Manual Delegation#

This page explains how to delegate using a block explorer and Metamask.


This page is intended for advanced users who know how to interact with the blockchain through a block explorer.

Congratulations on taking this more technical approach! It will enable you to better understand the system.

How can I find the address of my chosen data provider?#

Google 'Flare metrics' and in that website, chose a data provider. Find the Flare or Songbird address which should look something like 0xbf61db1cdb43d196309824473fa82e5b17581159.

Input that address in a block explorer. You should see that every few minutes it is submitting transactions named SubmitPriceHashes and RevealPrices.

Where can I find the delegation API?#

The delegation API can be found in the WNAT contract, in function delegate.

What values should I use in the delegation API?#

The API for delegation is: delegate(_to address, bips), where bips is the percentage in basis points. 10000 bips = 100% and 5000 bips = 50%. If one wants to delegate 100% of his vote power to the data provider in address: 0xbf61db1cdb43d196309824473fa82e5b17581159 the call should look like: delegate(0xbf61db1cdb43d196309824473fa82e5b1758115, 10000).

How do I remove my delegation from a data provider?#

To remove a delegation you should delegate 0% to the data provider you want to remove delegations from.

What is the easiest way to re-delegate my vote power?#

It is probably easiest to first use the undelegateAll() API and then delegate to your chosen data provider/s.
