What are the Fees for delegating to the Sushi Validator?

Currently the forecasted fee is 4.5% of accrued epoch rewards, this value is not final and will likely change with Mina Mainnet Launch.

How do I delegate to the Sushi Validator?

If you are eligible for the Mina Genesis Block, you can have your stake pre-delegated by submitting the Mina Alumni Staking Pool address in your Genesis Form Submission. The Mina Alumni delegation address is:


What is the reward payout schedule?

Due to the structure of the Mina Epoch Ledger, rewards will not begin accruing until 1-2 epochs after the delegation transaction is initially included in a block. After that occurs, Staking Rewards will be paid out on a regular interval, ideally instantaneously but this will highly depend on the fee landscape, among other things.

How are reward payouts calculated?

The reward payout algorithm is TBD.

Am I able to un-delegate from the pool?

Yes, one may un-delegate from Sushi Validator at any time by making a new delegation transaction and re-delegating your account's stake to a different address.

Can my stake be slashed?

No! Mina has not implemented slashing, and has no plans to implement it as an on-chain feature.
