Decentralized financial technology is growing at a rapid pace. New solutions are constantly emerging that make it easier for users to interact with cryptoservices and reduce their transaction costs.

Everstake has launched a new Baker in the Tezos blockchain network, as many things changed in the network over the past year. Let’s see why this is good and what it means for XTZ token delegators.

Why did Everstake launch Baker #2?

The Everstake validator has added a new Baker to the Tezos network to improve security measures and allow XTZ token holders to control risks better when managing their portfolios.

This corresponds to the ideology of a decentralized market where there is no single point of failure. This is the principle that Everstake strives to follow. An additional Baker makes the staking service more stable, so it is crucial to redelegate coins to the new Baker.

Why is it worth it to redelegate tokens to a new Baker?

In the new Baker, Everstake pays part of the fee for the remuneration of delegators, and after delegating XTZ tokens to the new Baker, the reward for staking will become higher. The fee for accruing tokens on the old Baker will increase to 15% from August 1 (2020) and grow by 2% every month. Starting from cycle 350, we are going to increase the commission on the old Baker to 27%. We kindly remind you that it’s quite important that all the delegators redelegate all their assets to the new Baker. Unfortunately, we have to do it because of the great Tezos amount blocked on our old Baker. We plan to transfer all bonds of the old Baker to the new Baker, but we can’t do it because of old Baker’s delegators.

Thus the fee will be:

  • 1.09.2020–15%

Note! Since the 1st of September 2021, we pay your attention that Everstake will take a 100% fee from the old Baker delegators. It means that you won’t be accrued any rewards. The only way to get rewards is to redelegate to the new Baker with an 8% fee.

Information about the new Baker for delegation is provided below.
