Verified Validator Benefits

By verifying your validator you permit users to identify, monitor and track the historical performance of the UID to which you are associated.

Verified validators will be listed in the staking section of to help users make more informed choices about who they wish to delegate to.

We will be supplying additional services and data to verified validators as we build and expand the site.

How to Verify

Validator verification is a simple process that requires sending a single transaction from the current coldkey associated with the UID and then completing the form below. Validators must be active at the time of verification.

The value of the transaction must be equivalent to the rewards earned by that validator in a single day at the time of verification. We have thought long and hard about this cost and believe it is the fairest way to provide a tiered pricing structure relative to the value being accrued.

Verification is attached to the hotkey and any change in the hotkey of a UID will result in loss of verification and require a new submission.

Privacy Mode

It is possible to verify your validator but request to remain private, in which case you will not have any information listed on the site, the validator will show as Private and you will not have to submit any data to taostats other than a transaction hash to verify your validator.

You will also be able to choose if you wish to appear in verified validator listings to encourage nominations or opt-out. We respect your right to remain anon.
