FAQs

What is staking?
Staking is the process of actively participating in transaction validation (similar to mining) on proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchains. Staking lets you earn income with your crypto by participating in the network of a particular asset. When you stake your crypto, you make the underlying blockchain of that asset more secure. In exchange, you get rewarded with more assets from the network.


Why should I stake my assets?
Token holders can stake their assets to help secure the networks and in exchange can earn participatory rewards.


What are the risks?
Staking often requires a lockup or bonded period where you can’t withdraw your crypto for a certain period of time. Another primary risk is a loss of funds due to penalties such as slashing. It’s important to mitigate these risks by choosing a reputable validator known for its high quality performance. Before staking, it is important to research the protocol requirements and rules for each project.


What are the reward rates?
The expected annual reward rates are determined by the protocols and may fluctuate over time.
