FAQs about ATOM Liquid Staking

  • stkATOM follows an exchange rate model (also known as the cToken Model) which results in stkATOM increasing in value against ATOM as the protocol accrues staking rewards. Thus, 1 stkATOM is worth more after each reward epoch, or 24 hours. Liquid stakers are given stkATOM tokens at the prevailing exchange rate at the moment they stake.
  • Users can claim ATOM from the pSTAKE protocol 21 days after the unstaking transaction. To avoid waiting for 21 days, try using the Instant Redeem option on the unstaking page!
  • Rewards accrue into the value of stkATOM which increases after every reward epoch. Users start earning rewards from the end of the first day after staking.
  • See the rewards section for further details. pSTAKE charges 5% on liquid staking rewards, where 95% goes to stkATOM holders and 5% goes to the protocol. In order to pay for transaction fees, users may need to hold a small amount of XPRT on the Persistence chain.
  • See the Validator Delegation Strategy section for further details. Your stake is distributed equally to all validators in our set. Validators in the set are chosen in order to optimise uptime, low commission rates, high governance participation, and low instances of slashing.
  • See the Migration Tool section for more information. We have compiled a user guide for the migration, and the tool itself will also guide you through the process.
  • Yes, pSTAKE supports LSM (Liquid Staking Module). Users can liquid stake their staked ATOM instantly on pSTAKE without having to go through the 21-day unbonding period
  • No, users’ staked ATOM will remain with the same validator they have originally staked with, provided the validator is part of pSTAKE’s validator set of 62 validators.
  • A user will be ineligible to liquid stake their staked ATOM with pSTAKE if the validator is not part of pSTAKE’s validator set of 62 validators or it’s jailed.
