The current annual reward rate for Osmosis is 160% per annum for validators. Each epoch (daily) 25% of released tokens will be issued to validators and their delegators as reward for their work participating in the chain’s security.
Inflation on Osmosis is structured around a “thirdening” model, with token issuance cut by one-third each year. Following the initial released supply of 100m OSMO in June of 2021, in year one 300m tokens will be released, in year two 200m, and so on, until a maximum supply of 1 bn OSMO issued is reached.
Slashing is enabled in Osmosis. A validator committing a slashable offense will result in loss of funds and missed rewards for both the validator operator and any delegators who have staked their OSMO to that validator.
There is no slashing for downtime, however, after 50 hours of downtime, validators are jailed and must wait for a cooling period to elapse (60 seconds) before submitting an un-jail transaction to rejoin the active set. While jailed, validators are not eligible to participate and earn rewards. However, a delegator may choose to redelegate their stake to a new validator at any time during which the validator to which they were delegated is jailed.
Double-signing results in a 5% slashing penalty deducted from the validator’s overall stake, including self-bonded and delegated tokens. The validator is also jailed and is not eligible to submit an un-jail transaction, effectively removing the validator permanently from participating in the network.
Bison Trails charges a percentage service fee on all rewards earned by tokens delegated to our public validator. The service fee is paid to Bison Trails automatically by the protocol. You can then withdraw your rewards from the protocol directly.
The Maximum Service Fee is the highest percentage that this validator’s Service Fee can ever be raised to, and the Maximum Service Fee Change is the most that the Service Fee can ever be changed in one day. While any Osmosis validator can choose to adjust their Service Fee, these two parameters cannot be changed and dictate how that fee can be adjusted.
