Validation on the Fetch.ai mainnet. Validation – Validators hosting a node
package transactions into blocks, these blocks are then added to the blockchain.
Validators receive FET rewards for doing this. Aeons – Blocks are grouped together into aeons,
this is generally 100 blocks or roughly 8 minutes. At the start of each new Aeon a
new set of validators are selected. Stake – Validators must accrue
staked FET to be selected. They can either supply this entirely themselves
or in part by other community members called delegates. Delegates receive a share of the
FET rewards. Joining – Validators compete with each other
to be selected for the next aeon by offering reward incentives to the community. The validators with the highest stakes are
then selected to pack blocks for the next aeon. For more information on validation and
governance follow the link in the description, for everyone holding FET head
over to our staking page..
