Frequently asked questions

Staking is the process of securing the network via locking up your tokens. It serves the same purpose as mining in a Proof-of-Work network such as Bitcoin.

Validator nodes validate transactions and the staked tokens act as an economic incentive for stakers to play by the rules of the protocol.
While staking means locking up your tokens, they are still in your wallet and only you have access to them. You can unlock your funds anytime.

By staking, you actively participate in securing the network. You will earn passive income by getting rewarded in FTM.

You can use Fantom mobile wallets (iOS and Android) or the web/desktop version.

Yes. Nobody except you will have access to your tokens. Make sure not to lose your mnemonic phrase or private key.

If you stake to a validator node that acts maliciously, you can lose all your staked tokens. It is important that you choose the validator node wisely and make sure they’re reputable.

No. In any case, a validator does not have access to any other tokens than its own. However, if a validator acts maliciously all the funds staked to that node can be lost.

If a validator node goes offline, it stops receiving rewards since it’s not helping secure the network anymore. When it comes back online, the rewards resume.

You can delegate as many times as you want, as long as you use a different address every time. At the moment only one delegation per wallet is possible.

No, you cannot use your tokens while staking. To withdraw them, you have to unstake them first. Unstaking takes 7 days.

If you unstake your tokens during the lockup period, you will lose the rewards and those rewards will be burned.

It takes 7 days. During that time you will not receive rewards. Once the 7 days pass, you can withdraw the tokens from your wallet.

Long unbonding periods create stability in the network and prevent attackers from withdrawing their stake before the effects of their attack is reflected on the market

Not at all. Staking happens on-chain, so it’s completely independent from your computer, mobile device or wallet. Once you have staked your tokens, you can safely log out from your wallet and if you want you can periodically access it to check your rewards balance.
