Polkadot Nomination Strategy Guide

  • Profitability — so you may go look who shares the most rewards and nominate them, get best bang for your buck. But is that good for the long term longevity of the network? Agree it is definitely a factor.
  • Node Setup — so you may ask who is best running the network, got a good network setup, etc. This is a good option and also gives you less risk of slashing but providing a more secure network
  • Support the underdogs — you might choose to support the smaller guys to achieve higher decentralization, that is also great especially if the small validator has taken the time to setup a solid node. Some of these underdogs might even be in the waiting list
  • Nominate 10–12 active validators that meet your requirements of profitability and node setup
  • Nominate 4–6 of the underdogs in the waiting list
