Mina Protocol (MINA) Staking Guide

Post preview image

This delegation guide will walk you through the steps of staking MINA tokens using the client interface to earn Mina Protocol staking rewards.

To get started, please ensure that you have a wallet funded with MINA tokens.

Step 1: Set up the environment

To get started here, install Ubuntu 18.04/Debian 9. Upon successful installation, please follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Add repository:
    echo "deb [trusted=yes] http://packages.o1test.net release main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mina.list
  2. Update:
    apt-get update
  3. Install the latest Mina daemon:
    apt-get install -y curl unzip mina-mainnet=1.1.3-48401e9
    (check release notes for the newest version)

To confirm correct configuration, check the version:
mina version
(you should see: Commit 48401e92d94948c066c03ca76326c065e5cbfc92 on branch master)

Step 2: Delegate MINA

Upon successfully configuring the staking environment, refer to the steps below to start delegating.

1. Unlock your account.

mina account unlock -public-key $MINA_PUBLIC_KEY

2. Delegate to a selected block producer.

If you wish to stake with P2P, use our delegation address:

3. Paste the following code:

mina client delegate-stake \
    -receiver B62qs2Lw5WZNSjd8eHBUZXFYyRjV8oKtrZMFDn1S1Ye62G71xCQJMYM \
    -sender $MINA_PUBLIC_KEY \
    -fee 0.1

Your delegation will start to take part in consensus after the next epoch or two (~15 - 29 days). There is no MINA un-bonding period and staking rewards are distributed manually every epoch (~14d 21h) and automatically staked if your account is delegating.

If you delegate from an account with locked tokens it is highly recommended to transfer your rewards to a separate fresh account and stake from there to increase the probability of receiving a supercharged coinbase.

If you have any questions, please refer to our Telegram chat. We are always open for communication.
