In normal situations, as long as they are in the top 51 and forging they will be able to pay out. If they begin to pay less, in normal situations, that would be announced. The price of ark will never affect the voting awards. The only thing that affects voting awards, is the percentage of voting power you have awarded to the delegate of your choice. Example you vote for another delegate or move some of that ark out of that wallet. In those two conditions your voter weight will lower, therefore lowering your voting awards. For direct advice, you will need to contact the delegate you are voting for…
Thank you for you curiosity in Ark, and representation from Columbia!
A delegate is an account that can receive votes from other addresses. Most people who have registered as a delegate will also be running a relay node that is linked to their delegate account using the account passphrase. That node will begin forging once their delegate acquires enough votes to get into the top 51.
@densmirnov So if I understand it right, you’ve got a lottery where you PAY 20 Ark for a chance to win 80% of the total deposits for the week. So this is a pure lottery. Seems like you can do this without being a delegate or running a node.
But then there is a voting component, where you’re also asking for delegate votes? Is that kind of an extra program - just nice if you’re in?
Yes, you’re right — it’s a lottery, but with an extra option to get some tickets and a chance to win the prize completely free — you just need to vote for ark_lottery delegate and you will receive some free tickets, depending of your voting weight, every week! You will participate on an equal basis with all other participants who bought tickets.
Hello @puremage111 !
1.You can cast only 1 vote per ARK account/adress. You can vote for 2 or all 51 active delegate by creating more ARK accounts and transferring your ARK to those accounts and vote from there. 2.No, you just need to vote once.
3.You need to remove you vote first and the you can cast you vote to another delegate.
4.Yes, It makes all the difference how much ark you got in the account you vote from.
