was to battle-test staking, on-chain governance and provide a stable functioning network with a strong set of contributors.</p><p>Game of Stakes granted validators experience to be flexible to changing network conditions and on the 1st of May 2020 another incentivized competition called<a href="https://cosmos.network/goz"> Game of Zones</a> was launched to collect valuable data and prepare teams for the release of the IBC module. There were more than 150 participants.</p><p>IBC has been in development since the release of the original Cosmos whitepaper  - ongoing work to prepare and release the first version of the <a href="https://github.com/cosmos/ics/blob/master/spec.pdf">IBC specification</a> that outlines the overall design logic and architectural overview.</p><p>The plan of transition from hub-3 to hub-4 was outlined in the<a href="https://www.mintscan.io/cosmos/proposals/27"> Stargate proposal</a>. It was followed up with a<a href="https://stargate.cosmos.network/"> series of testnets</a> to examine the main features and ensure that the ecosystem participants are prepared for software changes being in line with the upgrade procedure.</p><p>On December 15th the finalized<a href="https://blog.cosmos.network/announcing-the-ibc-1-0-implementation-release-candidate-29f3245d7848"> version 1.0 of the IBC candidate</a> was announced. Multiple teams and contributors were involved in the process of improving, testing and finding bugs.</p><p>And now we have come to the point to finally bring the original vision of interoperability to the Cosmos network.</p><h3 id="what-to-expect-after-the-stargate-upgrade">What to expect after the Stargate upgrade?</h3><p>The rollout will happen in two phases as happened with with the launch of the Cosmos Hub on mainnet. During the first phase cross-chain transfers will be disabled to ensure the network is stable. Activation of the token transfer protocol will happen via on-chain governance. A proposal with parameter changes and timelines will be submitted and if passed we can utilize a fully functioning TCP/IP for blockchains in production.</p><p>With the enablement of the IBC, healthy competition among hubs can drive the development of the whole ecosystem. Novel use cases like liquidity mining over IBC can become a reality. New projects will be able to easily attract validators from the hub and ATOM will play the role of insurance against misbehavior providing strong security guarantees for new projects in the Cosmos network. Another interesting utility is that ATOM might be able to accrue fees in whitelisted tokens.</p><p>The IBC is still in its early days and adoption will take some time. Cosmos has made huge progress in these two years and P2P is proud to be part of it as a validator and contributor from the very beginning of the journey.</p><h3 id="about-p2p-validator">About P2P Validator</h3><p>P2P Validator is a world-leading non-custodial staking provider securing more than $3 billion from over 10,00 delegators across 25+ high-class networks.

Staking, TheGraph Graph Network - Brief Overview

<p>The Graph Network is an indexing protocol built for the decentralised web. Users of the Graph Network can build and share open APIs across Ethereum and IPFS to allow for fast and reliable blockchain data access. Data is managed and processed via open networks, providing users with verifiable integrity.</p><p></p><h2 id="current-network-state">Current network state</h2><p>The Graph Network was <a href="https://medium.com/graphprotocol/introducing-the-graph-4a281b28203e">introduced</a> in July 2018 and launched their <a href="https://thegraph.com/blog/the-graph-network-launches-mainnet">mainnet</a> this year, on December 17th, as the first decentralized blockchain data network.</p><p>The Graph Network works to improve access to decentralized applications through public and open APIs named subgraphs. Subgraphs dictate which data the network will index from Ethereum, as well as how this data is stored. Upon deployment, a subgraph forms part of a global blockchain data network.<br>During their testnet phase, Graph saw over 200 active indexers, together with more than 1600 individuals, complete their <a href="https://thegraph.com/blog/curator-program-launch">Curator Program</a> for decentralising data across DeFi.</p><p>Between June and November 2020 they have seen a 10x increase - from 1 to 10+ billion monthly queries - with usage across Curve, Uniswap, Decentraland and more.</p><p><br></p><h2 id="grt-token-allocation">GRT Token allocation</h2><p>In October 2020, Graph Foundation <a href="https://thegraph.com/blog/public-sale-announcement">announced a public sale</a> of GRT and successfully raised $12M. Earlier this year the Graph Foundation raised $5M in a <a href="https://thegraph.com/blog/funding-announcement">private token sale</a>.</p><p>The details of the GRT token can be found below:<br></p><ul><li><strong>Symbol</strong>: GRT</li><li><strong>Type</strong>: ERC-20</li><li><strong>Initial Circulating Token Supply</strong>: ~1,245,666,867 GRT</li><li><strong>Initial Total Token Supply</strong>: 10,000,000,000 GRT</li></ul><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/12/GRT_Piechart_v2-2.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="2000" height="1288" srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/12/GRT_Piechart_v2-2.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2020/12/GRT_Piechart_v2-2.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1600/2020/12/GRT_Piechart_v2-2.png 1600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w2400/2020/12/GRT_Piechart_v2-2.png 2400w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>More information on the <a href="https://thegraph.com/blog/announcing-the-graphs-grt-sale">GRT token sale</a> is available here: thegraph.com/blog/announcing-the-graphs-grt-sale </p><p>4% of the total GRT supply - 400M tokens - was allocated to 4,500+ persons across more than 90 countries. These delegators can contribute to the Graph Network through delegating their stake to network Indexers - like P2P - to earn indexing rewards.</p><p></p><h2 id="graph-network-staking-economics">Graph Network staking economics</h2><p>Staking in the Graph Network is a method of securing their data network and rewarding network contributions.</p><p>Node operators across the network can lock their GRT tokens to provide indexing and query processing services for improved data access. These node operators - also known as ‘Indexers’ can earn fees and indexer rewards for this.</p><p>Delegators across the network are those who hold the GRT token can stake it to contribute to the overall network security and receive a share of indexer rewards.</p><p>Delegation lets passive, less technical participants secure the Graph Network without the need to run a node.Indexers - like P2P - set a Fee and Reward Percentage which they keep, with the rest of the rewards transferring to Delegators. The annual emission in The Graph network is set to 3%.<br><br>There is no slashing risk for delegators but the current Indexer slashing percentage is at 2.5%.</p><p><a href="https://p2p.org">P2P Validator</a> currently has the largest Graph Network Indexer globally, with a 33M GRT balance and 530M GRT capacity.

