Meet The Stake Boss!
The Solana network gets stronger when you delegate your SOL to a diverse group of validators. Decentralization of our active stake keeps the network secure and censorship-resistant. As an investor, it can be very time-intensive to find reliable validators and monitor your stake accounts.
Think of the Stake Boss ("The Boss") as your automated stake manager. You create a single stake account for your SOL investment, and The Boss will split your stake across several validators. Your Stake Boss will also monitor your validators and change delegations to use the best validators available in each epoch. By spreading your stake across several validators, you minimize the risk of downtime by any single validator.
How Does It Work?
The Boss is a non-custodial stake manager. You always retain your Withdrawal Authority and have full control to deactivate and withdraw your stake. When you create your Stake Account, you will grant Solana's Stake Authority permission to The Stake Boss.
We use the scores shown on this website to identify top-performing validators. We also filter-out validators with heavy stake concentrations or locations in over-populated data centers. We also verify that validator commissions are 10% or less.
The Stake Boss is FREE! Even better, we pay the transaction fees for managing the Stake Accounts. In exchange, we reserve 1/N spots in your validator pool for our own "Block Logic" validator. The commissions we earn as a validator pay for your Stake Boss services. Block Logic is a high-quality validator with redundant data centers and a secure computing environment.
How Do I Start?
The Stake Boss is currently in development on the Solana testnet and is coming to the mainnet very soon. Please contact us using the chat widget in the lower right corner of the site, and we'll add you to the wait list. You'll be among the first to know!
Can You Show Me An Example?
Yes! The examples below are from the Solana testnet and you can inspect the results in the Solana Explorer (links provided).
Step 1: Create a new keypair for your Stake Account:
$ solana-keygen new --no-passphrase -o stake-boss-example.json Generating a new keypair Wrote new keypair to stake-boss-example.json ============================================================================ pubkey: BbeCzMU39ceqSgQoNs9c1j2zes7kNcygew8MEjEBvzuY ============================================================================ Save this seed phrase to recover your new keypair: ya ya ding dong ============================================================================
Step 2: Create the Stake Account
$ solana create-stake-account stake-boss-example.json 400 --stake-authority BossttsdneANBePn2mJhooAewt3fo4aLg7enmpgMvdoHIn this example, the Stake Account address is
BbeCzMU39ceqSgQoNs9c1j2zes7kNcygew8MEjEBvzuYand the Stake Authority is granted to the Stake Boss at
BossttsdneANBePn2mJhooAewt3fo4aLg7enmpgMvdoH. The Withdraw Authority is retained by the investor's account.
Step 3: Register your new Stake Account with the Stake Boss and indicate how many (N) ways you want to split the account. e.g. Split into two smaller accounts. You only need to create one keypair and a single Stake Account. The Stake Boss will split the stake into smaller accounts and delegate different validators for each account.
Step 4: The Stake Boss Does Magic
In the example above, the Stake Boss split the stake into two accounts and delegated the stake to two of our top validators. Here are the stake accounts:
% solana stake-account --url testnet 2TqbsD5tW1bNRCZpRSDq7CejLVJwMNwuouvPaMdSdrk2 Balance: 200 SOL Rent Exempt Reserve: 0.00228288 SOL Delegated Stake: 199.99771712 SOL Active Stake: 0 SOL Activating Stake: 199.99771712 SOL Stake activates starting from epoch: 168 Delegated Vote Account Address: 38QX3p44u4rrdAYvTh2Piq7LvfVps9mcLV9nnmUmK28x Stake Authority: BossttsdneANBePn2mJhooAewt3fo4aLg7enmpgMvdoH Withdraw Authority: 71bhKKL89U3dNHzuZVZ7KarqV6XtHEgjXjvJTsguD11BSee the account in the Solana Explorer
% solana stake-account --url testnet BbeCzMU39ceqSgQoNs9c1j2zes7kNcygew8MEjEBvzuY Balance: 200 SOL Rent Exempt Reserve: 0.00228288 SOL Delegated Stake: 199.99771712 SOL Active Stake: 0 SOL Activating Stake: 199.99771712 SOL Stake activates starting from epoch: 168 Delegated Vote Account Address: HiFjzpR7e5Kv2tdU9jtE4FbH1X8Z9Syia3Uadadx18b5 Stake Authority: BossttsdneANBePn2mJhooAewt3fo4aLg7enmpgMvdoH Withdraw Authority: 71bhKKL89U3dNHzuZVZ7KarqV6XtHEgjXjvJTsguD11BSee the account in the Solana Explorer
In this example, the investor's address is
and they retain the Withdrawal Authority for control over the stake account. The Withdrawal Authority allows the
investor to deactivate the account, withdraw funds, or change the Stake Authority (i.e. fire the Stake Boss).
We would like to hear your thoughts on this new service. Please contact us using the chat widget in the lower right corner of the site to start a conversation.
P.S. The Stake Boss is a Stake Manager, not a "Stake Pool". The Stake Boss does not issue SPL tokens for use in DeFi derivatives. It might be possible for The Stake Boss to manage the validators within a Stake Pool -- that work is still in development. More to come!
