How Does Open Staking Work?
The team has produced a variety of videos to educate newcomers about their unique open staking model. It works on a bidding process that has an election every epoch (1.5 days). Validators are elected based on the median bid. Delegators can stake with validators to earn ONE rewards.
The entire consensus mechanism for open staking is called Effective Proof-of-Stake (EPoS) which was invented by Harmony. Learn more about it by viewing the playlist below.
