Cosmos' (ATOM) Warm-up & Reward Distribution Frequency

How long before you receive your first rewards and how often?

Contrary to most other networks, you will start receiving rewards as soon as you delegate!

Cosmos staking rewards are paid out in real-time, with rewards accruing approximately every 7 seconds. Your rewards will be distributed in a separate account from your delegation and are not compounded to your delegation. At any point you can decide to add them to your existing stake and start earning interest on them. The benefit of having your rewards paid out in a separate account is that they are not locked (you may withdraw them immediately) whereas it takes 21 days to unbond your delegated ATOM.
