Collator APR on Calamari is dynamic and can change every day. It depends on the stake behind each collator. Collators with lowest stake behind them have the highest APR, however, their APR will go down as more stakers choose them. This ultimately can affect the amount of staking rewards that you earn from nominating to them. As such, Nova Wallet recommends that you monitor your collator's performance on a semi-frequent basis.
