How-to Stake Harmony ONE
Learn how to gain passive income and help decentralise the Harmony blockchain network by staking your ONE in this ONE cryptocurrency staking guide.
What is staking?
In a blockchain using a proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism such as Harmony, staking allows you to delegate your ONE tokens to a Validator in return for a share of the block rewards.
Staking with an elected validator can yield a 9-10% APR which is paid in ONE tokens, re-staking your rewards will give you compound interest!
The minimum stake is 100 ONE, the more you stake the greater the reward.
When staking your ONE with a Validator, your ONE still belong to you but they are locked. This means you cannot use your ONE while they are delegated, but you can choose to un-delegate at any time to unlock your ONE.
There is a delay of 7 epochs between undelegating and your ONE being unlocked for use, but you can delegate to another Validator the epoch after undelegating.
One epoch in the Harmony protocol is 32768 blocks which works out around 18 hours with a normal block time of 2 seconds. During times of increased network load this may take longer.
