Stake for NEAR Protocol

1 Overview

The NEAR Protocol allows users to participate in the network consensus and earn rewards by staking their NEAR tokens. Stakers receive a portion of the transaction fees generated by the inflation process, which is determined by the total amount of NEAR staked.

The staking information is highlighted in the table below:

Minimum Staking Amount30 NEAR registration fee for each validator.
Rewards DistributionAutomatically distributed to the validator address.
Unbonding Period~48 hours.
CompoundingAuto compounding.
Rewards AccumulationPer epoch (~12 hours)


Actual staking does not happen on InfStones. InfStones only allows you to create your own NEAR validator pools that you and other NEAR users can use to stake your tokens. Tokens are staked in a validator pool via the official NEAR wallet.

2 Stake

Navigate to Safe Stake on your InfStones dashboard and click Stake Now button.

Select NEAR Protocol as shown below.

To create a new node, simply click on the Launch New Node option as shown below.

Enter a preferred name for your node and click Launch Node.

Once your node has finished syncing, you'll need to repeat the previous steps to register your node. However, this time, select the newly registered node. Once you've done that, you'll need to connect your newly launched node to your NEAR wallet. To do so, simply click on the Authorize button as shown below.

A new page will prompt you to log in to your NEAR wallet. Enter your credentials, and then click Next.

Afterward, click Connect.

Fill in your NEAR wallet ID, then click Confirm.

Now, go back to your InfStones dashboard. Fill in the NEAR wallet ID you authorized in the previous step and click Verify.

After you've verified your NEAR wallet ID in the previous step, the next step is to assign a unique pool name to your validator. Enter a preferred pool name here and click the Check Availability button to see if it is available.


  • NEAR pool names cannot be duplicated.
  • Pool names can only contain lowercase letters, numbers, dashes (-), and underscores (_).
  • Uppercase letters and other special characters are not allowed.

Once you've chosen a name and the check has passed, click Stake to complete the process.

When everything is finished, you should see a success message like the one below.

Now that you've successfully configured your new validator pool, navigate to the Staking page on your NEAR wallet dashboard and click the button as shown below.

To proceed, use the search box to find the validator you just registered, then click the Select button next to it.

Confirm the validator's name one more time, then click the button highlighted below to proceed.

Enter the amount of NEAR tokens you want to stake on the next page, then click the Submit Stake button to continue.

Finally, click the Confirm button as shown below to complete the transaction.

A message should appear confirming that the staking operation was successful. You can also navigate to your NEAR wallet dashboard to track your rewards and perform other operations, such as unstaking your tokens.
