One of our top priorities is the security and safety of the network. We welcome security researchers to submit bug reports and earn rewards for their work.


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 are delivered on top of earnings from transaction fees.

Transaction Fees

Transaction fees are market-based p2p transfers, attached to network interactions for state execution.

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.
