dYdX staking is now available through Kiln & Fireblocks
The dYdX Chain was launched in late November 2023, it is built on the CometBFT and utilizes the Cosmos SDK. As a reminder, dYdX's mission is to democratize access to financial opportunity.This migration, known as dYdX v4, enhances decentralization and opens up new possibilities.
By opting for a Proof-of-Stake consensus, the dYdX Chain offers fresh opportunities for stakers to get rewarded for contributing to the chain security and decentralization.
The mechanism of rewards and fees on the dYdX Chain
On the dYdX Chain, staking rewards are mostly distributed in USDC and are manually claimed per-block basis (approximately every 1.08 seconds). Staking rewards come from trading and gas fees from transactions made on the dYdX Chain.
When using Kiln Validators through Fireblocks, you can manually claim your rewards with a single line of code that will send your rewards to the provided wallet.
While currently the average Validator Commission rate on the dYdX Chain is 6.08%, Kiln Validator's commission rate is 5%.
To calculate your dYdX staking rewards, you should account for:
1. Trading fees and gas fees from transactions made on the dYdX Chain.
2. Total dYdX staked by the staker.
3. The validator commission rate and the community tax (mainly set-up by the dYdX governance).
A simplified way of calculating rewards could be: Staking Rewards=(1x2)-3
