You can read some important guidelines on the best way to decide who to stake to here: How should I choose validators to stake to?
When deciding, there are a range of tools that you may find helpful when making a decision that we have detailed below.
The Radix Dashboard dApp website includes a validator list that details the amount of stake against each validator node - breaking this down into stake delegated by a validator node to themselves (“Owner Stake”) and stake delegated to that validator by token holders and themselves (“Total Stake”).
The Radix Dashboard’s validator list also highlights key factors on each registered validator node to aid token holders in making a decision. This includes a node name and info URL specified by the node-runner, an “uptime” of the % of consensus rounds a node has participated in recently, and a visible indication of nodes at the top of the list with a very large amount of stake. (XRD token holders are strongly encouraged to delegate to other nodes further down the list for better network resilience and decentralization).
The Radix validator community is active and healthy, with a multitude of different websites available that show information on staking and validating. To find out more about these tools, see How do I discover dApps and tokens in the Radix ecosystem?
