Hello, everybody, since there are no onchain solutions for regulating the size of a stake (I hope that it will ever appear and I’ve already posted some ideas which are imlemented in origianl TON elector contract and can describe them as additional topic), we have been discussing for a few days now with @denys4k how we can influence the distribution of stakes between validators with his validators stats on https://near-staking.com/
Current cumulative stake mappings do not help users to distribute their tokens between pools. Humans - creatures subject to herd instincts and will involuntarily always choose the largest clusters, except for a small percentage of individuals who are aware of what is happening or tend to be isolated from society.
Therefore, there was a proposal to direct the flow of people more evenly into pools, at least in the off-chain format of atm.
For example, make the graph of not a cumulative stake, as it is now, where the top validator has “only” 7% of total stake and that is perceived by the subconscious as something completely insignificant, but the gradation from 100% and below, where 100% will be taken the maximum stake, and so all the rest - the percentage of the maximum. Next, all pools from 66 to 100% will be painted red (the color of danger and at the psychological level will repel), plus when there will be a noticeable red figure of 100% is much clearer than the current 7%.
In this way, we will be able, although probably not significantly, to influence the distribution of user stakes until better solutions are available.
We would like to hear the team’s opinion before the implementation
