This tutorial helps you claim, stake and manage CRE tokens using the Keplr Browser Extension together with the Crescent UI.
The Crescent network aims to create innovative DeFi tools through advancements in inter-blockchain technology. If you delegated ATOM before 01-01-2022 00:00:00, you may be eligible to receive their native token CRE!
Liquid staking allows participants to earn staking rewards without the need to lock their assets.
When liquid staking you will receive bCRE which is the token that represents staked CRE. bCRE lets you earn staking rewards for holding these tokens in your wallet. They are fully liquid, so you can use them for your needs at any time — trade, sell, exchange, invest in DeFi projects, etc.
When you unstake your bCRE, you will get more CRE than what you originally liquid staked. The extra CRE that you received after unstaking are the rewards that you earned during your time staking.
3. A pop-up will appear to select which wallet you would like to connect. Select Keplr Wallet.
4. If you have not already logged into your Keplr account, a pop-up will appear to do so. Enter your password to log in.
5. You will be asked to add Columbus and Cresent blockchain to Keplr. Next you will have to approve the crescent app connection to your Keplr account.
6. You can view your eligibility to claim CRE through the following website: https://app.crescent.network/airdrop.
If eligible, you will have claimed 20% of the CRE you can receive from the airdrop. In the next section "Claiming the remaining CRE from the Airdrop" we will show you how to retrieve the rest.
You should now be able to see your CRE balance on both your Keplr account and the Crescent staking page. On Keplr wallet, select the networks on the top of the extension and your balance will be indicated as shown in the image below.
7. To start staking, go to the Crescent staking page where your balances should now be shown. Enter the amount to stake in the input field.
8. A pop-up will appear to approve the staking request transaction.
9. You will see a confirmation of your stake being completed in the top right hand corner of the Crescent staking page.
You are now the owner of bCRE! You can view your bCRE balance in your Keplr Wallet.
Thats it! You are now successfully staking and will receive your staking rewards upon unstaking.
1. You will notice that upon liquid staking the first time, you will receive an additional 20% CRE from the airdrop.
2. To receive the next 20%, go to Crescent's swap page. Select which tokens you wish to swap, and make a transaction of any size.
Approve the transaction. When completed, you will receive another 20% from the airdrop.
3. Next go to Crescent's farm page. Select a pool that you wish to add liquidity with.
Select any amount you wish to deposit into the pool. You must hold both tokens.
Approve the transaction. When completed, you will receive another 20% from the airdrop.
4. The last 20% can be claimed by participating in a governance proposal vote. When a proposal is submitted, go to Crescent's governance page and place your vote. You will then receive the last CRE from the Airdrop.
You can find more information on Crescent official docs page.
Thank you for your interest in the Crescent network!

<p>The <a href="https://www.nucypher.com/">NuCypher Network</a> has merged with the <a href="https://keep.network/">KEEP Network</a> to form the <a href="https://threshold.network/">Threshold Network</a>. We have checked the <a href="https://docs.nucypher.com/en/latest/">official instructions</a> and summarised all the steps required to stake T in this short guide.</p><p>If you have an existing NU/KEEP stake, you can withdraw it and then upgrade tokens to T and stake. However if you are subject to a vesting agreement, your unvested stake will not be immediately withdrawable, but you can still stake it in Threshold. You will find instructions in the second part of this guide.</p><h3 id="how-to-stake-t-when-you-have-liquid-tokens-nu-or-keep"><strong>How to stake T when you have liquid tokens (NU or KEEP)</strong></h3><p>1.

