Delegates are typically whitelisted experts (e.g. professional portfolio managers) to whom Stakers can delegate their voting power. Delegates are expected to vote and make an informed decision about which projects to include in the relevant SI Pool. For voting, delegates receive 25% of the SI Rewards of the voting power delegated to them and SI Rewards for their own voting power.
Stakers can also transfer their voting power to any non-whitelisted address.
