Updating Operator fees
Make sure to connect your Web3 wallet with the WebApp, and that the address corresponds with the one you want to manage your Operators with.
Note: Your account is associated with your Web3 wallet.
Once connected, browse to the My Account page and select the Operator you want to update from the Operator Dashboard.
Then, on the Operator Details screen, click on the Update Fee button at the bottom left.
In the following screen you'll be asked to enter a new fee. Just pay attention: there are limits imposed by the protocol for incrementing the Operator fee, please read more about this in the dedicated section.
If the proposed updated fee is within the limits, you can select Next, and the following screen is going to explain that the procedure is divided in two steps:
- fee update declaration
- fee update execution
The current operation is about declaring the new fee.
You'll have to submit and confirm a transaction to interact with the smart contract, in order for the fee updates to be declared.
Then, a waiting period is necessary to let all the validators using this operators know about the fee update.
You can cancel the fee update at any time, but you will have to wait until the end of the waiting period to Execute.
So, after the period has ended you will have to come back to this page and confirm the Execution of the fee update.
On the other hand, there are no limitations for decreasing the Operator fee, as it is advantagious for Stakers.
Once you have decided a new fee which complies with the protocol's limits, click Next.
The following screen summarizes the changes to be applied, asking for confirmation.
When clicking on Update Fee button, a smart contract transaction is generated by the WebApp, make sure to open your Web3 wallet, if it does not automatically and confirm the transaction.
The WebApp will update, waiting for the transaction to be confirmed by the network.
When the transaction is confirmed by the network, the changes will take place. Bear in mind, once again, that in case of Fee increase, there will be a delay, to make sure Validators are aware and can decide accordingly.
