There is no many-to-one delegation in Pocket Network. You cannot simply stake POKT from your wallet and then forget about it. A POKT account must be staked on a node that is relaying RPC requests. However, if you do not have the skills to run a node yourself, you still have options.
Run Your Own Node
Running your own node is an option if you possess both of the following:
- The DevOps skills to run your own node
- More than 15,000 POKT to meet the minimum node stake
Read our tutorial on how to get started running your node.
Pay Someone to Run Your Node
If you don’t possess the skills to run your own node, but you do have more than 15,000 POKT for the minimum node stake, you can pay someone else to run your node(s). Payment models include a monthly subscription and a revenue share of your node’s POKT earnings.
All third-party node runners can be found here.
Join a Staking Pool
If you possess neither the skills nor more than the 15,000 POKT minimum node stake, you can join a staking pool. Like the third-party node runners above, staking pools are also entirely custodial, so be sure to do your due diligence. You can view the list of staking pools here.
