FAQ's

  • How much can I earn by staking Kava?
  • You can view the live staking rate at the top of this page.

  • Which network metrics do the rewards depend on?
  • The individual Kava rewards depends on the Block Rewards, Block Time, Daily Network Rewards and Total Staked.

    Even though the proposed inflation is 7%, the actual inflation will depend on the average Block Time and actual Block Reward.

    Every block one validator is randomly selected to create a block, whereas 1 staked or delegated token counts as one “lottery ticket”. The selected validator has the right to create a new block and broadcast them to the network. The Validator then receives the block reward and 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 Kava?
  • The tokens are at risk of slashing. If the Validator misses blocks or tries to corrupt the network, the delegator holdings might get slashed. Therefore it is very crucial to choose a professional and trusted Staking Provider.

    Please take note of the 21 day lockup period when delegating your crypto.

  • Who is the team behind Kava?

  • What is the utility of KAVA?
  • The KAVA token is integral to the security, governance, and mechanical functions of the platform. There are three main use cases for the KAVA token:

    Security

    The top 100 nodes validate blocks by a weighted bonded stake in KAVA tokens. Economic incentives for validators come in the form of earning KAVA as block rewards and as a portion of the network’s transaction fees. Validators risk losing KAVA via strict slashing conditions such as failing to ensure high uptime and double signing transactions.

    Governance

    KAVA is used for proposals and voting on critical parameters of the Kava Network. This includes but is not limited to the types of supported assets and Dapps, their debt limits, and acceptable assets to use as debt collateral, collateral ratio, fees, and the savings rate for various financial instruments introduced to the network. The KAVA token is also used to vote in proposals that would affect the Kava Network SAFU Fund and treasury allocation, such as reward payouts for incentives programs.

    Incentives

    A portion of KAVA emissions is distributed as incentives for scaling the network. These incentives go directly to top projects on each chain to drive growth, encourage competition, and improve the health of the Kava ecosystem.

  • What are the key features of Kava Network?
  • Co-Chain Architecture

    The most important feature of the Kava Network is its co-chain architecture, enabling developers to build and deploy their projects using either the EVM or Cosmos SDK execution environments with seamless interoperability between the two.

    The co-chains of the Kava Network operate like the two hemispheres of a brain. The Cosmos Co-Chain is optimized for Cosmos ecosystem developers. The Ethereum Co-Chain is optimized for Ethereum ecosystem developers. The Translator Module connects the two distinct execution environments of the Co-Chains, allowing them to work seamlessly together at scale.

    This packages the industry’s two most used execution environments within a single network. Ethereum meets Cosmos via the Kava Network’s robust, developer-optimized Layer-1 architecture.
