How to stake Filecoin (FIL)

To earn a yield on your FIL, you can either lend them out to custodial providers or stake them through SFT Protocol.

We recommend using a Ledger Hardware Wallet to keep full control over your funds. To delegate your tokens, you should ensure you have your FIL on your Metamask wallet and follow the steps below:

Step 1: Go to the Filecoin Staking Dashboard and connect your Ledger/Metamask wallet.

Step 2: Enter the number of FIL you would like to stake, click ‘Mint’

Step 3: Finalize by confirming the transaction in your wallet

Do I need to maintain my staking in any way?

  • Users holding SFT tokens can redeem FIL in real-time through the FIL redemption pool constructed on the redemption interface.
  • The SFT is pledged to the fixed-term deposit pool for six months, with a daily floating yield of 20%-35% and daily equipment node rewards of FIL, which are distributed to the Farm pool in a 5:5 ratio with the equipment provider. Users can receive them daily. The pledged SFT will need to be unlocked after six months.
