Before delegating your tokens to a Depool, it’s better to learn a bit more about the Depool metrics. They help you decide which Depool to choose for staking to maximize earnings reward.
You can do your own research on Depools using ever.surf/depooler and ever.live/depools websites. The first one consists of the most popular Depools, while the other lists all available Depools.
You can also check parameters of Surf Depools right from your profile. To do so, you need to tap Earn Staking Reward on the main screen of Surf. Here, you will find the following parameters:
Estimated annual reward - a portion of the user's stake (as a percentage) which the user receives as an annual reward for staking;
Reward Fee - a portion of the user’s reward that is charged by the Depool owner as the staking service fee. The more this parameter is, the less reward the user will get;
Lock-up Period - it is the time period from the moment when the user requests withdrawal to the moment they receive their tokens back. This metrics is the same for all Depools in Everscale and makes up 54 hours or 3 validation cycles;
Age - the number of validation rounds (each lasting 18 hours) during which the Depool operated;
Successful rounds - the number of rounds during which the Depool took part in validation;
Members - the number of users who deposited Evers to the Depool;
Balance - the total number of Evers locked up in the Depool;
Reward Paid - the amount of Evers that has been credited to the Depool’s users as a staking reward, starting from the beginning of Depool’s work;
Assurance - a deposit amount (in Evers) that is put by the validator as a guarantee of its reliable operation. The more this amount is, the more secured your funds are. In case the validator breaks the rules, they get fined;
Available Pool - the current amount of Evers that the Depool is able to receive;
Minimum Stake - the minimum amount of Evers that the user has to deposit in order to take part in staking.
