Collection and Consensus node operators machine account balance

Hi Collection & Consensus node operators,

After the last spork, machine accounts are now in active use on Mainnet, and Collection/Consensus nodes will be submitting transactions using these accounts every epoch going forward.

Please be sure to monitor the account balance of your nodes’ machine accounts going forward to ensure they always have sufficient funds to submit these transactions.


As a reminder, recommended minimum and top-up accounts balances are below (eg. When the balance reaches “minimum”, fill up to “recommended”):


  • Minimum: 0.002FLOW
  • Recommended: 0.005FLOW


  • Minimum: 0.1FLOW
  • Recommended: 0.25FLOW

Please let us know if there are any questions.

thank you,
Flow Team
