About IoTeX Staking

What is Staking

A core component of decentralized governance in the IoTeX Network is staking. In this process, token holders deposit (or "stake") IOTX to support network operations, consensus, and governance. By staking, these holders not only enhance the security of the IoTeX Network but also earn IOTX rewards in return.

Delegates and Consensus

IoTeX utilizes a consensus mechanism known as Roll-DPoS. In this system, community-voted Delegates manage consensus on behalf of the IoTeX Network. Anyone can β€œstake” their IOTX and cast a "vote" for one or more Delegates. A comprehensive list of IoTeX Delegates is available on the Staking Portal. Here, you can also stake your tokens, and choose delegates to support and manage your ongoing staking deposits.

Estimated returns

With IoTeX, the staking interest rate is approximately 6% APR, depending on the total IOTX staked in the network and the chosen staking configuration. When staking, the return can be enhanced by configuring various lock settings.
