Validator Selection

Staking Nomination Strategy

The initial nomination strategies are as follows:
  • With an on-chain identity
  • No slash history
  • Validator history on Polkadot / Kusama
  • Commission Rate
  • Slash Cover (off-chain)
  • Prefer dedicated validators for LDOT/LKSM
You can read more on considerations when nominating here. At this stage, the strategy is executed by on-chain governance via Council voting.
  • A list validators chosen by the Homa protocol on Karura Network is here.
  • A list validators chosen by the Homa protocol on Acala Network is coming soon.

Slashing Risks

L-Token holders are exposed to the same level of slashing risks as being a direct nominator, and if the validators do not behave properly, they will get slashed and the underlying asset will be lost.
