The BitBadges blockchain is a delegated proof-of-stake blockchain. Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) is a blockchain consensus mechanism where token holders elect a small group of trusted members (validators) to validate transactions and maintain the network. These validators stake their own $BADGE and earn additional $BADGE from maintaining the network.
The delegated part is because token holders can delegate their stake ($BADGE) to validators and split the earned $BADGE, according to their delegation and commission charged by the validator. This enables token holders to contribute to the security of the network without running their own validator.
Option 1: Delegate
For most users, delegating is the preferred option. You can delegate your $BADGE to an existing validator to be staked. This validator will split the $BADGE earned from securing the network with you (they may charge a commission).
