Stake for Threshold
Threshold (T) offers services that enable blockchain user sovereignty. Stakers hold T tokens in escrow in order to run a node on the Threshold Network and earn rewards.
The staking information is highlighted in the table below:
|Minimum Staking Amount||40,000 T for each validator node (PRE node).|
|Rewards Distribution||Automatically accumulated to the staking address monthly. You need to claim the rewards to your wallet.|
|Unbonding Period||You can unstake at anytime 1 day after the staking.|
|Compounding||New staking required for compounding.|
2 How to Stake
Since the threshold staking transaction is happening on Ethereum, you can use the MetaMask wallet to conduct delegation activities. The MetaMask wallet Chrome extension can be downloaded here.
After setting up your wallet, navigate to the Safe Stake page and select Threshold, as shown below.
2.1 Launch New Node
To proceed, you'll need to create a new threshold validator node if you haven't already done so. If you have already created a node, you can skip to step 2.2. To create a new node, simply select the
Launch New Node option, as shown below.
Confirm the cost of the new node, enter a preferred name for your node, and then click the
Launch Node button as shown below.
2.2 Select Node
Once your node has been created and fully synced, select it from the
Validator drop-down list as illustrated below.
2.3 Connect Wallet
To proceed, connect your MetaMask wallet.
2.4 Enter Stake Amount
Once your wallet is connected, you should see your address and total available balance displayed. The next step is to enter the amount of T you want to stake, as shown below.
After entering the amount of T you want to stake, you must approve the transaction in your MetaMask wallet. Once you've approved it, a new popup will appear, confirming the success of the stake.
3 Add Gas Balance
The validator gas balance is used to pay for validating transactions on the blockchain. To add gas to your threshold validator nodes, navigate to the threshold staking information page and click the
Add Gas button at the top of the page, as illustrated below.
Since the threshold staking transaction is happening on the Ethereum mainnet, you must add ETH to your threshold validator node to pay the transaction gas fee.
To proceed, connect your wallet.
Enter the amount of gas you want to add to your validator node in ETH, as illustrated below.
Add Gas button, enter the amount of gas you want to add in ETH, and confirm the transaction in your MetaMask wallet. Wait a few seconds for the transaction to be processed on the blockchain, after which you'll see a message confirming its success.
4 Claim Reward and Unstake
4.1 How to Claim Reward
To claim your staking rewards, navigate to your threshold staking page and check your unclaimed reward balance. If you have any rewards available, you can claim them by clicking the
Claim Reward button.
After you click the
Claim Reward button, you can preview the rewards available to claim. Once ready, simply click the
Confirm button to complete the process.
Your staking account should now be credited with the claimed rewards.
4.2 How to Unstake
To unstake your T tokens, locate the validator they’re staked on (you can use the search bar to find your validator). Next, select that validator and choose
Unstake from the Actions dropdown menu, as shown below.
Next, connect your wallet and confirm your token amount. Ensure that the wallet you’re connecting with is the same one you used when staking your tokens initially; otherwise, you’ll receive an error message.
Confirm the transaction and click the
Unstake button to complete the process. Afterward, wait a few seconds for the transaction to be completed on the blockchain.
