Stake Sui with Kiln, enterprise-grade staking
What is Sui?
The Sui blockchain is a layer-1 solution that provides a foundation for a variety of applications, from gaming to finance.
Developed with a focus on functionality and efficiency, Sui is characterized by the instant finality of its transactions and the use of “objects” associated with specific wallets.
The platform's most notable feature is its capacity to process transactions in parallel rather than sequentially, which sets it apart from other layer-1 blockchains.
What is staking?
In a Proof-of-Stake blockchain such as Sui, staking consists of locking native tokens to earn the right to secure a chain, and to be rewarded for doing so.
With Sui staking, users lock SUI to fund a validator, which helps secure the chain by proposing new blocks and attesting other validators’ blocks, getting rewards in the process.

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

SUI staking APR is currently 8.25% at the time of writing this article. SUI APR may be subject to change in the future. Rewards can be claimed through the ‘Claim’ button in the Rewards tab of your dashboard.

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.
