How to stake AMB?
There are two options to stake with Ambrosus:
- Helping to secure the network by setting up a masternode.
- Staking AMB on our Ambrosus Arcadia Staking platform.
Setting up a node requires a larger amount of funds and technical knowledge of running a node, but offers the largest rewards.
Staking AMB on Arcadia is for those that have a smaller amount of AMB, don’t have the technical knowledge to set up a node, or simply want to start receiving rewards quickly. When staking, all coins that go into one of the pools are distributed among running nodes. When there is a sufficient amount in the pool to enable another node, it will be automatically configured and launched.
See the complete guide to staking on Ambrosus Arcadia here.
How does staking work on Ambrosus?
Ambrosus uses Proof-of-Authority (PoA) consensus for validator nodes to validate and approve transactions on the blockchain. Validators (Apollo) earn AMB rewards for producing new blocks and validating bundles of data. Storage nodes (Atlas) earn AMB rewards for storing bundles of data. Staking rewards can be earned by operating a node or by staking on the Arcadia staking platform.
What are staking rewards on Ambrosus?
There are two types of rewards on Ambrosus: block rewards and bundle rewards.
- A block reward is the number of AMB an Apollo masternode receives per validated block. This compensation is paid to each Apollo masternode in proportion to its stake.
- A bundle reward is the number of AMB an Apollo masternode receives per validated bundle of data, and an Atlas masternode receives per stored bundle.
How do rewards for AMB work?
Apollo nodes and Atlas nodes both share 50% of all bundle costs accumulated. Currently bundles cost roughly 300 AMB to create.
30% of these fees are being split by all Apollo nodes equal to their staked value, and 70% of these fees get split between the 3 different types of Atlas nodes, namely Omega, Sigma and Zeta.
Each of the 3 Atlas nodes carries a different weight for the reward calculation:
- Omega Nodes have a weight of 12
- Sigma Nodes have a weight of 4
- Zeta Nodes have a weight of 1
The total bundles fees accumulated for the Atlas Nodes gets divided equal to the weight the node carries.
On top of the bundle fees, Apollo Nodes also receive block rewards for successfully confirming new blocks.
Apollo nodes function to verify blocks while Atlas notes provide the storage for bundles that are fed onto the Ambrosus Network, thus their payment schedules differ. Apollo nodes receive a 14AMB as one time payout for each block they verify and 22% of each bundle they collate and pass onto the Atlas nodes. On the other hand, Atlas nodes receive no block rewards but 78% of the bundle reward over the course of 13 periods each lasting 28 days, where the first 12 yield 6.5% and the last yields 22%. This ensures that Atlas nodes are incentivised to stay online and complete the data storage cycle for each bundle.
Why stake with AMB?
The simplest answer—you earn great rewards while contributing to an ecosystem that is constantly expanding through successful partnerships and real, working solutions.
What’s more, if you are using Arcadia staking, you have the flexibility to unstake your coins at any time.
Is there any risk to staking AMB?
For node runners: The risk of running a node lies in lost income if they are placed cooldown period. Nodes are placed into a cooldown period if they either go offline or run out of storage. This cool-down period is measured in bundles ranging from 10-100 and is adjusted based on the reputation of the node (how good their service has been in the past). Thus nodes that are reliable are locked out for shorter periods of time and thus the node operators’ risk decreases as they continue to be online and service the network.
For stakers: The price of Ambrosus can fluctuate, with losses outstripping rewards, although this is true for investment in any asset, whether in the crypto sphere or in traditional markets.
