Tezos-Nodes


Tezos-Nodes is a reliability rating public Tezos bakers and a service for monitoring the state of node performance for non-public Tezos bakers.

Working with the baking community, we've developed a baker reliability index that features 10 key indicators. We think this index will provide you with all the necessary info you need to choose a reliable public baker.

10 key indicators to evaluate each Tezos baker


Lifetime — the number of node operation cycles
Yield — yearly profit taking into account efficiency and fee
Efficiency — the effectiveness of the node for year
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

Data source


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 TzStats 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
