Learn about Sentinel Staking
Users can easily delegate DVPN from their native wallet, Cosmostation Wallet, or Keplr Wallet. By submitting a simple transaction, users delegate their DVPN to a validator who accrues rewards on their behalf and distributes them after deducting a commission rate.
Users keep full custody over their tokens while delegating.
Once delegated, rewards are automatically restaked and compounded.
You can view the live staking rate at the top of this page.
Staking rewards are being derived from the inflation in the network. Currently, the inflation rate is around 49% of total supply and set to decrease by 6% every six months. The inflation is being proportionally distributed between all stakers.
At Staking Rewards, we have pre-vetted many validators in Sentinel. Browse through the list above and search for the verified badge. These validators are registered with Staking Rewards and are considered reliable. Please note that any validator is free to get in touch with us to get verified. We are not affiliated with any of them and thrive to provide an independent ranking.
When choosing a validator to delegate your DVPN tokens to, 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 a sustenance for many validators. They rely on it to maintain dependable operations.
- Select validators that are able to maintain 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 DVPN investment long-term.
We do not recommend that you delegate to any validators with 5% or more voting power in the network. Also, you can consider validators that are long-term committed to providing value to Sentinel; supporting the platform’s app development, tooling, and educational materials.

Sentinel is a Cosmos-SDK based blockchain network that builds the foundation for a decentralized VPN and chat service.
Individuals from all over the world can now monetize on their unused bandwidth by becoming a ‘Bandwidth Miner’ on the Sentinel p2p bandwidth sharing network. The integration of Sentinel dVPN nodes with hardware devices such as routers, allow for users to effortlessly host Sentinel nodes from their home, allowing for the creation of a robust residential IP marketplace.
The purpose of the Sentinel ecosystem is to empower universal access to the internet in a trusted and provable
Generally, a virtual private network (VPN) lets its users create a secure connection to another network. It is often used to gain access to restricted websites and content, shield browsing activity from public Wi-Fi and provide a degree of anonymity by hiding locations.
VPN applications mask a user’s internet-protocol (IP) address, which is like a fingerprint of your device. VPNs generally help obfuscate that fingerprint. A VPN server will create an encrypted tunnel for your internet traffic that shields it from governments, internet service providers (ISPs) and others.
Some governments block certain websites, such as Google or Wikipedia, based on geo-fencing, which means they can block it for people within different geographic regions. VPNs help evade that restriction by letting people connect to servers in areas outside the geo-fenced one.
A decentralized VPN takes these privacy measures a few steps further in that it can’t be compromised by a central actor or shut down by closing the company or server running it. In this way, it’s more resilient than a centralized VPN. Additionally, because all the code is open source, a trusted third party isn’t needed; rather, users can just check themselves.
