How to Stake $DSM Tokens?

When you are all set it is time to learn how to stake $DSM.

Desmos holders can earn staking rewards, thereby increasing their $DSM holdings by simply staking their Desmos tokens with any one of the active validators on the network.

To stake $DSM tokens you must first buy some Desmos tokens and send them to a wallet that supports staking (Forbole X).

As of the article date, Desmos tokens are available on https://app.osmosis.zone/

Once you’ve transferred your tokens to a stake-supporting wallet, you may proceed with staking your tokens on the network to earn staking rewards, press [Delegate].

The next step is to decide the number of $DSM tokens you want to delegate, type the decided amount in the input field and click [Delegate]. But do not forget to leave some $DSM for fees, 1 $DSM should be enough.

⚠️ The [memo] field is optional and you may leave it empty if you’re not sending your tokens to exchange.

Search and select StakeCraft Validator, press [Confirm] to confirm your transaction, and enter your wallet password.

Notice: Staking will lock your funds for 21+ days

You will need to undelegate in order for your staked assets to be liquid again. This process will take 21 days to complete.

To manage your staking operations you need to open a Forbole X extension. Click anywhere in the highlighted area. Here you can see your balance and if you scroll a little bit down and you will be able to Claim, Redelegate, Undelegate, or even Delegate more $DSM tokens to the selected validator(s).