Flow P2P Validator Joins FLOW as a Node Operator

<p>Crypto-collectibles are currently gaining a lot of traction and the demand for non-fungible tokens (NFT) spiked with<a href="https://nonfungible.com/market/history"> over $2M weekly volume</a>. <strong>NFTs represent a proof-of-ownership for a unique asset that can be used to exchange in-game assets, to define copyrights for publishers or proof of authenticity by digital art creators.</strong> In 2017, the Cryptokitties game on Ethereum was the most popular blockchain enabled consumer application that revealed the hidden potential of crypto-collectibles. Three years later, it still remains one of the largest NFT games by sales volume.</p><p>Due to Ethereum scaling limitations and aggravating user experience, the team behind CryptoKitties spent the last two years in R&amp;D to build a new blockchain platform that could address mainstream consumer scale needs, while offering an unparalleled user experience. Flow is a new blockchain built for the next generation of apps, games, and the digital assets that power them.</p><p>Flow is designed for better user experience with multi-role architecture that allows the achievement of speed improvements without sharding, ensuring composability of applications. Resource oriented programming and upgradeable smart-contracts provide flexibility for developers. Flow uses proof-of-stake achieving relatively fast transaction finality. Though Flow is a multi-purpose general blockchain not limited to any specific use-case, <strong>it has the potential to become the leading platform for building decentralized gaming applications and power the growth of crypto-collectible economies.</strong></p><p><em>With that in mind, P2P Validator is excited to announce the launch of Collector, Verification and Consensus nodes to increase Flow decentralization as part of our commitment to support the development of open and censorship-resistant collectible economies.</em></p><p><strong>If you are interested in staking with us follow a few simple steps from our <a href="https://economy.p2p.org/flow-ledger-delegation-guide/?utm_source=flow_annoncement&amp;utm_campaign=flow_guide">staking guide</a>.</strong></p><p>Our team has extensive experience in setting up secure infrastructure. P2P Validator maintains high-availability nodes and provides secure staking services for the most groundbreaking projects in the blockchain space. <strong>We are an early Flow investor having our own skin in the game.</strong> The node infrastructure is under advanced monitoring with 24/7 technical support, backups and alerts.</p><h3 id="about-flow"><strong>About Flow</strong></h3><p>Flow is a novel developer-friendly blockchain that is perfectly fitted for games and digital assets powering collectible economies.

NuCypher NuCypher Brief Overview

<p>NuCypher is a decentralized secret management network where a group of nodes (workers) perform proxy re-encryption to manage permissions on encrypted data instead of a centralized server. It allows safe data exchange without ability for proxies to learn the plain text info. Correctness of worker behavior is guaranteed by staking and cryptographic proofs. Additional token emission incentivizes node operators to maintain high availability infrastructure and in the case of network rules violation a portion of their holdings will be slashed.</p><h3 id="current-state-and-market-potential"><strong>Current state and market potential</strong></h3><p>NuCypher mainnet successfully launched on 15th October 2020 allowing token holders to stake their NU.</p><p>Privacy of sensitive data is a vexed problem and services provided by NuCypher project are attractive and valuable not only in crypto space. The highest growth of<a href="https://www.statista.com/statistics/798564/number-of-us-residents-affected-by-data-breaches/"> data breaches in USA</a> was in the healthcare sector demonstrating 80% increase from 2017 to 2019 including the transmission of confidential data without proper encryption.</p><p>Enterprises also are seeking ways to avoid data leaks and securely manage and share sensitive data.<a href="https://www.marketresearchfuture.com/reports/key-management-service-market-8188"> The Global Key Management as a Service Market</a> market size is expected to grow from $363 million in 2018 to $1,28 billion by 2023 and is estimated to reach $2,29 billion by 2025 during the period 2019–2025.</p><h3 id="token-allocation"><strong>Token allocation</strong></h3><p>NuCypher raised $750k in 2016 ; $4.3 million in 2017 and $10,7 million in 2018.

