BECOME A DELEGATE
IN THE HYDRA NETWORK

Delegates are at the heart of IOP’s public and permissionless Hydra Blockchain. Active delegates are those from the community who have been elected and authorized to mine / forge Hydra tokens.

Mining is the process of discovering blocks in a Proof of Work (POW) consensus model such as Bitcoin and then being compensated for it. This process is called forging in a Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) consensus model.

THE PROCESS TO BECOME A DELEGATE


If you want to become a delegate, please follow the instructions on our GitHub:

REGISTERING YOUR DELEGATE

The first steps are registering your delegate in the Hydra Desktop Wallet and setting up your node. First make sure that you download the wallet and follow the instructions for starting the process below:

CLAIMING YOUR DELEGATE

The next step is to claim your delegate on the community-run Hydra Delegates website once you are up and running. You must submit a proposition to share with voters once you have claimed your delegate.

Your proposition should clarify your network configuration, suggested payout percentage, and any extra services to which you will contribute.

You are now ready to introduce your delegate to the community. Best of luck!
