Put simply: staking is a way to earn passive rewards (in the form of more crypto) for holding certain cryptocurrencies. Staking lets you earn rewards on your crypto by contributing to the Proof of Stake (POS) network of a particular cryptocurrency. When you stake your crypto, you help the underlying blockchain of that asset become more secure and efficient. In exchange, you get rewarded with more assets from the network.
Currently you can stake the following with their corresponding Annual percentage yield (APY):
- • Ethereum (ETH) - 4.15%
- • Solana (SOL) - 4.6%
- • Cardano (ADA) - 2.63%
- • Polkadot (DOT) - 12%
Wealthsimple charges a fee for staking crypto assets equal to a percentage of staking rewards received. Your staking yields may vary based on a number of factors listed here. Staking involves risks and rewards are not guaranteed. To learn more about Staking and how to stake your coins, check out our Help Center article here.
Our app is designed to be simple — but if you run into any questions with your account, you can always contact our support team by chat, email, or phone and they’ll be happy to help. And yes, you’ll always be put in touch with a real human.
