What is Radix Staking?

Radix staking is the process of delegating your RDX tokens to contribute to the security of the network. By staking, you can earn rewards and partake in on-chain governance by voting on new proposals. The reward rate for staking on the Radix network is currently -.

Run Your Own XRD Validator

Running a Validator is a great way to support the network and contribute to the security of the network. It requires a local set up in your home. Running a Validator is a great way to foster decentralization. You can run a validator either at home on your own server, or set it up remotely in the cloud.
Reward Rate

On Radix, staking rewards are calculated based on the staked XRD tokens within a validator's pool. The total emissions for each epoch are proportional to the stake delegated to the validator, minus any validator fees or penalties for suboptimal participation in consensus. A perfect participation by the validator results in the maximum possible reward, calculated as the epoch's total emissions multiplied by the staker's percentage of the total stake and adjusted for the validator's fee​​.

30 XRD

To participate in Radix's staking, a minimum of 30 XRD is required. This entry threshold ensures that stakers have a meaningful stake in the network, balancing accessibility with the need to maintain network integrity and security.

Lockup Time
15 days

Radix imposes a lockup period of 15 days for staked XRD. This period helps stabilize the network's staking dynamics and provides a predictable framework for both validators and stakers in planning and managing their staking strategies.

How to stake XRD?

Anybody may stake XRD (also called “delegation of stake”) at any time, to any number of validators of their choice. Staking XRD is done via a special type of transaction, and we’ve made this easy to do with just a few clicks in the Radix Desktop Wallet app (instructions below). The current list of validators to choose from can be found on the Radix Explorer website.

To avoid issues with spamming a large number of small stakes, a minimum amount of 90 XRD per stake transaction is required – a small amount we expect will not pose a barrier to anyone who wishes to stake.

Choosing which validator nodes to stake your XRD to has important implications for both your own rewards and the security and performance of the network. Staking to a low-performance node may lead to reduced or no emissions rewards, for example.

How to choose the right Radix Validator?

When choosing a validator to delegate your XRD tokens, make sure to look at the commission rate which has a direct impact on your rewards being paid out. Low Commission = High Rewards.

However please note that commission rates are the bread and butter for many validators. They rely on it to maintain reliable operations.

Furthermore, it is important to make sure that the selected validator is able to maintain a solid close to 100% uptime for their services.

You may want to consider delegating to smaller validators in order to further decentralize the network. This does not only support the network resilience, but also the value of your XRD investment long-term.

Also consider validators that are long-term committed to providing value to Radix by supporting the platforms app development, tooling, and educational materials.

Is there any risk to staking XRD?

There is no significant risk when delegating XRD.

Please consider that there is a risk of slashing up to 100% of your funds, in case that the validator you delegated to, signs illegal transactions or votes for illegal forks. However if the validator and your funds get slashed would be decided case by case based on an on-chain governance vote.

If you choose a reliable validator, the risk of slashing should be close to 0.

Additionally, please consider that there is a 500 epochs unbonding period before you can access your delegated funds and transfer them.
