SuperNode States & Implications for Stake
SuperNodes have three core states. These states come with implications for the state of rewards from their stakes. Stakers must be aware of these states to fully grasp and inform their staking decisions responsibly. SuperNode state is eligible for transition on every end-block.
After self-staking 5,000,000.00 PSL, SuperNode
ownersare able to
signerin order to synchronize to the network, connect with other nodes, and join the
active-set. They can sign blocks and earn rewards after an end-block transition to
SuperNodes in the
enabledstate are in the
active-setand will earn rewards and returns on their staked PSL so long as they remain
enabled. Moving self-staked collateral will result in the SuperNode being removed from the
Validators who are in a
disabledstate are not in the
active-set, either by choice or as a result of a misconfiguration or becoming
banned(punishment for behavior harmful to network integrity). They cannot sign blocks and they do not earn rewards.
Self-staked collateral held by
disabledoperators is not locked by the network and is free to move.
Pre-Enabledis a transitory state where a SuperNode is being added to the
active-setas the node synchronizes to the network and connects with other peers.
