  • How to delegate Ardor (ARDR)?

    Delegating Ardor to a Staking Pool can be done inside the official NXT client. It is not required to stay online. You have to define a delegation timeframe in the transaction and thereby refresh the delegation once the duration is expired.

  • How to stake Ardor independently?

    To stake Ardor coins it is recommended to run the official NXT client with an entire copy of the blockchain on your Computer, a Raspberry Pi or a Virtual Private Server (VPS).

    To get the highest possible rewards, please make sure to stay online 24/7 and keep the wallet unlocked for staking only.

  • Which network metrics do the rewards depend on?

    The individual reward depends on the Daily Network Rewards (Transaction Fees spent in the Ardor Network per Day) and the Total Staked %. 

    Every block one staker is randomly selected whereas 1 coin counts as one “lottery ticket”. The selected staker has the right to forge a new block and broadcast it to the network. He then receives the fees of all transactions successfully included in this block.

    In our Staking Calculator you can play with the above mentioned metrics to understand the dynamics and create all kinds of reward scenarios.

  • Is there a risk to stake Ardor (ARDR)?

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

    While delegating Ardor you keep the coins and private keys in your own wallet.
