Stake Accounts

Definitions of variables that appear in the Stake Accounts page on the Rated Explorer for Solana.

Data freshness: The views on this page refresh on a daily basis except for metrics related to the amount staked, the status of a stake account, and their validator delegate. These other metrics refresh every epoch which is around 2 days.

In Solana, a stake account is the account that holds the staked tokens when they are delegated to a validator. Each stake account can only delegate to a single validator at any given time.


There are four counters at the top of the view that show a general view of the delegated stake in the network at the moment.

Total Stake: Total amount staked in the network

Stake Accounts: The number of active (i.e. delegated) stake accounts

Stake Accounts Deactivating: The number of deactivating (i.e. undelegating) stake accounts

Average Delegator APY: the aggregate annual percentage yield (APY) for delegators in the network

Network Penetration

This is the percentage distribution of stake that maps under any given delegator based on their delegated stake to validators. We calculate this as:

Network penetration == delegated stake / total network stake


The current status of the stake account based on whether they are active (delegated), activating (in the process of delegating), deactivating (in the process of undelegating), inactive (undelegated).

Validator Delegate

The name of the validator to which this stake account is delegating to.

Delegator APY

The annual percentage yield earned by this delegator. For more information, please refer to our documentation Annual Percentage Yield (APY)

Validator Effectiveness

This is the effectiveness rating of the validator to whom this stake account has delegated their stake to.
