I have achieved PoA by setting
This will prevent eras and election to be triggered, so that the validator set will be effectively constant.
Polkadot did the same at mainnet launch : https://github.com/paritytech/polkadot/blob/00fed3bc47dcb9cb591bdec1b2b2e703051241ae/node/service/src/chain_spec.rs
In order to switch to NPoS I will issue a
pallet_staking::force_new_era(sudo_origin) so that election cycles and era can occur again.
The authorities however will continue to accrue era points during the length of the whole era and they would be able to claim them before
HISTORY_DEPTH eras have passed.
Did polkadot allowed for PoA authorities to claim their era payouts? If not how did it make sure that authorities could not collect era reward?
thanks in advance
