Unbeatable staking returns
We use some of the best hardware located in a top tier datacentre to ensure optimum performance of our validator. Combined with 0% commission on rewards until February 2022, this means since the start our validator has offered among the top APYs on the network, scoring joint second validator between epochs 239-241.
Note that while APY can vary from epoch to epoch depending on the network performance, we have optimized our servers to attain the best possible performance, and we strive to consistently score between 7-8% APY in any given epoch.
High reliability, security and uptime
Of course great performance means nothing if your validator's machine goes down. As long term web developers with experience of running a hosting platform that serves over 13,000 domains, we not only know how to configure a server for optimum performance but how to ensure constant uptime.
We use all the Devops best practices including disabling password logins, blocking ports and moving essential services to unusual ports. Our high quality datacentre means 24/7 uptime, uninterruptible power supplies and plenty of cooling to keep our validator running reliably and fast.
We also run a team on pager duty, meaning that should our validator stop for any reason, at any time of day, night or season, a member of staff will be called and available to triage and restart our services within minutes. This ensures minimal downtime, thus maximizing your rewards
Your stake is 100% safe with us
Solana's staking program has been built by the Solana foundation to ensure that a devious validator could never steal funds delegated to them.
When you delegate with a validator you are simply 'vouching' for that validator - it is not a deposit, and you remain in full control of your funds so you may withdraw your stake at any time.
(Note that due to the checks imposed by Solana you will need to wait until the end of the current epoch after unstaking before you can withdraw)
How can I stake with Solana Compass?
To stake simply connect your wallet and enter the amount you wish to stake in the form at the top of this page.
How long does it take to start earning rewards?
Once you stake you need to wait for the next epoch to start earning rewards. As each epoch is roughly 2 1/2 days, it could take anything from a few minuted to a couple of days for your stake account to activate.
Once your stake account is activated, you'll earn rewards at the end of each epoch, which will be automatically paid back into your stake account.
Do I need to harvest my rewards to compound them?
No - just sit back and enjoy! Since your rewards are paid into your stake account every epoch, they auto-compound for you. Each epoch you'll be earning yield on a slightly larger stack of SOL
Do you charge any fees?
Until Feb 2022 we are charging 0% commission on rewards earnt by stakers to our validator. After that, we'll be charging a low fee - roughly 0.39% per annum - on the amount you stake, by taking a small 5% percent commission on the rewards earnt.
As an illustration, if you stake 100 SOL with us for an entire year and the network rewards are roughly 7.5% then 7.5 SOL would be generated from your stake account. Of these rewards, we would take 0.375 SOL, and you would receive 7.125 SOL, so your final balance at the end of the year would be 107.125 SOL.
