If you have SOL token but you don’t want to bother running a Solana validator you can still contribute to the blockchain and earn rewards by staking your tokens to a validator such as Chucky18. This way you become a delegator and part of an awesome network.
Validators are rewarded for their work in securing the network, they are rewarded in the form of block rewards and transaction fees. In order to become a validator and be paid for the service, the node validator must use a self stake, lock up a collateral stake, which can be slashed if their actions damage the network or break the rules.
Earn rewards by securing the digital infrastructure of Web 3.0 through staking
