  • How to stake IOST?

    For the average user the best way to stake IOST is by voting for one of the Producers (Servi Nodes) in the Network.

    50% of all Block and Ecosystem Bonus Rewards are shared with voters.

    The Voting is easily done via the IOST Biss Dashboard.

  • Which network metrics do the rewards depend on?

    The IOST inflation is set at 2% p.a. For the first year there is another ecosystem bonus incentive of additional 2% on top.

    Effectively the staking yield always depends on the total number of voting participants.

    Less voters = higher rewards. With the above metrics we track the current status only.

  • Is there a risk to stake ?

    Staking IOST is safe as long you protect your private keys. There is no risk of slashing.

  • Can i redeem / change my vote?

    If you wish to redeem your votes, it takes 7 days.

    After redemption, you can vote again, trade or withdraw.

    Note that the distribution of rewards will stop once you initiate the vote redemption process.

  • How often can i expect a reward?

    The Block / Token Issuance Rewards are paid out daily and the Ecosystem Bonus Rewards are paid out quarterly.
