Deactivated Tezos Staking

More than 9 mln XTZ is in the staking balance with Deactivated Tezos bakers.

In Tezos there are cases when the validation node becomes "inactive" or "Deactivated" in the blockchain. It happens because the baker has changed the infrastructure with the baking address, or just decided to stop baking service.

All people who delegate to them should change their bakers as soon as possible to not lose their Tezos staking rewards. Unfortunately, not everyone uses our recommendations for rewards tracking with the Baking Bad tools (Delegation Explorer, telegram bot). Therefore, it happens that an inactive address has some, and sometimes a very big staking balance, which certainly does not have any benefit to the Tezos network and delegators. We decided to remind the community about it and made a small research, which can be easily tracked on the page of "Deactivated delegates" in Tezos Explorer

It seems needs attention, especially for Tezos vote process.  So, Tezos delegators, check if your baker is in the list, read our instructions on how to choose a good baker, re-delegate, and thus participate in the governance. And of course, start receiving staking rewards!

Previously, Baking Bad published reports on how much XTZ coins in staking balance of the Closed or Dead Tezos bakers. It is important to note the difference - "Deactivated" is a list of all public and non-public bakers, which are inactive in the network. But there are also only public delegation services, which have stopped their delegation services (they have the status of "Closed") or stopped paying and scam ("Dead bakers"). Those who have delegated to such bakers DON'T receive their staking rewards, and vote with the Dead bakers. Therefore, you need to be even more attentive to this issue! Find the list of Closed and Dead bakers in this table. If your baker is on the list, you must re-delegate your funds ASAP.

Tezos community is Awesome! Lucky staking!
