  • Minimum staking to get rewarded is Mooning! What's going on here? I know I "could" stake on Kraken in a centralized way, but decentralized staking in Polkadot seems to be designed for the rich guys only. Is this really by design? | 2021-04-12

    Polkadot 0.8.30 has been released. This is a LOW priority upgrade. | 2021-04-12
    The PR to reduce fees on Kusama by 50x has been merged to the runtime code, although it is not included in the v2030 runtime upgrade.
  • Trying to understand DOT inflation, is it necessarily a bad thing? | 2021-04-10
    Okay yeah, it does look like they increased payable nominators per validator for Polkadot, cool.
  • Is staking worth it if you have less than 10 dot? | 2021-04-09
    Note that this number fluctuates, if you are interested in why and what steps are being taken to ameliorate it, see this github issue:
  • Polkadot Digest 8 Apr 2021 | 2021-04-07
    If you're interested in the XCM changes, see this tracking PR: and the recently-merged changes here:
  • Staking only for big investors? | 2021-04-07
  • Polkadot Digest 7 Apr 2021 | 2021-04-07
    Rococo's training wheels have been removed! The 50-block finality delay has been eliminated and Rococo now finalizes based on post-inclusion parachain block checks. | 2021-04-07
    The minimal amount of DOT necessary to nominate with in order to get staking rewards. See for details and status.

    However, there's been some good progress by Kian (one of the devs) in optimizing this, see latest benchmarking here:
  • Will minimum staked always go up? Will it centralise all DOT on exchanges? | 2021-04-01
    In order to understand the issue in depth, and what is being done to ameliorate it, I recommend you read through this github issue:
  • Polkadot Digest 31 Mar 2021 | 2021-03-31
    Tests have been added to estimate the nominator limit with latest changes to the solution set. Current estimate is 80'665 nominators (~ an order of magnitude larger than current Polkadot runtime)
  • Polkadot Digest 29 Mar 2021 | 2021-03-29
    The Rococo runtime has been upgraded with a variety of additional features to help with parachain onboarding.
  • Cardano still leads Github activity | 2021-03-24
    Kusama and Polkadot are just different configurations of the same Blockchain that live in
  • Polkadot Digest 23 Mar 2021 | 2021-03-23
    There are several potential fixes and optimizations which are being worked on, both in the relay chain (coming in runtime v30) and in the longer run, moving much of this to a parachain. See (and the rest of the comments in that issue) for details.
