We’re immensely proud to support staking for Celestia - the first modular blockchain network that is optimized for ordering transaction data and making it available- as a genesis validator!
Celestia is a modular network that makes it easy for builders to launch their own blockchain by focusing solely on data availability. It allows developers to easily deploy blockchains on top of Celestia, much like deploying smart contracts. This accessibility empowers individuals to create their own unique rollups and blockchains, serving a multitude of purposes and ensuring scalability for a broader audience.
Celestia's data availability layer introduces innovative features like data availability sampling (DAS) and Namespaced Merkle trees (NMTs). DAS allows light nodes to verify data without downloading entire blocks, reducing costs compared to monolithic chains, while NMTs enable execution and settlement layers on Celestia to download transactions that are only relevant to them. Celestia offers its data availability layer to other chains for publishing data by paying for blobspace.

As a permissionless network, Celestia uses Proof-of-Stake to secure its own chain. Like any other Cosmos network, users can help secure the network and engage in governance by delegating their TIA to a validator like Chorus One.
The following guide explains how you can stake your TIA easily with Chorus One.
Step 1: Login to https://wallet.keplr.app/ and search for Celestia
Step 2: Select the Chorus One validator
Step 3: Enter the amount of TIA you want to stake
Step 4: Approve the transaction. You have successfully staked TIA with Chorus One!
*Note that this guide has been written using the Celestia Mocha Testnet as it was written prior to Mainnet, however the steps remain the same.
After a few seconds, the transaction will be completed. You have now successfully staked TIA with Chorus One using Keplr!
