What is on-chain staking?

On-chain Staking is a great way for you to passively generate rewards from your cryptocurrency holdings, which might otherwise be sitting idle in your Crypto wallet.

When you stake your cryptocurrency on a blockchain protocol, you are participating in maintaining the protocol’s security and are incentivised to do so by receiving rewards from the protocol in the form of staking yields.
On-chain Staking rewards are typically expressed in annual percentage rate (APR) terms. For example, a 5% APR means you would, in theory, receive $5 annually for every $100 worth of crypto you stake on-chain. Different blockchain protocols have different APRs, and there is typically no limit to how much you stake on-chain for any cryptocurrency.  Your rewards may vary due to price fluctuations of the underlying cryptocurrency, change in the number of validators, changes to the protocol, and many other factors.
On-chain staking is an integral part of a Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchain, which is designed to securely verify transactions. By participating, you are ultimately contributing to a process critical to its security and operation. In PoS blockchains, transactions are verified by validators who have to stake an amount of a blockchain’s token to participate in the verification process. In return, validators get rewarded with more tokens. If they engage in malicious behaviour or fail to validate (e.g., by going offline), a portion of their stakes could be taken away. PoS is just one of many consensus mechanisms that blockchains employ to verify transactions before they are added to the blockchain. Some blockchains, such as Ethereum, which transitioned to PoS in 2022 (called ‘The Merge’), require validators to stake a large amount of native tokens. In Ethereum’s case, the current minimum requirement is 32 ETH. However, there are other ways to participate in on-chain staking even without the required number of tokens.
As with all investments, there are some considerations and risks to take into account before on-chain staking or locking up your crypto:
Price movements and total return:While on-chain staking lets you receive yield, an important consideration is the concept of total returna — a combination of capital appreciation (or loss) and the yield received. Crypto prices can be volatile, so keep an eye on potential capital gains or losses along with your staking rewards.Bonding period:Some tokens have minimum  bonding periods where users cannot withdraw their tokens. Furthermore, when withdrawing tokens from a staking pool, there could be a specific waiting time for each blockchain before the tokens are received. So if you want to use your virtual assets for other purposes (such as trading) during a particular period of time, you may not want to stake your virtual assets.Validator penalties:There is always a risk that the validator fails to perform their tasks properly or engages in malicious behaviour. These improper validator actions may be penalised by having their rewards cut or the staked amount taken away, potentially affecting other users in the pool, as well.Fees:Staking pools and crypto exchanges may also charge fees or commissions.Hacks:Always be cautious of potential hacks or vulnerabilities that could jeopardise your locked-up funds.
In summary, on-chain staking passively generates rewards on your cryptocurrency holdings. However, there are risks and downsides to consider, including validator penalties, market price movements that could affect the total return, hacks, fees, and the minimum staking period. Do your research, exercise due diligence, and make informed decisions about whether on-chain staking aligns with your financial goals!
ETH Staking
Liquid Staking

Do more with your staked ETH

Liquid staking is an innovative solution to the problem of illiquidity for staked assets, where users cannot access their crypto when it’s earning rewards or locked by the protocol during the unbonding period.
With liquid staking, they can wrap their staked assets for a tradeable receipt token. The receipt token can also be redeemed back for the staked asset at a likely higher conversion rate that accounts for the accrued staking rewards.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you stake more of the same asset on-chain, the new staked assets will begin receiving rewards when the transaction status changes to 'Staked' after the Activation Period has ended. Your previous stake will not be impacted.
You can view the status of your on-chain Staking request by tapping the Super Menu > Staking > My Portfolio and selecting the relevant asset. Here’s what each transaction status means:
Pending:Your on-chain Staking request is received by Crypto.com and is being passed on to the relevant blockchain validator.Activating:Crypto.com has accepted your on-chain Staking request and your assets will soon be staked. This status will remain until your assets have been accepted by the relevant blockchain validator and staked on-chain. Note that the staking frequency for Crypto.com depends on the individual blockchain protocol’s reward cycle.Staked:Your assets are successfully staked on-chain and will start generating rewards.Rejected:Your on-chain Staking request has been rejected and your assets have been returned to your Crypto wallet. You may initiate another staking request or reach out to our Customer Support Team at [email protected].
The reward rates for successful validations are determined  by the blockchain protocol. The rates listed in the Crypto.com App are an estimation based on data from validators and are subject to change. The actual rewards will be distributed to you when they are generated (or unbonded, as applicable) by the respective blockchain protocol. They will be the rewards received from validators after the deduction of service fees charged by Crypto.com. Crypto.com does not guarantee any particular rate of return. Please note that only virtual assets that have already been staked on-chain are eligible for rewards for the time the rewards are due.
You will receive rewards up to three times a week, depending on the blockchain protocols.
You can view your on-chain Staking rewards by tapping on the Super Menu > Staking > My Portfolio and selecting the relevant asset. Note that only rewards greater than 0.00000001 will be distributed.
Unbonding is the process of withdrawing your stake from a network. There is typically a waiting period determined by the relevant blockchain protocol, which serves the purpose of  preventing malicious actors from suddenly withdrawing their stakes at the expense of the protocol at large, whether in response to a market shift or as a deliberate attack on the protocol. The unbonding period is an important mechanism for maintaining the security and stability of Proof of Stake networks. Virtual assets will not generate rewards during the unbonding period. The length of the unbonding period is determined by the blockchain protocol, not Crypto.com.
On-chain staking enables you to participate in securing and validating a particular blockchain protocol of your choosing. The blockchain protocol incentivises your participation by periodically distributing rewards to you. On the other hand, Earn allows you to receive rewards from us by simply allocating cryptocurrency that you already hold in your Crypto Wallet to an Earn plan in the Crypto.com App. For more information on Earn, please refer to this FAQ page. You should carefully consider the features of both on-chain Staking and Earn (such as flexibility, rates of return, etc.) to determine which works best for you.