At the start rewards from providing re-encryptions might be low so until the project gets traction, node operators will be incentivized mostly by emission of new tokens. <strong>Holders can delegate their funds and earn a share of rewards in proportion to their stake.</strong></p><p><strong>Compensation is higher when tokens are locked for a longer period.</strong> To get maximum compensation stakers have to lock their funds for at least a year to be allowed to accept policies with longer terms. Shorter commitment will result in lower rewards for participants and they will not be allowed to provide re-encryption if the length of a particular policy is higher than chosen lock-up period. <strong>Staking since the beginning of mainnet with compounding of rewards also will result in higher returns.</strong> The whole stake can be split into sub-stakes where each will have its own lock-up period.</p><p>In existing representation only one staker can delegate to a worker in near future, staker can be a smart contract that accepts delegations from various addresses. We believe in future adoption of NuCypher and will provide the long term staking maximizing staking rewards.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/10/table-14.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1368" height="668" srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/10/table-14.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2020/10/table-14.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/10/table-14.png 1368w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><h3 id="native-token"><strong>Native token</strong></h3><p>NuCypher token NU is ERC20 token the main purpose of which is to act as a staking token in the network with limited liquidity and low volatility. Amount of provided re-encryptions will be proportional to stake which is guaranteed to be locked at the end time of the policy. Node operators with higher stake presuming higher loss in case of bad behavior and ability to accept policies with longer terms.</p><p>NuCypher based on Ethereum blockchain means that users should have ETH on the worker node’s address to pay tx fees. Workers also share service fees paid by end users in ETH for providing re-encryptions.</p><p>Over 350 000 ETH were locked in the smart contract by participants to take part in<a href="https://blog.nucypher.com/the-worklock/"> WorkLock token distribution model</a> proposed by NuCypher team.</p><h3 id="slashing-risks"><strong>Slashing risks</strong></h3><p>There are two potential slashing conditions:</p><ul><li>Providing incorrect responses</li><li>Continuous downtime</li></ul><p>At network genesis, the protocol will be able to detect and attribute instances of incorrect re-encryptions. If there are many sub-stakes and misbehavior occurs, unlocked tokens which do not participate in staking will be slashed in the first place and then ascending sub-stakes with lower lock-ups.</p><p>A false re-encryption is not like a double-sign. Correctness of a re-encryption can be proved via a zero-knowledge proof. If users receive incorrect re-encryption, they can provide this proof to the network, which will result in the node getting slashed. <strong>For each violation, 2×10−18 NU tokens will be deleted from the offender’s stake</strong>. <br><br>In the future, slashing parameters can be changed by the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) that is managed by NU stakeholders who operate nodes. It makes NuCypher a community driven project from the very beginning.</p><p>At network launch slashing for worker unavailability is turned off until it will be enabled by the DAO if needed. <strong>Stakers will not receive inflation rewards for any period the node is offline</strong>.

Oasis Oasis - Network Overview

<p>Oasis protocol is a decentralized privacy-preserving platform for cloud computing that allows safe data sharing and ownership enabling computationally complex applications. Oasis provides confidentiality at every layer of the protocol. The network is secured by proof-of-stake where the rectitude of validators responsible for consensus and nodes providing computations is provided by slashing in case of misbehavior. At the outset, validators are incentivized by gradually decreasing emission schedule and transaction fees.</p><h3 id="current-state-and-market-potential"><strong>Current state and market potential</strong></h3><p>Oasis team plans to launch Mainnet Beta (fully featured network with disabled transfers) soon after Mainnet Dry Run that is launched to ensure that the network is healthy.</p><p><a href="https://www.gartner.com/en/newsroom/press-releases/2019-04-02-gartner-forecasts-worldwide-public-cloud-revenue-to-g">Gartner projects</a> the market size and growth of the cloud services industry at nearly three time the growth of overall IT services by 2022.

Validators will have to change operating address and attract delegations to participate in consensus. There is <strong><strong>no slash for liveness or uptime at launch</strong></strong>, but a node would need to sign at least 75% of blocks in the epoch to receive corresponding rewards.</p><h3 id="about-p2p-validator"><strong><strong>About P2P Validator</strong></strong></h3><p><a href="https://p2p.org/">P2P Validator</a> is a world-leading non-custodial staking provider securing more than $3 billion trusted by over 10,000 delegators across 25+ high-class networks.

Avalanche How to delegate your AVAX using Avalanche wallet

<p>Avalabs has just launched its main network so AVAX holders can now participate in staking and earn rewards.</p><blockquote><em><em>Please keep in mind that the data in the screenshots are taken from the test network.</em></em></blockquote><h2 id="what-do-i-need-to-do-to-start-delegating-my-avax"><strong>What do I need to do to start delegating my AVAX?</strong></h2><p>At the time of writing the only known wallet that will support AVAX delegation immediately after Everest starts is the official Avalanche wallet.

