In this section, you'll find key specifics related to Solana, including staking, bonding, slashing risk, rewards distribution, and more:
|Minimum Staking Amount||No minimum for SOL stakers, but the initial deposit for staking SOL varies by exchange or wallet.|
|Bonding Time||One full epoch before staked SOL starts to earn rewards.|
|Unbonding Time||The unbonding period is 2 - 4 days & 1 epoch.|
|Slashing Risk||On Solana, slashing is not automatic.|
If an attacker halts the network, they can be slashed upon restart.
When a validator is slashed, both the token holders and the validator suffer losses – token holders lose a portion of their delegation, and the validator's total delegation decreases.
|Staking Rewards Distribution||Solana staking rewards are paid every 2-3 days, issued in the following epoch's first block, and automatically re-delegated as an active stake.|
|Staking Rewards Compound||Solana staking rewards are compounded automatically.|
|Inflation Rate||The Solana inflation/emission rate will start at 8% and decrease by 15% annually until it reaches a long-term inflation of 1.5%.|
