Ton

Stake TON with Kiln, enterprise-grade staking

What is Ton?

Ton, which stands for The Open Network, comprises several components, including TON blockchains and storage modules, aimed at powering a decentralized and open internet platform. TON was designed by Telegram and seamlessly integrates into the messaging app.

How is TON Proof-of-Stake implemented?

TON relies on the DPoS consensus with a set of validators who propose and validate new blocks. 

The validator set is determined by the Elector governance smart contract allocating new rounds based on each validator's weight, represented by the amount of tokens delegated to them.

Why should you stake your TON?

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, which makes it forecastable. You help secure the network and earn rewards by staking your TON.

If you do not stake, your assets 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 TON 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

Ton FAQ

What does Proof-of Stake mean?

plus

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 staking rewards?

plus

The TON Elector smart contract distributes accumulated rewards at the end of each 36h period, which happens every ~18 hours.

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

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

plus

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.
