I just did my first delegation of tezos. However, when I check the block of the baker (in TzScan), I can see my delegation not in the delegation list but in the origination's list. For instance (fake example), this is my delegation, which shows a "1" in originations:

enter image description here

If I go to the block explorer of the baker, under tab delegations, I can see 12 delegations and 3 originations, the top one being mine.

Did I do something wrong in my delegation? Or does it take some time (7 cycles, it seems) to be listed in the delegation? If so, then why some originations are longer than ~20 days (3 days a cycle times 7), e.g. here?

When you originate a KT1, you can set a delegate. That is why we split the delegation tab in two sections :

  • a delegation operation
  • a delegation through an origination
  • To be sure, just go to your KT1 account and on the right column, you should see the delegate's tz1 under the balance.

  • I see myself (tz1...) listed as Manager and the baker's address as Delegate. Is that what you mean?

  • Yes, so you should be fine.

  • So after a while it should show in the baker's explorer under delegation rather than originations?

  • It should already be in the delegation section. Look at the Delegators list, your KT1 should already be there.
