Frequently asked questions_

Frequently asked questions_

What is staking?

With staking, you buy a cryptocurrency in order to lock it up (stake it) in a smart contract. Your stake is locked up by the blockchain for a specified period of time in order to contribute to the security of the blockchain and earn network rewards

Are there fees for staking?

We charge an operator’s fee which is a percentage of the staking rewards that you earn on our nodes. This fee is used to cover the costs of operating the node which includes system hardware, blockchain fees (gas), and our time.

Is staking secure?

Staking cryptocurrencies is an efficient way to earn passive income while still maintaining exposure to digital currencies. We never take custody of your crypto currency and you are free to unstake from us whenever you like.

Depending on the blockchain, it is possible that some of your delegated tokens can be slashed (destroyed). This is an extremely rare event and requires the node operator (us) to engage in malicious or incompetent practices. We take validation very seriously and you should expect that this will never happen while you stake with us.

What is a Validator?

A validator is someone who is responsible for the provision of infrastructure as well as proposing, validating, and minting new blocks. There are many independent validators on each blockchain that work together, much like a bee colony, to ensure the blockchain’s security by monitoring its accuracy, establishing validity, guaranteeing availability, and provisioning the infrastructure.

Validators earn staking rewards and fees for their work. In order to participate in securing the network and to be paid for this service, validators are required to lock up collateral “stake” which can be forfeited (slashed) programmatically if their actions break the programmatic rules that define the blockchain protocol which they secure.

What is a Node?

A node is a server that the Validator provisions, operates, and maintains for the blockchain. Every node communicates (gossips) with every other node and they share (relay) information about transactions as they occur. Depending on the rules of the blockchain, one or many nodes will gather a collection of transactions and place them into a block. This block is then proposed to other nodes for their approval (validation). In essence, the blockchain itself physically lives on each and every node.

What is a Delegator?

Delegators are individual holders of crypto currency that want to contribute to the blockchain’s security and earn rewards, but do not want to operate a node. They delegate their tokens to a validator of their choice and they are eligible to earn a percentage of the rewards for validating and minting blocks. From the perspective of a validator, a delegator is an anonymous customer.

How Do I Earn Rewards?

If you stake your tokens with Artifact Staking, you are a delegator and are entitled to receive rewards for delegating your tokens. The amount of rewards a delegator can earn through the services of a validator is a function of the validators’ total rewards and the ratio between the size of the holder’s own stake and the total stake of the validator. For their services, the validators charge a fee on the token holder’s rewards.

Where do you operate from?

Our infrastructure is globally deployed and we regularly move our nodes between regions in response to changes in the physical topology of a blockchain. Although we maintain a dynamic network, generally our nodes are operated out of North America and Europe.

What if something breaks down?

Each component of the validator network is redundant. No single point of failure exists. The worst-case scenario would be that the validation server becomes unavailable. In this case, a fully redundant validation node hosted in a separate location takes over until the main server becomes operational.

How are you alerted, should any failure occur?

We utilize a real time alert system which will notify us of any system instability or failure directly. Should one of our nodes go down our network would begin crying for help by alerting our personal cell phones.

Is this completely risk-free money?

Is this completely risk-free money?

a. Market Risk – The price of crypto currency relative to other crypto and fiat currencies constantly changes. You must be willing to bear the market risk of holding crypto currency for periods of time, which means that the value of your crypto currency is likely to deviate from your original purchase price.

b. Liquidity Risk – If you decide to unstake you will have to wait the entirety of the unbonding period before you will be able to transfer, trade, or dispose of your coin. Each blockchain has a different unbonding duration. The unbonding period will reduce your ability to react to sudden shifts in the market or shifts in personal financial situations. Artifact Staking is under no obligation to provide liquidity in any way.

c. Slashing Risk Although slashing does not exist on all blockchains, slashing occurs when a Validator breaks the rules of the blockchain. Typically slashing occurs due to poor node performance but in rare cases more severe forms of slashing can occur when a Validator is shown to have engaged in malicious behavior such as transaction forgery, attacking other validator nodes, or aggressive “gaming” of the rules.

d. Tombstoning Risk This is a very remote, yet possible scenario where a node has become compromised or misconfigured to an extent that it caused a fatal blockchain error. In order to protect itself, the blockchain will permanently eject the node from the network. Typically, a portion of the entire stake on the node is slashed before it is tombstoned. If this were to ever happen, you can always move your staked tokens to another node.
