I have two related questions about my "staking rewards" or the number of rolls towards baking. Does my deposits made from baking or endorsing count towards the staking balance? Also, are locked rewards counted toward my staking balance?
- Frozen deposits are part of the staking balance (otherwise, your staking balance would decrease during baking);
- Frozen rewards are not part of the staking balance. They are taken into account only when they are unfrozen.
You will see that only the rewards are added to the roll storage at the end of the cycle, neither the deposits (never removed) nor the fees (added immediately after the block).