Polkadot P2P.ORG received grant for Multi-blockchain ETL for Polkadot and Filecoin

<h4 id="7th-september-2020-p2p-validator-is-delighted-to-announce-their-grant-work-on-connecting-the-polkadot-and-filecoin-ecosystems-by-creating-an-etl-solution-with-unified-api-together-with-web3-foundation-and-protocol-labs-"><strong>7th September 2020 - P2P Validator is delighted to announce their grant work on connecting the Polkadot and Filecoin ecosystems by creating an ETL solution with unified API , together with Web3 Foundation and Protocol Labs.</strong></h4><p>Over the past few years, the world has seen the rise of blockchain interoperability; with the attraction DeFi tools and platforms are getting nowadays, the idea of making the blockchain world more interoperable has become ingrained. The blockchain ecosystem has already attracted thousands of software developers working on different things - applications, wallets, dashboards, explorers - but by inserting interoperability into this equation brings an additional challenge.</p><p>Imagine a situation where a user moves a chain A asset through bridge B to parachain X to open a Collateralized Debt Position (CDP), then uses received stablecoin to long a synthetic asset from parachain D on a margin trade chain E. Ten years ago this could sound like nonsense - but this is a reality now. To make efficient applications that would allow this behavior - the developers need appropriate tools.</p><p><em><em>"Default blockchain node interfaces are usually unsuited for complex or historical data queries. That makes building application on top of blockchains a complicated affair - you need to build your own data layer first. Interchain communication aggravets that problem even more"</em></em>, says Vasiliy Shapovalov, CTO of P2P Validator. <em><em>"Our goal is to exctract, clean, enrich, transform, and serve the blockchain data in way that will allow users to to merge several application-specific interchain requests in the single one."</em></em></p><p>To begin this journey, we've decided to create an ETL solution for blockchains with a GraphQL API for the collected data. The solution aims to add value and decrease development costs for every company or individual who is working on application development. GraphQL as an API query language has been chosen to unify the data interface to simplify the development process and provide the best quality real-time data for applications.</p><p>As a validator, we have a unique opportunity to develop such a system:</p><ul><li>we have developed our dashboards and other tools that require a deep dive into specific blockchain's architecture</li><li>blockchain node management does not add costs to the solution as we already maintain them</li><li>we are familiar with a variety of blockchains</li><li>we are trusted by more than 2000 users staking their assets with us</li></ul><p>Although our ultimate goal is to provide a high-quality data source for lots of blockchains, we've chosen Polkadot and Filecoin to be the pioneers in this project. We would love to see services that would utilize this solution and supply a justified demand for more blockchains to be added as data sources.</p><p><em><em>“We are excited to work together with Protocol Labs and P2P validator to create an interoperability-first data warehouse across all kinds of different blockchains. This will make it easier to integrate with different blockchains and ultimately help the entire ecosystem ”</em></em>, says David Hawig, Grants Lead at Web3 Foundation.</p><p><em><em>"In collaboration with Web3 Foundation we’re delighted to support P2P Validator as they build an ETL solution to simplify the process of building wallets, dashboards, explorers and apps that interact with multiple blockchains connected through interchain communication protocol"</em></em>, says Eva Shon, Grants Coordinator at Protocol Labs.</p><p>Stay in touch with us and visit our website and GitHub to know more!</p><h3 id="about-web3-foundation"><strong>About Web3 Foundation</strong></h3><p><a href="https://web3.foundation/">Web3 Foundation</a> funds research and development teams building the technology stack of the decentralized web.

Cardano When will I start receiving my ADA rewards?

<h1 id="when-will-i-start-receiving-my-ada-rewards"><strong>When will I start receiving my ADA rewards?</strong></h1><p>Many of our community members have been asking around when they could start receiving rewards from delegated stake.

