Host a public staking node

Hosted staking allows IDEX node operators to open their nodes to other IDEX holders. In return, hosted node operators receive a portion of the staking earnings from any additional IDEX tokens delegated to their node.
For node operators:
  • Operate an open node and earn additional staking rewards
  • Set a custom fee rate to determine the percentage of rewards earned
Hosted staking is a free market, as node operators are able to set the fees on their nodes as they wish. Node operators are capped at a fee of 10%. If a node operator changes their fee the change will not go into effect until the next staking period.

Step 1

First setup your staking node. Please see the detailed guide if you need assistance.

Step 2

After setting up your node navigate to the Run a node tab on Staking.

Step 3

Change your node privacy to public, apply a fee and click save. The fee you chose will be the fee charged to users who delegate to your node. The fees come from their staking earnings.

Step 4

Confirm your node is public by switching to the delegate tab. Your node should appear under hosts offering their node for delegating.
