To help the community members learn more about the validators on IRISnet, we are publishing a series of articles, each of which will cover two validators.
When choosing a validator to delegate, technical parameters such as self-bonded (the higher the better), uptime (the higher the better), commission rate (the lower the better), bond height(the lower the better)etc are good KPIs to review to get a 360-degree view on the validators’ performance. It is always a good practice to select multiple validators to hedge the delegation risk.
Here come the stories on Chainlayer and Ping.
