Validators base funds

Do validators need funds in the wallet? What is the minimum amount that should be staked in wallet to be a validator? Thanks.

Welcome jeyjey!

You don’t need more than a partial AKT (e.g. 0.1AKT) to self delegate to create the validator, but this will not bring you into the top 100 list.

If you wish to sign blocks then you need to be in the active set (currently the top 100) which means at the time of writing you need at least ~43k AKT delegated to you by you or by others.
