Staking UMEE
​Staking is the safest and easiest way for UMEE holders to earn more UMEE tokens. By staking UMEE tokens, a user is delegating their tokens to a validator to help secure the Umee blockchain in return for a proportional share of block rewards being earned by the validator.

Staking UMEE

Prerequisites

To Stake UMEE Tokens:

Sign into your Keplr wallet and select the Umee network from the dropdown list.

You will now see a list of all of the active Umee validators. Refer to the "Selecting a Validator" guide to learn how to choose a validator that is right for you.

User Guides
​
The "Voting Power" column represents the total amount of tokens staked with a validator.
It is recommended that community members choose validators with LOWER voting power to help keep the Umee network decentralized and secure.
​
The "Commission" column represents the percentage of staking rewards a validator retains for their services.
Validators earn a commission on total staking rewards accrued, NOT the total amount of tokens staked with them.
​
After finding a validator that interests you, select β€œManage” in the right hand column. You will now see the validator's bio, where validators often share additional details community members may find helpful.
​
When you have made a decision, select the "Delegate" button.
​
Input the amount of Umee tokens you’d like to delegate to the validator.
DO NOT stake 100% of your UMEE tokens! You will need a small balance to pay for transaction fees on the Umee blockchain.
​
Select β€œDelegate” and confirm the transaction in your wallet.
​
You have now staked UMEE tokens and your staking rewards will begin accruing immediately!
