Delegating to an Audius Node Operator

Delegation is a great place to get involved for users that either do not hold enough $AUDIO to self stake a Node, do not want to become a Node Operator, or are just looking to get started.

Delegating increases your ownership of the Protocol and earns token rewards in exchange for keeping the Protocol healthy by supporting Node Operators.

A list of all active Node Operators can be found under the Nodes tab on the Audius Protocol Dashboard.

How to Delegate

$AUDIO holders can delegate a minimum of 100 tokens to any Node Operator by connecting their wallet on the Audius Protocol Dashboard using Wallet Connect.


Each Node Operator is also able to set a higher minimum delegation, keep that in mind when evaluating Node Operators to delegate towards.
