How to stake using Atomex Wallet

It’s quite simple to delegate purchased Tezos coins (XTZ). The main steps  for delegating Tezos remain the same for most wallets

  1. Open the wallet.
  2. Choose a baker from the list.
  3. Press “Delegate”.

Let us see an example of each of these steps using Atomex wallet

1. Create/log in to your account

Go to Select My Wallets in case you already have an account otherwise click on CREATE NEW WALLET

If you are creating a new wallet then follow the onscreen instructions.

  1. Select the wallet type (Mainnet)
  2. Enter the wallet name of your choice
  3. Enter the word length (24 is preferable)
  4. Enter a derived key password
  5. Enter a storage password

There you go! You have your Tezos wallet.

Your tezos wallet
2. Select a bakery

Press Wallets, select Tezos and press Delegate.

  1. Search for Chorus One in that list,
  2. Set the amount you want to delegate
  3. Verify the To and From addresses,
  4. Select the default fee option and
  5. Click Delegate

Upon the successful completion of your transaction, you will see the success message as below

Congratulations now you are baking your XTZ!!

After you click “Delegate”, the corresponding operation is sent to the blockchain and your delegation status becomes “Pending”. You can check that everything went well in Tezos explorer.

Delegation Pending

Understanding delegation status

As you can see, your delegation is not applied immediately right after delegating. You need to wait a while before it’s confirmed. There are three stages of delegation:

1. Pending
This stage lasts 2 cycles = ~ 6 Days
1 cycle = 8192 blocks = 4096 minutes (each block every ~30 seconds) = ~2.8 days

In this stage you’ve successfully delegated, but your rights are not transferred to the baker yet. This delay is required to prevent the network from some forms of abuse. See more details in the Tezos documentation.

2. Confirmed
This stage lasts 5 cycles = ~ 14 Days

Your delegation is confirmed and the baker received future baking rights (to produce and endorse future blocks). So, now you know that you will definitely participate in Tezos staking in the near future and therefore you can estimate future staking rewards.

Future Rewards
3. Active.

Now you are completely in Tezos staking and earning rewards. As you can see, you have to wait ~20 days after delegating to start staking.

Receiving Tezos staking reward payments

All Tezos staking rewards are credited to the baker and not to delegators directly. Moreover, every time baker receives rewards, those rewards are frozen for the next 5 cycles (~14 days), so the baker can’t spend them. Only after ~14 days rewards are unfrozen and the baker can transfer it to someone else.

That’s why you can see that Tezos staking rewards for cycle N usually comes in cycle N + 6 (after ~17 days):

Payout Delay
What happens if you add or withdraw funds?

Every time the balance of a delegated account is changed (e.g. you raise additional funds, or withdraw funds, or even receive reward payments) you have to wait the same time as described above (37 or 23 days) until these changes are applied.

Staking Rewards
Unstaking Period 21 Days

The Band Protocol is a platform to aggregate and connect real-world data to smart contracts. Band seeks to deliver trusted information to cross-chain applications via its network of validator nodes.

By delegating BAND tokens to a BandChain validator like Chorus One, you are able to earn staking rewards for indirectly participating in securing the network and responding to oracle data requests.

Band oracles are integrated into major blockchains and applications including Binance Smart Chain, ICONS, Nervos and Others.

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!

How to stake

1. Launch the Ledger Live app
2. Download Cosmos (ATOM) using Ledger Live

You will first need to install the Cosmos application (ATOM) from the Ledger Live Directory as the Band Protocol uses Cosmos SDK.

3. Connect your Ledger device to your web wallet

Go to the block explorer website and click the Connect button in the upper right corner as shown in the image.

Now choose a connection method. In our case it’s Ledger — Cosmos. Ledger will verify that the site you are connecting the hardware wallet to is genuine. Leave HD Derivation Path unchanged and click Connect to Ledger

Confirm the action on the Band Protocol browser page to use the Ledger device in that browser. Copy the addresschrome://flags/#enable-experimental-web-platform-features by clicking the OK button in the pop-up window.

Then enable the Experimental Web Platform Features option.

Restart your browser.

Once opened, will ask for permission to connect to the HID device. Click Connect.

Success! The hardware wallet is successfully connected.

4. Top up your wallet

To get the BAND address, on the main page of the browser, click on the profile icon in the upper right corner, copy the displayed address and send tokens to it.

After the coins arrive in the wallet, you can proceed to BAND staking.

5. Choose a validator

You need to select a validator to delegate your BAND tokens. Go to the Validators tab (which you saw in the screenshot). Then select a validator from the list, or just start typing its name. We suggest voting for Chorus One — a reliable and proven validator present on over 25 networks. We have highly available infrastructure and high uptime (uninterrupted functioning time).

