yuh, maybe not correct math lol. lets see hereā¦

using the percentage, wouldnt it be (delegate power*%)*addresses ?

100,000*0.01 = 1000 op tokens

i think your numbers there are going to for sure push for massive decentralization cause the APR for the stakers would be insanely higher with the small delegator, nearly 10x higher. thats almost an adjustable rate of 0.1% per 100k op tokens delegated. that may be too steep of a sliding scale.

not sure how to factor wallets in, not sure if also delegates could try to game that by spinning up thousands of wallets. but if that was to be done, maybe it could be done with an aggregated points system that represents a percentage of the whole weekly/monthly allotment for rewards.

using similar scale as you presented, starting with 10 points, and scaling down 1 point per 100k tokens delegated. then multiply that sum by the number of wallets.

so:

A)1-99.99k = 10 points per token.

B)100.01k-199.99k = 9 points

C)200.01k-299.99k = 8 points

and so forth with a cap at 1 million+ receiving 1 point per staked token.

i still think this is too dramatic and the scale should maybe be like 0.2 points at each tier.

but using those numbers, delegate A with has 55k tokens which is 550k points. those tokens are delegated across 100 wallets, they have 55m total points.

now everyone adds up their points. the grand total of points is 7 billion. the total allotment for that weekās incentives is 10k op tokens.

Delegate A has 0.7857142857142858% of the total points. which means they get 78.57 op tokens for themselves and to distribute to stakers.

now lets assume delegate A takes nothing and distributes all of that to their stakers. thats a 7.4% apr to the stakers of delegate A. it could be dramatically less for stakers with larger delegates if using the 1 point step down per 100k tokens delegated scale.

thats just an example of the math breakdown. i like where you are going with the ideas. im personally not sure on the numbers though regarding what the budget for this could be as my example here requires 520,000 OP tokens per year assuming something like 6-60 million staked op tokens varying wildly in total tokens staked to total points earned because of the sliding scale and wallet number factors.

This method, especially in light of how polynya akins it to pos, sounds reasonable and possible imo. would just need to iron out the numbers and come up with some models.
