Gateway to Staking : A How-to Stake & Delegate Guide — FLOW
Hi readers 👀 🙌 ,
Did you know that Flow’s first US dollar-backed stablecoin, Flow USD(FUSD), is available now? The launch of FUSD will strengthen cross-platform collaborations within the Flow ecosystem by allowing transactions of stable assets to flow freely across the whole network and will open up the ecosystem for whole groups of new participants!
So we figured, what better time than now to give you a step-by-step guide on staking your FLOW?
But before we jump right in, let’s take a quick look at Flow.
Flow is a blockchain built for the next generation of apps, games, and the digital assets that power them. Flow uses a multi-role architecture design to solve the scalability problem without composing a complex architecture as sharding. It allows developers to work on their projects based on Flow easily.
Flow is a global network of computers working together to maintain the security and integrity of its users’ data and this global network is made up of many individual nodes. The node operator has to temporarily stake a large number of FLOW to the network as a promise for integrity, this process of temporarily giving up tokens is called staking. Anyone can earn rewards by staking or by delegating tokens to the validators.
Before we get started with staking, here are some things to keep in mind when staking FLOW:
- Estimated reward rate : 9–10 %
- Unbonding period: 7–14 days
- Reward type : FLOW

DISCLAIMER: This is not financial advice. Staking, delegation, and cryptocurrencies involve a high degree of risk, and there is always the possibility of loss, including the failure of all staked digital assets. Additionally, delegators are at risk of slashing in case of security or liveness faults on some protocols. We advise you to do your due diligence before choosing a validator.
