Earn rewards while you stake your xcKSM tokens. Don't have xcKSM tokens yet? Get them on the Transfer page.
To stake your xcKSM tokens and start receiving rewards, you should go to the Stake & Unstake page.
On the Stake & Unstake page, choose the Stake mode.
If you see a card like that one below,you're all set up and ready to stake some xcKSM tokens.
At the top of the card, you can check your current xcKSM and stKSM balance from a connected Metamask account.
When you stake some xcKSM, you receive stKSM in return. stKSM is a liquid token that represents your KSM staked balance on the Kusama chain. Over time, as your delegation accrues rewards, the amount of your stKSM increases.
APR in the second row stays for "Annual percentage rate".
Staking is simple. Enter the desired amount of xcKSM in the input box. To be able to stake some tokens, you need to approve them first. In that case, you will see the Unlock Tokens button.
Click on it and confirm the transaction in a Metamask popup. Wait for the transaction to be confirmed.
After that, you will see that the Unlock Tokens button has changed to the Stake button.
Repeat the steps above – click the button, confirm the transaction in the Metamask popup, and wait for it to complete successfully.
