What is Staking?

Staking is the process of actively holding digital assets and participating in transaction validation (similar to mining) on a proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain. it allows investors to hold assets and receive crypto rewards with frequent reward payouts.

NDAX Stake allows Canadians to stake their digital assets while being able to easily manage and monitor their staking subscriptions and profits over time. With NDAX, there are no lock-up periods and our clients can exit from their staking positions anytime (with the exception of ETH*).

How to Set up Staking on NDAX

1. On the NDAX menu click on Staking on the left side panel.

2. Select an eligible coin to stake from your staking dashboard.

3. Choose a staking plan.

4. Track your staking amount, average APY%, total profits and more.

How does earning rewards with NDAX Stake work?

When you stake your digital assets with NDAX for an allotted period of time, you automatically earn crypto rewards, which can be redeemed at different periods depending on the coin and staking plan. Different coins offer different reward payout frequencies.

Staking is currently available through the NDAX web app, with mobile app integration coming soon.