<p><br>On April 11, P2P took ownership of Lido on Solana becoming the new team in charge of its growth and development, with the goal to build-out the project in alignment with Lido’s, Solana’s and P2P’s values. <br><br>Liquid Solana Staking was launched on Lido in September 2021 with the collaboration of Chorus One as an initiative to grow the presence of Lido across staking networks. Thanks to the members involved, the project has reached 3,000,000+ SOL staked and achieved numerous stSOL integrations. P2P has been involved since the beginning of the year, participating in boosting TVL in collaboration with Lido through their incentivization program, Liquidity Providers launches and Protocols integrations.</p><p>Due to some organisational changes at Chorus One, a <a href="https://research.lido.fi/t/lido-on-solana-proposed-transition-from-chorus-one-to-p2p/1887">proposal was passed</a> to transfer the ownership of Lido on Solana to P2P. <br><br>“We are incredibly grateful to Chorus One for all their hard work on the development and initial launch of the project, they have laid a solid foundation for us to grow its success and presence within the flourishing Solana ecosystem.” - <strong><em>Vasiliy Shapovalov, CTO at P2P</em></strong><br><br>The exact terms and timelines of the transition to P2P can be found here: <a href="https://research.lido.fi/t/lido-on-solana-proposed-transition-from-chorus-one-to-p2p/1887">Lido on Solana - Proposed Transition from Chorus One to P2P.</a><br><br>Lots of work still needs to be done. Solana was among the networks with the highest growth in 2021 (going up to 6th in market cap) and the requirements and standards of the community are high.<br><br><em>“P2P Team has outstanding staking expertise in Solana. We will do our best to make Lido on Solana highly valuable for the ecosystem by improving validator conditions and standards, driving the DeFi ecosystem and increasing new users growth” </em><br>- <em><strong>Nikolai Abeliashev, Product Manager for Lido on Solana </strong></em><br><br>P2P Validator have cemented themselves as one of the pillars of the staking community, working closely with each network to achieve maximum growth.<br></p><h2 id="plan-to-be-executed"><strong>Plan to be executed</strong></h2><p><br>As an initiative to improve Solana’s network performance & security, and to empower the community, P2P plans to focus on improving Solana Network decentralisation by bringing new node operators and increasing the number of validators part of the Supermajority (a large group of validators that together control 66.66% of the total stake) into Solana on Lido’s set. The decision to add new node operators will be based on validator historic performance (parameters to be annotated soon), ecosystem participation and general validating experience purchased. Through educational programs and clear performance metrics, P2P will ensure a high standard of operations that will be available on a public dashboard with open validator performance data. Lastly, by providing clear commission instructions and by balancing the number of validators and stakes in the pool, P2P plans to fairly distribute the profitability for validators. <br><br>Further, with $300+ million in staked SOL, Lido on Solana can expand its presence within the <a href="https://solana.lido.fi/defi">Solana Defi Community</a> further through unique integrations with value-adding protocols, wallets and dapps, incentivisation programs and community initiatives.</p><p>A dedicated team has been set up to carry out the above plan and ensure what was promised, is delivered.<br><br>With Lido on Solana under new ownership, exciting times are ahead for the project. Quality & performance improvements, transparency of validation, boosting DeFi economics, and of course attracting more users are all in this year's goals.</p><h2 id="what-is-sol-liquid-staking"><br><strong>What is SOL liquid staking?</strong></h2><p><br>Liquid staking allows participants to earn staking rewards without the need to lock their assets or the need to maintain the infrastructure required.</p><p>stSOl is Lido’s liquid staking token for Solana. With it users can earn staking rewards while being able to participate in DeFi protocols at the same time. stSOL can also be exchanged at any time for SOL to let users instantly unstake their tokens without the need to wait for the cooldown. Unstaking directly from Lido is still possible but you are subject to the 3 day cooldown before you get access to your tokens.</p><p>stSOL is a wrapped token, this means that when staking with LIDO your staking rewards accrue to the wrapper and the value of stSOL increases over time. The current exchange rate of stSOL - SOl can be found in the <a href="https://solana.lido.fi/">staking page</a> at all times.</p><p>stSOL can be used in a variety of expanding DeFI protocols across the Solana ecosystem. A list of guides for different protocols can be found <a href="https://help.lido.fi/en/collections/3275637-liquid-staking-on-solana">here</a>. With liquid staking you can earn additional income on your tokens, while still earning staking rewards. For example, you can provide liquidity on a stSOL - SOL trading pair to earn fees from the pool on top of the staking rewards. Lido on Solana are looking to expand the number of protocols and use cases for stSOL so keep an eye out for new developments on their social media channels.</p><div class="kg-card kg-button-card kg-align-center"><a href="https://lido.fi/solana" class="kg-btn kg-btn-accent">Get started by visiting Lido on Solana! </a></div><p></p><h2 id="about-p2p-validator"><strong>About P2P Validator </strong></h2><p><br>P2P Validator began in 2018 with a mission to positively influence the development of POS technologies.
