Validator Staking

Once you have the Validator set up complete, you must stake an initial pledge of 20 UTG into your Validator in order for it to become a candidate for block production. The process for selection of Validator Nodes to become "active" (known as Ultron nodes) is dependent on several factors, including penalty scores as well as the amount of UTG staked into the Validator. The more you stake, the higher probability of being elected as an Ultron Node to generate blocks and earn block generation rewards.

For details on how Validator nodes are selected to be Ultron Nodes, see the whitepaper.