Polkadot Polkadot overview for newcomers

<h1 id="polkadot-overview-for-newcomers"><strong>Polkadot overview for newcomers</strong></h1><p><em><em>August 18th, 2020</em></em> - Polkadot almost became a fully-operational network by reaching the 4th of five milestones - opening transfers between accounts. The network is expected to finish the rollout plan this autumn by enabling parachain auctions and cross-chain interaction protocol, but, which might be important for newcomers, now you can legally buy and sell DOT tokens. If you are someone who missed the original 2017 and small 2020 sale but still are interested - this article is for you.</p><h2 id="which-wallets-to-use"><strong>Which wallets to use?</strong></h2><p>We recommend starting exploring Polkadot with official <a href="https://polkadot.js.org/apps/#/accounts">Polkadot.js browser wallet</a> (you would also need to install <a href="https://github.com/polkadot-js/extension">polkadot.js browser plugin</a>). This is the official wallet supported by Web3 Foundation that provides all possible opportunities for DOT users. If you are not a fan of desktop wallets, you can just walk through all tabs and get a good overview of Polkadot. The full list of supported wallets can be found <a href="https://wiki.polkadot.network/docs/en/build-wallets">here</a>.</p><p>You will notice that a lot of them are in the development stage, but the following ones are fully functional:</p><ul><li><a href="https://www.parity.io/signer/">Parity Signer</a></li><li><a href="https://lunie.io/">Lunie</a></li><li><a href="https://polkawallet.io/">Polkawallet</a></li><li><a href="https://token.im/">ImToken</a></li><li><a href="https://www.mathwallet.org/polkadot-wallet/en/">Math wallet</a></li></ul><p>Please note that the wallets may not provide full functionality (e.g., Democracy, Council voting, Extrinsic, etc.) - but all of them support transfers and staking.</p><h2 id="where-to-buy-dot"><strong>Where to buy DOT?</strong></h2><p>Generally, we don’t give advice on the exchange as your experience may differ based on the country of your residence or KYC/AML procedures. As you’re reading this page, we believe you are already a crypto person and you don’t need common advice like picking a trusted exchange. But there’s one thing you may not be familiar with:</p><p><strong><strong>On August 21st, Polkadot will go through the redenomination process. It means the “old” DOT will be equal to 100 “new” DOTs. This was the choice of community - you can read more in the <a href="https://polkadot.network/the-results-are-in/">official post</a>. This change will not be done by changing any core code - from 21st 1 DOT will be equal to 10^10 Plancks (the smallest fraction of DOT), while now it’s 10^12 Plancks. If you buy your DOT now, you will just see 100x more DOT on your balance after 21st.</strong></strong></p><h2 id="how-to-create-an-account"><strong>How to create an account?</strong></h2><p>Please use <a href="https://economy.p2p.org/create-account-in-polkadot-network">our guide</a>. The whole process will take several minutes.</p><h2 id="how-to-nominate"><strong>How to nominate?</strong></h2><p>We have a general <a href="https://economy.p2p.org/polkadot-nomination-guide">guide on nominating</a>. Here are some additional tips that you might find helpful:</p><ul><li>You can nominate from 1 to 16 validators from one account. The validator election mechanism will distribute your stake to validators in an optimal way (generally, for one validator). We recommend to nominate trusted validators as the right selection will provide better yield and protect you from <a href="https://economy.p2p.org/Polkadot-overview-for-newcomers#what-is-slashing-and-how-does-it-work">slashing</a>.</li><li>Your nomination status will update every day (around 1PM CET - when the validator election happens). The meaning of each status: <em><em>Active - your nomination is working, and one of the validators you’ve chosen is in the active validator set. Everything is OK. </em></em>Inactive - it is OK to have some inactive nomination while you have at least one active - it means that your nomination is working, but some of the validators you’ve chosen are not in the active set. <em><em>Waiting - you will see this status if you’ve made a nomination but the elections haven’t happened yet. Don’t worry, just wait for the validator elections to be held. </em></em>Renomination needed - this signals you that you need an update of your nomination.</li><li>Bonding and unbonding <em><em>Bonding means you’re locking your funds to work in staking. While funds are locked, you can make nominations, update them, vote, etc. To make your funds liquid you should go through unbonding. </em></em>Unbonding might be performed when you want to stop nominating and move or sell your DOTs. Please be careful - the unbonding period for Polkadot is 28 days, so basically you won’t be able to transfer or stake your DOTs for almost a month!