Polkadot Nomination Strategies

Post preview image

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.

500K DOTs and more.

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:

All this can make you think that it's almost impossible to get the maximum from your stake. 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.

50K - 500K DOTs

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:

10K-50K DOTs

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:

0-10K DOTs

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.

General thoughts

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:

The risks of not paying attention to the actual state of nomination in Polkadot can result in losing profits (partially or even completely). To mitigate our nominators' risks, P2P Validator supplies new validator nodes when the demand for them is growing.

Why else should you nominate P2P Validator?

P2P statistics in Kusama

We have accumulated a huge amount of experience in staking Kusama and continue this story in Polkadot. The graph below shows the profits for a nominator with 1000 KSM with P2P Validator and other validators*.

*Other validators’ profits are calculated based on the average weighted commission rate of 7,5%, average stake amongst all validators, and current staking ratio.
