Tezos Staking & Validator

“Baking” is the act of signing and publishing blocks to the Tezos blockchain. Bakers are a crucial component of the Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism by ensuring that all transactions in a block are correct, that the order of transactions is agreed upon, and that no double-spending has occurred. -

In other words, baker is the name for the validator in the Tezos protocol. Baking means validating.

How to Select Validator to Stake Tezos?

  1. Fees. How much of the reward the baker is keeping?
  2. Capacity. Each baker has a capacity of how many coins it can accept, which is based on how many coins it currently holds. A baker is "over-delegated" when it has exceeded the amount of delegation it can take, considering the coins they currently hold.
  3. Reliability + Responsiveness. Does this baker pay on time? Will this baker respond to my questions? Many bakers operate forums and chat rooms in which they engage with delegators.
  4. Security. Is this baker's staking setup secure? Does this baker have a track record? Has this baker double-baked in the past and lost coins?
