WHAT IS STAKING

WHAT IS STAKING

As global adoption of crypto continues, methods of "mining" crypto have evolved.  In an effort to preserve the planet while promoting investment, a new consensus was formed.

Proof-of-Stake (as opossed to Proof-of-Work), similar to locking your money up with a bank in the form of a CD, earns you a percentage based ROI, relative to the total amount staked network-wide, paid out in TFUEL.

Tokens never leave your wallet, simply delegated to a node. You can unstake at any time and will have full access to your tokens within 48-72 hours.

STAKING THETA

STAKING THETA

THETA, governance token of the Theta Network, provides owners the ability to operate Guardian and Validator nodes on the blockchain, which in-turn, are used to produce blocks and participate in the protocol's governance. Without it, the network would cease to function. There is currently a fixed amount of one billion THETA tokens in circulation at this time.

The most common method of staking THETA is to a community run Delegated Guardian Node. There are two forms of Guardian Nodes: Owner operated and community operated. Fuel Foundry is the current operator of the FuelFoundry.io (previously: ThetaVader.io) community node.

If you wish to run your own Guardian Node, visit thetatoken.org and scroll down to where it says "JOIN THE NETWORK" follow the instructions and and install the appropriate OS specific Guardian Node software.

If you wish to stake with Fuel Foundry, click the stake button below to get in on the action and start receiving TFuel payouts today.

STAKING TFUEL

STAKING TFUEL

TFUEL is the operational token (fuel) of the Theta Network, without it, the network would cease to function.

Similar to how THETA is staked to a Guardian Node, TFUEL is staked to an Edge Node (EN); in doing so, the Edge Node is upgraded to an Elite Edge Node (EEN). ENs and EENs are responsible for providing the underlying fabric upon which all Theta Network consumer services operate. Including but not limited to: transcoding, video-relay, file caching, machine learning, AI, and more to come!

Those who stake to EENs will receive periodic payouts using the same distribution method when staking with THETA, however calculations are based on the Proof-of-Uptime consensus.

Similar to Guardian Nodes, Fuel Foundry operates geographically redundant community Elite Edge Nodes to ensure maximum uptime and payouts.

More information on how payouts of TFuel make it into your wallet can be found here (same algorithm is applied when staking TFUEL or THETA):
