Fantom Staker Info

Christian Lanz
Jan 14 · 2 min read

A dapp on Fantom Opera to browse information about the network and its validators.

Our Mission

Our goal with this dapp is to provide delegators with reliable information about the network and all its validators to help token holders to choose the “right” validator to stake to. Most importantly we want to do that in an easy way.

Why reliable?

The information you see comes from a smart contract which is deployed on the Fantom Opera MainNet and only validators can edit their own information!

All our code is open source and can be found in our GitHub repository:

For all of you running validators yourself, please head over to GitHub where you find the instructions to submit your info to the smart contract!

The smart contract can be found on the Fantom Opera MainNet at this address:

0x92ffad75b8a942d149621a39502cdd8ad1dd57b4

How to select a great validator?

We believe its important to know the validator team you stake your FTM to. Therefore we don’t recommend staking to unknown validators (as shown in the dapp), but to validators you can identify. Check the validators website, join its Telegram group, message them and learn more about the team. If you are tech-savvy also ask them about their node setup, etc.

⚠️ Watch out for marked validators which can be cheaters as well as validators that are withdrawing their stake!

If you don’t want to do so much research about the validators, you could also simply go by the most important metric in our opinion:

  • Self-Staked — The validators “Skin-in-the-Game” (the more, the better)

What you can contribute

First, ask your validator(s) to submit their information to our dapp so it’s available for more people. All validators that have already done so are marked with the green check symbol beside their name.

🔥 Last but not least, if you like what we do, please support us by staking your FTM with us — block42, Validator #14 — so we can keep on doing awesome stuff! 🙂

Support

We plan on adding more infos and features in the future, but therefore we also need your help and input. So if you have any questions, ideas, etc. do not hesitate to join our validator group, contact me directly and open issues on GitHub.
