What are the Rewards for a Layer 0 Validator?

The validators get 10% from people staking, and all validators together get 10% from revenue going over the TF Executors (not from TF Grid primitives).

Also a 5% yield farming per year during the first 2 years will be distributed amongst validators.

@Sacha, I still didn’t get the answer from @kristof here, so i’m asking you about the rewards:

Does L0 Validator also receive + 5% yield per year during the first 2 years as mentioned in latest TF Deep Dive Session 6 on presentation slide “Validator Nodes & Executors Grid 3.0 / Q1 2022” (page 44)?

This +5% yield is (explained in video) because “During the first two years there will not be enough utilization yet to give you some return.”

Hey Joris.

Thanks for the question. The only way to register interest as a validator is to use the L0 and L2 signup posts on the forum. We will release the next validator guidelines on the forum after the sign-up process is complete. Stay tuned and thank you for your support!

Can you already say when the validator setup begins?

Is it still possible to apply for a L0 validator node?

Yes, there are more applications than spots, but I’m sure some won’t follow through.
