The State of Solana Staking

Staking SOL is the easiest way to earn passive income and help secure the network.

As of now, 64% of the SOL in circulation is staked, while 36% remains unstaked. The ~287 M staked SOL gives Solana a staking market cap of $46B, compared to a total asset market cap of $72B.

Solana boasts 1,713 validators, but most of the staked SOL is held by a few validators from large institutions such as Coinbase, Galaxy and Figment. 

This has kept Solana’s Nakamoto Coefficient (NC) steadily at 21. The NC measures the minimum number of validators needed to censor blocks or interfere with consensus. This number is referred to as the superminority. A higher Nakamoto Coefficient i.e larger superminority suggests greater decentralization and resistance to attacks, as it implies that more independent entities would be required to coordinate malicious activities.

Solana’s Nakamoto Coefficient could be higher, allowing for more decentralization and security. However, that would require more teams with a deep technical understanding of the Solana network to spin up high-quality validators that can attract a significant stake to break into the superminority and join Coinbase, Galaxy, Figment & Co.