</li><li>Controller account is a special account that might be linked with your primary account (stash in terms of Polkadot) to perform some actions (e.g., staking). It is good practice to have a controller account connected to your stash and don’t touch the last one without a significant reason. What is more important, you can basically share your controller account with 3rd parties to perform staking while keeping your stash keys with you and your funds will be safe!</li></ul><p>For those of you who have more than 50000 DOT we have a <a href="https://economy.p2p.org/polkadot-nomination-strategies/#p2p-validator-special-offer">special offer</a>!</p><h2 id="how-do-rewards-work"><strong>How do rewards work?</strong></h2><p>At the moment, Polkadot provides around 14-15% APR on your stake. The following things might influence your profit:</p><ul><li>Validator fee. The average validator fee is around 3%.</li><li>Luck. The profit for each validator is proportional to the number of blocks produced during the era. These numbers will be equal in the long run, but for some days you may notice a bit more or a bit less profit than predicted - so basically you should not worry about this.</li><li>Total stake on the node. Polkadot provides staking rewards that are almost equal for every validator. After that, the validator automatically distributes the profit for the nominators after taking a validator fee. So, nominating to the validator that has 2M DOT in nominations will bring you twice as much as nominating the one with 4M DOT in nominations.</li><li>Overall validator performance. In the real world, different validators have different hardware resources, connectivity, etc. - all of these factors may affect nominators’ profitability.</li><li>Slashing penalties. <a href="https://economy.p2p.org/Polkadot-overview-for-newcomers#what-is-slashing-and-how-does-it-work">Please take a note on slashing and how it works in Polkadot</a>.</li></ul><p><strong><strong>Please use our <a href="https://economy.p2p.org/polkadot-nomination-strategies">article with nomination strategies</a> that are based on the stake you hold</strong></strong></p><p>Other important points on the rewards:</p><ul><li>Rewards are distributed each era (24 hours for Polkadot).</li><li>By default, the rewards are not claimed automatically. This can be done either by you or by your nominated validator. P2P Validator is periodically claiming rewards for our nominators, so you should not worry about this if you nominate us.</li></ul><h2 id="what-is-slashing-and-how-does-it-work"><strong>What is slashing and how does it work?</strong></h2><p>Slashing is a penalty mechanism that provides economic incentives for validators to play fair and nominators to choose the right validators. Slashing is triggered when a validator makes a double sign or more than 10% of the network goes offline. This can also happen because of a software bug. In such cases, the slashes are applied after 28 days and can be canceled by democracy voting.</p><p>As the slashing is applied to both validator and its nominators, you may lose some portion of your stake. To minimize risks to be slashed:</p><ul><li>Select 16 validators in your nomination.</li><li>Select only the validators you know and trust.</li><li>Don’t try to make maximum profits - staking is a marathon, not a sprint. The risk of losing a portion of your stake might outweigh the better profitability of an unknown validator.</li></ul><h2 id="what-resources-to-use-or-follow"><strong>What resources to use or follow?</strong></h2><p>For all newcomers to Polkadot ecosystem, we recommend the following resources:</p><ul><li>Our <a href="https://economy.p2p.org/category/polkadot/">blog articles about Polkadot</a></li><li>Join the <a href="https://t.me/PolkadotOfficial">official Polkadot group on telegram</a></li><li>Join the <a href="https://matrix.to/#/!FdCojkeGzZLSEoiecf:web3.foundation?via=matrix.parity.io&amp;via=matrix.org&amp;via=web3.foundation">community group in Element</a></li><li>Use the official <a href="https://wiki.polkadot.network/docs/en/getting-started">wiki of the project</a></li><li>Get familiar with Polkadot in action using <a href="https://polkadot.js.org/apps/#/accounts">Polkadot.js</a></li><li>Use <a href="https://polkascan.io/polkadot">Polkascan</a> or <a href="https://www.subscan.io/">Subscan</a> to dive deeper in addresses and transactions</li><li>Give <a href="https://kusama.network/">Kusama</a> network, a wild cousin of Polkadot, a try</li></ul><h2 id="about-p2p-validator"><strong>About P2P Validator</strong></h2><p><a href="https://p2p.org/?utm_source=blog&amp;utm_campaign=polkadot_for_newcomers">P2P Validator</a> is a world-leading non-custodial staking provider with the best industry practices and proven expertise.

