      What is Bytom Staking?

      Currently, users can stake a minimum of 1 Bytom with a yearly reward payout of 7.75%. Bytom can be staked on the Byone web wallet extension where you as the delegator have the freedom to assign your token voting rights to various validators on the Bytom network. Validators then use your token voting rights to verify transactions on the Bytom Blockchain.

      Although the actual staking of the Bytom is easy, locating reliable information on how to do it was difficult, and the wallet UI in our opinion may not be user friendly for someone new to using web wallets which is the reason why we wrote this piece outlining a step by step guide for you.

      Prerequisites
