What is Near (NEAR) Staking?

Support Near and earn interest by staking NEAR

When staking Near (NEAR) you are securing the network with the additional benefit of compounding your NEAR!

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

This is where P2P Validator comes in, we allow NEAR token holders to forget about all the heavy lifting i.e maintenance, surety bonds etc. by "delegating" their holdings to P2P who will act as a major validation node, generating rewards for users pro rata to the delegation.

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


Let's assume the current APR for NEAR is 8% with a fee of 7% and 1000 NEAR are delegated to

Reward = 1000*8% = 80 NEAR
Fee = 80*7% = 5.6 NEAR
Estimated balance after 1 year = 1000+80-5.6 = 1074.4 NEAR

By simply delegating my 1000 NEAR as I hold it, I will have supported the network and earned an additional 1074.4 NEAR after 1 year.

Please keep in mind that the APR specified are approximate and changes along with network condition.