<p>While validators in Polkadot work together as the heart of the ecosystem - validate transactions, build the blockchain itself, and maintain network security, nominators supply the blood - they delegate their tokens to the validators they trust and therefore receive rewards and provide supply to the blockchain economy. So, what's the best strategy for a nominator? How to be sure your funds are safe and working at their maximum? We've gathered some strategies that might be useful for you based on the stake you have.</p><h1 id="500k-dots-and-more-"><strong>500K DOTs and more.</strong></h1><p>You hold a large number of tokens, and the rewards you can get are pretty high (in absolute numbers). Here are some thoughts that you might find useful:</p><ul><li>The right nomination strategy can add several additional points to your APR, while with the wrong one you can receive only half of the potential profit. "Nominate once and relax" won't work for you because the fluctuations of nominations on the network can change the position of validators you've chosen drastically.</li><li>Selecting the most profitable validators in polkadot.js UI might not be a good idea because your stake is significant enough to change the position of validators in terms of profitability.</li><li>To make the best choice of validator, you should make predictions on the next validator set for each era, which requires development resources and a deep understanding of Polkadot validator election mechanisms.</li></ul><p>All this can make you think that it's almost impossible to get the maximum from your stake. <strong><strong>Luckily, you're reading this text on p2p.org. We're a top-tier validator and can make this happen because of our vast amount of experience accumulated in Kusama and Polkadot.</strong></strong></p><h3 id="p2p-validator-special-offer-"><strong>P2P Validator special offer:</strong></h3><ul><li>Optimized regular nominations to get maximum yield</li><li>Direct support by chat or video call</li><li>Weekly reports on profitability</li><li>Reports for tax authorities on demand</li><li>An immediate reaction in case of active set increases and other changes that can potentially affect your staking rewards.</li></ul><p><strong><strong>All the mentioned benefits are available for you without any additional fees. Contact us via <a href="mailto:[email protected]">email</a> or <a href="https://t.me/P2Pstaking">join our telegram group</a> to know more.</strong></strong></p><h1 id="50k-500k-dots"><strong>50K - 500K DOTs</strong></h1><p>We can bet you care about your profits, so you may develop this strategy by yourself - monitor the staking daily and update your nomination to choose the best validators. But the question is - how to choose reliable validator nodes and get maximum rewards from them? Here are some thoughts:</p><ul><li>Your stake is still significant enough not to use the automatic validator selection on polkadot.js - you're still able to push the specific node from the top profitability position.</li><li>Try not to update your nomination right after the election happens. The same reason being as for the point above - your nomination changes the landscape, so the best time to make an update is about noon CET.</li></ul><p>Feel free to use a <a href="https://redash.p2p.org/public/dashboards/cviD6Ci7oUDRnSoq8CqNJImrJfq8uuY37DsiF2CY?org_slug=default">dashboard</a> that predicts the next validator set and was designed to find out the best targets for nominations.</p><p><strong><strong>If you plan to continue staking Polkadot and would contact us during the upcoming month - we are happy to tell you are also able to receive a special offer for 500K+ stakes. Contact us via <a href="mailto:[email protected]">email</a> or <a href="https://t.me/P2Pstaking">join our telegram group</a> to know more</strong></strong></p><h1 id="10k-50k-dots"><strong>10K-50K DOTs</strong></h1><p>With a stake in this range, you might be interested in increasing profits, but paying too much attention to staking would not cover the costs of your time. The best approach would be to make a nomination and come back, check and update nomination if needed in a week or two. Here are some thoughts that might help you to make the right choice of validator:</p><ul><li>Choose nodes from a validator you know and can reach in case you have any questions. Polkadot network is permissionless - that means anyone can be a validator. The malicious behavior of a validator results in a punishment (slashing in terms of Polkadot) - which is a lot more harmful to the nominator than the validator.</li><li>If you're using polkadot.js, be careful over choosing validators automatically. This mechanism relies only on the current state of nominations and fees - and tells you nothing about specific validator quality.</li></ul><p>Use the <a href="https://p2p.org/polkadot?utm_source=blog&amp;utm_campaign=polkadot_nomination_strategies">p2p.org/polkadot</a> web page to find out the best target addresses supported by P2P Validator.</p><h1 id="0-10k-dots"><strong>0-10K DOTs</strong></h1><p>You don't have enough dots to earn a lot - but that also brings you an advantage - your stake does not significantly change a selected validator's profitability, so there is no need to pay much attention to nominations. The best strategy for you would be to choose around eight top-performing validators from the active set and the rest from the waiting list based on your feelings. We encourage you to put a bet on both big names in validation and include smaller independent validators who are active in community chats.</p><h1 id="general-thoughts"><strong>General thoughts</strong></h1><p>According to Polkadot network rules, you can choose up to 16 validators in your nomination, and an automated election algorithm will do the rest. It looks like a perfect solution - to nominate once and relax, but there are some pitfalls that might affect your profits:</p><ul><li>Validators you've nominated might not be elected to the active validator set. This situation might occur if the other nominators that chose the same validators as you will renominate to other nodes. In this case, you're entirely missing any profit - and will continue to miss it until you make a new nomination or other people help your validators reach the active validator set.</li><li>Validators you've nominated become extremely popular and receive many nominations. In this case, you're getting profits on your stake, but they are not optimal. Here's a simple explanation: the reward each validator receives is almost equal for all active validators in the long term. The more nominated stake a specific validator has, the less each nominator gets. Some validators have nominations for 2M, some for 4M DOTs - as a result, the profits for their nominators differ twice!</li><li>There is a small chance the nodes you've nominated would go offline. If you nominate 16, the chance all of them would be down is meager - but it exists.</li></ul><p>The risks of not paying attention to the actual state of nomination in Polkadot can result in losing profits (partially or even completely). <strong><strong>To mitigate our nominators' risks, P2P Validator supplies new validator nodes when the demand for them is growing.</strong></strong></p><p><strong><strong>Why else should you nominate P2P Validator?</strong></strong></p><ul><li>We've invested our own funds in Polkadot &amp; ecosystem and stake them via the public validator nodes - the same as you do</li><li>We have a dedicated DevOps and development team with a tremendous amount of experience across Polkadot and other blockchains</li><li>We were the first ones to run validators in both Polkadot and Kusama</li><li>We've achieved top-notch profitability for our nominators in Kusama and have a good track record.</li></ul><p><strong><strong>How to nominate P2P?

