Livepeer FAQs

How is the Livepeer reward rate determined?

The inflation rate in Livepeer fluctuates; it depends on how many tokens are staked out of the total supply in circulation. Livepeer refers to this ratio as its participation rate.

The protocol aims for a 50% participation rate as the benchmark for balancing network security and token liquidity. The protocol incentivizes participation by increasing or decreasing the inflation rate by 0.0003% for every round that the participation rate dips below or above 50%, respectively. One round is equal to 5,760 Ethereum blocks, lasting about 22.5 hours, which is roughly how often rewards are claimed.

What are the risks associated with delegating?

Livepeer has no slashing mechanism, so your LPT are never at risk of being slashed.

How does Coinbase Cloud's service fee work?

Coinbase Cloud charges a percentage service fee on all rewards earned by tokens delegated to our Livepeer validator. The service fee is paid to Coinbase Cloud automatically by the protocol. You can withdraw your rewards from the protocol directly.
