What is Staked?
Staked helps institutional investors reliably and securely compound their crypto assets by 5% - 100% annually via staking and lending. Staking on your own requires a capital investment up-front, specialty software and hardware expertise, servers in a data center, and exclusivity of block producers. Staked offers the industry’s only 100% SLA for block rewards, automatic payouts, and detailed reporting.
How does staking with Staked work?
Staking (also called Proof of Stake) is built-in inflation that maintains the long-term security of the network. New coins are created to pay validator nodes who "vote" secure the coin and process transaction. While validation requires technical expertise and need to be a one of the very largest owners, stake can be pooled.
Staked runs a validator node as a service. You delegate the voting weight of your currency to our node and earn the block rewards less our fee. While you hold on to your currency, this process is not entirely risk-free. See our website for complete details and risks.

What are the minimums?
There is no minimum for delegating to Staked, while there is a minimum of $100K to lend to Staked.
What is the minimum amount of time that I can stake with Staked?
Staking usually requires an unbonding period, which is the period of time you need to hold staked currency before it can be sold or transferred. This ranges from one to two days in the case of Livepeer and Tezos and can be as long as four months in the case of Decred tokens. Staked does not impose any minimum staking period but you will be subject to the unbonding period of the specific currency.
Does Staked have any KYC requirements?
We require KYC/AML for lending with Staked. Contact us to learn more.
Can I borrow from Staked?
We are not a lender and have no plans to get into lending.
Does Staked charge fees?
We pay 90% of the block rewards to delegates. We have a 100% uptime SLA, so if we aren't producing blocks you will still get paid.

I have $1,000,000 USD. What kind of return can I expect by staking it?
We can not estimate a return on a fiat investment. You will need to determine which currencies are appropriate and we can help you understand the yields available and run the technology (nodes) to securely and reliably deliver your staking rewards.
There are significant differences between the underlying cryptocurrencies that are a very material factor in your overall investment analysis. The yields represent our best estimate of the amount of additional currency you will receive through staking. But cryptocurrency prices have been very volatile historically, and this can impact the return.
What is the relation between nominal, real yield and inflation?
Inflation is defined as the growth in supply of tokens in a given PoS network. Real yields can be positive or negative, depending on the combination of the two.
The real yield is the nominal yield adjusted for inflation using the formula:
(1 + Yield)/(1 + Inflation) - 1. Stakers earn the nominal yield less Staked’s commission.
