Key Questions & Answers:

What is staking?

  • For mainnet tokens, such as Binance Chain and Cosmos SDK / Tendermint, staking is utilized to secure the network and network rewards are allocated to the community based on their staking amounts. Generally, you will make more money if your staked coins are larger as a percentage of the total staked coins.

Why Stake?

  • By staking you will be directly participating in the Konstellation Network vision by providing valuable feedback on its usage and also being able to participate in our user interviews (for which there will be additional rewards to be announced!)
  • Additionally, to reward our community for your participation in staking for our user research, we will be providing weekly rewards based on the amount that has been staked.

How do I stake?

  • We’re glad you asked! See below for a step by step on “How to Stake DARC-24B” Remember: You MUST SWAP your DARC NEM Mosaic to DARC-24B, in order to participate in staking.

Is there a lock up period once I stake my DARC?

  • You are able to unfreeze/unstake your staked DARC and rewards at anytime. However, we recommend that you continue to keep it staked and earn rewards as they will continue to compound weekly!

How much will I receive in weekly staking rewards?

  • Stake DARC to earn 0.5% per week of your staked balance until the launch of Konstellation Network mainnet!
  • The staking reward amount is 29.6% annualized (based on weekly rewards of 0.5% compounded), up to a maximum amount of 1.0 million DARC / week.
  • If the total weekly reward amount exceeds 1.0 million DARC / week, the total reward will be calculated as a pro-rata amount of 1.0 million DARC. Because of the compound effect it makes sense to keep as much as staked for as long as possible.
  • Please note: The minimum staking reward payment is 0.1 DARC-24B. Staking rewards will not be transferred until it equals or exceeds 0.1 DARC-24B.

When will I receive my rewards? How can I track my rewards?

  • Rewards are distributed to your account via DARCwallet on a weekly basis. You can track this directly from the DARCwallet dashboard.
  • Staking rewards will be transferred to your account every Sunday at 00.00 am EST.

Are there any limits here? How much DARC can I potentially earn with staking?

  • There is a total maximum limit of 1,000,000 DARC -24B rewards per week. We have implemented a floating ratio when the reward transaction exceeds 1,000,000.00 DARC-24B per week, it will be adjusted so all users will receive their pro-rata share of 1,000,000.00 DARC-24B
  • Please note: The minimum staking reward payment is 0.1 DARC-24B. Staking rewards will not be transferred until it equals or exceeds 0.1 DARC-24B.

Are there any fees associated with staking or un-staking DARC?

  • Please note the fee for staking and un-staking is 0.005 BNB

Is there a deadline for staking? When can I start?

  • You can stake DARC-24B immediately. Daily snapshots will be taken to calculate the staked amounts and the rewards will be paid on a weekly basis. We will be sharing the staked amounts and rewards with the community as well.
  • This staking program will end at the launch of Konstellation Mainnet.

When will Konstellation Network Mainnet launch?

  • We are currently in Phase 2 of the Konstellation Network Testnet. While the testnet is being worked on, we will continue to update the community on development progress. We are currently targetting Q3 for mainnet completion.
