- Staking is a consensus mechanism based on NPoS (Proof of Stake / Proof of Stake). Token holders obtain rewards and benefits through pledge, voting, delegation, and locking.
- A small amount of RING must be prepared in Darwinia Mainnet Network's address as fee.
You may have a account with
RING/KTON and want to earn fresh
RING/KTON. You could do so as validator, which requires a node running 24/7.
If you do not have such node or do not want to bother, you can still earn
RING/KTON by nominatoring another validator.
Specially attention should be paid to:
- Pick your validators carefully - if they do not behave properly, they will get slashed and you will lose
- While your
RING/KTONare staked by nominating a validator, they are
locked(bonded). You can receive new
RINGin your account but you cannot stake as validator or transfer
RINGaway from your account. You can un-nominate at any time to stop staking your funds. There is an unbonding period of 14 days on Darwinia main network.

Controller accountcan be set to the same account. If you hold more tokens or have higher security requirements, it is recommended to set up different accounts here.
Value bonded The total amount of the stash balance that will be at stake in any forthcoming rounds (should be less than the total amount available). This part of the tokens will be temporarily bonded. bonding takes 14 days to unbond; you can choose to bond RING or KTON.
Payment destination The destination account for any payment as either a nominator or validator.
Lock limit Optional; bond RING promise for 1-36 months to get additional KTON rewards. (Promise to lock to accept user terms)
If you unlock RING in advance within the lock limit, you will be charged a penalty of 3 times the KTON reward (In the absence of sufficient KTON, the RING can not be used for payment of fines).
