Introduction

This guide will show you how to stake your Cosmos tokens using the official Cosmos staking portal. Before you begin, you will need to have a minimum of 10,000 ATOMs in your wallet.

Once you have logged in to the staking portal, click on the “Delegate” tab and enter the amount of ATOMs that you want to stake. You can also choose to auto-delegate, which will automatically delegate your ATOMs to the validator that you have selected.

You will then be required to confirm your transaction by clicking on the “Submit” button. After your transaction has been confirmed, your tokens will be locked for a minimum of 21 days.

You can check on the status of your delegation by clicking on the “Account” tab and then selecting “Delegations”. Here you will be able to see how much ATOMs you have delegated, as well as the validator that you have delegated to.

What is Cosmos?

Cosmos is a decentralized network of independent blockchains, each powered by BFT-consensus algorithms like Tendermint. The Cosmos Hub is the first blockchain in the Cosmos network and functions as the central peg zone where other blockchains can peg-in to and transact with one another. Other popular blockchains built on Tendermint include EOS, Binance Chain, and Terra.

To join the Cosmos Hub validator set and start earning staking rewards, you must first have some ATOM tokens. ATOM is the native token of the Cosmos Hub and is used to pay transaction fees, submit votes for validators, and reward communities who contribute valuable services to the network. You can buy ATOM on major cryptocurrency exchanges like Binance.

How to Stake Your Cosmos Tokens

If you want to stake your Cosmos tokens, you’ll need to do it through the Interchain Foundation’s Genesis Cosmos hub. The process is simple and only takes a few minutes. This section will give you a step-by-step guide on how to stake your Cosmos tokens.

Get some ATOM tokens

The first step is to get some ATOM tokens. ATOM is the native token of the Cosmos Network. You can buy ATOM on a cryptocurrency exchange like Binance or Kraken. Or, if you want to purchase ATOM directly with USD, you can do so on the Cosmos website. You’ll need to create an account and pass KYC (know your customer) verification.

Once you have some ATOM, you need to send them to a wallet that supports Cosmos staking. The official Cosmos Wallet App is a great option. You can also use other wallets like Trust Wallet, Atomic Wallet, and Exodus Wallet. Just make sure that the wallet you choose supports Cosmos staking and has your ATOM tokens.

Find a validator

The first step is to find a validator. A Cosmos validator is a decentralized, permissionless node that participates in the network to validate transactions and power the network. There are many validators to choose from, and you can find them by searching for “Cosmos Validators” on any major search engine.

Once you’ve found a validator, you’ll need to create an account with that validator. This account will be used to stake your Cosmos tokens. When creating your account, you’ll be asked to provide some personal information, such as your name and email address. You’ll also be asked to create a password.

After you’ve created your account, you’ll be given a address where you can send your Cosmos tokens. Send your Cosmos tokens to this address, and then you’ll be able to stake them with the validator.

Delegate your stake

You can delegate your stake in two ways: GUI or CLI. The former is more user-friendly, while the latter gives you more control.

With the GUI, you can use the “Delegate” tab to select a validator. You’ll need to enter the amount of ATOMs you want to delegate, your password, and (optionally) an memo. A memo is like a note you can add to help you remember why you delegated your stake to a particular validator.

With CLI, you need to use the `gaiacli` software. The first thing you need is the validator’s address; you can find this by searching for validators on the Cosmos Hub Explorer. Then, enter the following command:

“`
gaiacli tx staking delegate – address ValidatorAddress – amount delegatableshare – cosmos-denom ATOM – from delegatoraddress – gas 210000 – gas-prices 0.025uluna – memo optionalmemo
“`

Replace `ValidatorAddress`, `delegatableshare`, and `delegatoraddress` with the relevant information for your validator, amount of tokens to delegate, and wallet address (respectively). If you want to include a memo, replace `optionalmemo` with your desired text.
