Stake MultiversX with Kiln, enterprise-grade staking

What is MultiversX?

MultiversX, previously know as Elrond, is a highly scalable, secure and decentralized blockchain fostering new applications for users and businesses.
The MultiversX ecosystem includes a suite of products and tools empowering users to take the most out of the use-cases offered by MultiversX such as XMoney for payments and on/off-ramp or XWallet (previously Maiar) and XExchange, a Decentralised exchange.

What is staking?

In a Proof-of-Stake blockchain such as MultiversX, staking consists of locking native tokens to earn the right to secure a chain, and earn a yield while doing so.
With EGLD staking, users lock EGLD  to fund a validator, which helps secure the chain by proposing new blocks and attesting other validators’ blocks, earning a yield in the process.

How to stake MultiversX with Kiln?

To stake EGLD in a few clicks, just follow these next steps. It should take you less than 5 minutes to complete your first transaction:

  1. Login to Kiln dashboard
  2. Go to the /stake/EGLD page of the dashboard
  3. Select the Account you want to stake on
  4. Choose the amount of EGLD you want to stake 
  5. Connect your wallet (for instance Ledger, Metamask, Trust Wallet, etc) Kiln supports multiple wallets as well as WalletConnect
  6. Click on the “Stake” button! 

As easy as pie! Kiln takes care of everything. To unstake, you simply need to undelegate into one transaction and you will receive your original stake back in your wallet as well as accumulated rewards from delegation.

Why should you stake your assets?

Staking generates the safest and most predictable yields in the crypto space. It is the most natural yield feature in crypto as the value originates from the blockchain’s native currency inflation, which is forecastable. 

You can stake your EGLD as well as other (d)PoS cryptocurrencies to:
  • Put your treasury to work
  • Diversify and earn, while contributing to blockchains decentralization
  • Bring new opportunities to generate safe yields to your users

Stake MultiversX FAQ

What does Proof-of Stake mean?

Proof-of-Stake (PoS) is a type of consensus mechanism used to validate cryptocurrency transactions. Through PoS, validators can contribute to the block production of a chain while keeping environmental concerns to a minimum, an increasingly large issue in Proof-of-Work.

By staking capital rather than energy, validators risk losing a portion of their value and future potential for staking by misbehaving while creating blocks. This incentivises collaboration and fair practices while validating information in a similar way that PoW has with incentives and punishments to curtail malicious activity while creating consensus.

What is the role of MultiversX validators?

MultiversX validators verify and add new transactions to the network through the blocks they produce, or attest other validators’ blocks. Validators get rewarded with EGLD tokens for securing the network and passing transactions.

How much can you earn by staking EGLD? When will I receive EGLD rewards?

EGLD staking APR is currently 10.27% at the time of writing this article. EGLD APR may be subject to change in the future. Rewards can be claimed through the ‘Claim’ button in the Rewards tab of your dashboard.

Does MultiversX network have transaction and gas fees?

Yes MultiversX has both transactions and gas fees. For most transactions, fees are less than $0.002 (paid with EGLD), even during high-traffic periods.

What are the risks associated with staking EGLD?

The risks associated with staking EGLD comes from double signing and downtime. Double spending on the MultiversX protocol comes with a slashing penalty, as well as downtime. When delegating with Kiln these issues are taken care of from our end so you don’t have to worry.

Is there a minimum and maximum amount of EGLD to stake for MultiversX?

You can stake MultiversX’s EGLD token with as little as 1 EGLD.

Do I maintain custody of my EGLD tokens? Is EGLD staking non-custodial?

When you delegate your EGLD token from your wallet (ideally a Ledger hardware wallet) to a validator such as Kiln to receive staking rewards, you keep full custody of your funds.

What is the lockup period to stake MultiversX? When can I unstake and withdraw my EGLD?

There is a 10-epoch period lockup on MultiversX. One epoch is approximately 24h. Your tokens become transferable after 10 days.

What is the average block time on MultiversX?

The average block time on MultiversX is 6 sec, meaning a new block is produced every 6 seconds.

What is an Annual Percentage Rate (APR) and how is it different from Annual Percentage Yield (APY)?

APR, or annual percentage rate, is the fixed interest rate earned on an investment over a one-year period. It is the percentage of return investors can expect to receive on their investment. On the other hand, APY or annual percentage yield, takes into account the compounding of interest on a fixed schedule. It includes both the interest earned and the interest on previously earned interest.

When it comes to PoS protocols, compounding does not always apply as additional validators can be needed to stake more. Therefore, APR is used instead of APY. It's worth noting that APY and APR cannot be compared directly, as they measure different things. However, it is possible to convert APR to APY and vice versa.
