Distributed staking

a mechanism to deploy stake across multiple validators via a single entry point and transfer the right to claim the stake deposit + stakin

Seam allows users to split stake deposits across multiple validators. This is ideal not only for decentralization of the network, but also also creates a more stable ROI for the 'staker' as rewards fluctuate with validator performance(voting performance)

reward rate on aptos rewards_rate = Maximum possible reward * (Remaining lockup / Maximum lockup)

Reward = Maximum possible reward * (Remaining lockup / Maximum lockup) * (Number of successful votes / Total number of blocks in the current epoch)

This is done in the seam protocol through the use of the Owner-capability mechanism provided by the staking module. with this custodian model the seam protocol is able to mint a token(not a coin!) that bears the ownership of the staked APT. This is important because it allows the right to claim the stake deposit, plus accrued staking fees distributed by the Aptos protocol].
