Become a validator and get tokens.

Without validators, the Solana cluster cannot exist. Help maintain the integrity of the ledger and earn rewards while doing so.


Protocol Based Rewards

Issuances from a global, protocol-defined, inflation rate. These rewards will constitute the total reward delivered to replication and validation clients, the remaining sourced from transaction fees.

Transaction Fees

Transaction fees are market-based p2p transfers, attached to network interactions for a state execution or proof-of-replication verification.

Stakers are rewarded for helping to validate the ledger. They do this by delegating their stake to validator nodes. Those validators do the legwork of replaying the ledger and send votes to a per-node vote account to which stakers can delegate their stakes. The rest of the cluster uses those stake-weighted votes to select a block when forks arise.
