The Graph Delegation Guide For Locked & Unlocked GRT

Post preview image

Use this simple step-by-step guide to delegate either locked and unlocked GRT to receive a share of staking rewards. If your funds are managed by multi-sig you may contact directly @konstantin_rm in telegram or via email [email protected] for personal assistance.

  1. Go to https://network.thegraph.com.
  2. Connect your wallet using MetaMask.

If you have tokens locked with a vesting contract press an arrow and navigate to in in the UI. If your GRT are not vested, skip this step.

3.  Choose an indexer. P2P has launched two indexers. Select our indexer 0x5a89 from the list in the beginning if you have >5M GRT or paste 0xf4a0 in the search field to select the second one if you have less than 5M GRT.

a) Indexer address #1: 0xf4a097ce3a4efbd1748b2ef2076813961e4e6fa7
Max capacity: 18M GRT
Fee: ~8%
Description: small subgraphs strategy, a little bit more volatile on short period of time, but potentially higher APY, less flexible. Best choice for delegators with less than 5M GRT.
Avg reallocations time: 3-4 weeks (or when market significantly changes)

b) Indexer address #2: 0x5a8904be09625965d9aec4bffd30d853438a053e
Max capacity: 580M GRT
Fee: ~8%
Description: balanced strategy, with less volatile returns, higher than average Network APY (but less than APY on our first Indexer). Best choice for delegators with more than 5M GRT.
Avg reallocations time: 7-10 days (or when market significantly changes)

Press on the blue button to proceed and select Delegate.

4. In the opened window specify the amount you wish to delegate. Press Submit Transaction. You will be required to pay 0.5% GRT deposit tax.

5. Approve the transaction using MetaMask. First, allow interaction with your wallet and second, confirm the delegation. You will need to have some ETH to pay the transaction fee.

6. After a successful confirmation you can observe information about your delegation by pressing on your account in the right top corner

7.  Rewards are automatically added to staked deposit and paid when the indexer closes allocation. There is no slashing for delegators on The Graph.

The Graph GRT unbonding period lasts 28 days.

8. You can look at your current delegation, amount of rewards and other information in our common Rewards report, just put your delegator address in the Delegator key field. If you have more than 1M GRT, please mail to [email protected] and we create your own report, customized with your wishes.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask in our Telegram chat on contact Konstantin via email [email protected]
