A delegator is an entity that participates in securing a proof-of-stake network by staking their cryptocurrency holdings. Instead of actively participating in consensus and the block creation process themselves, delegators choose a validator to delegate their stake to. In exchange, they get a share of the rewards given to validators by the protocol.
