Polygon

Definitions of the variables that live on the landing page of the Rated Network Explorer for Polygon

Validators View

The default view of the Rated Network Explorer for Polygon is the "Validators" view. This represents the allocation of stake across validators.

Counters

There are four counters at the top of the view that show the aggregate performance of the network in the time period selected. These are helpful in quickly referencing how a validator is performing compared to the network average. The colored numbers represent the difference of the measure from the last period based on the time window toggle.
The counters at the top of the Validators view.
For a deeper dive into what each of these metrics represents, please visit the Polygon Validator Effectiveness Rating page.

Network penetration

This is the percentage distribution of stake that maps under any given validator. We calculate this as:
Network penetration == (validator self-stake + delegated stake) / total network stake

Health status

The status of the validator with regards to the evaluation framework set by the Polygon community with the goal of having a more robust validator set securing the network
For more information on this framework, check out Polygon Improvement Proposal 4.

Commission rate

This is the percentage commission taken by this validator from the staking rewards (i.e. checkpoint signing rewards) earned by the stake delegated to them.

Delegator APR

This is the annual percentage rate earned by delegators staking with this validator net of commissions. For more information, please refer to our documentation Annual Percentage Rate (APR).

Effectiveness Rating

The Rated model of validator performance for the Polygon network. The colour coding in each of those values hints to the relative performance of the entity.
For more information on how this is computed and the methodology behind it, please refer to the Polygon Validator Effectiveness Rating page. You can also learn more about how we rank for relative performance via Rating percentiles.

Delegators View

Delegators view of the Rated Network Explorer for Polygon.

Counters

There are four counters at the top of the view that show a general view of the delegated stake in the network.
  • Total Stake: total amount staked in the network
  • Delegator Stake Share: the percentage of stake that came from delegators
  • Number of Delegators: total number of delegators that have active delegations
  • Average Delegator APR: the aggregate annual percentage rate (APR) 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

Delegation distribution

This is the percentage distribution of validators to whom a particular delegator has delegated their stake to.

Delegator APR % (Gross)

This is the annual percentage rate earned by this delegator before they pay out commissions to their delegate validators. For more information, please refer to our documentation Annual Percentage Rate (APR).

Delegator APR % (Net)

This is the annual percentage rate earned by this delegator net of commissions they have paid out. For more information, please refer to our documentation Annual Percentage Rate (APR).

Blended Delegator Effectiveness

This is the effectiveness rating of a delegator based on the stake-weighted effectiveness of the validators they have delegated to.
