Tezos Nodes

“Tezos Nodes” is a ratings service of Tezos public bakers. Working with the baking community, we've developed a baker reliability index that features 9 key indicators. We think this index will provide you with all the necessary info you need to choose a reliable public baker.

For each baker, we track the following indicators:


Lifetime — the number of node operation cycles
Efficiency — the effectiveness of the node since it's launch
Last 10 — the effectiveness of the node over the past 10 cycles
Fee — charges to run their node service
Support — availability of support 24/7 for delegates
Projects — Baker's personal projects
Payouts — payout period
Free Space — free space for delegation
Total Points — points reliability

We receive data for reliability indicators Lifetime, Efficiency*, Last 10, Free Space, automatically from the Tezos blockchain using RPC commands from our own Tezos node and from the public API of the TzScan interface.

For data on Fees, Support, Projects and Payouts , we constantly monitor baker behaviors, and track this information on an ongoing basis. Our team clarifies details with individual bakers, and we have the last word on points assigned to subjective categories like "Projects".

The Total Points are summed up automatically according to the given values for each of the reliability criteria.

*Efficiency is calculated taking into baking right and steal

In order to make your research as simple as possible, we have developed a 100-point system for determining the reliability of bakers, namely:

Efficiency for all time:
Max. 30 points
30 points for 100% +
25 points for 99,5-99,99%
20 points for 99,01-99,49%
15 points for 98,01-99%
10 points for 97,01-98%
5 points for 96,01-97%
0 points for 0-96%
Efficiency over the last
10 cycles:

Max. 20 points
20 points for 100% +
15 points for 99,5-99,99%
12 points for 99,01-99,49%
10 points for 98,01-99%
7 points for 97,01-98%
5 points for 96,01-97%
0 points for 0-96%
Fee:
Max. 20 points
20 points for 0 - 4,99%
17 points for 5 – 7,99%

10 points for 12,5 – 14,99
5 points for 15 – 19,99%
0 points for 20 - 100%
