What is Quant Staking?
First let’s briefly touch on what staking is. Staking is a process of confirming transactions on a blockchain. Think of mining that does not require as much computing power or energy.
Whereas with a proof of work algorithms, miners confirm the validity of transactions, in a proof of stake version, it is done by people who lock up a certain amount of the cryptocurrency in the protocol.
So, this brings us to Quant staking on CoinMetro. We’ve built this to test a user friendly model with a low barrier to entry to give the opportunity of earning staking rewards for your Quant on CoinMetro.
Usually you need a rather substantial amount of crypto locked up to start earning rewards. 32 ETH for example if you with to collect Ethereum staking rewards. Considering today’s market price, this may not be the amount you wish to start exploring staking with.
On CoinMetro we don’t have a minimum amount required for staking. You can earn 2.5-5% on the amount of Quant deposited. The higher the amount, the higher the returns.
How Does it Work?
It’s pretty simple!
All you need to do is deposit Quant to your CoinMetro account. No need to lock anything or opt in, simply deposit Quant into your main wallet and you will start earning your Quant staking rewards.
Don’t have any Quant? Don’t worry, you can buy it on CoinMetro 🙂
From the moment Quant is received in your wallet you will start to accrue your staking rewards. The rewards accrue daily and are paid out every month into your account.
The Quant staking rewards are paid in our native token XCM. This is our platform token, which all of our fees are transacted in. Also, one of the hottest tokens this year, so you should definitely take advantage of it. Locking XCM also gives you rewards, which you can read more about here.
The rewards will be visible in the “Transaction history” on your CoinMetro dashboard, showing as a pending bonus. This is pinned to the top of the transaction list, easy to find, you can’t miss it.
The accrued XCM will automatically be credited to your CoinMetro account wallet balance and show as available on the 16th of each month. This is when all of your accrued XCM is moved to your main wallet where you can use it freely to trade, swap or lock into our ecosystem for greater rewards.
Currently, QNT holders will be paid at a fixed rate of 2.5% per year. You can earn a fixed rate of up to 5% per year if you belong to one of our rebate tiers by buying and locking up XCM. You can join or leave a tier any time, the accrued rewards will not be affected. Only future rewards would move up to down between 2.5% and 5%.
You can withdraw and deposit QNT any time, it will just change the amount which the staking reward is based on. The accrued rewards are based on the EUR equivalent of QNT on your account during the daily snapshot.
