Slashing Risks Near (NEAR)

What are the slashing risks for NEAR staking

Written by Mike

Slashing is currently not enabled but is planned to be implemented in the future.

Validators do not get slashed for being offline, however, their rewards will be adjusted by the % of their online participation, for example, a validator with 90% uptime will only receive approximately half of the epoch rewards that they could earn. If a Validator misses out on too many blocks, they will be removed from the active set in the next epoch, missing out on rewards for at least two epochs.

It is important to choose a Validator that guarantees high uptime in order to maximise your rewards. P2P Validator is ranked in the top position for historical uptime and has 4+ years of experience in operating secure nodes. Please take a moment to read about why we think you should stake with P2P Validator!
