What is Crypto Staking?

Crypto staking is the process of holding cryptocurrencies in a wallet to support the network and earn rewards. When you stake crypto, you are essentially locking up your coins to help maintain the network. In return for your contribution, you earn interest on your holdings.

Most proof-of-stake (PoS) cryptocurrencies require users to lock up their coins in a wallet for a set period of time. The longer you lock up your coins, the higher the rewards you can earn. Staking also helps keep the network secure by ensuring that there are enough active nodes to process transactions and validate blocks.

ADA is a PoS cryptocurrency that can be staked using the Exodus wallet. In this guide, we will show you how to stake ADA on Exodus.

  • Store your private keys in a safe place, such as a password manager or physical backup.

When will I start earning rewards for staking ADA?

You'll receive rewards every 5 days after that, as long as you keep staking. If you make subsequent deposits, they will be automatically staked and you will need to wait for the full 25-day cycle to complete before earning rewards from them. Rewards are paid out 10 days after you earn them.
