Kava is a cross-chain, decentralized finance project focused on providing collateralized, USD-pegged stablecoin borrowing for assets from different blockchains. Kava is making use of interoperability solutions to bring its services to tokens like Binance’s BNB and Bitcoin.

Users of the Kava CDP system earn KAVA tokens and can delegate them to validators like Chorus One, which maintains and govern the protocol with the goal to create a stable platform for cross-chain decentralized finance.

Please note that the unstake period is 21 days. This means that you can only unstake and withdraw coins to your wallet after this time has passed. We wish you profitable staking!

There is a 21-day unbonding process for staked KAVAs during which delegator KAVAs do not earn rewards and cannot be transferred, exchanged, or spent. KAVAs can, however, be slashed during the unbonding period.

Once your transaction is approved you will be able to see your Kava getting staked. Congratulations you have successfully staked your $KAVA!!
