Noob question about Tournament without staking

Hi everyone!!

Super excited to start the Numerai journey, looking forward to it.
I have a few noob questions and thought it could be good to just concentrate them into one thread

  1. Can you actually participate in the tournament without staking, just to continually check your strategies ?


Welcome! Yes, you can. It is recommended to do so at first and when deploying a new model to see how it does on live data.

Thanks! That is awesome, already started doing some basic analysis.
I am guessing I will take about 1-2 months of doing the tournament and then stake some NMR on it.
Is there any preference on where to buy the NMR tokens ?
