Formulas behind the calculator are the following:

Allocation Daily Rewards (ADR):

  • A — indexer allocation,
  • TA — total network allocated tokens,
  • DR — network daily rewards

Total indexer allocations daily reward (TADR) is equal to the sum of the daily rewards of all the indexer allocations


Step 1. Enter GraphScan.io and choose Indexer to delegate your GRTs. Detailed Indexer information placed there as well as rewards calculator will help you to make the best choise.


Recently we were pleased to announce our collaboration with Equilibrium, a Polkadot-based interoperable money market. Ryabina will enter Equilibrium’s existing stable of network validators and set up our Substrate Telegram alert bot to help Equilibrium community track noteworthy network events.

Ryabina chose Equilibrium as a partner for several reasons. With the current DeFi hype, dozens of new financial products enter the market every day, while Equilibrium proved itself as a strong DeFi project built by fintech veterans. …


The economic model of The Graph is complicated and has a lot of nuances. That’s why Ryabina published a series of “How it works” guides.

You might have missed our previous blog posts, “The Graph Network launch. How to delegate?” and “Graph Network. Fee Cut and Rewards Cut: How It Works.” In this article we describe the distribution of rewards to Delegators.

What you should know when delegate your GRT:

  • You pay a one-time fee equal 0,5% of all your stake for delegating and these tokens are burnt.
  • When delegating you get shares of Indexer’s pool. Quantity of shares received is determined by Delegation Exchange Rate, which is…


TL;DR

  • Fee/reward cuts percentages displayed in the fee/reward cuts columns don’t show the fact fee charged from delegators;
  • Some Indexers have zero or even negative fee/reward cuts right now;
  • To make this business cost-effective Ryabina will set up a fee floating model, depending on the sum of delegations it will have;
  • In the near future, to make fact fee close to 10%, Ryabina will use a dynamic model of cuts. Fee/reward cuts% displayed on https://network.thegraph.com/ will be between 16% and 21% (estimates).

As we already know the relationships between Indexers and Delegators are regulated with the fee and rewards cuts.


WHAT IS GRAPH?

‘The Graph’ is a decentralized protocol that enables the indexing and querying of data via ‘subgraphs’. The Graph optimizes data acquisition from any supported source, beginning with the Ethereum ecosystem, making it possible to efficiently query blockchain data without relying on a centralized service provider.

There are four roles in The Graph Network: Indexers, Curators, Delegators and Consumers. To ensure economic security of The Graph Network and the integrity of data being queried, participants stake and use Graph Tokens (GRT).

Indexer — and this is Ryabina’s role in Graph — is a node operator in The Graph…


So now you have an account with some DOT or KSM tokens and you want to get more with nominating validators. The quantity of validators is huge, from large companies to single nodes. Pick your validators carefully — if they do not behave properly, they will get slashed and you will lose DOT (KSM) as well. How to choose the best validator and what is the best way to nominate? Look through our tips.

Tip 1.

The most safe and profitable strategy is to nominate 16 validators.

The list of elected validators changes all the time. As long as you…

We are happy to present alerting Telegram bot for Acala Network (currently it works on Mandala Network).

There are two main functions: to alert about events that take place with accounts and to collect statistic about network status.
