Delegating directly to a validator is only available when you can stake 2000 AZERO or more. If you want to stake a lower amount you can join a pool.

If you are able to stake 2000 AZERO or more we strongly suggest to stake directly with a validator as this gives you more possibilities. Below are the advantages and disadvantages of joining a pool:

Advantages of joining a pool

  • You can stake less than 2000 AZERO

Disadvantages of joining a pool

  • Claiming rewards is a manual action
  • Autocompounding is not possible. Though you can manually compound your rewards to the pool
