Stake SEI with Kiln, enterprise-grade staking

What is Sei?

Sei is a versatile, open-source Layer 1 blockchain designed specifically for facilitating the transfer of digital assets. With its innovative consensus mechanism and pioneering technological advancements, Sei stands as the fastest blockchain within the industry.

Sei’s consensus also called the “Twin-Turbo Consensus” employs an efficient method for swiftly distributing transactions among nodes. Validators verify transactions, suggest blocks, and transmit them in fragments, speeding up the entire process.

How is SEI Proof-of-Stake implemented?

In a Proof-of-Stake blockchain such as SEI, staking consists of locking native tokens to earn the right to secure a chain, and to be rewarded while doing so.
With SEI staking, users lock SEI to fund a validator, which helps secure the chain by proposing new blocks and attesting other validators’ blocks, gaining rewards for doing so.

Kiln runs SEI validators to participate in consensus by voting and validate new blockchain blocks and transactions..

SEI token holders can delegate their SEI holdings to Kiln validators to contribute to network security and earn SEI staking rewards.

Why should you stake your assets?

Staking is one of the safest and most predictable ways to get rewarded in the crypto space as the value originates from the blockchain’s native currency inflation and a share of transaction fees. You help secure the network and get rewarded by staking your SEI.

If you do not stake, your asset's token share will be diluted among other people’s tokens that are being staked and accumulating new tokens into the network.

You can stake your SEI as well as other (d)PoS cryptocurrencies to:
  • Put your treasury to work
  • Diversify and earn, while contributing to blockchains decentralization
  • Bring new opportunities by enabling your users to earn staking rewards

Stake Sei 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, which is becoming 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 incentives collaboration and fair practices while validating information in a similar way that PoW has with incentives and punishments to curtail malicious

When will I receive SEI rewards?


Validators are rewarded every block they (~0.35 seconds) on Sei.

Does interest compound when staking SEI?


SEI has a built-in compound interest mechanism.

Is there a minimum and maximum amount to stake for SEI?


There is no minimum stake amount.

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


While you may maintain self-custody of your staked SEI (ideally using a Ledger hardware wallet), you may also choose a third-party custodian to control the withdrawal of your staked SEI (i.e. Fireblocks).

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


Stakers must stake for a minimum of 21 days before being able to withdraw staked tokens.

What are the risks associated with staking SEI?


There is a risk of penalty on Sei protocol. A validator's stake is slashed if they become unavailable or sign blocks at the same height.

How do rewards and penalties work?


Users can stake their SEI with validators and, in return, receive staking rewards. Validators can choose to set a commission fee as compensation for their crucial role. A higher commission rate indicates that the validator receives a larger portion of the staking rewards.

There is a risk of penalty. A validator will be deemed offline if it is unavailable for 5,400 blocks within the latest 108,000 blocks. Once marked as offline, the validator will be removed from the active validator set and can only rejoin after a 10-minute waiting period.

What is the average block time on Sei?


The average block time is 0.35 seconds on Sei.

What is a Gross Reward Rate (GRR) and how is it different from a Net Reward Rate (NRR)?


In the context of Proof-of-Stake blockchains, the gross reward rate (GRR) refers to the total or gross amount of rewards earned from staking before deducting any fees or expenses. This is a reward rate that fluctuates with the operations of the protocol and the performance of validators, it is not set by Kiln. The net reward rate (NRR), on the other hand, takes into account the deductions or expenses, providing a measure of the actual rewards received after subtracting fees or costs.

Where can I learn more about Sei?
