Solana Foundation Delegation Program

A robust community of independent validators forms the backbone of the Solana network. The Solana Foundation strives to support the growth of this community while encouraging high performance, decentralized and secure node operations. Toward these goals, the Solana Foundation has committed to strategically delegating stake from its treasury in an effort to promote decentralization of the network.

Validators who choose to apply for the Solana Foundation’s Delegation Program may be eligible to receive a stake delegation from the Solana Foundation.

A validator node must meet certain performance and decentralization criteria in order to receive the stake delegation from the Solana Foundation. Delegation sizes are dynamically adjusted based on an eligible validator’s performance. A complete description of the delegation criteria can be found here.
