How to Stake KAVA Tokens on Trust Wallet

Risk Advisory:

Staking tokens does carry certain risks. It's crucial to fully understand these before you proceed.

High-Level View of Kava and KAVA Token:

Kava, a cross-chain DeFi platform, offers collateralized loans and stablecoins to users possessing major crypto assets such as BTC, XRP, BNB, and ATOM among others. Users can collateralize their crypto assets in return for Kava's stablecoin, USDX. KAVA token, anchoring the governance and staking aspects, plays a pivotal role in securing the network and voting on crucial parameters.

Understanding Delegating:

Delegating translates to bonding your tokens with a validator, and in exchange, you earn rewards from that validator. The validators, through a consensus-based protocol and transaction confirmation mechanism, govern the network. Block rewards are paid to validators and delegators in newly issued KAVA tokens as a motivational gesture for staking. To simplify terminologies, the delegation process is often referred to as Staking, a term widely accepted by users.

Note on Staking Process:

Upon staking your tokens, rewards are auto-generated. If you unstake your tokens, they get locked for 21 additional days during which no further rewards are generated and the tokens remain unmoved.

Insight on Reward Calculation: 

Individual Kava rewards hinge on Block Rewards, Block Time, Daily Network Rewards, and Total Staked. Proposed inflation might be at 7%, but actual inflation will be influenced by average Block Time and actual Block Reward. Use the KAVA Staking Calculator from StakingRewards to estimate potential rewards.
