Great news, KOY Community!

KOYN staking is LIVE on Mainnet!

Ready to make your KOYN work harder for you?

By staking your KOYN, you can potentially earn up to 20% APR (Annual Percentage Rate), all while supporting the security of the network. Let’s turn your KOYN holdings into a passive income stream!

Here’s your essential guide to get started.

Understanding KOYN Staking

  • What is KOYN Staking? KOYN staking allows you to contribute to network stability and earn rewards for doing so. It’s a win-win!
  • APR Power: Earn up to 20% APR (Annual Percentage Rate) on your staked KOYN. Note that the APR might change over time, and KOY Network has set aside a generous pool of 70 million KOYN per year for 5 years as staking rewards.
  • KOYN vs. SKOYN: SKOYN is an internal token that ensures accurate staking calculations. Think of it as your backstage pass to earning sweet KOYN rewards.
  • Liquid vs. Staked: “Liquid KOYN” is in your wallet, ready to be used. “Staked KOYN” is locked up earning those rewards.
  • Locked vs. Unlocked: Want more flexibility? Stake without a lockup period for immediate unstaking. Opt for a lockup to receive vested payments over time.

Why Stake Your KOYN?

  • Effortless Income: Generate passive returns on your KOYN holdings.
  • Support the Network: Play a role in strengthening the KOY Network ecosystem.
  • Growth Potential: As KOYN’s value increases, so do your potential rewards.
  • Flexibility: You can unstake your KOYN to regain full control and use them however you wish.
