What is Solana (SOL) Staking?

When staking Solana (SOL) you are supporting the network with the additional benefit of compounding your SOL!

Staking SOL is the process of holding an SOL "stake" to partake in and support the operations in the Solana network to receive rewards. In order to be a "Validator" and participate in these operations, one is required to maintain a server running continuously, have technological know-how and experience, and have a significant self-bond (surety bond).

This is where the Validator comes in. We allow SOL token holders to forget about all the heavy lifting, i.e., maintenance, surety bonds, etc., by "delegating" their holdings to P2P to receive these rewards. We accumulate users' stakes and act as a major validation node, receiving and allocating staking rewards between our users pro rata to the delegation.

Users that choose to stake with P2P maintain full custody of their SOL at all times, and P2P will never have access to them.


Let's assume the current APR for SOL staking is 7% with a fee of 7%, and 1000 SOLs are delegated to

Reward: 1000*7% = 70 SOL
Fee = 70*7% = 4.9 SOL
Estimated balance after 1 year = 1000+70-4.9 = 1065.1 SOL

By simply delegating my 1000 SOL as I hold it, I will have supported the network and earned an additional 1065.1 SOL after 1 year.
