Staking - How it works

In the Voting & Staking section we already talked about how to vote and stake. Now let's take a look at what influence the voting has on your stake.

First of all - it only makes sense for you to stake if you want to vote and potentially gain rewards but it also has risks involved. If you vote for an Oracle that loses money your stake can be slashed and you can lose a portion of it.

Each Distribution Period we take a Resume and set the ratios to then update the balances on the next interaction.
In the meantime the balances are calculated virtually to always have accurate data for UI and potentially other contracts to read.
