Scrolling down to the instruction part, for this delegation activity, there are 6 steps in total. But what we are really interested in is just #2 and #6:

  • #2 — StakeAccount is the account which staked the funds to the validator
  • #6 — VoteAccount is the vote account, which determine who is the validator, here is the MonkeDAO.

Delegation activity analysis

Here is going to analyze the question that how many unique wallets since February 1st have decided to delegate their staked Solana to the MonkeDAO validator?

Plot is shown as the below, as this is just launched and there are not much wallets, daily average unique wallet address is around 2.6 and the peak time is on Feb/10th. Linking to my previous article Solana — liquidation analysis for Saber and daoSOL (MonkeDAO), we can know that Feb/10th is the day when unique wallet addresses increased a lot. There should have some correlation there.

Thanks Flipside Crypto for providing the data.