Polkadot Polkadot Council elections: vote for P2P Validator

<p>After the first council elections and removal of sudo module Polkadot will become a permissionless chain fully governed by the community. Every DOT holder can submit a proposal and suggest parameter changes such as increasing the validator set and many more.</p><p><strong><strong>P2P Validator is excited to announce our Council candidacy</strong></strong>. We have supported both Polkadot and Kusama networks from the very beginning, and, as a result, received more than 50,000,000 DOTs from 250+ users as nominations. As a Council member, we promise to act in the interests of the Polkadot community.</p><h2 id="why-you-should-vote-for-p2p-validator"><strong>Why you should vote for P2P Validator</strong></h2><ul><li>We have a proven track record of 2+ years in the validation business across different networks</li><li>We are active participants in the governance of most groundbreaking blockchains</li><li>We've invested our funds in Polkadot &amp; ecosystem and stake them via the public validator nodes</li><li>We have a dedicated development team and participate in W3F General Grants Program</li><li>We are always open for community requests</li></ul><p><strong><strong><a href="https://economy.p2p.org/Polkadot-Council-elections-vote-for-P2P-Validator#how-to-vote">Press here to find detailed instructions on voting.</a></strong></strong></p><h2 id="role-of-a-council-member"><strong>Role of a council member</strong></h2><p>Efficient governance implies an active participation of stakeholders, which is always limited to some extent. It requires continuous monitoring of new proposals and taking actions to check that the outcome is not harmful for the ecosystem. Sometimes, token holders miss the right moment or simply prefer not to participate in voting for various reasons. Councils in Polkadot represent passive stakeholders and have a crucial role in the governance affecting the way of approving/rejecting proposals.</p><p><strong><strong>Some of their capabilities:</strong></strong></p><ul><li>Accept or reject treasury spending proposals</li><li>Propose a referendum and change its bias</li><li>Cast "veto" on a malicious proposal</li><li>Cancel slashes that are in a queue for application</li></ul><p>Initially there are 13 councilors, the number will gradually grow to 23. Elections initially happen once a day. Later, elections will occur on a weekly basis and eventually monthly. Every token holder can pick up to 16 candidates. Stake-weighted votes are distributed automatically based on the Phragmen method the same way as nominating validators. <strong><strong>Tokens involved in staking count in the selection of Council members</strong></strong>. The vote is considered valid until canceled via extrinsic. Before that DOT are frozen (becoming non-transferable). <strong><strong>Unlike unbonding, there is no specific period to wait before unfreezing and they become unlocked and transferable right after submitting a corresponding transaction.</strong></strong></p><h2 id="the-mission-of-p2p-validator-as-a-council-member"><strong>The mission of P2P Validator as a council member</strong></h2><p><strong><strong>Very simply, we can describe our mission as a council member as follows: to protect the interests of nominators and validators.</strong></strong></p><p>Although nominators and validators have different roles in the ecosystem, we find that many points are valid for both:</p><ul><li>Nominators and validators own and earn a certain amount of tokens and are interested in network ecosystem growth.</li><li>Nominators' stake and validators' future profits are in a non-liquid state, so both would not welcome any change that would result in a negative change in value of their holdings.</li><li>In some cases, nominators and small independent validators may not have enough time or expertise to analyze the proposed changes and make a considered conclusion in voting for or against.</li></ul><p>So, what exactly are we going to do as a council member?</p><ul><li>Dive as deep as we can into any proposal that is put to the council</li><li>Publicly express our opinion regarding the proposals clearly stating the expected results for both nominators and validators</li><li>Collect opinions from both validators and nominators</li><li>Discuss it with other council members and vote based on the opinions we've got from the community</li><li>Issue regular reports on the network development direction based on the proposals and discussions in the council</li></ul><h2 id="how-to-vote"><strong>How to vote</strong></h2><p>1.

NuCypher NuCypher Worker Node Monitoring Suite

<p>As part of the Technical Contributor Phase of NuCypher’s <a href="https://blog.nucypher.com/come-and-stake-it-incentivized-testnet/?utm_source=p2peconomy">Come And Stake It (CASI) Incentivized Testnet</a>, <a href="https://p2p.org/?utm_source=blog&amp;utm_medium=economy&amp;utm_campaign=NuCypher-monitoring">P2P Validator</a> has collaborated with <a href="http://www.nucypher.com/">NuCypher</a> to provide an inexpensive and powerful <a href="https://github.com/p2p-org/nucypher-monitoring">suite of self-hosted NuCypher node monitoring and alerting services</a> using Prometheus and Grafana. This suite is free and open-sourced so that anyone can make use of it to manage their NuCypher node infrastructure.</p><h2 id="the-need"><strong>The Need</strong></h2><p>The NuCypher Network is a decentralized network of nodes that uses proxy re-encryption to provide secrets management and dynamic access control services. The network facilitates end-to-end encrypted data sharing between parties without exposing plaintext data or private keys to the nodes.</p><p>NuCypher nodes are incentivized to maintain high uptime and availability to readily provide re-encryption services. Persistent downtime will cause nodes to forgo inflation rewards and policy fees. Therefore, identification and resolution of availability issues quickly is a requirement. This solution is aimed at those who independently set up and run the Worker according to the <a href="https://docs.nucypher.com/en/latest/guides/network_node/network_node.html">NuCypher documentation</a>, but who do not have enough experience to implement monitoring and alerting on their own. After successfully running a Worker node, the user should be able to check the state of their node and receive timely alerts about issues that need to be addressed immediately.</p><h2 id="the-solution"><strong>The Solution</strong></h2><p>Our goal was to provide a seamless setup, simple configuration and enable the user to obtain up-to-date information about their ongoing node operations and the broader NuCypher network. We implemented a Worker endpoint that provides various node metrics and a Grafana dashboard to allow users to visualize these metrics and assess the state of their node.</p><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/1-2.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1240" height="444" srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/1-2.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/1-2.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/1-2.png 1240w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><figure class="kg-card kg-image-card"><img src="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/2-4.png" class="kg-image" alt loading="lazy" width="1240" height="780" srcset="https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w600/2020/09/2-4.png 600w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/size/w1000/2020/09/2-4.png 1000w, https://economy.p2p.org/content/images/2020/09/2-4.png 1240w" sizes="(min-width: 720px) 720px"></figure><p>Metrics include:</p><ul><li>CPU / RAM / Disk / Network utilization</li><li>Realtime data on node workload</li><li>Account balances</li><li>Staker information</li><li>WorkLock status</li></ul><p>Furthermore, alerts can be provisioned based on these metrics through the dashboard to send timely messages when notable issues arise.
