Please enter each of the Coinbase Cloud validator addresses from the list above when staking.
Selecting all validators from this list indicates your willingness to support any of them, and the protocol will then automatically allocate your stake to a subset of the validators from your nominated list that have been selected to participate and earn rewards each era. As such, selecting all validators increases your opportunities to earn rewards. Learn more in our Kusama FAQs.
