Flow (FLOW) Slashing Risks

How slashing works in the Flow network.

Every delegator is self-responsible for the financial decisions made. It is very important to chose the right validator in order to protect your stake.

The Flow network would consider slashing for validators´ actions that have an impact on the security and integrity of the network. Slashing is currently not enabled by the staking contract and would be handled on a case-by-case basis, however it is expected to be implemented in the future after sufficient testing. In order for slashing to take effect, a super majority of more than 2/3 of the staked consensus nodes must adjudicate the violation. If the node is guilty, they will be penalised by deducting the nodes stake.

Additionally, a validator must be up for 80% of an epoch to receive their full staking reward payout. If you delegate to a validator that falls below this threshold, you may not receive rewards.

The protection of your staked assets is our top priority. With an in-house team of analysts, our node infrastructure has an average uptime of +99% and is under advanced monitoring with 24/7 technical support, backups and alerts. With P2P Validator, the slashing risks are negligible - allowing you to stake with peace of mind.