Click on the validator to continue.

6. Delegate BAND

On the page, click Delegate.

Enter the amount of tokens you want to delegate manually, or just click Max to stake the entire amount at once. Usually, you don’t need to enter a Memo, but if the validator has this parameter, then you need to enter it as well. After that click Next. <button>Next</button>

Click the Broadcast button. A notification will appear on your Ledger device. Confirm the transaction on the device.

If you have successfully staked Band tokens, you will see the following message:

Done! After the delegation, by clicking the View Details button, you can open a page with detailed information about the transaction.

Through Tinlake, users can tokenize non-liquid assets such as invoices (e.g. ConsolFreight) or streaming royalties (e.g. Paperchain) and borrow against these securitized assets.The Centrifuge Chain, which hosts the Tinlake protocol, is a Substrate-based Proof-of-Stake chain secured by a small set of validators including Chorus One. By delegating Centrifuge (CFG) tokens, stakers help maintain the network and its bridge to Ethereum, for which they earn staking rewards.

How to stake Centrifuge (CFG) tokens

1. Create a wallet using Polkadot JS extension
  1. Download the extension here and add it to your browser.
  2. Go to and  authorize the connection to the extension
  3. Go to settings and update the metadata.
  4. Now go to the extension and create a new address by adding an account.
  5. In the next step change the network name to Centrifuge Mainnet and create an account name and passphrase.

    Akash is a decentralized marketplace, where cloud providers (providers) can lease their computing power to users (tenants). The Akash marketplace functions by conducting reverse auctions whereby the tenant creates orders for computing power, and providers bid on these orders. When the tenant chooses a provider, they create a lease. After this, the user deploys a Docker container on the Akash Container Platform where users are able to then run any cloud-native application and access a range of cloud management services like Kubernetes.

    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!

    How to stake

    1. Access the Hub

    We will stake via the Injective Hub. Go to and click on Connect on the top-right corner to connect with any wallet currently integrated with Injective, which currently includes MetaMask, Ledger, Cosmostation, Leap, Keplr, Torus, or Trezor wallet.

    Wallet List

    2. Explore the dashboard

    Once you get connected you can view your dashboard. On the top right, you can view and copy your INJ address and the equivalent address in Ethereum. The Disconnect option is also found here.


    Your Injective address

    3. Delegate your tokens

    On the dashboard, you can click on Delegate Now to view validators and delegate your INJ tokens to them.

    Delegate Now

    When you click the button, you are shown the list of validators.

    Search for Chorus One in the search box and click on Delegate Now

    A popup window will appear, and you can specify the amount of INJ you wish to stake.

    Click on Delegate and you will be asked to sign a transaction, which will take place entirely on the Injective Chain. This means you no longer need to pay high gas fees!

    Congratulations! You've successfully delegated your INJ tokens. You can head back to the Wallet page to view your delegations.

    4. Claiming rewards and unbonding

    You claim your rewards, distributed continuously every block, on the Wallet page. When you unbond your tokens, you will stop receiving rewards, and your original INJ balance will be returned to you after the unbonding period, which is 21 days. The unbonding period can be changed via community-based governance.

    Fastest Performing and Secure DeFi Wallet | Avalanche Wallet
    2. Purchase some AVAX

    Once you've accessed your wallet, you need some $AVAX! If you bought your AVAX on an exchange, you'll need to transfer it to the X-chain. Copy your X-chain address and use it to withdraw your AVAX from the exchange.

    3. Cross Chain Transfer

    You should now have some AVAX on the X-chain. But staking works with the P-chain so you need to use the "Cross Chain" feature to move your AVAX from the X to the P-chain. You will need to pay a small amount of AVAX as fees so make sure you don't transfer the entire amount.

    4. Select Chorus One Node

    Once your AVAX is on the P-chain, it's time to stake! Click EARN on the left-hand side of the menu.

    Since you want to delegate your AVAX, click on DELEGATE and then ADD DELEGATOR. Now you want to choose the Node you're delegating to. In order to delegate to the @ChorusOne node, copy one of the following two node-ids


    Go to Search Node ID and paste it there. Click Select. You're almost there!

    Sometimes you might see the message that the Node is oversubscribed. Try using the other nodeID if you see this message. In case, you see this message for all the nodes, feel free to email at

    5. Confirm Delegation

    Select the end date for your stake, the amount for staking and click on Confirm. That's it. Congratulations. Your AVAX will now start earning rewards and you've just made the network more secure. If this AVAX staking guide helped you, share it with a friend!

    The minimum staking duration is two weeks. A delegator will receive a higher percentage of rewards if they decide to stake for longer amounts (up to a year), thus incentivizing longer stake lengths.

