Frequently Asked Questions
Here are answers to some of the questions our community has asked us. Get in touch if there's more you would like to know.
Cosmos aims to be the internet of blockchains. The Cosmos Hub officially launched in March 2019. To learn more, please take a read through their whitepaper.
New blocks on Cosmos are proposed by validators. To enable Cosmos to run seamlessly, validators need the technical capabilities to offer a secure, always on infrastructure.
Not everyone is able to do this. Some token holders participate indirectly by delegating the tokens they have to a validator. Validators are running a service for delegators. They typically charge a fee to cover their operational costs.
By delegating ATOM, you help secure the network. You get part of the rewards provided by the protocol for this assistance. If you are planning to hold on to ATOM for some time, delegating will help you accumulate more ATOM while contributing to the health of the network.
You are not giving away ownership of ATOM by delegating. As a validator, stakefish will never have the ability to move your ATOM.
Cosmos penalizes any validator that misses too many blocks or double signs a block by slashing the staked amount on that validator. We have our own capital on the line, so we are fully incentivized to do our best to prevent such events. However, delegators must be aware that this slashing risk will always exist.
We charge 4% from the block rewards received by our delegators. For example, if a delegator receives 100 ATOM as a reward, stakefish will receive 4 ATOM while the delegator will get 96 ATOM.
Undelegating (also called unbonding or unstaking) can be done anytime. However, it takes approximately 3 weeks for your ATOM to undelegate and become transferable. This time period exists in order to prevent long range attacks.
If you have any questions about staking or our validator services, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We are happy to talk with anyone and help navigate community members through this exciting new ecosystem.Get in Touch
