🛂Controller Account Deprecation

Press F to pay respects

Removing Existing Controller Account

There will soon be a change to Polkadot and Kusama which will start to remove Controller accounts. Previously a Stash / Controller account setup was used to ensure that the user Stash account (think of this as a savings account) remained somewhat offline, and instead, actions related to staking were carried out by the Controller account – which if compromised couldn't transfer/steal funds from the Stash account for example.

At first, the ability to create new Controller accounts will be removed, and then eventually support for Controller accounts may be removed altogether. Instead, Proxies will be heavily utilized going forward, including the Staking Proxy type.