    Unstaking Period 28 Days

    To perform the following steps we will need the Network Beta dApp and Metamask. We will cover the following steps to delegate GRT.

    Step 1: Setup your GRT delegation operations

    Step 2: Delegate your GRT via the Network Beta dApp

    Step 3: Manage your GRT staking operations

    Before you get started, please make sure to have the latest version of the Metamask Browser Extension installed and to have enough ETH in your wallet to cover transaction fees. Furthermore, ensure that Metamask is connected to “Ethereum Mainnet”.
    Using the Network Beta dApp with Metamask allows you to use a hardware wallet such as a Ledger Nano device for your delegation operations and is highly encouraged as it adds another layer of security. In case you want to use a hardware device for your delegation operations, connect Metamask to your device via the Metamask Browser Extension. Make sure to have the ETH app open on your Ledger device and to have ‘Contract Data’ allowed within the ETH app on your device.

                                             In case you want to use a Ledger device, connect it to Metamask before getting started

    How to stake

    1. Create/log in to your account

    If you do not have an ERC-20 address yet, create one using the Metamask wallet.

                                                                                            Get the metamask extension

    Add the extension to your browser

                                                                                                       Create a new account.

                                                                                                    Create a new account

    Follow on-screen instructions to create the account.

    2. Setup your GRT delegation operations

    To have Metamask display your GRT token, you need to add GRT to the list of displayed tokens. Open Metamask, Look for GRT in the Metamask search bar and directly add it without going through the custom token tab.

    Alternatively,  switch to the Custom Token tab. Input the following information, click Next and then Add Tokens.
    • Token Contract Address: 0xc944e90c64b2c07662a292be6244bdf05cda44a7
    • Token Symbol: GRT
    • Decimals of Precision: 18

    How to add GRT to Metamask

    In case you already own GRT with this address, you will now see your tokens displayed within Metamask. Otherwise, you need to fund this address properly before you can continue. Simply copy your address and withdraw/send funds to it. Once you successfully funded your account, you can find your token balance under Assets on Metamask.

    Again, make sure to have enough ETH in your wallet to cover transaction fees.

    Properly fund your account and make sure to have enough ETH to cover transaction fees

    3. Delegate your GRT via the Network Beta dApp

    Now it’s time to delegate! Head over to This is the Network Beta dApp and the Graph's main Staking UI.

    Click Connect Wallet and Metamask in the pop-up. Now choose the address you want to be using in the Metamask Notification window, click Next, and then Connect.

    How to connect Metamask to the Network Beta dApp

    You will now find your account displayed in the upper right corner of the Network Beta dApp. You can click it to see your GRT balance as well as to disconnect or switch accounts.

    You can find more information about your account in the upper right corner of the UI

    If you scroll down in the Network Beta dApp, you can find a list of all the available Indexers as well as some parameters relevant for your staking operations.

    You can find us as: chorusone.eth
    Our full Indexer address: 0xe63e935fba572784d5aa40715e372e7948bbdb12

    The Fee Cut % shows the percentage of query fee rebates that an Indexer keeps for him/herself, whereas the “Reward Cut %” indicates the percentage of indexer rewards that an indexer keeps for him/herself.

    To start the delegation process, click on the delegation icon on the very right of the indexer that you would like to delegate to. Then click “Delegate”.

    In the overlay menu that appears, you can choose the amount of GRT you want to delegate to the respective validator. Please note that delegating incurs a fee of 0.5% on the amount you are delegating.

    Click Submit Transaction to continue. Then click Confirm in the Metamask Notification window to allow the dApp to spend your GRT. Afterward, click Confirm to transmit your delegation transaction.

    Parameters Cooldown refers to the amount of time that needs to pass before an Indexer can change its’ query fee or its’ indexing reward cut.

    In case you are using a Ledger, you need to approve and sign the transactions on your device as well.

    This might take a while. Do not reload the page.

    Finalize the delegation process by confirming the transactions

    And that’s it, you are now a delegator on The Graph network and help to secure the query and indexing layer of web3! Welcome aboard and thank you for delegating to our Indexer.
    Please note that the network is bootstrapped and subgraphs will transition from the hosted service to mainnet in the course of the next few weeks. Hence, the amount of query fees one can earn is limited at the moment.
    Step 3: Manage your GRT delegation operations

    You can manage your delegation operations via the Network Beta dApp.

    Click on your address in the upper right corner of the Network Beta dApp to find an overview of the Indexers you are delegating to. Within this menu, you can choose to undelegate or delegate more GRT to the respective delegator. Alternatively, you can also do this within the Indexer overview that you find on the main page of the Network Beta dApp.

    Please note that when you unbond your GRT, they remain locked and illiquid for a period of 28 days. There is no delegator slashing implemented in The Graph and you can choose to delegate any amount of GRT.
